hot hot heat

Saturday, September 18, 2010
i'm glad i don't have epilepsy, because they put on one helluva strobe light show.

i've lucked out big, because i'm on some eternal guest list since joining AEG Live, and lucky for me, a number of really great artists are in our venues this fall. hooray!

tonight, hot hot heat, 22-20s and hey roseta!* (*interactive portion. if you'd like to hear me say all those bands with great inflection, call 303-377-1666 and select option #2)

i've bought a few of hhh's songs here and there, but never fully committed to an album (okay, except for the album that one of the tetris league co-owners burned for me). would i have gone had i not gotten in for free? eh... maybe not. but i was pleasantly surprised. Singer Steven Bays can belt it pretty damn solid. And from their own mouths, they've done their latest album, and it stands up pretty solid to all of those in the past.

I spent the majority of the show trying to figure out if the drummer was a male/female - and was more confused when i settled on man, and Bays introduced him as Holly (turns out it's Paul Hawley). The rest of the time was soaking up a very good vibe in the room from all the happy dancers - one of my favorite things about live shows. That'll never go out of style.

So far on my list of "to-see" this fall include (click the name to grab a sample)
9/7 - jamie lidell (he was phenom)
9/18 Beats Antique (because i've made 8trillion of their posters and maybe i can bring my hoop?)
9/24 Matt & Kim
9/28 sharon jones and the dap kings / grace potter & the nocturnals
10/2 muse
10/3 jimmy eat world (still fond memories of them in flag at the old orpheum)
10/4 james ("this bed is on fire with passionate love...")
10/5 the eels (going with one of their original drummers - Daren Hahn)
10/9 futureheads
10/11 ra ra riot
10/13 lissie (squeal!)
10/13 menomena (strictly because they names their band after this ... at least i think they did. i'll have to research that)
10/19 the script (yeah... ya caught me. they're from ireland. what's a girl gonna do?)
10/22 apples in stereo
10/25 interpol / white rabbits (lovvvvve wr!)
10/27 mumford and sons
10/29 pepper / mishka
11/5 paul oakenfold
11/6 kate nash!!!!
11/14 lifehouse
11/16 kt tunstall
11/18 brandon flowers (maybe... verdict's still out on that one)
11/19 OZOMATLI!!!!!! (FINALLY!!!!!!!)
11/19 Gracious Few (I want to go - they remind me of the good period of the 90s. buuut... ozomatli!)
11/26 3oh3!
12/3 needtobreathe
... (and more to come, i'm sure)

now if only we could get black keys, white stripes, cat power, handsome boy modeling school, m.i.a, matty nay, the strokes, nelly furtado... you know, just to name a few (oh, and if the postal service could go on tour and not just rest comfortably on the ONE album from 2004).

if you want to go with me to any of these shows, give a girl a shout. gotta spread the vip wealth. and it'd be fun to dance with you. :)
