And a shout out to Steve from yfrog, Adam Orth again on the scene (thanks for the… Continue
Back in the glorious city of San Francisco, todays big challenge was sorting out how to get the equipment and everything fitting in the very unusual [but pleasing to the eye] "thrust stage" hall of the Nob Hill Masonic Center. Many of the normal tech conventions present in regular theaters were totally absent, giving our courageous crew quite a conundrum. They worked everything out in time for the "Blue" show, of course, but it wasnt the easiest setup theyve done! Meanwhile, I… Continue

After a long overnight drive from New Orleans, we rolled into the ATL at about 7 AM. Some opted to scurry into the warmth and quiet of the hotel, others kept napping in their bus bunks, to wake up later already at the rather longish named Chastain Park Amphitheatre Live Nation. Soon we shall all reunite for the rock show. Opening up the show tonight is the raucous J. Roddy Walston and The Business!… Continue
The gang has reformulated in Louisiana in New Orleans' French Quarter and now we are rolling over to the VooDoo Experience Festival in style. There are a ton of cool bands playing this festival over the 3 days in the weekend, but were not sure how many were going to be able to see till we get there.
The VooDoo Experience was quite an experience - perhaps inspired by the looming Halloween, or simply because of the wild energy of New Orleans, there were… Continue

Mucho mas fun was had by all. In attendance were all the Jackass regulars and pretty much anyone who had anything to do with them, a menagerie of famous and infamous types including Spike Jonze, Tony Hawk, Handsome Jack, and Ron Jeremy(!?!).
Death To False Metal is a special album of weezer songs that were prepared for albums in the past but never quite fit in. They have been gathered and rehabilitated into an album all their own now. Death To False Metal is sort of like… Continue
