coming to a warped tour stop near you @dearjackhq @1111am

meant to post this a loooong time ago, but now is as good of a time as any! warped tour kicks off this friday, june 25th @ the carson home depot center. a date near you can be found here. i will be joining the dear jack foundation/11:11 A.M. crew on sunday @ the ventura date. i'm going to leave at home any band logo sweaters... just in case.

oh, and THIS is happening:

since i'm going to be there anyway, i guess i'll go check out taylor momsen's band. idk. did i just lose all credibility there?

i'm obsessed with the mess that's america

so, life goes on. i'm working full time now which is equal parts YAY PAYCHECK and OH NOES, NO TIME FOR SHOWS. not that i don't have time, but my body doth protest when i'm anywhere that's not my bed by around 11PM or so.

despite my battle with old age, i did make it out to a few shows these past few weeks. angus & julia stone @ masonic lounge (hwd cemetery), mumford & sons @ fonda, the xx @ fonda, bikelock/kid is qual @ silver lake lounge... all sorts of ridiculous, adventurous fun. might head out to william tell @ hotel cafe this thursday?

totally excited b/c i scored tickets to the now SOLD OUT first time in LA marina and the diamonds' show @ the troubadour on july 6, 2010! someone needs to be my date. not that i'm soliciting... friendship... on the internet... i've been listening to the preview of her album, the family jewels, off of KCRW's site for a month now, and i'm loving it. i did see a live tv performance (i want to say it was for some british program, but my memory is fuzzy) which made me a little worried b/c the sound was a bit weird/subpar, but i hope the live show IRL is going to be good.
