Visual Extasy

I got a chance to meet and see Crocodiles last time they can to town. There live show is awesome, lights, feedback(but not the annoying kind) and kind of roller coaster ride of buildups and break downs. After the show they didn't hesitate twice to come to a party with us and although they werent ragers, the boys were fun talk to and had a lot to say! I have a feeling the show at Chop Suey will sellout. I usually hate crowds but I will be there for Crocodiles, dancing in the frontrow!

BUSY EVEING!

What is there not to do tonight!!! So many shows and so little time! I am going to stay on the hill and pop in to these fine events tonight.

500 Pine Party- Invite only I guess.. but I was out on the street tues. night and got handed a ticket- also facebook invites get you on the list. I am not sure how this will go- sounds like too many people for me!

Thee Makeout Party- are from Anaheim Ca. serving up full helpings of sweet powerpop! Wear your dance shoes, because all the bands will have you tearing it up!
Yirim Seck- Pearl Dragon of Champagne Champagne started up with the man on a project called Pyrate Radio. They eventully split ways and Yirim is now about to get his! Rumor has it Pearl might jump on stage with his old pal- should be good!

As if you haven't gotten enough of this, here are some pictures of last nights game.

Beard Off Results...

The winner is------Sir Thomas Grey! Which is lucky for him because we still have more filming to do for MTV's $5 Cover and they might notice if the beard is missing! Greg was a great sport and took the clippers like a champ! Thanks to J.R. of Winners Circle, there are commemorative shirt with the flier on it... Pretty awesome. Here's a glimpse of some of the action.... the beard action that is!

Wowza what a weekend!

DEAD BABY PARTY- When we first arrived, I automatically wanted to leave. Leaving the hill is rare, so I gave it a chance and glad I did! I saw They Live!, Bike Jousting, TAD, and so many other crazy performaces! The beer was free and really good. I kept hearing "this is the party of the summer"- its definatley in my top 5!


KEXP BBQ- I felt quite strange that there was BBQ in the title, yet nobody was BBQing anything?!
Champagne Champagne did what they always do, rocked it! They played a variety of new songs such as "fell through" and featured Thee Satisfaction on "Magnetic Blackness". There were a mixed crowd of younger kids to parents with babies, who were all dancing at 2:30 in Seattle Center. The other bands in between were all good, and built up to the Final act, Dinosaur Jr. There were people as far as the eye could see. Truly an amazing set. Lou even came and chilled with us afterward, which topped off the night.
