My night out

I’ve been grading too many papers, deciphering and producing too many words.

So, just a few more… Saturday night. Sushi with Nikki. Then, Silversun Pickups opening for The Elected at the El Rey. Then, Silversun Pickups blowing The Elected out of the water at the El Rey. (I might be a little biased.) Finally, drinking backstage with Nikki and Brian and Tracy and Christopher and Sammy and Joe and everyone else. Oh, I almost forgot… before all that, art galleries at Bergamot Station in Santa Monica, including a funny faux 17th- or 18th- or 19th-century portrait (see below).

Fun, fun.

And a welcome respite.

Enough words.

    Mmm, sushi.

    Alas, I’m sad I missed the El Rey show. Seems like it was a good time.

    As for the portrait, I’d go with faux 18th c.

    Give me a call when you’ve finished up the grading.

    Wow. it must’ve been a great show, because I loved The Elected when they opened for Azure Ray (was it already?) two years ago.

    I gotta move back to a city where I can go to shows.

  7. no — i don’t know BV, but i check it periodically since it’s a pretty exhaustive source for live shows in the city, including photos of shows i miss but would have liked to have seen. my brother and i have played the game “which one’s brooklyn vegan” at a couple shows though: you check out all the kids in front of the stage with cameras in hand and try to guess which one you think is BV.

  8. […] Recently, a friend, who shall remain unnamed, told me he had watched it and liked it and also realized he had played basketball on the very court where the guys shoot hoops in one episode. He asked what I thought of it and what it was like for me to see so much of my neighborhood featured in a show like that. Of course, having no idea it had started airing, I had nothing to say. So after hanging up, I headed straight to iTunes, ponied up $11.96, and downloaded Season One, the first seven episodes of “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.” First off, watching shows on a desktop computer is a drag. Besides that, I have to say I liked the show. For those who don’t already know the premise, it’s about three 28-year-old kids, life-long friends, who own a bar called Paddy’s in Philly. One of the friends has a younger sister who works as the bartender. The four of them get into all kinds of zany trouble. Yes, zany trouble. That’s usually a bad thing for a sitcom. What redeems this one is that their troubles are pretty uncharted in the sitcom pantheon. […]
