Well, the past two weeks provided me with some pretty awesome shows. I haven't been seeing as much live music as I would like to on a regular basis and I definitely was able to satisfy my appetite with these recent performances. It all started the weekend after Thanksgiving, checking out a jazz guitar duo in Del Mar, CA to warm me up for BB King at the Belly Up in Solana Beach. What a great show that was. BB and his band were able to give a stellar performance, complete with Lucille singing her blues in true form. He had a fantastic band behind him, complete with horns, guitars, drums, keys, the whole bit. Epic.
Then, this past Saturday evening, I headed down towards San Diego to see the 91X Wrex the Halls Night 1 show. Lineup was solid. Naked and Famous, Airborne Toxic Event, Cage the Elephant, Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, Death Cab for Cutie, and Florence and the Machine. It was a long night of music, but being up front on the floor was a great experience. All of the bands were pretty solid with the highlights being Death Cab and Florence for me. Awesome weeks of live music! Thanks to Kei for some of the pictures from the show! Hope to be playing live myself in the coming weeks after Christmas.
Pursuing passions and appreciating the joys and blessings of life. I have been given so much, I'd like to use music as an avenue to give back.
