Your Yellow Dress Tour Day 6 March 26, 2010

Tucson to Los Angeles = Success. i woke up early to walk to sharps transmissions because i wanted to be there if the van was fixed. it was about an hour and a half walk, and when we got there they were taking it out for a test drive. we packed up the van and were on the road by 12:30. i would like to thank jake so much for letting us live in his hanger for three nights. thanks for making us fruit salad. thanks for letting us drink and see bands for free. thanks for laughing at my jokes and disco dancing with us.

the drive to l.a. took eight and a half hours. i pretty much went crazy on the drive but the show at pehrspace was amazing. rare grooves played first. they reminded me a lot of the minutemen, and when i went to talk to the guitar player after their set he said that they have a 7" coming out and mike watt plays bass on it, which is pretty fucking cool and kind of explains a lot. the dining dead reminded me a lot of the pixies. they were high school kids. the guitar player was wearing a bright eyes shirt and when someone offered him a drink of beer he said thanks but i'm only sixteen which made me laugh. i really like them and picked up a copy of their cd which sean from moses campbell put out on his label - no girls allowed. moses campbell celebrated the release of their cd 'who are you? who is anyone?' this was my first time seeing them and they were awesome. this was definitely a party. toilet paper was thrown everywhere, miles was crowd surfing, and everyone was singing and knocking over microphones. the drive home last night was pretty depressing and i'm sad it's over, but i had a lot of fun, made a lot of new friends, and i'm really happy i went.
