this weekend was awesome in so many ways, drawbacks but ... you know. here's the list.
fresno was aight. i always enjoy road trips with homies. throwin' down for kids who don't know what the fuck a breakdown is or what we're doing was fun. all in all, those kids didn't know shit about promotion, so better luck to them next time.
after that, me and steph drove back to bakersfield, played with her friend tori for a bit then got a hotel for the night before our big day in LA with Coheed.
Coheed Day; pretty smooth ride, but the Grapevine is a bitch to drive through. the Focus made it pretty good tho. got there around like 1pm or so, at the front portion of the line. the whole time all these n00bz were looking at steph "murel" she painted for the band. she and her homie sought out Coheed and found them around the building. i must admit i was kinda pissed cause i wanted to hang with them too. anyways, she gave them her painting, they loved it, and then we stole some food from a ralph's nearby.
afterwards, the show started and it was a mixed kinda feeling. mewithoutyou was ... well, mewithoutyou. dredg, i can say with all confidence that they can directly suck the hugest dick in the world. the fucks. blood brothers came out and did there thing. only a few songs off piano island and march on electric children, mostly crimes stuff.
and then after the brothers left the stage, all was silent ... a quiet calm. after a few minutes of roading setting shit up ... the curtain rose and the most awesome stage setup was there. creepy, dull and bloody windows with Claudio(the character in the novel, not the lead singer) a chick i believe was the A chick, i never remember her name, and some death dude. the winged gilleoute(sp) was there too. fucking metal to the max.
Coheed put on one of the best performances i've seen out of the five. they played a lot of the new album ... but i kept yelling to claudio to "keep it real" (cause i was like 2ft away from him). so they busted out some devil in jersey city, delirium trigger and my personal favorite, everything evil. they ended their set with "the willing well vi: the final cut", and during one of the lyric lines, steph straight screams the part and claudio kinda giggled. end scene.
5 out of 5 stars.
recording tomorrow. work in an hour.
