WOW!!! Last night at the Troubadour was an experience. It was my first time seeing J..(my bad for not seeing him sooner).. but someother items first.. To the folks working at the Troubador, air conditioning helps. It must have been 85 on the floor, and about 95 upstairs..
First Band: The Syrup Jeans (???) Just 2 guys with acoustic guitars. Pretty good.. Apparently, some at the club did not know they were on, so they did not rehearse. Ended with "Wake up Litlle Susie"..
In between: Went outside to smoke (have to love California). This dirty black subaru pulls up front. It is J driving in. Security pulls the cones away, and he parks against the curb. He walks in the front door. Very cool.
2nd Band: Supreme Dicks. Really cool stuff.. You could really tell who their influences were.. Pink Floyd, Sonic Youth, Velvet Underground. It was almost like Syd Barrett and Kim Gordon had a daughter, who then begat Lou Reed’s love child. Their distortion came across extremely well in the club. Very Impressive sound. Definitely adding then to my cd’s wish list…
J: I will not try to review the show here, as Rosa (see: a review, for you.) described it better than I. Same set as most of the other shows.. When he came out for his 2 song encore, he goes "Any requests?" Me and one other guy, behind me somewhere, yell FREAKSCENE, but to no avail <img> .. Ended with "The Wagon", picked up his pedals, and disappeared.. Very impressive performace…
To all Freakscener’s in San Diego.. Get to the Casbah tonight, you will NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!!! <img> <img> <img> Also, look for a small, dirty, black Subaru with Mass. plates…
It was my first concert in almost a decade, and it was well worth it.. Thanks J….
