went to a special nearly secret show of Jack White's band THE DEAD WEATHER. well, it features musicians from the Raconteurs, the Kills, and QotSA.

fabulous show at Music Hall in Williamsburg Brooklyn.
we (micah & i) got there, had a beer and hung out in the lounge until the opening act came on, a grunge outfit from Australia called Violent Soho with all the flannel trimmings. not bad, not very original either.

then we waited for The Dead Weather to come on...the roadies very neatly dressed with suit & tie and of course, those hip little retro hats i could never rock properly. they prepared the stage, and the band came on and played promptly at 10pm. Unlike in his White Stripes roll, Jack plays drums in this band. at first i'll admit i felt like i was kind of settling for seeing him as a drummer. i mean it isn't his main instrument right? well, even if he hadn't picked up the guitar for 2 songs (!!!...easily and arguably the best performer of his generation), i would have been very impressed and satisfied with the show sans his guitar. He's a very solid drummer. and just as good a performer behind the kit as he is when he's fronting.

This was a VERY memorable rock show. i'm lucky to have seen it.


king hell !!!!! dear good friends KING HELL played Santos House Party (club) on Monday for an industry showcase. it was a great show (as usual). they rocked. we rocked. and a great time was had by all.

in addition to this they forwarded me the image and critiques to one of the worst metal album covers of ALL TIME !!!! thank you Raven...without you, i wouldn't have laffed so hard today.

#2 - Raven: The Pack Is Back

Raven - The Pack Is Back album

A warning to all you former football jocks who got off on stuffing dweebs in lockers: They're all grown up, they're coming for you, and they're completely deranged. We've seen homeless nuts who look more coherent than Raven. The two on the left and right are so far gone they put their Fruit Of The Loom and banana hammock undies on over their tights. And center stage we have Space Admiral Barney. We're betting the pack were shortly back in a locked ward.

an amazing exhibition of Bauhaus masters at MOMA !!! wow, i won't give you the history lesson on it (go to wikipedia for that!) but the genius of the faculty and students from this important period of art history still dazzles!

movie questions

what does boston, judd nelson, italian mobsters, irish tuff guys, and EVAN EDER (my brother) have in common?
The Boondock Saints ll : All Saints Day !!!
yes, my kid brother has finally gotten himself into something there's no escape from. he successfully weaseled his way into this storied cult classic franchise by scoring 3 songs in this epic B movie !!!! and that music is gracing several scenes including the final all out shootout sequence.
so, see this !@%%**@#$^ fun movie.
kid bro evan, might actually make a penny from it someday.
we'll see!!!!
i liked it. reality suspended. music vid style not withstanding...a very good cast tho.
