I had a pretty amazing summer. In addition to going to Europe for 3 weeks, I went to quite a few cool concerts.
7/3: Nico Vega @ the Hammer
7/12: The Who, Flaming Lips, Pearl Jam, Foo Fighters, Incubus, Tenacious D @ UCLA
7/21: Jesse Lacey (of Brand New) and Kevin Devine @ The Roxy
8/20: Person L (ex-TSL) and Anthony Green (Circa Survive, TSOAF, ex-Saosin)@ Troubadour
8/27: Kay Kay and the Weathered Underground & RX Bandits & Portugal, The Man @ Troubadour
9/3: Colour Revolt, Night Marchers @ the Echo
9/12: Jenny Lewis (of Rilo Kiley) @ the Echo
Names in bold are bands that I talked to after the show. Everyone was down to earth and really cool, but I especially liked talking to Kenny of Person L who used to be the lead singer of the Starting Line, as well as the guys from Kay Kay (formerly in Gatsby's American Dream).
Here's a little mixtape for your listening pleasure of bands I saw over this summer:
