Iggy & The Stooges Recap

This show was pretty much everything that I had hoped for from my first live experience with Iggy & the Stooges. Iggy's voice took a bit to warm up, but once it did, he sounded great; and he was bouncing around all over the place right from the get go.

James Williamson played well as did Scott Asheton and Mike Watt (who seemed to have hurt his leg with a splint of some sort limiting his mobility).

Steve McKay added some great flourishes on the sax and some other instrumentation.

The set list was brilliant, though I wish they would have played "Cock In My Pocket" and "Kill City" (which was on the set list to be played but was not.

It really was a fun night.

Here's the set list:

Raw Power
Search And Destroy
Gimme Danger
Your Pretty Face Is Going To Hell
Shake Appeal
L.A Blues
Night Theme
Beyond The Law
I Got a Right
I Wanna Be Your Dog
I Need Somebody
Death Trip
Open Up And Bleed
No Fun

Star Wars... finally getting the Blu Ray treatment. Unfortunately, Lucas is still not admitting that Han Shot first. To top it off it's coming in a giant box set with the not just the atrocious "Special Edition" versions of the original trilogy but also the turd that is the prequel trilogy.

This is for people who both hate and love the prequel trilogy

Has It Really Been So Long?

Thirteen years since the last album from Three Mile Pilot seems like a long time, and well, it is. The Planets / Grey Clouds 7" single from last year was quite the teaser. Hopefully, this was just a taste of how good the new album will be.

Temporary Residence starts pre-orders today. So, go grab one while you can.

In the meantime, enjoy this:
