I got a coveted pair of tickets to a show at the House of Blues that sold out in 5 minutes...
Them Crooked Vultures
Imagine, The Foo Fighters, Queens of the Stoneage, and Led Zeppelin mixed in a blender, add vodka and serve over ice! That's Them Crooked Vultures!
Hsu and I met at the Lansdowne Pub for some food and drinks, and we got stuck watching the Patriots lose on the big screen... all this after a the Red Sox get swept in the playoffs... It was not a good day for Hsu! After a 'few' drinks and some laughs at the drunk girls next to us, we headed to the show. I thought Hsu would have brought his little Flip camera... he didn't. i would have shoved it down my pants for him... He was sad when I told him that!
We had Box Tickets... NICE! Front row of the balcony, unobstructed view of the stage, squishy seats and a WAITRESS!!! I ordered some PBR and the lights went out...
There they were... 4 'cool mutha f*ckers', taking the stage. I've never been to a show, where I had NEVER heard 1 song from the band before... But TCV haven't released any music yet, since they just signed their record deal with Interscope last week.
The lights were really cool. Imagine a 25 square Rubiks cube, filled with white lights, and every light is controlled individually... I think the lighting guy was high!!! Hsu and I couldn't help but notice a few things... How many cool guitars they have, how much Dave Grohl plays the drums like Animal from Dr. Teeth & the Electric Mayhem Orchestra (his roadie even sits behind him and moves his mic stand back and forth so he can sing) , and how cool John Paul Jones is...
The band was having a blast, talking in between songs, trying to figure out what to play next... It was cool to see a show that wasn't scripted out from start to finish. It was obvious to everyone, that they were having a ball!
This band is made for playing live... A singer that plays guitar (Josh Homme), a bass player that plays guitar, mandolin, keyboards and sings (JPJ), a drummer that sings, and plays guitar, bass and whatever else he feels like (Dave Grohl), and a guitar player that sings, plays bass and keyboards (Alain Johannes). I was waiting for them to ring a bell, and all switch places!
Dave Grohl needed a row of sandbags to keep his drumset in place... It looked like he was waiting for the Merrimac River to crest! His kit was teal blue, like an old Chevy... And JPJ was playing some instruments that Hsu and I have never seen... It was so cool! And still, I didn't know ONE song! The crowd didn't seem to mind that though... They loved every minute of it! I don't remember all of the song titles, but a couple of my favorite songs of the night were... Mind Eraser No Chaser, and Scumbag Blues.
At the end, they waved to the crowd and walked off stage to Roy Orbison's 'It's Over'... No encore. No medley of Nirvana, Led Zeppelin & QOTS... Just a crowd, left stunned... Trying to comprehend what they had just seen.
Hsu and I managed to weasel ourselves in the very private Foundation Room after the show. After we ordered a round of drinks, Dave Grohl and JPJ walked in! It was crazy... Everyone gravitated to Grohl... He's tall and just 'looks' like a rockstar... But JPJ blended in to the crowd... he walked in, got a drink and just started hanging out with everyone... he's JOHN PAUL JONES FROM LED ZEPPELIN... he doesn't have to hang out with ANYONE!!!!
One by one our group went over to him, saying 'Thank you' etc to a Rock n Roll legand... I offered to buy him a drink, but he politely declined, in his very Spinal Tap British accent... All I could think is... "DUDE, YOU WERE IN LED ZEPPELLIN"... I'm pretty sure he is aware of that fact!
It was a great night, and I can't wait for them to come back into Boston. maybe JPJ will let me buy him that drink! :)
I too was at show Sunday night. Not in a box with a waitress but on the floor where the vibrations from Dave Grohl's drums was felt from your soles to the hairs that stood on top your head. I think my heart even stopped with the first thud of the base. My ears are still ringing! You are so right Carrie...I didn't know one song and there wasn't one song I didn't like. I cannot wait until the CD is released.
Being a new drummer I was mesmerized by Dave's energy. He never stopped moving once! His double bass pedal footing (he's using both feet)left me speechless! I just wish I were closer to see the little nuances (I could see his mic moving but not the person moving it.) On the way home even I said to my friends that Dave resembles Animal!
This Super Group makes Chicken Foot super lame! I hope Them Crooked Vultures are around for a long, long time!
I got to see Them Crooked Vultures at the Austin City Limits Music festival a week or so ago. Man, was I totally blown away. Just being able to see John Paul Jones on stage... never saw Zepplin live :( Friends that couldn't be there were asking me how the show was and all I could say was... mind blowing!
I am very much looking forward to the cd, but I have to say, nothing will compare to seeing them live on a beautiful Friday night in Austin Tx!
Shauna- liked the comment about Chickenfoot!- saw them the week before, great show, but these guys took it up 100 notches!
OMG,,,didn't see you Carrie and Hsu,,,would have loved to talked to someone
about the music after the show. I'm sooo jelous you guys hung out with them. I loved every second of the show. Each member brings something so
COOL to the stage...I just lovemusicians...especially Dave ...I would like
to **** him....Then again, they all turned me on that night...xxoo

Every body remembers that our life is not cheap, but some people require money for various stuff and not every one earns enough money. Thus to get quick business loans or justcommercial loan will be a proper solution.
