Weekend Update

I did end up catching Vedera last Friday night as I mentioned. I can't really tell you too much about the show since a little bit of "drama" kept me from fully enjoying the concert. What was the drama? Two hot women fighting over who would be taking me home? Not quite.

Apparently, some drunken meatheads walked up to one of the guys in an opening band and just punched him in the face. For no reason. I helped the owners of the Waiting Room chase the guys out of the bar, and watched as they ran down the street and into a different bar. Long story short, the cops were called. As the fuzz was looking for these hooligans, one of them came back inside Waiting Room, licked some girl on the face, and tried to be inconspicuous. Naturally, he was spotted and chased out again. This time, the cops were outside. He tried to make a getaway, and got tazered for his trouble. I actually missed the takedown, and I'm sorry that I did. I've never seen one of those tazer things in action before.

After the drama had subsided, Vedera was just about wrapping up their set. I caught the tail end of the show. Unfortunately, I didn't see enough to form an opinion. I will say that Vedera's singer is a lot cuter than her picture, but that's about all I can say. Maybe next time.

Like I also mentioned last week, I re-watched Species so I could see Natasha Henstridge in her glory days. She looked amazing -- perhaps the most attractive woman in Hollywood. I had forgotten that CSI's Marg Helgenberger was also in the movie. However, unlike most Hollywood stars, Helgenberger is actually more attractive now than she was 12 years ago. The movie was pretty much how I remembered it -- a decent, kinda cheezy, sci-fi movie with T&A. But, hey, Ben Kingsley is in it, so there must be some "artistic merit" to the film, right?

I was kind of a hermit for the rest of the weekend. I just wasn't in the partying mood on Saturday night despite being invited to a rather large shindig downtown. Good thing, too, because with the massive amount of rain that came down Saturday night, I was getting water in my basement. I had to pull out the ol' water vac and take care of business at 11 o'clock at night!

My show last night was great -- lots of phone activity. I gave away my final pair of Morrissey tickets, and premiered both the new Interpol song, "The Heinrich Maneuver" and the new song from M.I.A. called "Hit That." Plus, the new Björk CD was sitting in my box when I got there! Yeah!! This is shaping up to be a pretty great spring season with new music from Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Bright Eyes, Low, LCD Soundsystem, Patti Smith, and now Björk.

Yeah, I think I might pick up the Black Rebel Motorcycle Club cd tomorrow.
