A Brief Interlude....

from Tech football & football in general. Frank & I were talking just the other day how if we thought there was something worth posting non-football related we should go ahead & do so. I have just such a thing. Since we are a Tech blog I'll go with an equation:

Dave Grohl(Nirvana/Foo Fighters) + Josh Homme(Queens of the Stone Age/Eagles of Death Metal) + John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin) = Them Crooked Vultures = one AMAZING live show.

The Mayor & I trekked down to the Tabernacle last night & caught the show & were frankly just blown away. It's rock-n-roll people, the way it was meant to be: loud (my ears are still ringing this morning), unadorned, & raw. No fancy light show or stage tricks, no power ballads or political messages, just hard-driving, in-your-face rock music. John Paul Jones is, well, John Paul Jones, Dave Grohl pounds his drumset into submission & Josh Homme is the Ginger Elvis (NOT to be confused with the Ginger Ninja). If you want a great live show, check them out as they continue their North American tour. And the album is not bad, either. Now back to our regularly scheduled programming.....

  1. I guess I've been away from the music scene for the most part, and while I've heard of Them Crooked Vultures, I had no idea who they were. That *does* sound like a great combo - I'm sorry I missed it.

    Dang, it's cold.
