Last night I went to the Kimmel show for the second time. The last show I saw was on their cockfueled adventures of Eagles of Death Metal. This time MSTRKRFT was slated to perform along with rumbles & rumors of other people. It turned out Noreaga & Isis accompanied them onstage…the latter whom I hadn’t seen since she was slated to perform at my SXSW party in 2007 in Thunderheist. I kept my cameraphone closed once we hit the green room cause the signs politely told you not to but I promise you the imaginary photos of the banana samosas & sweet potato fries looked ravishing. I got a few afterwards…don’t you love my photo skillz?
The green room is alway an adventure of exhaustion mixed with ego & pure indifference. Okay I don’t really mean that the Green Room is a land of aplenty! But honestly this Green Room was fun I think Kimmel is just smart as fuck or someone working for him his. The catering was good, the place was laid out right and they had pinball machines…okay they weren’t plugged in but WHATEVER! They were there. Overall it was relaxing…the bartender was very nice & wanted me to drink. Wait…maybe that’s his job.
Either way once we got carted out to see the band we heard a quick soundcheck and it was refreshing to hear sounds over friggen million dollar soundsystem (I’m totally ballparking that number). I’ve gotten so used to shitty when I actually heard beats properly displayed I got PSYCHED. The video is below and you can see me slap the air around 2:47…and in the start (on the left) giving a double chaka brah*. XOXOXO!
*Yes it’s “Chaka Brah” instead of “Shaka Brah” because I believe in the Church of Chaka (I feel for you)
