Last week Zack and I went to go see JD McPherson at the Troubadour in west Hollywood. We have loved JD since the Starkweather Boys, so we try to see him whenever he comes to CA.
Some of my girlfriends met us there- Deen, Sandra and Sally Jo! I wore my "new to me" french sweater jacket and blue velvet pants from Fab Gabs.
The opening band was Broncho, a sort of indie rock band. Maybe they are trying to appeal to a larger audience. They weren't my style, but it wasn't long before we got to see JD, Jimmy and the rest of the band.
They did a really long set will all of their new hits. They even reworked Abigail Blue for this band and played their new holiday song Twinkle (Little Christmas Light). I highly recommend you check them out or download them on itunes!
After the show I bought the Abigail Blue 45 and a HiStyle Records shirt.
I had the band sign my record and
JD posed with me for a photo!
The night was not all fun and games though, as we found out our car was towed while we were busy rockin' out! Apparently the residential area we parked in was permit only and we didn't know because the sign was about 10 feet high and covered by a tree. Then we got the wrong address online and took a cab to the wrong place and had to walk abut a mile in circles looking for the right place. We finally found it, had to pay for the towing and fees, two days of storage (because it was before and after 12am) and a parking fee. After everything this night cost well over $300. And we didn't get home 'till about 3am on a work night. Ehhh. That's rock and roll baby!
