I attended my first show of 2014 last Wednesday, and let me tell you, I Had An Incredible Most excellent show going experience.
On Tuesday an unidentified number texted me asking if I wanted to go see HAIM, or if I knew anyone who would want to see them; I love HAIM but I was cautious to immediately sign myself up for a mystery date. Especially as I could potentially catch HAIM at another point in time, although they don’t have any shows scheduled in SO CAL except for Coachella. Which I don’t have tickets to attend. So when the person identified themselves as my cousin, I was fully onboard till I was told it was at 1pm. The responsible adult/employee in me was hesitant to skip out on work so early, but as the show was only 15 minutes from my job. I decided on an Executive Life decision, and there was no way I was missing this great FREE show. Plus if my work really needed me I could always return after.
I enjoy posting “Song of the Day” or listening to a song and thinking this needs to be shared as SOTD, but my consistency with song(s) of the day is shameless. You would think for me a day lasted eight hundred and forty hours, give or take. Also I have this amazing ability to paste the same “amazing” song more than once over the course of a year. My solution to this debilitating SOTD problem (see a doctor if it begins to burn or itch); an excel doc! Wow I really am growing up; a part of me is so proud. I am going to be logging the songs I want to post, along with marking the day once its posted. The songs are going to be posted on Facebook and Twitter. But at the end of the month the entire list of songs I shared I will post here, for someone’s playlist making enjoyment.
This blog is my child, neglected in the past, but let’s say I went to blogger rehab, and I am determined to be a better mother; making amends. Earning its following and respect back through lots of small steps to rebuilding the trust we once had. And Blogger Social Services, will once again see me as a valued member of the blogging community.

See this amazing band at Silverlake Lounge Tonight!!!
And be So Many Wizards friend
*UPDATE 12/2/12- Three years later I am still a huge fan of So Many Wizards and now all of its talented members. When I first saw Nima play the Silverlake Lounge, the same night this post was originally published. It was him on stage with programmed television sets that played disjointed scenes from old movies. With his friend assisting on guitar or pull string toy for a few tunes. So Many Wizards was Nima’s inspired music invention which has grown from televised band mates to live flesh rocking out on stage. I’ve loved watching the band grow and evolve into one of LA’s favorite local bands. From rowdy mosh pits in Pasadena to packed shows during their Echo residency, SMW has garnered an international fan base, thousands of followers, and rave write ups online and on the gloss (glossy paper that is- printed press). Well deserved, hard earned, and a pleasure to all who has enjoyed their music. p.s. Did I forget to mention Lou Reed has called him up regarding the song Nico, I don’t know the details but apparently it was played on a radio show. Although I do think I heard this story for the first time when we were chatting at Spaceland, and yes it was still called Spaceland then….or I think it was.
