St. Lucia @ The El Rey.
Wow! I've been hooked on St. Lucia for awhile now so I was definitely looking forward to seeing them live. My Pandora station has been on them for months now and I love how all the bands I love stream through. Oh, and the El Rey... one of my favorite venues in LA, others being the Hollywood Bowl and The Wiltern.
|I know I look ridiculous but it was delicious.|
Haven't heard of them? Don't be surprised. I wouldn't have either if TicketMaster didn't broadcast their calendar with "Brandon Boyd with Sons of the Sea." Anything with the mentioning of Brandon Boyd captures my attention immediately. Five minutes after seeing the email, tickets were purchased and a fellow Incubus loving friend became my accomplice. Eagerly waiting for the day to see Brandon Boyd on stage again, we counted the days down. Once we arrived at the venue, there was a line 3 blocks down to enter. No joke, doors opened at 8PM and we witnessed this lengthy line at around 8:15PM and had no choice but to join in.
Ohh, Brandon. We've missed you so. If you didn't know who you were seeing, you would have thought you were at an Incubus concert- just with new tunes that no one knows.
My concert bug has kicked in. Need to go to more shows! Sad I missed Band of Horses acoustic set this week, but there will be more chances and more shows soon enough. After deciding to pass on Coachella, I'm eagerly anticipating the Eager Beaver ticket sales and lineup announcement for Outside Lands in August at Golden Gate Park. For now, I can only wait patiently and scope out upcoming local shows. Till next time...
