Foo Fighters= Incroyable! Fabuleux !

Foo Fighters - The Pretender (Video Premiere)

So, I went with Juan, K, B and Quiz Boy Cranium™ to see the Foo Fighters at Key Arena last night and had some yummy Thai food at Racha Thai before we all strolled over to the Arena to see the show. SuperGrass (the second warm-up band) was pretty good (I'll have to check them out more throughly on Rhapsody soon). They had funky grooves and good energy coupled with pretty lights on their logo (O.B.=sucker for pretty pretty *grins*).

Then comes the main event, the Foo Fighters. They rocked for 2 hours and 40 minutes and shredded the entire time. Dave Grohl was funny, swore constantly, teased the crowd, told hilarious stories and banged his head like he was still a man of four and twenty. K and I were amazed he could headbang, run up and down the ramp leading to both stages, give a stellar performance on guitar and STILL sing without wheezing. They officially go on my list of top 10 live performances in the history of me. The whole band was amazing but take note, the drummer Taylor Hawkins was intensely and supremely talented and well worth watching.

If they come around again, and you don't despise the sound of their approaching footsteps...check it! OB has spoken!! :)

I'm so tired from the show, but it was so, so worth it.

Dave Grohl, whose rock god powers were likely bestowed to him by Satan himself, was already one of my rock heroes. But last night he moved into a smaller, more exclusive pantheon just based on his live performance. It was simply an amazing display.

And make no mistake: Dave Grohl is a f***ing awesome drummer, so when you have a guy like Taylor Hawkins in your band, that's saying something. He's easily one of the best drummers in the world.

F***ing kick ass show. Long live the Foo.
