Tonight I saw Thenewno2 play at Amoeba, and got to meet the band! They were promoting the release of their album You Are Here, so of course I bought one. I shook Dhani Harrison’s hand and he signed my CD for me and it was awesome. The performance was cool; there were some technical difficulties (don’t you hate when that happens??) but Dhani kept us entertained by doing a little dance while microphones and cables were being changed.
My favorite songs from the album are “Give You Love”, “Another John Doe”, and “Life Off”. I swear, Dhani’s voice sounds so much like George’s, I always get tripped out because I hear it and imagine George doing all this electronic stuff, haha. He also looks so much like his dad it’s UNREAL:
(The top pic was George, the other two were of Dhani from some photo shoot.)
In conclusion, I had a great night! I went with Jon, the bassist from RCC, who is just as much of a Beatlenerd as me. We also ate at Mel’s Drive-In in West Hollywood (note to self: awesome place to eat, come back in summer!).
Also, on a totally unrelated note, I have lately been quite fond of the following two songs: “Oxford Comma” by Vampire Weekend (it’s so catchy! go listen if you don’t mind a couple f-bombs) and “White Winter Hymnal” by Fleet Foxes (reeeeaaally pretty).
edit: Also, “Cigarettes and Chocolate Milk” by Rufus Wainwright. Check em out!
