The Do Lab’s shows at King King are becoming my monthly trek to Hollywood. Oh I find myself in Hollyweird far more often than that, the neighborhood being somewhat of a necessary evil when you live in Los Angeles. However I try to avoid shows in Hollyhood as much as possible. In general the drinks are expensive, the people are stupid, the sidewalk smells like urine and the parking situation is almost as bad as “The Situation.”

Lightning in a Bottle 2010 Final Lineup

Posted in Events, Festivals, Note to Readers with tags , on May 3, 2010 by worldromper

Whoa….this is just ridiculous:

Please don’t be like my friends that didn’t go to Symbiosis and are now forever forlorn over missing such a profound event and practically cry any time that weekend is brought up. People are coming from Seattle and Miami and probably even farther for Lightning in a Bottle; buy your presales and join us on the earthen dance floor Memorial Day weekend.
