Holy Crap! The Foo Fighters Will Play Irving Plaza Friday 12/5/14

Wow talk about a special event, and here I thought that our musical week in the Big Apple was going to be your standard fare but I was wrong and there is no need to wipe your eyes because the Foo Fighters are indeed playing Irving Plaza this Friday, December 5th. I copied the details from their Facebook Page and present them to you below the poster. Dig in.

This is probably one of the coolest things to find happening at Irving Plaza in a very long time and I am speaking as a regular patron and media supporter of the venue. Its not every day one sees a band that has garnered so much praise play such an intimate setting. The space only holds about 1200 people and I might be over the actual amount by a dozen or so but that being said, imagine how much this building is going to Rock come Friday night as the Foo Fighters bring their “Sonic Highways” program to life for its NYC episode. I’ve been recording the program on my DVR but have not yet seen it and many of my friends are raving about it so its in my plan. As you can see they are being very strict with the rules and I love that they are limiting tickets to prevent scalpers from making a killing as opposed to rightful fans being in place. Since they are expecting a madhouse I feel its smart to not even let the line begin until its almost doors as that keeps the area not looking like a political rally. I am not sure that I will be able to get in place and secure a ticket for myself but if I can manage I will pen something up for you all here and hopefully snag some images from the crowd. This will surely be $20 well spent. Who else is psyched for this and is planning on calling in sick to their job that day?

Congratulations To The Foo Fighters For Winning The Grammy Award For Rock “Everything”

And I know that you think I am being obnoxious by making such a statement and alright, perhaps I am being just “a little bit” cheeky in this but let’s face it – the Foo Fighters pretty much won the Rock “Everything” at the Grammy Awards just a little while ago.

Them Crooked Vultures @ Roseland Ballroom (2/8/2010)

Logo - Them Crooked Vultures

Artist: Them Crooked Vultures
Venue: Roseland Ballroom (New York, NY)
Opener: The Brought Low
Date: 2/8/2010
Label: Interscope Records

You’ve most likely heard about the super group that’s been assembled by Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters recently, and if you are still unaware of what I am referring to then let me get you up to speed. According to research the little project actually had its first mention in an interview with Grohl back in 2005 but would not come to fruition until 2009. I guess it was okay to wait for this because the band places his drumming talents alongside guitarist/singer Josh Homme from the Queens Of The Stone Age and on bass none other than John Paul Jones who played with that little outfit we call Led Zeppelin. Musically this is an enterprise that has a lot of potential and while the band performed in NYC once before back in November, I was unable to attend that show and instead would be seeing it for the first time myself this evening. That show sold out and oddly enough there was no album to sell to the fans and yet they all came in droves. That was pretty cool to learn about and since that time the guys have released their debut and self-titled album so I anticipated this evening’s show selling out as well. Here is how the night went down for those who didn’t join in on the fun.
