What a busy day! As always, I started the morning with a clear plan for the day which was immediately destroyed. Thankfully my first planned event was not something for which I had to wake up at 8am. (I’m looking at you Nick Cave!)

This post will include photos of Amanda Palmer, Jared Leto, Jim James, Nerdist, Nick Cave, Heartless Bastards, Black Angels, Young Galaxy, and Hurray For the Riff Raff.

I began my morning with Amanda Palmer, who I was not stalking today, and her awesome panel made up of people from Girlie Action, some of the nicest PR people I’ve ever dealt with, Kickstarter, and others who were involved with her madly successful campaign for producing and releasing her last album.


Amanda ended her talk with a ukulele song, as you do.

Jared Leto of 30 Seconds to Mars and Fight Club.

Jared Leto takes a picture of the crowd before his interview.

Jim James of My Morning Jacket.

Live recorded Nerdist Podcast recording, with one of the heads of Machinima, and two other guys who I forget.
If not for checking Twitter an hour before I wouldn’t have known this event was happening.

Yeah, Chris Hardwick!

After this I decided to test my luck and see if I could get into the Nick Cave show at Stubb’s even though I didn’t win the ticket raffle.

And I did!

Cave with Warren Ellis.

The rest of the evening I hopped around to fit in a few bands that I hadn’t seen before.

Black Angels at Buffalo Billiards. David Fricke of Rolling Stone was hanging out at this show.

Black Angels

Heartless Bastards at the Stages on 6th

Young Galaxy at the Montreal showcase at Swan Dive. (Check these guys out!)

I ended the night with an old favorite, Hurray for the Riff Raff, at 512.




Today I’ve already slept through the big Dave Grohl keynote talk. Ah well, yay sleep. Here are some things I’m looking forward to today:

Lone Bellow (great band I discovered yesterday) is playing at Antone’s at 3:40 and again at the Entertainment Weeklky Showcase at 6:30 at 612 E 6th

Stevie Nicks interview at 5pm in 18ABCD

Athens, Ohio band The Ridges at 7pm at Ja Blacks

Pyyramids (Tim Nordwind from OK Go) is playing at 8pm at the Whiskey Room

Small Black, Bleached, Foxygen Phosporescent, and Unknown Mortal Orchestra all begin at 8pm at Red 7

Von Grey is playing at 8pm on the Maggie Mae’s Rooftop along with Diego Garcia from Elefant at 10pm

Sinkane is playing at 10pm and !!! at midnight at the Clive Bar

Also The Presets at Belmont and Divine Fits at the Lustre Pearl

Have fun today!
