I have the date for this somewhere, but I can’t locate it at the moment. This is the summer of 2003, that much I am certain.
This is a fine performance by the Denver van-rock trio Friends Forever. By “van-rock” I mean that usually they play with the drummer inside of their VW bus, with lights and fog machine blaring. It’s a great time. Anyway, this is one of their rare non-van shows, where the venue refused to allow them to use the van as part of the rock show. Kind of a bummer, but still a great show nonetheless.
Prior to their performance, I captured part of Wrangler Brutes and Soddamn Inssein live sets. They were fantastic as well. It was all really surreal because these really loud, progressive, dirty fucking rock bands were playing in front of the most posh and lavish theater in Hollywood. Really weird, but great. Kevin Nealon was there and he seemed amused. It’s all captured on a minidisc recorder that I had borrowed for the day.
You’ll hear the entire 10 minute Friends Forever set and then about 10 minutes of me interviewing the crowd and then the band about their performance. It’s really classy.
I took the pictures too. Yay for me.
