To those in the Fire areas, be safe out there this week. This includes you Birdman and the rest of the Merc.
If Reena is any danger you best sacrifice your body so she can float down the street on it. =oP

2009 is already ramping up to be a HUGE year in the rock music scene
In case you haven't heard by now, NO Doubt has reunited and WILL be touring in 2009. Their website confirms this with a chat session between band members on their home page.
Jane's Addiction has also reunited with their original line up. They have been playing small gigs throughout Los Angeles and rumors are that they will be headlining one night at Coachella. 6767.com is Dave Navarro's blog and he updates everyone on their gigs.
Another reunion that has rumored to take place and are set to tour in 2009 is none other than Led Zeppelin. Zeppelin reunited this past summer to play a gig in London which totally kicked ass.
Another group planning on reuniting before Coachella is The Smiths...Not a big Morrissey fan even though I'm hispanic...Sorry...

Its that time of year again for predictions to the KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas happening December 13th and 14th.
The following was posted on a site but taken down really fast which leads me to believe that this is the real deal.
Night 1 (Saturday): Nine Inch Nails, The Offspring, AFI, Weezer, Rise Against, Three Days Grace, Finger Eleven
Night 2 (Sunday): Metallica, The Killers, Death Cab for Cutie, Slightly Stoopid, Cold War Kids, The All-American Rejects, Jack's Mannequin, Shiny Toy Guns
I can almost confirm NIN for one of the dates as they are playing Las Vegas on December 12th.
Lars from Metallica mentioned somewhere that they were playing night two.
Nicole Alvarez from KROQ started talking about the concert and was saying I REALLY hope these guys are playing acoustic christmas and Offspring was mentioned.
New albums from the Killers, AFI, and no appearance by Weezer at Weenie Roast moves towards them playing KAAC this year.
The line up will be announced soon...keep tuned in

I just found out today that a DJ i used to look up to and was inspired by passed away. Jeff Besler aka DJ Tron from Chicago passed away doing what he loved best, in his studio preparing for a DJ set here in Los Angeles...He was 34.
I got into the underground Rave scene back in 1996. Tron (Torturous Rage of Noise) was one of the first DJ's I heard of. Known for his harder, darker, and extremely fast genre of Techno music, he was a huge inspiration for me to begin mixing what is known as Hardcore / Gabber underground music.
One of my best memories of him was a Rave in 1999 called Oracle. This rave was held in 3 different buildings in downtown Pomona with the Hardcore Techno room being held at Yesteryears night club. Tron was spinning an insane set. Picture the room about 100 x 100 feet. Two of the four walls had speakers from the ground to the ceiling with the dj booth in the middle. The crowd was the most insane I had ever seen. Speedcore at its finest with Tron going back to back with Delta 9, another famous Hardcore Techno dj. This was the first time that they had played together that I could remember. It was a fun night that ended with some bruised legs and ringing ears. Thanks Tron for the memories and inspiration. You will not be forgotten!
