Two Turntables and a Microphone

Thanks to my friend Veggie, we went to the Hollywood Bowl on Saturday to see Beck, Spoon, and MGMT.

Lovely seats!

Unfortunately, the four women behind us didn't read this sign.

Instead, they proceeded to talk non-stop very loudly about their children's love of Yo Gabba Gabba, one woman's sister's artificial insemination by a sperm donor from Denmark, and another woman's 36th birthday plans.

Please let me never be like this. Please.

Nearly all of my videos include their inane chatter. Gah.

MGMT "Time to Pretend"

MGMT "Kids"

I think the number of videos on my blog may be affecting some readers' browsers, so, if you want to see any of my Spoon videos, click here for the entire set. There are also more MGMT and Beck videos there.

Beck "Loser"

Beck "Devil's Haircut"

Beck "Timebomb"

Beck "Gamma Ray"

Beck "Think I'm in Love" with the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra Strings, conducted by David Campbell

Beck "Where It's At"

Beck "E-Pro"

Everybody was singing, "Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah," as we walked back to our car.


  1. Turning green with envy again. . .

  2. That sounds like such a fun night. Even though I didn't know who MGMT was before sometime last month when I was playing messenger between you and the hubs.

  3. I hate it when people are chatty when they really should just STFU.

  4. didn't get to the bowl this summer. sadness

  5. Gah! I hate talkers at the bowl. I seriously would have told them to shut up or to leave. I've done it before. And I can see that fricking cross in your picture... how annoying. But I'm glad you had a good time... It was a beautiful night for a concert.

  6. Someone else I know was at that concert too. Did you enjoy it or no? The other person had mixed reviews.

  7. i would have wanted to smack those ladies. ugh.

    hope you were able to enjoy the concert anyways.
