I walked away from the best thing I ever had
Since I was sick earlier in the week, I almost didn't make it to this show. I had to go to work on Thursday even if I wasn't feeling my best. And couldn't really concentrate, just tried to focus on working and catching up with emails. We're really busy, so I ended up staying at work til 6:30. Seriously, for a minute there I decided not to go see Amazing Baby. Then I got home and thought to myself, are you joking? I mean, it's the Hammer Museum. It's freaking Amazing Baby. So I went and I am so glad I did. I saw all three bands. Dazzler opened and Band of Skulls also played. See separate post below. LA weather right now is below normal, that meant I had to wear a sweater. Still anxiously waiting for those real summer nights. Anyways, I just never got a chance to check out Amazing Baby before this show. Of course, I wanted to. I had a great front spot, right in front of Simon. Which is the most perfect spot to see them and hear them live. The fogger machine was intense. Sometimes, I couldn't see in front of me. But it was great. Listening to "Headdress" live sent chills down my spine. It was epic. Really, exciting, good stuff. Loved it. Note, look at their drumset color and the clear translucent guitar. And have you SEEN the music video? Omg. Please check out Amazing Baby.
