Summer Time In The Promised Land!!!

Summer is here, which means the beach, BBQs, and good, classic music.
Typically, I try to post stuff that is (for the most part) more obscure.  But, in the case of a summer mix, you gotta stick with what you know.  But even still, I'm hoping there might be a couple surprises on here.  This mix pretty much makes me want to take a looooong break from work and go drive up the coast or into the desert with a cooler of cold beer in the passenger seat.  It's a windows down, turn it up loud, bang your hand on the roof of the car type thing.  Enjoy.

The Flaming Lips!!!!!!!

My wife & I had the INCREDIBLE PRIVILEGE of getting to see The Flaming Lips, not one, but two nights in a row at The Hollywood Forever Cemetery.

Night 1 was The Soft Bulletin in it's entirety and night 2, Pink Floyd's: Dark Side of the Moon.  Soft Bulletin is my favorite Lips album and Dark Side of the Moon is my favorite album of all time.  To say it was a special couple of nights just doesn't give it justice.  But, I'm still at too much of a loss of words to say anything else.

Alice took a handful of photos.  I'm gonna let her save the majority for her blog, but I couldn't resist posting a couple here.  Thank you to The Flaming Lips for the best two nights of my life.  Seriously.

FIDLAR - Videos

My brother-in-law is in a band called FIDLAR.  They kick ass.  I've had a great time doing some videos for them recently and thought I'd post them.

Here's one I did for their 1st single, "Max Can't Surf" off their 7", "DIYDUI."

And a couple from a live set on KXLU.

White On White

No Waves

There are more from this set on their way, so I'll continue to post them as they are released.
You can check more of them on BandCampTumblrYouTubeMyspace & Facebook
