Well it was quite military finance holiday season back in 08/09 and even though we had to finally head back to the Bal Hinch, we decided to go out with a bang. While my offspring and I definitely march to the beat of different drums, there is one thing we are in total agreement on, GOOD MUSIC. I taught him at an early age to not let MTV or the radio station try and tell YOU what good music is. I fed him a steady diet of musical obscurity and let him make up his own mind. With that said, we decided to spend our last night, in the sweet spot, (right behind the sound board), at the new Pearl music theater at the Palms for an intimate evening of music from your favorite junkie, Scott Weiland and the boys from STP. It was a great way to end a great holiday and a great way to start the new year………

LIVIN LA VIDA LOVEDART…….LIVE FROM LAS VEGAS………..THE FINAL DAY

GOOD MORNING LOUNGERS……..WELL THERES ABOUT 24 HOURS LEFT BEFORE ITS TIME TO RETURN TO REALITY SO I GUESS ITS TIME TO WRAP THINGS UP.

IF MY BRAIN CELLS SERVE ME WELL, IM GUESSING IVE BEEN TO ABOUT 150 CONCERTS OVER 30+ PLUS YEARS AND I MUST SAY, THE PEARL THEATER AT THE PALMS HOTEL HERE IN kings payday loans VEGAS IS BY FAR THE FINEST VENUE IVE EVER SET FOOT IN. THIS PLACE WAS BUILT FOR MUSIC. 2100 SEATS AND NOT A SINGLE ONE FURTHER THAN 120 FEET FROM THE STAGE. THE SOUND IS AS CLOSE TO PERFECT AS ANYTHING IVE HEARD. GEORGE MALOOF GOT HIS SHIT STRAIGHT WHEN HE BUILT THIS PLACE. THERE ISINT A BAD SEAT IN THE HOUSE AND THATS NOT JUST TALK. IF YOU EVER COME TO VEGAS, THE FIRST THING YOU NEED TO DO IS CHECK AND SEE IF THERES ANYONE PLAYING HERE THAT APPEALS TO YOU AND THEN GET A TICKET AT ALL COSTS. YOU WONT BE DISAPPOINTED. THEY EVEN LET YOU BRING CAMERAS IN AS YOU WILL SEE WHEN I POST PICS WHEN I GET BACK.

WE GOT THERE ABOUT 30 MINUTES BEFORE THE SHOW AND SETTELED INTO OUR SEATS AT DEAD CENTER IN ROW ONE JUST OFF THE FLOOR AND RIGHT BEHIND THE SOUND BOARD. ROW 1 IS ELEVATED ABOUT 6 FEET ABOVE THE FLOOR SO WE WERE ABLE TO SEE THE ENTIRE SHOW SITTING COMFORTABLE LOOKING OVER THE HEADS OF EVERYONE ON THE FLOOR.

THE OPENING BAND CAME OUT, A GROUP OUT OF L.A. CALLED BILLYS BLIND POISON. THE BASS PLAYER WAS WEARING A SCARF AND SOMEONE FROM THE CROWD WITH LITTLE PAITENCE FOR quick money spells OPENING BANDS INSTANTLY YELLED UP AND ASKED WHERE HIS DRESS WAS. OVERALL THEY GOT A MILD RESPONSE BUT IT WAS OBVIOUS EVERYONE WAS THERE TO SEE STONE TEMPLE PILOTS.

STP TOOK THE STAGE AND FOR THE NEXT TWO HOURS LIT THE PLACE UP. NOW LETS JUST SAY SCOTT WEILAND WASNT THE PICTURE OF SOBRIETY BUT HE HAD COMMAND OF THE STAGE FROM MINUTE ONE. ALMOST ANY SONG YOU COULD THINK OF WANTING TO HEAR WAS COVERED AND BY THE END OF THE SHOW EVERYONE IN THE HOUSE WAS EXHAUSTED. AT THE END OF THE SHOW THEY CALLED THE ENTIRE CREW ONSTAGE AND THANKED EVERYONE, MENTIONING THAT THIS WOULD BE THIER LAS SHOW FOR A VERY LONG TIME. (IS ANOTHER BREAKUP LOOMING)? IF SO IM GLAD I GOT TO SEE THE LAST SHOW BECAUSE IT WAS A HELL OF A GOOD ONE AND WE HAVE THE PICS TO PROVE IT. ILL BE POSTING THEM UPON RETURN TO THE LOUNGE LATER THIS WEEK.

WELL LOUNGERS, ITS BEEN A HELL OF A TRIP AND I CANT SAY THANK YOU ENOUGH FOR THE OVERWHELMING RESPONSE TO THE VIDEO AND OUR DAILY BLOG. TO DATE, THE BLOG HAS HAD OVER 300 HITS OVER THE HOLIDAYS AND THE VIDEO HAS BEEN VIEWED IN THE BALLPARK OF 150 TIMES. ITS parrot payday loan NUMBERS LIKE THAT, THAT WILL KEEP THE LOUNGE CRANKING OUT NEW MATERIAL ON A REGULAR BASIS. WE NOW HAVE 40 MEMBERS ON THE SITE AND IT CONTINUES TO GROW.
