My girlfriend and I spent this past Saturday at the KROQ Weenie Roast, which featured, as usual, a stellar lineup: this year, Coldplay, Incubus, Garbage, Silversun Pickups, Pennywise and a special appearance by Soundgarden.
Thanks to the very kind largess of Pete Parada -- all-around great guy and drummer for the Offspring, who also happened to be playing -- we got not only tickets to the show but all-access passes. As usual, hanging with Pete was a blast and there's no denying that watching the Offspring and Soundgarden from the side of the stage was one of those little rock and roll fantasies come to life for yours truly.
Here now area couple of highlights from the show -- at least the ones currently uploaded to YouTube from the actual KROQ video feed.
First up, all of the Offspring's set (wish I could do something about the hiccups in the video).
Here's Garbage doing Vow.
And finally, Coldplay -- Yellow.
