LA Pride booked 30 bands. None of them were to my liking. I know this for a fact. I live one block away and have heard every single alternative-style-rock-is-so-not-relevant-anymore note. Okay, maybe I'm being a little harsh. That isn't totally true.

How can you go wrong with a band that sings "Music is my boyfriend...Music is my favorite waitress...Music is my beach house...Music is my king-size bed." They are, as their song says "Off da hook! Ahhhh Oooooo!"
