Last week I went to five concerts in five nights. It was a strange and unusual experience. I will review each of the shows in a second. But first I would like to dedicate the reviews to two people.

The first would be the to the guy who put those dollar bills into the urinal at the Troubadour during the Menomena show. Dear guy, I appreciate you challenging my values in regards to wealth. But in a place where two dollars doesn't even buy you a PBR, the shame and inconvenience of pulling two dollar bills out of a pisser were not worth the effort and aroma. But I did think about it for way longer than I expected.

The other would be to the lady in the front office of the Arclight who hung up on me while trying to blow me off. Look lady, all I asked for was a picture of the Silver Surfer allegedly being held in the projection room of your overpriced theater. As soon as I told you that I wanted a picture you tried to think of a way to say "no", which is retarded because all I was trying to do was show the world that no he hadn't been stolen due to lax Arclight security. But curiously you don't want me to take a picture of it, you don't want to explain why the studio didn't take it back, and you don't want to respect the local blog that broke the story, so whatever, you acted shady and unprofessionally and therefore we will continue to believe that he was stolen under your watch. Heck of a job!

So yes, lady who hung up on me while "trying" to find someone at "the studio" to pawn me off to, and dude who put two dollars in the pisser, these reviews are for you... after the jump...
