The Red Hot Chili Peppers @ The Roxy, 11/13
For over twenty years the funky white boys from Fairfax High have been delivering the goods with their band the Red Hot Chili Peppers and last night at the Roxy for a super secret show to launch Microsoft's Zune media player, it's almost as if they were playing to each other.
In fact, before one tune they improvised at all the bands that they had seen over the years at the Roxy. Typically the Chili Peppers could be found at much larger venues like the Palladium or the Forum, but on this very special evening it was the homeboys going through many of their newest tunes as well as a few chestnuts.
We'll have more details soon in a proper review, but since we had some video, we figured we'd share.
Besides, Atlanta launched the so-called iPod killer with rapper TI, Seattle had The Secret Machines which included a visit from Bill Gates, NYC got QOTSA, Chicago rocked out with Lupe Fiasco, and Miami got the Morgan Heritage Band - so since LA got the biggest and best band we had to represent with some video love.
