Tonight in Rock in LA --Slim, so More Storm Troopers!
It seems like most of the better bands and clubs are taking this week off. No offense to those bands who are playing and those clubs that are open, but, come on, we're just keeping it real.
Because of that we will show you some video from the Rose Parade. What's interesting from this angle is the speed in which the pace of the parade was truckin' -- and the fact that most of us older Star Wars fans have a hard time remembering the names of the newer (older) characters.
But mostly we at LAist can't get enough of those Storm Troopers or the Star Wars Marching Band (the Grambling State University band).
