The switch up made this truly the most fantastically fun day evah!! I made new friends and there were five of us piled in an SUV driving around looking for pizza places we think would be "the" place. By the grace of Amanda who drove all the way from Nevada, we were able to locate the correct location and ended up around 110+ in line. We picked up our wristband and were given a little note: "Psych. See you tonight at Spaceland...blah blah blah....No line ups before 7:30pm....blah, blah, blah" It was brilliant and I loved every heart pounding moment of it. Certainly made the time go by.

I had never been to Spaceland. Turns out Foos played their first gig there in 1995 and were closing out the last club Spaceland ever tonight. The venue is tiny. Word is it holds about 300 bodies. By the time the Foos took stage, it felt like every crevice of that club was filled. And I'm gonna say that I was a bit surprised to get hit in the nose by a flying foot of some guy who was crowd surfing. A first for me. I'm sure the Roxy last night was off the hook, and I can't compare since I didn't make that one, but tonight seemed extreme high energy and I enjoyed watching every moment of it.

Time for bed but something tells me it will be awhile before sleep takes me away. G'night.

Easily my favorite show of the 3....crowd wasnt quite roxy like but it was about 35 degrees warmer in front of the stage than it was last night



Soooooooo bummed my little foo-cation ends now....Wouldn't it be something if they still played a few more shows?

Stuff about tonight that hasn't been said? New breakdown to All My Life. I dug it.


Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale strolled in just before Foos went on.....They may have decided to leave because it was a sauna or it may have been because a certain employee of this band rocked out to Generator right next to the guy from Bu$h......I'm not sure which

At this point the LA scenester is probably a better source of info than me.....I got a list tof the "tour" dates before booking my flight that already changed

Outside of interweb leaks you all got, I haven't known the exact venue for either of the last 3 shows with 100% certainty until a few hours before the gig.....

They did a little different breakdown part for AML at the SECC in Glasgow '07. I don't know if I can post links here yet but I'm sure it is on youtube. It was just a small change but sounded pretty cool to me!

Absolutely! There's one right there on Sunset, easy on/easy off the 101.

How great would that be, a "Moon over my Hammy" WHILE enjoying Foo Fighters!
Totally reasonable!

I am so glad everyone had fun. Easily one of my fave venues in L.A. (sans the parking issue - but I'm usually lucky).

For those bitching about the crowds - it's L.A. - get the piss over it. You're always going to have disinterested industry assholes and whores floating in. Don't be either and you should be good.

Iphone will not work when they make the announcement via foofighters.fm . Not sure if you have an Android phone and the site works on that type of phone to play the audio. I know the Samsung Galaxy Tablet works when playing the foofighters.fm station if you know the exact station you want to listen to on the player.

So do people just start moving from their homes/offices as soon as foo radio announces it? Selling out in 45-50 is too fast for me to get anywhere.

Most folks head out to L.A. early and wait for the announcement so they will be somewhat closer to the venue.
