I don't entirely care. Scalpers will be scalpers. I'm not gonna pay a crazy sum of money assuming their even are ones. My friend was 3 away....I'm gonna try. I missed all the LA club shows, so close on one of them.

I am beyond thrilled. Should have bailed out of work the minute I heard, but felt the need to clean off my desk. Had Fingerprints not been so well organized, this could have ended badly. But they did wristbands to secure spots in line and to eliminate anyone cutting/saving. It was a long 5 hours, but completely worth it. I am an LBC resident and this just makes me so very happy.

Good things happen to good people. So stoked you both get to go. The only thing that would make it better is if I could be there too!

THAT is exactly what Cosmo and I both said last night!! And then we recounted your recent Foo fun in Sydney and felt a little better knowing you have been having a blast. But still...want you here.

And of course, bummed that our ginger goddess, Megan was not able to make it to the LBC in time. But something tells me that she has tricks up her sleeve.

Oh, and I promised Katherine that I would do my best to get into this gig on behalf of Baby Kranx!!

Tai, pretty much 90% of what you do right now holds the added stress of knowing that I'm living vicariously through you. Tall order and so far, you've been up to the challenge.

So excited Cosmo got in. Two of my fave people - have SO MUCH FUN!

Are they allowing cameras or phones in? Would be so awesome to get some video...

...not sure about cameras/phones. Waiting to receive an email from Fingerprints with more information. We were told that there would be no "signing session" with the band. Fine by me. Just bring on the music!!

Oh, and I welcome the challenge, Katherine!! BRING IT!!

I did have a great time in Sydney and Brisbane, but we all know LA is my spiritual home.

And if anyone can wrangle a way in to a show, it's the Megalicious one.

Past Record Store Days at Fingerprints allowed cameras.
There is probably a noise restriction because there are apartments right behind the new store... most of the in-store shows are acoustic.
I'm really looking forward to this... I love Fingerprints and the people who work there. I caught some pretty good in-store shows there (Rilo KIley, Silversun Pickups, Airborne Toxic Event), but nothing compares to the Foo Fighters.

You have a better chance of getting in doing that, than staying home and wondering. If you're one of very few people that actually does that, they could just be nice and let you in. Maybe not all 200 people will show for whatever reason. Good luck!

Fingerprints moved too. If you were both still in the Shores, we could have just wheeled your bed to the show!

Added Notes:
I understand the front windows will be covered that Saturday. This is a Long Beach Police requirement. It may sound shitty, but it makes sense. The police doesn't want a bunch of people on the sidewalk, looking in.
Record Store Day is the same weekend as the Long Beach Grand Prix. L.B.P.D. will be busy. The last thing Fingerprints wants is having the police shutdown the gig because a bunch of people out front are overflowing into traffic and bus lanes on 4th Street. And the police WILL shut them down if there is a problem (ask Alex's Bar).
Also, if you go... remember, parking meters are enforced on Saturday til 6:00 P.M. Only free days are Sundays and Holidays... average meter violation fine is $65.00. Park in an unmetered space or pay for all day parking on a lot.

Grand Prix weekend? Good luck parking anywhere in a 5 mile radius!

Take Passport Shuttle B

Not knowing where you'll be driving from, I'd advise NOT exiting from the 710. Avoid Downtown at all costs. Exit from the 405, Cherry Exit. You MIGHT get lucky and find parking nearby. If not, park along 4th (or on a side street) and take Shuttle B. The farther north and east of Downtown/the beach, the better. You also want to avoid 2nd Street (unless you like crowds).

I'm probably going to park further East... unhitch my bike and ride in.

Can you imagine what the logistics of a Foo Fighter gig at the old store in Belmont Shore... on Grand Prix Weekend would have been like?!?!?
