The Saturday night talent show was an evening with three So Cal based stoner rock bands performing at El Cid in Silver Lake CA. on February 1st 2014. At first I thought it would be fun idea to have a competition to see who’s the better band in the LA rock scene. By giving the audience scorecards and having them judge the night, but must people don’t want to think about anything other then having some beers, rocking out and enjoying some live music. “House Of Broken Promises” started out the night by throwing down a bunch of new songs that were sounding really good, and they kicked the night into high gear by setting the bar pretty high for the rest to follow. The second band up was “The Ultra Electric Mega Galactic” a psychedelic, stoner, instrumental rock band with Ed Mundell on the guitar who’s a shredder like no other. I’ve really taken a liking to this band and I hope to see more of them in the near future. The night belongs to the power trio, and closing out this special event was “Sasquatch” who I haven’t seen in quite some time, but I’m glad they were headlining the talent show. They delivered a powerful set playing songs off their latest album, and rocking out the classics too. You know it really would be hard to judge talent show like this because I thought all the bands where great! So if I had to score the bands based on how they sounded, and their stage performance, on a scale of 1 to 10 I would give all three bands an eight. Which I think is fare, but who am I to judge anything.

Gibson amphitheater will always be one of my favorite venues to see live music
in Los Angeles. It had the best sound system, and there wasn't a bad seat in
the house. I'm just glad I got to shoot photos of Queens Of The Stone Age just before they
shut the doors to this historic concert hall. it's bad this has to happen. Roll over Beethoven and make room for Harry Potter.
