I would have got a decent night's sleep except that at 7 AM they started construction on the building next door - I heard banging, looked out the window & there was a guy with a hammer on the roof about 6 feet away. Grrrrr. Unable to get back to sleep I eventually just got going & drove up to Hollywood for some shopping on Melrose & a spree at Amoeba where I got some great deals on used CDs and also picked up Danzig's latest, "Black Aria II" & had a nice lunch at California Vegan which I'd always visit when I was with Amelia & had missed.
As Friday's show was in Riverside I left LA about 2 PM hoping to beat the traffic with no such luck - the 60 or so miles to Riverside too nearly 3 hours and I was most frustrated. I met up with my friend Mary at the mall there & stopped in Torrid & bought some very cute pyjama bottoms - one pair with little bats all over them & the other with purple spiderwebs & pink spiders. Then off to TGI Fridays for some dinner & we headed over to the Vibe.
Soooo great to see everybody again! And damn they are a great band, not just saying that because they are my friends but because the songs are really strong & they put on a great performance.

Since I was soooooo tired from not getting much sleep the night before we split shortly after they played to drive back to April's in Westminster & crashed out.
