I have my share of favorite movie theaters that I like to go to. I usually prefer watching a movie at one of these theaters instead of catching up a main-stream movie. My #1 theater just went down and it made me really sad. Yes, I am talking about Harvard Exit Theater. I loved that theater. Apparently, SIFF now owns the place. Atleast one of the movie halls. Gotta go see the “new place”.

I am planning to start posting a line or two about the movies I watch. Just cos I enjoy some of them so much.

For the record, these are the Seattle area:
Harvard Exit Theater
Seven Gables Theater
Guild 45th
Egyptian Theater

Faith No More, Paramount – Seattle

The future of rock-n-roll is safe, Faith No More is back! What a show and I mean, why did these guys not play together for all this while? I am so glad I made it to this show… Mike Patton is mind-blowing and the band had so much energy!

Chris Robinson Brotherhood, Neumos – Seattle (2015)

How amazing can a band sound? Well, you gotta go listen to the Chris Robinson Brotherhood if you wanna know. Man they just sounds very very sweet to my ears. The harmonies, the interplay of the instruments, the sound… just amazing. What a great band this is. I love the entire band. Every member. Just amazing. Do go see them live if you have a chance…

Damien Rice, McCaw Hall – Seattle

Some shows are good, some are mind-blowing but a very few will remain etched in your memory forever! Damien Rice at McCaw hall will be for me. Amazing show that I almost missed. Now I am glad I did not miss it…

Stone Temple Pilots, Paramount – Seattle

The album Core by Stone Temple Pilots was one of my favorites during my school/college days. I used to listen to their first four albums every once in a while. I did go back and forth a couple of times before finally deciding to go see the show. Part of the reason for the second thought was the fact that Scott was not going to be there. Yet, I am glad I went!

I have to say that the sound was not the best. Boomy base that overshadowed the guitar for my taste.¬†Chester Bennington was at home with the rest of the band and the crowd liked him as well. He sings well and was able to engage with the crowd. I was surprised to see that I still remember the lyrics to so many of their songs. I guess the memories of the band playing “Plush” with some help from the crowd will remain etched for ever!¬†One other cool thing is that, the band seemed to be enjoying themselves very much. Its always more fun with the band is also enjoying themselves.

Young veteran

I am a big Novak Djokovic fan. I love his game and also how he enjoys himself all the time. Check this video where he is called a “veteran” by a journalist for the first time, his reaction is so cool:

Bob Malone + Arthur Migliazza, The Royal Room – Seattle

I attended this show to see Arthur Migliazza play. I saw him open for Jeff Fielder earlier and he was amazing that time. Since then I have been wanting to see him again and finally it happened. Well, almost anyway. He was again an opener. There were two sets and both were pretty brief. Both sets were opened by Arthur and Bob will close them out. Arthur is amazing. Playing some amazing Boogie-Woogie and Rag. He has a great stage presence as well. I will have to see him another time. Bob was cool too. Good show overall.
