This is the End: The Psychedelic Furs, She Wants Revenge @ The Fillmore, 6/22/10

A last minute invite had me happily returning to The Fillmore for the second night in a row. As I entered the building, nodding at all of the familiar faces that work there, I thought about how I’m going to have to learn a whole new scene in Austin and San Antonio once I’m able […]

Open Heart Surgery: Brian Jonestown Massacre, Federale @ The Fillmore, 6/21/10

I guess you could say that it’s somewhat poetic that the week of my return to San Francisco for the last time would be populated by shows from my most favorite bands. However, all I wanted to do is crawl under the covers and sleep. And I don’t usually sleep more than 4 hours a […]

Death & Taxes: The Dead Weather, The Ettes @ The Fillmore, 4/15/10

It was love at first sound. Last time I saw The Dead Weather, on the chilly third day of last summer’s Outside Lands, I went from skeptical to smitten in about 60 seconds. It was that. good. Alison. Jack. Dean. Jack. Three normal sounding names for four not very normal people. The kind of chemistry […]

Living the Dream: Anvil, Attitude Adjustment @ The Fillmore, 2/6/10

The story on Anvil has been inspiring music lovers for a year now. We’ve seen this Cinderella play out in front of our very eyes….from the moment they walk onstage in Japan to a sold out crowd at the end of the film…..to two sold out screenings/appearances at the Bridge Theater…..to now playing at the […]

Made in Japan: Dir En Grey @ The Fillmore, 11/23/09

Over the years, Dir En Grey has come up as a band I should check out. I had tried listening to them several times, and it just never stuck. But when I read this article that talked about fans lining up the night before to see these guys- I knew there had to be some […]

Rain When I Die ~ An Evening with Alice in Chains @ The Fillmore, 9/28/09

If Nine Inch Nails has been the soundtrack to my life, Alice in Chains has tried to be the soundtrack to my death on multiple occasions. It all started off well – my first real kiss was while listening to the SAP EP. Then, when I was 14 years old, one day after school I […]

Slightly Horrified by The Horrors set, w/ The Kills, The Magic Wands @ The Fillmore, 5/19/09

What the fuck was I thinking sandwiching this show into my NIN/JA week! Seriously, though, I was stoked to be seeing The Horrors, and had these tickets before my NIN/JA tickets. They look like mods with a flair of The Ramones, and sound like The Birthday Party…yum. Of course I didn’t know that there was […]

Chris Cornell Makes Me Scream @ The Grand, 5/1/09

I said I wouldn’t do it. I was going to pass up seeing Chris Cornell this time around because my experience with last year’s Fillmore Scream set was slightly traumatizing. I really tried to be open minded about this Timbaland album, but I just can’t do it. I don’t know if that makes me a […]

Ladytron < The Faint @ The Fillmore, 4/29/09

It was the first night of The Faint and Ladytron’s two night mini residency at The Fillmore. As co-headliners, each band would take a turn closing (imagine that!). Guess which night I picked? The Faint’s closing night, because I just like them like that. It was to be my first time seeing Ladytron. I’ve skipped […]

Primal Scream, Brian Jonestown Massacre, Kuroma @ The Fillmore, 3/17/09

I decided to go early tonight. I was viewing this show as a co-headliner affair: I love Brian Jonestown Massacre, and I really like Primal Scream. The Fillmore was practically empty as I walked into the ballroom and claimed a spot at the rail. Promptly at 8, Kuroma opened the show. Lead singer Hank Sullivant […]
