I too attended the HOB show and was lucky enough to get a seat on the inside second level rail . I knew once i called the Key club and asked for a seating arrangement that it would be worse ! I really hope that future shows will be at venues with assigned seating.

Yes, we were there... and even after all the waiting in line, the bonehead security, the mystery VIP tickets, the mall-like food court & the questionable mixed drinks inside the Key Club... it was absolutely fabulous... exhilerating... furiously fun! I believe I was attempting to carry out my own personal DANCE CONTEST. Cheers!!! 8)

Right on Duster!
Jeeez Louise. I'm sorry to see this forum turn into a wailing wall over the venue. When you see "Standing Room Only", what do you expect?
Old fuckers like me don't get out much, and when we do we need a seat, ample refreshments and a toilet. I was willing to tough it out if there were no other options. Maybe bring a pair of crutches and a catheter.

Persistance and several telephone calls to the Key Club VIP reservation dude netted me two sky box seats. A bit pricey but I was in heaven! Check this out....after paying the extra bucks for seats, I never sat down during the entire show! The music was that good.
So alla youze whiners can just shaddup. If you really enjoy FZ's music, especially played live, the venue shouldn't matter so much.
Nuff said. Now I've become the whiner. :roll:

I think it's "Son of Orange County" referring to R. Nixon.
I couldn't believe that I was hearing the "Son of O.C.", live segue into "Trouble Every Day". Whoooa.

A stand out moment: Scheila holds her own in guitar/sax duel with Vai and Dweezil even adding her own windmill arm action to match Vai’s entertaining histrionics. The band was clearly having fun.]

("Ditto? You provincial putz!") Er...I couldn't agree more!

I am very proud of Dweezil and what he's done in honor of his father. When he played what appeared to be his dad's Les Paul, (am I correct?) tears began to fall.
To have a son or daughter pick up the "tools of the trade" and continue the family business with such quality and care is the greatest reward a father can receive.
I impatiently await the next show.
P.S. Any chance of doing "Happy Together" as a closer? :D

Gravity is God.

The evening began with a 3 hour drive from the comforts of Marina Del Rey to the discomfort of an Indian reservation bunghole. First thing we noticed was a series of ghettofied SUV's in the parking lot with all the "happy family" and Raiders stickers on the back windshields. Then we knew we had arrived at a real "high class" location.

It was no surprise to find our VIP tickets which were extra $$$, put us into the general population, where we felt just so "VIP." In addition our tickets got us an exciting 3 hour wait. Woo-hoo!

The show itself was worth it. Napoleon's energy was better than pancakes at St. Alfonso's. Terry Bozzio is a god and it was funny when his wife tried to stand up front and watch him and the genius security guard with an itty bitty weenie yelled at her to move back and she looked at him like Godzilla's breakfast. Inca Roads was pure sweetness as was Black Napkins and The Tortue Never Stops and the sax playing was like butter. All in all awesome.

At the end we tossed some hot porno DVD party favors at the door of the high class establishment. They were called, "Sassy Cats" and "Bedroom Bruises." hehehehe. If you found them let me know and we hope you enjoyed them!

Viva Frank Zappa!
