In this day's first notable event, oft-spotted Motorhead frontman Lemmy was again spotted in LA. This time by Midnight Youth at SIR Studios where they were rehearsing for upcoming shows on their current tour. Despite popping up in numerous metal-tourist accounts of visits to LA, largely due to his frequenting the infamous Rainbow Bar on Sunset Strip, Lemmy's appearance was still notable enough for Midnight Youth vocalist Jeremy Redmore to post about it on his blog that seven people read.
Hard Rock CafeOk, back to regular prose! This was a Thursday night in LA and we started it off at the launch of the Worldwide Radio Summit that we're appearing at. The event was held at the Hard Rock Cafe on Hollywood Boulevard(which had me singing Ryan Adams to myself in my head all night) and basically consisted of some free drinks and nibbles while some of the featured acts played in what was a horrible-sounding room. So we didn't last long there haha. Notable though!
Once we left Hard Rock Cafe we headed down the boulevard a wee bit to what is apparently a "cool" area called Franklin Village. We met up with some friends and happened upon happy hour at 11pm at a great little bar called Birds. $2 beers and (stupidly-large) LA shots ensued while we whiled away the night till close. Everything closes up at 2am in LA so it was a good excuse for me to get to bed and rest a bit before our first show Friday. Day done.
