LIVE from the ROXY, Sunset Strip, Los Angeles Valentines Day 2017

by Walt Frasier @waltfrasier

We had a blast in California the past week.  Thanks to all the Duchovniacs that hung out  with us before and at the shows. Tons of fun.

We had the pleasure of hearing three new songs this week.

  • Stranger in the Sacred Heart
    SAN DIEGO DEBUT
    My inside intel reports – David told me – STRANGER is title track from new album
  • Half Life (aka Unconditional Love)
    LA DEBUT
  • Roman Coin
    SAN DIEGO DEBUT

Sorry. We were going back and fourth between the title of the song. Turns out Unconditional Love is called “Half Life”

So with four new tracks from Europe (and other tours) that makes seven originals not on Hell or Highwater.

I am still partial to Every Third Thought, but absolute love all three new songs. Each brings an interesting variety of style and each has a great story. Half Life is fighting for the top spot. Stranger and Roman Coin are neck and neck right behind.

We also got two new covers this past week. The band played THE WEIGHT by The Band. Pat, Keenan and Colin all took a  verse. (The same three delivered some new vocals on THE THINGS as well – see SAN DIEGO wrap up)

For many of us the new tour highlight might be “The Manana Club” (as David calls his band) rockin out on Sweet Jane from Lou Reed and the Velvet Underground. No prisoners taken as Sebastian sets the tempo and Pat wails on the guitar.

ANOTHER HIGHLIGHT – David and the entire band putting on Pink Pussy Hats showing solidarity for Women’s March and on going movement.

WEST COAST TOUR WRAP…

We got home late Thursday night.

Last night we tried to follow along Portland concert via tweets and instagrams.  I have already blogged about San Diego (CLICK HERE). I need to relate some stories from LA and San Francisco.

For the LA Show – I missed the VIP Sound Check Party for this night. Laurice did live tweet a few answers from Brad interviewing David

Before Keaton Simons took stage, we had the pleasure of hearing a few tunes from
The Walcotts.

Then it was time for Keaton to take the stage. We have seen Keaton before in NYC. But this was something else. Super high-energy phenomenal performance all around.

Love this shit f yeah

I met a guy at the Rainbow next door – most famous for being the place to pee while waiting to get into the Roxy. this guy was a lead bouncer but now drinking at the bar. Some guys said – it’s his birthday. I said Happy Birthday. Right before David was about to go on, I see him again and once again say HAPPY BIRTHDAY. He remembered me from before and related his Birthday was awesome because he was drinking earlier with Steve Jones, and apparently I was right next to him. Perhaps one less margarita and I would have noticed the Sex Pistols guitarist and Californication guest star.

David finally took stage around 9:30. Opening with 3000 and Let it Rain and Stars.

WE HAD TOO MUCH FUN

PLEASE NOTE – If you are in the front row for a show at the ROXY there is a curtain that is dropped down very quickly after a musical act leaves the stage. If you don’t GTFO of the way the curtain will DROP very close or possibly on your head.

See a clip of it catching us all of guard

 

 

We drove back to the hotel and all crashed almost immediately.

UP NEXT SAN FRANCISCO… TO BE CONTINUED…

PS

WE LOVE ALL OUR DUCHOVNIACS FRIENDS FOLLOWING FROM HOME TOO!!!
