Saw KISS last night. It was pretty epic. They have the best shoes & outfits. Gene Simmons tongue in real life was so long. He was also wearing a metal attachment that looked like a spine on his man parts, it caused a sea of screams in the crowd. The show was super good. Impressed with the lights & pyro. I have never actually seen Molson Amp THAT packed. The crowd leaving was so tame, like a flock of sheep. Totally last minute totally awesome! Happy Friday!

Blind Pilot played the closing party of Ford’s Go Further conference in Michigan this week. The show was awesome. It was romantic as the sun was setting during the show. They have a show coming up July 25th in Toronto at The Opera House. I’ll be there. Here’s a little message from Blind Pilot’s lead singer Israel. What a beard! Swoon.

“So, this is my life. And I want you to know that I am both happy and sad and I’m still trying to figure out how that could be.” Excited for the Perks of Being a Walflower movie. Trailer came out last night during the MTV Awards.  If you are in Canada you can not see this trailer but you can watch at mtv.ca.
