Imagine my surprise as I walked up to get in line for Redd Kross and hear Thee Oh Sees blasting from inside. At first I thought there was a separate show going on but didn’t hear a crowd. A girl in line said they were now playing in Eagles of Death Metal’s place. I look in the diner window (yup, the show was on the floor of the hotel diner. Hell yeah! I just saw them earlier that day in the sweaty, dust clouded, testosterone fueled Mojave tent at Coachella. Now I get a surprise second dose (apparently they couldn’t announce because of contract). I braced myself for a very late night and early morning drive back to Los Angeles. It was worth it!

THEE OH SEES – Ace Hotel (Palm Springs, CA) April 22, 2013

Thee Oh Sees tearing it up. If you haven’t seen them, DO! There were a lot of converts this night. the one thing about still photos of Thee Oh Sees is that it doesn’t do justice to their live show.

REDD KROSS – Ace Hotel (Palm Springs, CA) April 22, 2013

It was late. 1:30 am. Who cares. I just saw Thee Oh Sees play a kick-ass set and now the one and only Redd Kross. It was worth staying up past bedtime. Plagued with bad sound and monitor issues, the show went on and Redd Kross plowed through their set like the life-long troopers we know and love.  I was stoked they did Follow The Leader” and can’t get enough of their new album. My fave release of 2012.
