I'm too tired to think of a title

*Thank you* to Audy for sending me these pictures from last night to share here at keanuvision. See more over at Club-Keanu.


1650kr072104axThxAudy.jpgI can't think straight at ALL. I'm not hung over, just exhausted. Still, I will attempt to summarize my adventures even though some of them are a bit fuzzy, seeing as how I was drunk.

Actually, "I was drunk" is a pretty good summary in itself and will also be my defense for any number of things that may or may not have happened. The day started out being stuck for over an hour just 60 miles out of Vegas on I-15 and by the time I was gypped out of the pad thai that I so wanted for dinner, I was fucking ready for that martini with Marcie and Alan before the show. I only had the one with them, but as soon as we got to 1650 (where I was flatteringly carded) I ordered another.

This made meeting new people and trying to remember names ever so challenging. It was great seeing some familiar faces from other shows and meeting some new faces to put with the names I knew from online. I also almost made a new friend of some strange guy who looks nothing like Roi, yet I mistoook for him anyway just because he was wearing black. So, forgive me. I'm not going to rattle off who I saw/met for fear of forgetting someone.

OK, fast forward. krix drinks, smokes and quite possibly embarasses herself but has a good time. Good bands play (check out thepaige.com) and the crowd fills the first few rows in front of the stage waiting for becky to come on.

Which they did, at a little after 10:30. I have no idea of the set list, but I know they played Disco, Shut It Off and One Thing. They didn't do Oblivious or Evangeline (which Roi really wanted to hear). Even though the set seemed to be short, everything sounded great. Keanu kicked ass, even Roi remarked at how good his playing was. I know there were several points when I was just awestruck.

I also know that I should have put my camera away after taking just a few shots and just enjoyed the show. I'm really annoyed at myself for doing this instead of just watching him play and won't even be bringing my camera next time.

Aside from that (which is all my own fault and yes, I'll still be uploading the pics I wasted my focus with later tonight), I have to say that it was worth the complete crap I feel like today.

It looks so worth it.

The last time I was carded was about 5 year ago. I was really flattered until I realized as a club policy they card everyone. I'm so naive.

For enduring the pain of today and taking the time to share with us underprivileged, I thank you. And thanks to Audy (whom I thanked at C-K already but twice is not enough) for the nice sweaty bassage.

dude, stop taking care of US and take care of YOURSELF! in otherwords, dump the camera and just enjoy it next time - especially if you're *lit*...

I know, I know.

Yes, the "underprivileged" fans do thank you for your report and the fact that you're always thinking of us! :)
Thanks to Audy too for sharing her pics! Keanu has such an intense look on his face. Like he just forgets about everything but his bass. I would like to see that look in person someday!
In between work, practice and everything else you've got going on, try and get some rest Krix! You've earned it! :)

Did you really say that watching a guy play music is like watching them have sex?

If so, I am going to the next "show".

Glad you had a good time and got home safe.

Joining in the chorus of people telling you to take care of yourself.

Aw, come on, guys. Drunk photography is an art in itself. Who here hasn't tried it at least once? ;o)

Thank you krix for your report. And yes, taking picture is very distracting. You can't enjoy the show as much, but thanks for your efforts.

And yes, Audy rocks!

Krix...you have such a way of capturing a moment with words...it's almost like I was right there with you ;-)

Posted by: audy on July 22, 2004 05:48 PM

dude! wow.i feel really about all my timing mix ups...and this other family stuff....

Posted by: wanda on July 22, 2004 06:01 PM

Krix, your words and pics certainly captured a really super time. (Major thanx!) Seeing another Beckyband gig = soooo good ! One super gig-hangout friend and I thought we heard some more new Beckyband jams.. (Makes an impressively good repertoire even better.) Keanu’s even more animated performance onstage was total coolness!

After a seeming eternity gig-wise, last night = def rock-out heaven. YAY! [Our guy’s always into so many good projects! :) ] Didn’t realize just how much Beckyband’s electric rambunctiousness was missed. Still hyped from a cool breeze of an evening.. (YAY, Rebecca, Rob, Paulie and Keanu!).

BTW, Club Fifteen Sixty = another good vibe venue .
