Post Going to see John Alderete play tonight!!!!
I'm going to see The Mars Volta play in a small club (The Opera House) in about 20 minutes. The show is sold out. It should be awesome. De-loused is an amazing album.

gooooood show. I felt old at this show with all the uber-cool kids surrounding me. The band has much energy and the guitar player plays with atonal conviction. John played a well received solo at the end of the show. He was tough to hear, but really ripped it up.

John walked right past me while the opening band was on. He looked exasperated and walked with purpose, so I didn't stop him.

Jon, Juan and Theodore stayed on their part of the stage and did their business like it was nobody's business while Omar and Cedric wailed away.

John, what kind of effects is Omar using to get those insane sounds? I hope you got a chance to see some of Toronto.

Did they play most of the songs off of de-loused?

Yeah, mostly extended versions of the songs. It seemed very free form. Thought the music is very different, it reminded me of watching old videos of Led Zeppelin.

jayjo,

I would have been excited to meet you. I have been meeting up with Racer X heads throughout this tour and it is always an awesome experience. I would have to say that I get pretty exhausted playing in this band (I am 10 years older than the oldest member!) but am never too tired to meet up with the hardcore Racer X fans.

Please, next time come up and say hi and tell me what your favorite Racer X song is.

Alderete
