It Might Get Loud

imgl

I had a sweet gig on Sunday night. Before I tell you about it, let me introduce the other players in my group.

On lead: Matt Knoles

On rhythm/lead (electric): Tom Hilzer

On rhythm (acoustic): Scott Anderson

On Bass: Brad McCarter

Band Manager: Tad Clark

Producer: Scott Shiffman

We are THE TICKET STUBS!! WE LOVE YOU SANTA BARBARA! DO YOU VALIDATE?!

We saw Davis Guggenheim‘s IT MIGHT GET LOUD!! I’m not sure about the convenience of this truth, but the truth is, this film is cool! I was gonna write that this film rocked, but that was way too obvious. So instead I chose to go with the-so-much-more-creative “cool”. Oooo! Did you see what I did there? Guggenheim directed An Inconvenient Truth so I said the thing about the convenience and then I said “cool” and that movie was about Global Warming!! Booya!

I’m not a strong writer. I’m also not a strong guitar player and tonight proves it. Oh man! What a line up! We got to witness Jack White, The Edge and freaking Jimmy Page!! Each player bringing their own unique style and sound, each story inspiring . I found myself wanting to practice guitar WAY more. Tom said he was ready to get rid of all his guitars. See? Inspiring! Unlike this write up… I’m done! I DID NOT HATE IT!!

PS – The Ticket Stubs have decided to disband due to artistic differences. And Brad’s drug habit. And Matt is a show-off. And Tom and Scott Anderson fight constantly. And Scott Shiffman is working with the Jonas Bros. And Tad stole our money.

  1. Wow. Quick turn around on the review. I was inspired too.

  2. Breaking news: Ticket Stubs announce reconciliation gig. Film at eleven.

  3. Do Edge and LL Cool J get their beanies at the same place?

  4. I saw it. Meh. Kinda hard to get past Jack White trying so desperately to be cool throughout the entire movie. That must be ultra-mega exhausting.

    Jimmy Page, however, is a pimp. Every other shot was someone driving him through the English countryside. Pimp.

    Poor Edge. Lost amongst two blues dudes.

    I saw this with a bunch of music chumps too…fun, but not as inspiring as I’d hoped.
