Photo set: L7 at the Fonda, July 16th and 17th, Hollywood, CA

L7 at the Fonda Theatre in Hollywood, CA July 16 & 17, 2015 I never got to see L7 the first time around, so I’m making up for lost time.  I’m three for three for the recent LA L7 shows (Echo in May and both Fonda shows) and I’m happy to say that they didn’t disappoint and exceeded my high expectations at all shows.  They rock so hard and continue to represent the ultimate in attitude and swagger.  The Fonda was packed with a diverse audience- all different ages, lots of people seeing them for the first time.  Aside from two of my favorite songs (Baggage and Broomstick), the setlist had everything I’d hoped to hear including Fast and Frightening- a ferocious closer.  There was a rad poster at the merch booth commemorating both shows.  If you missed getting one, a limited amount are being sold on Garageland’s site. The documentary that seems to have sparked the reunion is scheduled to be released be in October, based on the last kickstarter update I received.  In the meantime, another CA show has been added on August 28th at the Regency Ballroom in San Fransisco, plus dates on the Riot Fest and East Coast in the Fall.

Twin Peaks sightseeing, May 2015

I recently visited Seattle for a long weekend.  I’m a huge fan of Twin Peaks and David Lynch, so I took a day trip to Snoqualmie and North Bend to check out some of the filming locations from the TV show.   Here are some digitized images of the analog shots I took with my Diana F+ camera.

Photoset: L7 at the Echo in Los Angeles, CA 5/28/2015

May 28, 2015 L7 at the Echo in Los Angeles, CA

I was one of the lucky people to get into L7’s “warm-up” show on Thursday.  The Echo was the location for the revival meeting and L7 was preaching to their choir, thumping their crazy beats leaving us seeing stars.  Yes, Scrap is one of my faves, and it was one of 18 songs on a killer setlist!  Donita, Suzi and Jennifer traded off lyrics while Dee held it all down with the ferocious heartbeat of the drums.  I’ve waited a long time to see L7 live and they exceeded every hope I had.  LA has two more shows to look forward to in July at the Fonda. There is also a documentary in the works called “L7: Pretend We’re Dead“, which you can read more about on the kickstarter page.

WELCOME BACK L7!!
