So on Tuesday night was our big A-Trak night. I must say the venue which was “Ole Madrid” before and now is called ”Voyeur” is not as nice as it looks on the website. . . . The pictures looked nothing like the actual cub- Sorry Voyeur but whoever is in charge must be more organized- I was in the club industry before so I know how it is- The decoration inside looked like they just went to target and purchased some plastic lamps and some semi-nice mirrors. The lights are probably the only thing they have going for them. I mean the economy is bad but seriously for San Diego and being on 5th?? street hmmm no good.- – Voyeur a 4.5 outta 10. We got to Voyeur at 9:30-10 to get good parking so we decided to swing by and went ahead and took a look inside . . . there was nobody there- I mean Tuesday night and all, understandable but Starbucks next door was more happening! We thought maybe it will get better by the end of the night . . . . but it only went downhill. A-Trak didn’t come on until 11:30 pm which is a little late but whatever- the dance floor was tiny and the bar was not at all impressive. We fortunately were up in the VIP but again not much difference. . . . Ole Madrid what happened??? Anyway, I wont even mention the bathrooms.
Overall A-Trak was what we went for which was all that we expected. Hope Voyeur steps up their game if they are going to continue to bring in good people. Something to keep in mind Voyeur . . . . bring Chromeo to town!
My favorite concert so far has beenFischerspooner@ HOB. Was excited about the new album and they definitely impressed me! With their strange handmade costumes, dancing, and performance art it just makes it a lot better. Both Warren Fischer and Casey Spooner are incredible like always. Only downside is that of course just like any other concert they put some of the shittiest bands up before and totally not enough of Fischerspooner . . . . Some people even missed them because they were only live for about 30 min. We were there early so we got a good spot!
Morrissey, Morrissey, Morrissey . . . . Love him and of course The Smiths but every time Coachella comes around the drive to the middle of nowhere in the heat gets to me. I much rather see him @ Universal Studios. I mean Coachella was good when I was younger but seriously this year was my last one. I will travel anywhere else but there. Within the crowds I felt like I should of been babysitting instead of enjoying the bands. I mean 2o year olds grabbing here and there and trying to make out . . . I could be their older sister!! that was no fun- But yes also went because of Paul bit of a Beatles fan as well. Overall I loved Morrissey and his attitude like always. He has a special place in my heart
It would be nice if I could see Sebastian Tellier. I have had some opportunities in the past but never really got around to them- booo for me! I do regret it. But still am looking forward to catching him soon- Love his new album “Sexuality” all the songs are divine. Hes got some really cool videos out too!
Last year I went to the Harbor to see Manu Chao in concert and it was awesome! Openiong act Plastilina Mosh which was also great- Had been waiting to see him in concert for a long time and he finally made here to San Diego. Got to meet Madjid Fahem who is the guitarist for Manu Chao he seriously works in perfect synch with Manu. Very nice guy from France but that is a different story-
When we got tot he Embarcadero it was packed! I had no idea how many people actually knew of him even though most of them were foreigners. Met some nice German people and of course all the Tijuaneneses were all there . . . saw some of my friends that I had not seen in years and hung out at Cafe Lulu’s afterwards. Was a very fun night never will forget it- Merci Manu + Fahem
