So, today, as I was watching/dancing to Yo Gabba Gabba with my kids and I was a bit blown away. First, I hear this great guitar composition and then the voice comes in. Who's voice? The voice of Mark Kozelek! Who is Mark Kozelek you ask? Just click his name in the last sentence. He is LITERALLY one of the last musicians/bands I have yet to see live (besides Erlend Oye and the rest of his crew). Isaac was singing the words to the song. My son, he knows a Mark Kozelek song that I don't!
Then, later on Smoosh shows up to sing a song (never really was a fan of their music but hats off to these 2 girls who when they first busted on the scene were like 10!).
I keep staring at DJ Lance Rock thinking, you know, somehow I've seen this guy before. I know, to me, everyone looks like somebody I know because somehow everyone looks like somebody from one of the hundreds of weddings I've shot. So, I start to poke around on the internets and come to find out indeed I've actually seen and met mr "DJ Lance Rock". He played in a band called the Raymakers who I saw when they opened for either Add N to (X) or Lou Barlow/Folk Implosion who I saw YEARS ago (2000/1?) at the Silverlake Lounge (LA).
Random yes, but it totally made my day. Just as my kids were rocking out to DJ Lance Rock today, I too was rocking out to him just the same just 8 or so years ago. It has all come full circle. Now if I could just somehow see Mark Kozelek...
