    Re: MiG

    My concert report:

    Okay... wiping the sleep from my eyes and I will try to sound somewhat coherent about this concert experience. Certainly the best MiG concert I have been to ever. To hear him play an actual set of songs and being able to get to talk to him without screaming over anything or anyone was such nice treat.

    So a little about the venue, Joy took some pictures of it, my camera was pretty much spot on MiG the whole time but I loved the venue. It was literally the backyard of someone’s house. They had seats around the edges and lots of huge cushions, which I am sure, have a technical name that I don’t know, all over the lawn. Jen and sat on the one right in front of MiG’s piano and Stacy and Joy sat right behind us on another cushion thingy.

    So we go in after MiG has done his soundcheck and me being the shy, timid wallflower that I am literally go right up to where MiG is seated still at the piano and I wave at him. He says hi and let him know that next time he drives through Highland/Redlands via Palm Springs he can pick Jen and I up. He got a big kick out of that.

    I went back over to the girls and MiG came over and gave all of us hugs and said hi to us. Then we claimed our seats, got water, drink and food if we wanted it and chatted while waiting for the first act and everything to be ready.

    MiG came over, before everything started and sat between Joy, Stacy, Jen and myself. We talked about the NYC move, what exactly he will be singing with Lovehammers in Chicago, and just had a really nice chat. He made it clear that he will still be coming back to California to do concerts when he could and that he was not saying goodbye. After he left I went with Jen and we raided the free MiG stuff that was there. So I finally got the sampler cd and a Got MiG shirt along with his promotional card. I picked up a few extras for certain people and will grab some more at Whiskey A Go Go if anyone else wants them.

    There were many talented, and I mean sickly talented, artists that played at the concert last night. The one, other than MiG, that I am going to mention is Shawn Hlookoff. His voice is off the charts and when the electricity went out during his first song the keyboard, he grabbed his guitar and moved around the audience every so often singing his songs until the sound was fixed. His voice is just spectacular…beyond spectacular.

    MiG did have a little banter. He did comment that if the power went out with him that we would all be singing Kumbayah together as he was unable to play the guitar. His New Year’s Resolution was to learn to play the guitar, but he has only picked it up once. His set was vintage MiG. Jen was video taping right beside me and we just kept grinning at each other cheesetastically and silently squeeing to ourselves.

    There was another guy who came up shortly after MiG, maybe right after, my memory is foggy, and who was simply brilliant, along with being crass and irreverent. I really enjoyed his set actually as it was very raw and didn’t hide anything. I will have to look for his name, as it isn’t on the program.

    So Jen and I decide we are going to make are way out and while she is the restroom I got MiG to sign a cd for a friend of mine and I asked him why Simone was in Palm Springs…just general chit chat. I did finally get to let him know that I was actually from England and that I was in UK for college when he was in WWRY, but I didn’t know who he was at the time, otherwise I would have come to see him. He asked me what had happened to my accent and I told him about moving every four years. I also got another picture with him. My hair looks…well….yeah…Whiskey a Go Go will be a redo picture. LOL. While I was chatting with him they asked him if he would do a couple more songs. So obviously we stayed.

    It was great to hear Ordinary Man. I took a really awesome shot during that song. Just of his hands on the piano and chest porn. LOL. After MiG was done we chatted with him a little more and he let us know that we were all going to be boogying at Whiskey a Go Go…he did also mention stage diving --- I hope sarcastically. LOL.

    Jluvs, I love the review and the photos! How wonderful, and it sounds like you had so much fun! The concert was in someone's yard? How did that get organized? I'd love to see an intimate show like that. Anyhow, thanks again for sharing!

    Lois - the group called the Koffee House puts on shows that support local and emerging singer/song writers. From what I understand the concept is to basically introduce singers to promotional people in the industry as well as their fans.

    For example, one of the other people last night, Shari Short is the person who wrote Hannah Montanas number one song and she has her own group. One of the other artists wrote one of the tracks from Kimberley Locke's first cd. It was a really awesome event.

    Shawn Hlookoff, the first guy in the pictures, is a new up and coming artist and doing lots of gigs around LA this week and the power went out in his set, he just picked his guitar and kept singing, with acoustic backup, and worked his way around the audience.

    I do have something for you that MiG signed, so drop me a PM.

    Whisky a Go Go Concert - Farewell LA Concert

    Where to begin? Well I guess the beginning is a good enough place to start. So I go over to pick up Jen a little early…cause for some reason I couldn’t sit in my house anymore. Not because a drive to LA is “fun” in any way, but because of my amazing ability to get lost or run into 10 car piles ups on the freeway an extra 15 mins can only help. However, I think Jen will agree with me, that we had the smoothest drive into LA ever. The 101 even liked us, and those you that have ever driven out here know that is about as rare as snow in LA. We found the parking easily, no one honked their horn at us, and were in line at 7:15pm.

    This is where it is debatable whether it is good I have a censor on what I say. LOL. Simone comes walking by and I say “Simone” and wave. I have only talked to Simone once and that was at the Roxy Gig. Actually it was more like screaming and we gave up after a few tries after not being able to hear each other even though we were thisclose. This time I actually got to talk to her in normal voice and hopefully came off as a somewhat normal person who carries around a MiG purse. She was very, very sweet.

    So we get inside, before the show mind you, after listening to the end of sound check outside, and it was really cute to get to see MiG interact with some of his younger fans. Danielle, who is an amazing singer, came over to us and said hi to the tables of MiG girls. She was just adorable and while we were getting kicked outside MiG saw me and I got a “Hey You” and lovely hug on the way out.

    Back in we come for the concert and let me tell you the place was packed. It was great to see that size of a crowd. I would like to throw in a hi to the mother and daughter who went to lots of the Rockstar tapings, before MiG went on I finally got to chat with them and find out their names. Adorable mother and daughter, but I can’t remember how to spell their names this morning. There was one girl that was front and center for her first ever MiG Gig. It was fun to get to see her reaction to all things MiG and it looked like she had a blast.

    Before the show started someone, hey there were a lot of us around, let me know that House Band leader Paul M. (so I don’t slaughter the spelling of his last name, was there and I turned around and went to chat with him. Cliff Notes version of the first time I met Paul: Lovehammers/INXS concert in Vegas. I had floor seats and one the times he came back in I pulled on his shirt and let him know that I had been to most of tapings and that I thought he was super talented. He was very nice to me. Chatted for a bit and went back to his seat with his wife, I believe. Tonight he was with the same person; hence why I assume wife and we talked for a while, because we could hear each other this time and has was trying to convince me to come see Marty in Monterey. Sadly I checked the day and I can’t go. But it was great to chat with him for real this time.

    So on to the show, yes, I am covering everything tonight, LOL.

    The Set List (though I might have mixed up the order, other than the last song, and I am guessing the name of the new song)

    One Big Sky

    One Sunset at a Time

    Blown Away

    She Loved

    Nothing You Do

    Totally New Song --- On My Way (?)

    Do or Die

    All Right Now

    Could it Be

    Baby I Love Your Way

    He changed the lyrics BILYW to through in lots of references to LA. For those of you that remember the Beef Gig and the moment my camera malfunctioned when he did the whole winking and etcetera thing to me. I had another moment last night. I told MiG at the Koffee House Gig that my camera had malfunctioned and I never got the moment on camera and he said that was probably just was well as he couldn’t remember half the stuff he did there. He must have remembered something as he did something similar last night to me, and of course I had just taken a picture so my camera came back after it was all done. Jen digged me in the ribs though and I actually got to see it this, we all started giggling, I almost dropped my camera and I am sure I turned a whole other shade of red. It got a few WTF looks from people that didn’t know what was going on, but I loved it, and it meant a lot to me that he did that again.

    Hearing Do Or Dive live again was great, as that was the only Rockstar taping that I was regulated to the balcony for. So I loved seeing it up close. Loved the new song. Heck, there was nothing that I didn’t love. I had fun chatting with all the girls and making some new friends last night and the dinner afterwards was great in so many ways.

    A concert that I will never forget, not just because of MiG but because of the people that I got to enjoy the concert with and the atmosphere there.
