songs for the deaf - q.o.t.s.a.

To be completely honest, I haven't been listening to the actual album, rather the track "You Think I Ain't Worth A Dollar, But I Feel Like A Millionaire", which was featured in the GameCube game Tony Hawk's Underground. But I have to say, Songs For the Deaf is one kickass album.

One of my most vivid concert experiences will always be the QOTSA show this last Halloween at the Greek Theatre. Tomahawk and The Cramps (!) opened for them, and it was pouring rain outside. It never really pours in L.A., but it was really coming down. The Greek is, of course, an open-air venue, and so my brothers, James and Matt, and I were soaked to the bone by the time we staggered out towards the end of QOTSA's set (we couldn't make it all the way through), to the relative warmth and dryness in my brother's piece of crap Thunderbird.
