This metal event took place at the legendary Hollywood Palladium in Hollywood, California where hundreds of now famous bands have left their mark. Due to my work schedule and not enough time to get there, I missed The Black Dahlia Murder but I made it in time for All That Remains and ... Read More

Jimmy Kimmel Live Concert Stage - Hollywood, CA
Words/Photos by Reverend Justito
I am pretty sure it was 8th grade when I discovered Soundgarden and early 9th grade when I picked up Badmotorfinger. Sure Superunknown was solid but nothing ever hit me as hard as the songs on the 1992 classic.
Sadly I never had a chance to see Soundgarden the first time around. I was either too young to see shows or unable to get to a far off destination like Oakland to ... Read More

This was my first time seeing the American heavy metal band, Lamb of god. This was their 3rd show since the one month incarceration in the Czech Republic of singer, Randy Blythe. The show took place at the world-famous Hollywood Palladium on the sunset strip in Hollywood, California.
The opening bands were Sylosis, Hatebreed, and In Flames. Sylosis put on a good show to get the crowd warmed up, once Hatebreed hit the stage the crowd started going wild with mosh pits. In ... Read More

Zac Brown Band Pay Jimmy Kimmel Live A Visit
When we started Concert Confessions the goal was to have a site that featured all types of music. So far we have done a pretty good job of that but the one area where we are lacking is country music. We could make jokes about country fans or discuss how much country music in the year 2012 sucks but that wouldn’t be very nice. So instead we will just share with you one of ... Read More

The Offspring Pay Jimmy Kimmel A Visit
This is an experiment. I want to see if anyone actually cares about The Offspring in 2012. I assume they have a few loyal fans from way back when, but who are we kidding this band has not had a decent song since Clinton was president (and even those songs have not withheld the test of time). So yeah here is Off Key Dexter, Noodles and some other twats stinking up the Jimmy Kimmel Live outdoor ... Read More

Dead Sara Rock 'Weatherman' For Jimmy Kimmel Live
Remember last fall when our teen sensation Jakob confessed about a pretty sweet act who just so happened to open for Bush? Then a few days later ground-breaking websites started posting about this four piece? Now the secret is out, Dead Sara kick all kinds of ass. The group has now made it to late night television as they rocked Jimmy Kimmel Live a few hours ago. Check out their performance of Weatherman courtesy of ... Read More

fun. Pay Jimmy Kimmel Live A Visit
The thing that rubs me the wrong way about fun. is not their name as much as how they spell their name. I get that we are out of band names and that is why we have bands like Girls and fun. Sure it sucks to do a Google search for them, but it’s not as if they can call themselves Pearl Jam. What throws me off is the style is basically a rip off of ... Read More

Lisa Marie Presley Brings 'Over Me' to Jimmy Kimmel Live
Lisa Marie Presley performed last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live. We are going to rip off Tosh.0 and put 30 seconds on the clock:
Tom Petty called he wants the outfits from the Don’t Come Around Here No More video back.
Not even Jack White can make this listenable.
This went way better than her audition for Dancing With The Stars.
When does she start singing?
Yeah these were all rather lame but this performance is so bad ... Read More

Silversun Pickups Serve Up 'Bloody Mary' For Jimmy Kimmel
As yes there I was last night getting into bed after watching my beloved San Francisco Giants defeat the dreaded Los Angeles Dodgers out at Chavez Latrine. The television was already on and there was Johnny Depp plugging the new Warner Bros. Pictures smash hit Dark Shadows. I enjoyed his brief talk with Jimmy Kimmel Live host Jimmy Kimmel about him and Hunter S. Thompson sabotaging Don Johnson. Then I fell asleep before Silversun ... Read More

Today, we make my mother happy by sharing with you the footage of another old timer. Roger Daltrey stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live last night to not only have a chat with the former Man Show host, but to play a song for him as well. The jet lagged rocker with the ... Read More

Bud Lite Concert Stage at Jimmy Kimmel Live - Hollywood, CA
Words/Photos by Reverend Justitio
There is a line from the Kasabian song “Days Are Forgotten” that has been running through my head since I awoke this morning. Perhaps this line is here because I heard the band sound check the song no less than six times yesterday; perhaps it is there because of a deeper meaning? Hell, it is possible it is there for both reasons. The line is as follows:
“Cos I’m ... Read More

The Fonda Theatre - Hollywood, CA

Standing along the fence that separates a parking lot from Hollywood Blvd I watched as a tour bus slowly backed up and parked next to an 18 wheeler. With doors for The Fonda Theater not open for another two hours I felt like a teenager again as I watched as each member of the band exited the bus and entered the venue. In a day and age where I ...

Travis Barker Joins Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem for Jimmy Kimmel Live
It’s hard to argue that there is no brighter spot on late night talk shows for live music than Jimmy Kimmel Live. Last night (03/21/12) the former Man Show host once again set the bar high with a smoking performance from Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem with special guest Travis Barker. Promoting the home video release of The Muppets, Dr. Teeth and company went to town on the ... Read More

The Joy Formidable Rock Jimmy Kimmel Live
There I was in bed again last night (shocking I know). MLB Network once again was blacked out so I found myself watching my late night back up Jimmy Kimmel Live. Having enjoyed Jonah Hill promoting 21 Jump Street the night before (only to fall asleep before The Crystal Method rocked with Martha Reeves), it was Tatum Channing’s turn to promote the upcoming cinematic extravaganza. I fell asleep around the second guest whose name I don't ... Read More

The Crystal Method Team Up With Martha Reeves For Jimmy Kimmel Live
Typically I watch MLB Network as I fall asleep. But with a local teams game being featured the channel was blacked out so instead I decided to watch Jimmy Kimmel Live. While I would later ponder just how drunk Jonah Hill was, the thing that stuck with me was Kimmel sharing a story about ½ of the shows musical guest – The Crystal Method. As it turns out, Ken Jordan fired ... Read More
