Girls 12/06/11 Music Box at Fonda - Hollywood, CA Words/Photos by Reverend Justito Before we begin, we must give a major shout out to both Girls and Vacation Vinyl in Silver Lake, CA. I don’t know who had the idea to give away a free ticket to the Girls show with the purchase of Father, Son, Holy Ghost on vinyl, but I am sure glad they did. We here at Concert Confessions truly can’t express just how wonderful the folks at Vacation Vinyl are. They ... Read More

Pixies 11/19/11 Music Box @ Fonda - Hollywood, CA Words/Photos by Reverend Justito Ever since the Pixies reunited back in 2004 I have been trying to catch them live. Typically one of three things happen that prevent me from seeing the band. If I am not out of town, I already have tickets for another show and if I happen to have a ticket for the Pixies show (10/23/04 to be exact) then my car breaks down and I never actually make it to the ...

Blitzen Trapper 11/17/11 Music Box at Fonda - Hollywood, CA Words/Photos by Reverend Justito On the wild ride that is life as an amateur rock journalist, Blitzen Trapper has served as my training wheels for much of the journey. A long time ago (a little over three years to be exact) a major network in the Viacom family sent me to Gibson Amphitheater in Universal City, CA to shoot the band. While I had taken plenty of photos at shows, I had never been sent ... Read More

 St. Vincent 10/18/11 Music Box at Fonda - Hollywood, CA Words/Photos by Reverend Justito It was towards the end of the set when someone in the crowd screamed “You are a really good guitar player.” I was thinking the exact same thing, yet was not drunk enough to scream it out at Annie Erin Clark, better known as St. Vincent. To be honest, I am not even sure how I ended up at the Music Box in Hollywood for a sold out performance by St. ... Read More

Death From Above 1979 (w/ Funeral Party) 09/04/11 Music Box at Fonda - Hollywood, CA Words/Photos by Reverend Justito Just my luck, I was introduced to Death From Above 1979 right before they decided to call it quits. For years I heard epic tales of their live shows and watched hours of footage on the internet. In my personal opinion the reunion of Death From Above 1979 is the most important musical reunion of 2011. When the band announced a post FYF Fest show at ... Read More

Trey Anastasio Band 03/04/11 Music Box @ Fonda - Hollywood, CA Words/Photos by Reverend Justito The only thing more shocking then a rare appearance from Trey Anastasio on the West Coast is where Anastasio decided to play on the West Coast.

Nine Girls For One Guy – My Evening With Peaches

Peaches 06/06/09 Music Box @ Fonda - Hollywood, CA Words/Photos/Videos By Justin Saturday Night on Hollywood Blvd. The smell of hobos, trash, bad perfume and bacon wrapped hot dogs. Sitting soaked in sweat, twittering about some random star upon the blvd, I just had to take a few moments to contemplate what had just happened. Wow, did that really all go down? Did I really consume that many chemicals? Did I really show up here with five beautiful women on my arm, only to be ... Read More

NOFX w/ Youth Brigade 02/04/09 Music Box @ Fonda - Hollywood, CA Words/Photos by Reverend Justito A long long time ago, I was a student in Mrs. Machado’s kindergarten class. I played with blocks, learned my letters and came down with head lice on three separate occasions. It was during this time that three men (Fat Mike, Smelly and Eric Melvin) were forming a crappy little punk rock band. 25 years later, I no longer have head lice, or play with blocks. I may have ...
