I had the awesome opportunity to listen to K’naan last night. He had a live, acoustic performance at the Apple Store in San Francisco. I luckily got through 4th/Market early enough as there was a line forming from the entrance.
It was my first time seeing a music performance in an Apple Store as I usually just go in-and-out to check on stuff. I’m glad that I attended as it was also the first time seeing K’naan live. It was awesome. The auditorium wasn’t too big, so it was an intimate setting. The acoustics in the room was great and crisp. Not to mention, the experience and stories shared by K’naan felt like it was a VH1 Storytellers session. It was a very humbling and enlightening experience indeed.
The sessions are all about great music and the venue strips this to its essense. We aren’t picky about genre and will happily open the cab door to anyone who blows us away…
I heard about it through Tony Hawk’s tweet early this morning. They feature artists such as: Death Cab for Cutie, My Morning Jacket, Fleet Foxes, The Cool Kids, Lykke Li, and many more great musicians.
Did you see that fight this past Saturday night? That was some crazy carnage coming from a dude who smiles right before he’s about to enter the ring and fight someone who is bad ass at the weight they’re fighting in. I’m talking about the Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao vs. Ricky “Hitman” Hatton fight. I think it was dubbed “The Battle of East and West”. Don’t know if that’s important or not, but these two are great fighters to each in their own right.
Anyways, I watched the fight at a friend’s Bachelor’s Party down in SoCal. I was nervous right to the first punch. Then Pacman started setting up his combos. Next thing you know, he chalks up two knock-downs in the first round.
“WTF?!?! I didn’t know it was going to be this damn exciting, and fast”. I said to myself. So I quickly grabbed my point-and-shoot camera, sneaked it in on a place below the TV, and set it on to record video… hoping to get a candid of everyone’s reaction to the rest of the fight.
Lo and behold—it turned out to be a rewarding, stupendous and hilarious idea. They totally were busy celebrating the first round, and didn’t notice it at all. Funny-ass-hell.
