My playlist of the week – Week 1- March 25, 2012 (…plus informal review of Rancid show in SF)

I can get stuck, almost obsessed with, with about 5 to 10 songs at a time for a week or so. I am introduced to, or I re-connect with, music I absolutely love so on many levels, and post them everywhere so I can talk about them. I don’t know why I never thought of posting stuff like that here where I can talk about them all I want.

… Of course just posting music videos from YouTube only represents the music artists top singles instead of what I’m actually listening to. I don’t know what else to use. Any suggestions?

20 YEARS OF RANCID!!! 

Rancid – Time Bomb,     Rancid – Ruby Soho,    Rancid – If I Fall Back Down Again,   Rancid “Last One to Die”
I was definitely into Rancid this week! My husband, David, and I went to their 20th anniversary concert in San Francisco at The Warfield! This year is actually our 20th anniversary also and we have been fans from the beginning back when we lived in Berkeley….. but somehow they managed to make it to my, “How in the hell have I never seen them live?” list. No more! The night was nostalgic (David is dealing with vertigo so no moshing), fun (easter eggs for me), and incredible to watch.
Transplants (side project for Rancid singer, Tim Armstrong, long-time friend/crew Skinhead Rob, and Blink 182’s Travis Barker) are one of my favorite bands but since I’ve never seen them live, I was hoping for an appearance by Skinhead Rob tonight. 🙂 It was short (just his part in Red Hot Moon & no Transplants song) but he killed it, making it a highlight of the night for me. Really looking forward to the new album and HOPEFULLY a tour. Much more on Transplants (and Travis Barker’s music and album) later.
So, 20 years later and after that show, I’m still crushing on Tim Armstrong. …And with that shallow and not related to music statement, I’m sure I’ve just dropped my legitimacy down a peg or two, and blowing my position on why I can feel dismissed as a music fan being female. All in the very first post of my new topic too. Oh well.

It was also really cool seeing Branden Steineckert playing drums live again. He has been drumming with Rancid since 2006 but before that he was in another one of my all-time favorite bands, The Used before they… oddly… kicked him out. I have only seen him play live with The Used and that was a while ago.
Speaking of The Used, I listen to their first two albums A LOT regardless what week it is, The Used “Taste of Ink”, The Used “Bury Myself Alive” , The Used “I Caught Fire”. When we lived in Ukiah, California “The Taste of Ink” was my anthem! (Sorry AFI, but you had just left and we hated it there). In fact, I was pretty sure the song had to be written about living in  Ukiah too, hahaha, of course, you know, until I found out they were from Utah and not Ukiah (lol). Anyway, this favorite makes me happy because I relate to the lyrics and feel I escaped too.
