Avenged Sevenfold and such–8/4/10

6 Aug

I was expecting a quiet night in Downtown Fullerton on Wednesday when some girls that my friend met at Back Alley Bar and Grill said that Avenged Sevenfold were at the Slidebar. Really? Obviously when a big band like Avenged Sevenfold comes into Fullerton, one has to do the right thing…check out what the fuss was about it. So me and my friends got there and it turns out, Avenged Sevenfold were celebrating their latest album, Nightmare, getting the number one spot on the Billboard 200. Congrats to M. Shadows, his gang, and the dozens of ladies who came to show up as it was hard for me to get some photos of the band because the ladies took control of the stage! Here’s some that I’ve managed to get:

DTF Nights–7/23/2010

25 Jul

I went out with some friends to Slidebar (a bar owned by the band Lit) because a friend of a friend is in this band called Stretford End. Unfortunately I came too late. However, I stayed around for a bit, talked to some of the members of Stretford End (they’re pretty cool guys once you get to know them) and saw the band ALEVELA. Pretty good stuff, but they should have stayed away from covering Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance.” Here’s how it went down:

Ladies enjoying Alevela.

Not long after Alevela played Lady Gaga’s cover, me and my friends left. My friend HATES anything Lady Gaga–no wonder we left before the set was finished! So we headed to Palapa Grill, met up with some old high school friends and downed some fishbowls.

Since I’ve brought my camera around, people have a fascinating attraction with it. Ladies are willing to have their pictures taken and guys want all the attention.

So here’s how it went down:

This was their first time to Downtown Fullerton. Welcome!

Waiting to cross the street!

More birthday action.

We got all these pedestrians to join in on the action!
