Hey everyone!!!!

I just got back from the first Pinhead Gunpowder show in 7 years!
The gig was at a place called La Conga Bar and Grill in San Pedro. (near Long Beach, CA)

I got there at 7:30pm (doors were at 8pm) even though Pinhead Gunpowder weren't supposed to play until midnight.

I got the chance to talk to Jason and Bill and even Billie Joe for a few minutes. He was just hanging in the crowd during the opening act. The show much have had only 250 people there and it was in a tiny room. The stage was almost non-existent. It was like not even an inch off the ground so when Pinhead started I was basically as close as you can get without actually being in the band.

All I can say is that it was the greatest show I have ever seen in my life. It was worth waiting 14 years! I can't believe I get to see it a few more times in the next few days! Shout out to Brian from GD.net as well!

They played so many songs and I don't remember the order...so I will list them by album....

Jump Salty:
Future Daydream
Losers of the Year
Beastly Bit
MPLS Song

Carry The Banner:
Find My Place
Before The Accident
I Used To
Reach For The Bottle
Mahogany

Goodbye Ellston Avenue:
Life During Wartime
Backyard Flames
Swan Song
Train Station

Shoot The Moon:
Cabol Gal
Asheville
Kathleen

Compulsive Disclosure:
Buffalo
Landlords
New Blood

Bonus:
Three new songs that sounded like Goodbye Ellston Avenue era material!!!

Sounds absolutely amazing !! I'm so jealous. rolleyes.gif It would just be fantastic to see them perform at such close quarters.

p.s I hope this doesn't turn into a Billie's hair thread.

Yay! Secret gigs are always the best. Well done for going and glad you had an awesome time.

I'm pleased for Billie Joe and the guys that they can still get the opportunity to play tiny venues and just be in a small punk band...

....and I'm pleased for us fans that they still want to smile.gif

That sounds like the best gig ever!! I would have loved to go! sad.gif sad.gif They played loads of my favourite songs! Cabot Gal! Kathleen! Life During Wartime! I hate stuff now.

Haha I saw that picture earlier and when I saw Billie Joe, I thought "Oh, they must not have any photos yet, so they decided to use an old one" tongue.gif
