Hey everyone today is the last day to listen to the entire The Knife album on KCRW.
I was online earlier today when a preview for No Doubt’s tour caught me attention. Apparently the group used Citizens Business Bank arena recently to prepare for their tour.
“Gwen Stefani may be a pop superstar, hit songwriter, fashion maven and role model for millions of girls and young women, but on a brutally hot afternoon recently, on a loading dock outside a largely empty sports arena in Ontario, California, she was just a mom, trying to keep her 3-year-old son entertained while she took on an impromptu decorating project.
“I don’t have time to do this, but you know me — once I get obsessed with something,” Stefani said while splattering globs of sky blue, neon orange and electric pink paint across three large squares of white fabric. She and a couple friends were creating tapestries to hang in the backstage dressing rooms during the first full-scale concert tour in seven years by No Doubt, the once-scrappy ska-rock group that emerged from Anaheim to become one of the biggest-selling pop music acts of the 1990s and early 2000s.
…..Inside the new Citizens Business Bank Arena a short time later, Stefani, bassist Tony Kanal, guitarist Tom Dumont and drummer Adrian Young were showing pretty much the same childlike exuberance and energy as they bounced around the gleaming white retro-futuristic stage set they were trying out for the first time before the tour kickoff Saturday in Las Vegas.”

“Alphabet Pony” before I had to leave for The Cure.
