Today is the official Brian Foss Born Day. I love-love-love his Sonic Reducer show, every Saturday night on KEXP. I am also missing the Funhouse, which he used to book. I was trying to find a Ty Segall photo, because he is playing tonight with the Night Beats at Neumos, and I stumbled across this photo.
It's Segall "helping" a ciggie-smoking Petey from Thee Oh Sees play his guitar. Oh Sees played on the basketball court, on the ground, with The People. Segall jumped in, and joined the band for a couple songs.
I miss moments like this—intimacy that most other small clubs have yet to match. SNIFF.
