Tomorrow, I will be driving to Washington DC with a my friend Jason to see the Deftones at the Verizon Center. SOAD opens for the Deftones and I'm sure it will be a great show for both bands. This past Saturday, I had a Deftones pre-concert party at my house and invited my friend to come listen to White Pony and a few other records. I purchased White Pony at Vinyl Daze in Virginia Beach during Record Store Day this year. The LP was sealed and remained sealed until Saturday when I cracked that baby open and played it for the first time. I purchased the limited edition CD when it came out in 2000 and listen to it in my car or on my iPod. I love this LP, it sounded amazing on my vintage audio system, Marantz 6300 turntable, McIntosh tube amps and Vandersteen 2B speakers.
Check out my systems on Audiogon. I have since merged the systems into one awesome vintage system. Updated pics to follow on Blogger and Audiogon.

Last night, I had a little pre-concert party on my own and broke out a sealed copy of Diamond Eyes. I purchased this LP at Fantasy in Newport News a couple of years ago, and it was the first time I had heard any of the songs from that recording. I was surprised to see that it was a white vinyl LP, and needless to say I loved this LP and it sounded fantastic on my system. White Pony is definitely my fav but I do like Diamond Eyes too.
See ya after the show......
