Deftones in DC.

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......

  1. Wow....time flies. Needless to say I was totally blown away seeing the Deftones for the first time. If you could have seen the expression on my face during their performance..... priceless :-)
