Drove down U.S. Route 101 (listening to a trance mix of Adele, much better than the original!) to Los Angeles and met up with Jacob’s sister, Jessica Ciocci, the famous performance artist/comedienne/writer/spiritual warrioress. We did a “triple bounce”: Juice (I got extra ginger), coffee, and froyo. Why not? It was froyo Friday.
Jessica gave me a copy of her new book, a lot of early 2011 memories in there.
Went to Dem Passwords and Riff Raff was sound checking with Simon Rex…okay. Simon Rex played Jeff on the first season of my favorite show ever What I Like About You. OMG.
Loaded in and “the space” was filled with Matt Barton’s beautiful psychedelic, nature-esque art. I wish he had been at the show shredding on a half pipe, laughing and smiling in a baseball cap. Sebastian was being a total gentleman as usual, bless this guy BIG TIME.
Riff Raff’s performance was such a trip. I think someone got video of it, idk haha. I ate so much rice. Loved that Kyle Mabson was dropping Austin Powers “Yeah Baby” and Tim Allen grunts in between RR’s songs. I think Jacob Ciocci thought this song was about him:
A celebrity guest showed up at the end of the night. I don’t want to give it away but his first name begins with L and his last name ends with B. He had just bought a new car and he parallel parked it behind ours, uh…as Roba would say “AWKWARD.” Anyways, it was a trip to see him introduced to Jacob and hear him say “Respect to the video art”. ☺
Here is the poster that Jacob Ciocci made for the show, “like whoa.”
After the show we drove to Kyle Mabson’s mom’s house and I slept on an amazing #airmattress.
