So as some of you may know I grew up in Malibu, CA. It's a small coastal city located west of Los Angeles. On Monday evening we caught fire. We have a long history of fires here, as well as mudslides, and viscious El Ninos.
The fire started around 5 pm when we were all rehearsing in Venice, which is maybe 10-15 miles away. We could see the flames from Venice! I heard these were walls of fire 200 feet tall. Epic flames. The area that was burning was about 300-500 yards away from my parent's home. A little scary, but not as much as some would think. I'm more frightened by elevators, airplanes, and ocean currents than fires or mudslides. But the fire made headlines; we read about it on CNN this morning.
I went to see my friend Atom's band called We Are Lions tonight at the Troubador which was F.U.N. They had a great show, and Matt the drummer was like Passion Of Christ on the drums. Look up pics online to see what I mean. Their myspace is www.myspace.com/wearelions
Looking forward to tomorrow night's show. We'll let you know how it goes.
