Altogether this adds up to the positive. Holy crap the Hives are a great live band. Holy CRAP. Haven't had so much fun at a show in ages. They did a Saints song which made me feel happy in my punk place. Huge thanks to the Cirivello gals for the late-notice invite. Also especially to redmaenad for driving and for introducing me to an incredibly good Japanese restaurant.
Had a great day with zebulon_y at the L.A. auto show. More about that later if I get my car geek on.
