    Not even fully realizing that LAist was about to pull off a beautiful double play of live music tag-team magic:

    First Joey Maloney presented THE BEST photo essay from in front of the front row at the Rage Against the Machine / Cypress Hill / Wu Tang / Public Enemy concert than any other website, newspaper, magazine around. And please, correct me if I’m wrong. Not only did he give us great pictures, but amazing descriptions of what it was like WHEN THE POLICE THREW TEARGAS AT THE CROWD
    Rock The Bells @ Hyundai Pavilion, 8/11/07

    Which was perfectly followed up by Tim the Hammer’s long, detailed review of the show from the heart of the action, including VIDEO OF THE KIDS STARTING FIRES AND JUMPING OVER THEM

    Dork on York on York

    i should get a bumpersticker that says
