The Red Hot Chili Peppers Are Stalking Us

5 years ago, Anthony Kiedis, the singer of the Red Hot Chili Peppers came to 2 of our shows. 1 at the now shuttered Safari Sam's. And another at our regular haunt O'Brien's Pub on Main St.

He was a nice enough fellow and told my girlfriend at the time that we were his second favorite band in LA. (He also proceeded to romantically pursue her for about a year.) Incidentally, his favorite group in LA was a rock band of 12 year old kids whose name escapes me right now.

In September 2010, the PCB played at the Henry Miller Library in Big Sur.
In July 2011, the RHCP played at the Henry Miller Library in Big Sur.
The Henry Miller Library is a very small venue that can only hold 300-400 people. The Chili Peppers regularly sell out arenas.

On July 3, 2011 the PCB played on the balcony of our friend's house right on the Venice boardwalk.
On July 30, 2011 the RHCP filmed a video and played a few tunes on the roof of a house right on the Venice boardwalk about 10 houses down from where we played.

Here is some video of our show on the boardwalk...

Help! The Red Hot Chili Peppers are stalking us!

That Kiedis character is kind of scary. I'd hire some security if I was you. Incidentally, I've recently quit my job so I can work and am available for a very reasonable price.....
