Blonde Redhead enchant a small private crowd at secret West Hollywood performance

It was a small private show at the offices of Flood magazine. I got there a bit early, way before they started allowing people in and watched the sound check of Blonde Redhead. They were deciding what songs to play as they also figured out which lights should go where. It was nice to watch the […]
