I went to the Viper Room to support my friend’s band, Great White Buffalo. Unbeknownst to me, I would also be witnessing rock royalty shred the axe the same night. The Dirty Knobs? Heard of the them? Neither had I. How about the name Mike Campbell? Does that name ring a bell? No? Well it should.
Dream Club was the second band who opened for Mike Campbell’s The Dirty Knobs at The Viper Room on 3/14/15.
Great White Buffalo was the first two of two bands who opened for Mike Campbell’s The Dirty Knobs at The Viper Room.

But I wasn’t going to let the forecast ofContinue reading “REVIEW: Shaun White Presents AIR+STYLE | The Rose Bowl | 2/21/15-2/22/15”
