feelnumb.com exclusive: Iggy Pop & Josh Homme “Post Pop Depression” Tour Los Angeles Warm-Up Gig

March 9, 2016 –  I had the privilege of attending the Iggy Pop & Josh Homme “Post Pop Depression Tour” warm-up show at a small club in downtown Los Angeles, California called The Teragram Ballroom.

The surprise show was announced the day before the gig and tickets to the 500 capacity club sold out in minutes.  The “Post Pop Depression Tour” all-star band features Iggy Pop (The Stooges), Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age), Troy Van Leeuwen (QOTSA) and Matt Helders (Arctic Monkeys).

I took some great exclusive feelnumb.com photos and videos.

Before playing “China Girl” a song he co-wrote with David Bowie and that they both separately recorded, he proclaimed:

“This is a song, I haven’t sung in a fucking long time”

No matter how many times I am in this position, getting this close to a legend still gives me chills.

They closed the night off with this Iggy Pop classic “Success” off of the “Lust For Life” album written by David Bowie.  Pop introduced the finale by saying:

“Could I interest you in a little Success?”
