The Morning Benders, who hail from Berkeley, Ca, closed out their first tour of 2009 at The Troubadour on Saturday night. Opening up for The Submarines, the band was in high spirits, and ready to give the sold-out crowd a lasting dose of their boyish pop bravado.

SEPT. 10 | WEST HOLLYWOOD—Starting a few years ago, with Roger Waters being the spearhead by performing Dark Side of the Moon in its entirety, many artists from the past have brought their shining achievements back to the stage.

Black Mountain @ Troubadour, 2/05/08
Anticipation inside The Troubadour was buzzing. I, myself, had been waiting three years to see Black Mountain. All the friends I had brought with me were as ready as I was. The crowd swelled around us, as did the celebrity quotient. Drea De Matteo and Shooter Jennings were there. As was Chris Robinson, Rick Rubin, and the brothers Gallagher (Oasis). We were all grins as they took to stage playing “Stormy High”, the opening track off of their second album, Into the Future.
