good morning! i’m feeling much better than last night (the whole side of my face was hurting from the dental work i had done) and it’s friday! anyways this past weekend after seeing robyn play at the troubadour – i headed over to ritual which is fairly close to my apartment – but i had never been there before (it used to be white lotus) the ‘supperclub’ was one of the stops on ashlee simpson‘s mini club tour – she’s promoting her upcoming new album bittersweet world scheduled for release on april 15th – the first single being outta my head (ay ya ya) (watch the video and purchase on itunes) which i must admit i’ve totally fallen in love with – it’s so catchy (even though it does feel slightly like a gwen stefani rip off…) the scene over there was a complete 180 from robyn’s totally queer scene – i was probably one of the only gay people at ritual – plus i think most everyone just happened to be at the club – i was asking a few girls when ms. simpson was supposed to hit the stage – they didn’t even know she was due to play!



ashlee was to come on at midnight but she didn’t show up until around 1am – with two guitarists and DJ at her side – she played about five songs including l.o.v.e and a few new tracks – fortunately there was no lip syncing involved! i know a lot of people aren’t fans of ashlee but i must say i thought she did an excellent job – she was dancing and singing her little heart out – and the stage was fairly small so i managed to get pretty close and snap a few pictures along with a bit of video which you’ll find posted below – plus check out the last picture where you can see ashlee’s hottie boyfriend pete wentz – i didn’t see him that night but when i was going through the pics i spotted him!



i probably didn’t notice him because i was a bit of a drunk wreck – i even tripped and fell flat on the floor when i headed to the restroom! (how embarassing!) yet i did manage to have a lot of fun – everyone was friendly – and i ended up dancing with a few girls who were surrounding me (hi carly!) many thanks to jamie for hooking a blog up – i had a blast! popbytes over & out for now…xxoo! (also check out a new interview w/ ashlee over on buzznet)
