    Exclamation What to Wear to a LOUD Rock Show

    I'm going to Hollywood this Saturday night to see 2 of my favorite local bands--the Bleeding Deacons (as heard on the Howard Stern Show) and the Atomic Punks (a great David Lee Roth era Van Halen tribute band)--perform at the world famous Whiskey a Go Go. I'd like your opinions on which frag to wear to the show.

    The Whiskey is a small, intimate venue on the Sunset Strip. I've pretty much narrowed it down to 3 choices from my wardrobe, any of which I think would work in the hot, crowded, loud atmosphere. I was kinda leaning towards the Kouros, but I love the Hermes as well...

    Your thoughts and opinions (and votes), please.

    What, no KISS for Him?

    My vote: TdH. Performs quite nicely in sweaty hot spaces - and the drydown smells like marijuana on me (no kidding).

    YSL Haute Concentrate (Black Cap) - especially if it's a hot and humid night.

    I vote for Kouros F; the sweaty animalic but fresh sillage will stand out in the crowd of pot smokers.

    I'm with TNMA and your original thought, Dave. Kouros F for absolute certain. Put that stuff on and you'll feel great tipping back every glass.

    I'm no expert, but I say wear what fits the environment. The SMW is nice, but that to me is a scent I would wear when going to see a smokin' little jazz trio in a cozy nightspot. A great, mellow scent for enjoying the scene and interacting with all those within. Terre d'Hermes is nice, but maybe a little "rich" (read: complex) for the music and souls that will be surrounding you. My pick would be the Kouros F. You'll get the freshness that keeps the scent from being too heavy on you while the animalic vibe will blend in with the attitude of the room. And, if Kouros F. is as woodsy as the original, the aura of your waftocity (is that a word.....?) will envelop those around you.

    FTR: I remember wearing Kingdom to a couple loud rock shows. Definitely helped set the tone for the evening!

    Have a great time!!!

    From your wardrobe, my choice for the Whiskey would be Bulgari Black. Others to consider: Johnathan Varvatos and M7.

    Very effective ear protection.


    Seriously, you will not want tinitus in old age.

    As for fragrances, M7 would be good.

    Azzaro Pour Homme

    My black concert t-shirts were saturated with it when I was a kid.

    I wouldn't say TdH simply because it smells a little too refined for such a venue. I would go with one of the other 2.

    Thanks for the suggestions and the votes, everybody! Looks like TdH and KF are the front runners, separated by only one vote.

    LOL! That'd be very appropriate tomorrow night, I'm sure!

    Thumbs up Re: What to Wear to a LOUD Rock Show

    Great show, ended at 2 a.m. I was in the second row, and boy was it LOUD!!! Saw 5 kick-ass bands that night and had a great time!

    Td'H worked perfectly in that setting. I smelled fantastic all night. In fact, I can still smell it on me right now!!
