Pinhead Gunpowder played their first show in seven years last night at La Conga Bar and Grill in San Pedro, CA. Longtime fan and visitor of GDA, DJ Rossstar, went to the show and posted a recap on the forum:
I got the chance to talk to Jason and Bill and even Billie Joe for a few minutes. He was just hanging in the crowd during the opening act. The show much have had only 250 people there and it was in a tiny room.
All I can say is that it was the greatest show I have ever seen in my life. It was worth waiting 14 years!

We will be posting photos up in the Picture Vault. Keep checking back for more.

For anyone else who attended the show, or will be attending the other shows coming up, please contact us with pictures and some details about the experience or stop by the forum and share it.

That amazing photo on the right was taken by "Shanty" Cheryl on Flickr. She says more pics will be coming, so keep an eye out for them.
