A Trainwreck with Kyle Gass hootenanny in San Diego

It was a rainy Monday night in San Diego on March 28th — the kind that scares SoCalians into little balls on the couch with sweatpants and Thai food. Yet, before this epic storm, I had heard that one half of the majestic comedic rock band, Tenacious D, was to be performing in my town and, by God, I had to be there.

‘Anyone Can Rock’: Jack Black and Kyle Gass Reflect on 20 Years of ‘Tenacious D’

It’s a perfect rock & roll story, really, the kind always worth re-telling — the one about the night Jack Black and Kyle Gass officially arrived as Tenacious D. It was their first show ever, at a Los Angeles coffee shop called Highland Grounds, and in the crowd, eyeing these future legends, was an old master himself. Imagine the Rolling Stones debuting in front of Muddy Waters. Or the first time Whitney Houston sang for Aretha Franklin. That was Tenacious D, playing their debut concert for a crowd that included one Harry Shearer, also known as Derek Smalls of Spinal Tap.
