Kimmel in austin

Posted by xneverwherex on March 11, 2014


Jimmy Kimmel was here at the long center last night for his first live taping. Special guests were Snoop Dogg and Seth Rogen with White Denim from Austin performing.

Thanks to cottonelle we got access to the VIP party which had free drinks and free food courtesy of subway. The taping seemed to go on forever w the first 40mins or so just random clips of jimmy and prior guests. By the time Jimmy got started it was nearly 6pm. If you plan on seeing him, be sure to allow for additional time.

While I was looking forward to seeing Seth rogen, Snoop stole the show. He talked about the mass amounts of homegrown pot in Austin and how he’s offered it all the time. Also talked about his new festival in Seattle and Colorado that will be held on 4/20. He was the epitome of cool.

Seth talked about his new movie Neighbors which looks to have some funny moments.  He and Jimmy did a spoof on true detective season 2. Went on for a bit too long.

Musical guests were White Denim. They were good with a bluesy rock indie pop sound. They played about 3-4 songs but sadly lots of people were already leaving as they played. Very enjoyable with some catchy songs. Would defending recommend checking them out.
