Another full weekend, another weekend that felt way too short. The first thing we did? We hit up the weekend-long AKC/Eukanuba National Championship Dog Show at the Long Beach Convention Center. Photographer Keith May captured some amazing shots of the entire thing, including this poor dude up there. Aw. See the full slideshow here!
After the jump: Metallica visits the Honda Center in Anaheim, old school punk band Fear and KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas. Woo!
