Whitney woo fans at El Rey, even inspire a prom proposal by some courageous kid

This past Thursday, Goldenvoice and FYF presented my most anticipated Coachella sideshow of the week. LA’s El Rey Theatre sold out for the very talented Whitney. The band’s debut record Light Upon The Lake off Secretly Canadian is practically perfection. With their casual melancholic tunes, founders Max Kakacek on guitar, and Julien Ehrlich on lead […]

Mastodon, Eagles of Death Metal and Russian Circles drop thunderous performances at Hollywood Palladium

A sold out house celebrated 4/20 with Russian Circles and Eagles of Death Metal supporting Mastodon at the Hollywood Palladium. Opening the solidly metal night, was instrumental heavy weights Russian Circles.

Glass Animals turn the Fox Theater Pomona into a funk zone

Turning the Fox Theatre Pomona into a certifiable funk zone, Glass Animals made their Coachella side-show stop in between the two-weekend festival and they showed little to no signs of fatigue.

Empire of the Sun descends upon its loyal subjects at the Shrine Expo Hall

The first thing you saw of Luke Steele as he rose to the platform that was erected atop the stage within the Shrine Expo Hall was his headpiece–a brilliantly gleaming silver crown with metal points curved upwards. Adorned in his characteristic robes with shoulder pads that resembled squid-like tentacles, Emperor Steele walked down the steps toward […]

DJ Shadow delivers an “expanded and more in depth version” of his Coachella set at Fonda Theatre

For me, the best part about Coachella are all the Goldenvoice booked Coachella sideshows. This last Tuesday, the legendary Josh Davis aka DJ Shadow performed at the Fonda Theatre. I’ve been a massive DJ Shadow fan for the last 20+ years. I’ve seen Shadow perform countless times over the years, and he never ceases to amaze […]

Twin Peaks and Hinds bring double the pleasure, double the fun to Regent LA

If you weren’t at The Regent this past Tuesday night, you missed out big time! The double bill was hotter than ever with touring friends Twin Peaks and Hinds. First up were the ever-fun ladies of Hinds. I have actually never seen them perform before so when they walked on stage to Hot Chocolate’s You […]

Bonobo comes to life at Ace with strings, brass, vocals and oh-so-glorious sounds

It definitely was not your typical, mundane Monday evening at the Theater at Ace Hotel in downtown Los Angeles. The beautiful movie palace hosted a sold-out show for Bonobo. The musical project is that of UK producer and multi-instrumentalist, Simon Green. Green has been one of this century’s downtempo leaders since his startup album Animal […]
