Psychedelic Furs
Psychedelic Furs gleam with 80s nostalgia at Teragram Ballroom

Last week’s Psychedelic Furs show at the Teragram Ballroom was a bucket list shoot for me as I’ve been a huge Psych Furs fan forever. I owe this to my aunt who introduced me to The Furs back when I was a wee little boy. In fact, at the ripe young age of 10, my […]

Sunday night was a very heavy and bittersweet night of music at the El Rey Theatre. The night was a tribute and benefit concert for Ikey and Aaron Owens presented by Goldenvoice. Just over a year ago, Isaiah “Ikey” Owens passed away from a heart attack while on tour in Mexico with Jack White. Tragedy […]

Rise Against, Killswitch Engage and letlive. bring pandemonium to Hollywood Palladium

This past Thursday I went to the Hollywood Palladium to check out the first of two sold out shows from hardcore band, Rise Against. Rise Against was one of those bands that I seemed to miss out on when they first came out. My punk rock days were behind me at the point and I […]

Courtney Barnett tops two nights at The Roxy with charismatic performances

The super charismatic and totally relatable, Courtney Barnett just finished up two back-to-back sold out shows this weekend at The Roxy. The Melbourne singer/songwriter has certainly made a name for herself over these last couple years and it doesn’t look she’ll be leveling out anytime soon. While people weren’t lining up for hours to get […]

Toro y Moi take fans on a transcending musical journey at Fonda Theatre

Truth be told, I was a bit worried going into Thursday night’s Toro Y Moi show at The Fonda. Based off of some negative reviews of their Coachella performance last weekend, I was anticipating a slightly boring and uninspired show. Thank Baby Jesus, Chaz and crew did not disappoint! Alternating between keys and guitar, Chaz led […]

Quantic, DJ Vadim and company kick up smoldering dance party at The Roxy

Quantic Anybody that has ever DJ’d 45rpm records knows just how difficult it is to do so. The records are smaller and they move faster, which requires a bit more dexterity and precision when blending records. Well, it’s a good thing master selector and DJ, Will Holland aka Quantic manned the decks at The Roxy […]

Swami John Reis & The Blind Shake bring Modern Surf Classic to life at The Satellite

While I may not be a big fan of surf music, I can definitely stand behind Swami John Reis & The Blind Shake, the latest side project from John Reis (Rocket From The Crypt, Hot Snakes, Drive Like Jehu). In celebration of the recent release of Modern Surf Classic the band took over The Satellite in […]

FKA Twigs envelopes the Regent with a seductive wizardry of harmony and movement

“How can you separate the dancer from the dance?” –William Butler Yeats This pretentious tidbit of critical theory was all I could think of after seeing FKA Twigs’ national television debut on Jimmy Fallon. In that showcase, she balanced the spontaneity of performance with something resembling witchcraft. Her set up was risky; a wind tunnel […]

Blonde Redhead deliver sweet and sublime performance at Fonda Theatre

This last Wednesday, veteran avant-rock band, Blonde Redhead played a sweet and sublime set at the Fonda Theatre. After over 20 years of performing and nine albums later, the trio has gone from noise guitar rock to a more atmospheric electronic sound which had the packed Fonda captivated. The older crowd was so immersed in […]

Afghan Whigs at the Fonda: like a fine wine, they get better with age

It’s been probably 20 or so years since I last saw Afghan Whigs perform, so one could imagine the apprehensions and uncertainty that I felt about seeing them this last Saturday at the Fonda Theatre. I’m usually pretty disappointed by seeing bands that I used to love as a teenager, but Greg Dulli and the […]

The Orwells and Skaters deliver a sweaty rock ‘n’ roll show at the Fonda

Talk about a great way to start your Monday. Indie punk band, The Orwells, took over The Fonda this past Monday with New York-based, Skaters opening up. Per usual, frontman Mario Cuomo worked the Fonda into a frenzy as he strut the stage and crowd surfed into an amped crowd. Performing songs from their debut […]

Small turnout induces lackluster show for Temples, Fever The Ghost and Wampire at the Fonda

Last night was a fairly disappointing night of music at the Fonda Theatre with English psych band Temples. The show was far from sold out, leaving plenty of room to move about. I loved Temples’ debut album, Sun Structures, and I had really high expectations for the four-piece band, unfortunately their performance fell flat and […]

Last night, synth rockers Shiny Toy Guns, played to a ravenous crowd at The Echoplex. Front woman, Carah Faye Charnow had the packed house going crazy from the get go as the band hit hard with “Speaking Japanese”, “Richochet”, and probably their biggest hit, “Le Disko.” Superfans had jammed the stage as they sang along to […]
