The Kills rock foundation of Apogee Studio away from the harsh winds of Coachella

The Kills vocalist Alison Mosshart paced the tiny stage at Apogee Studio back and forth, biting her nails waiting for guitarist Jamie Hince to launch into the opening song of their KCRW Morning Becomes Eclectic performance. Once “U R A Fever” started, Mosshart and Hince were all business, after engaging in an oft-hilarious 20-minute conversation […]

Glen Hansard makes Apogee Studio crowd laugh, nearly cry

If there’s one thing that Glen Hansard has proven to be in his songwriting, it’s that he is one hell of a storyteller. Wednesday night, Hansard only further illustrated that point in an intimate performance at Santa Monica’s Apogee Studio for KCRW. What I expected to be an hour-long performance — including interview — turned […]

Cold War Kids rock Annenberg Space for Photography for tepid crowd

Sometimes, I get this feeling that Los Angeles is spoiled when it comes to live music, and therefore they don’t appreciate how good they have it. Such was the case Saturday night, when Long Beach’s own radio-rockers Cold War Kids headlined the final night of KCRW’s Sound in Focus free shows at Studio City’s Annenberg […]

Alabama Shakes give special intimate performance at Apogee Studios

Just a few days removed from their second of two tremendous sunset Coachella sets, the soulful Alabama Shakes performed a much more intimate — and just as affecting — set at Apogee Studios yesterday in Santa Monica.

Toro y Moi straps on guitar and plays new record in full at Apogee Studio soiree

Update: Previously we mistakenly reported that KCRW would broadcast the live session on Friday, March 27th. The broadcast of this show will be on Friday, April 3rd. I felt terribly underdressed at KCRW’s private Toro y Moi show. It was the mini flatbread crackers that did it. There were elegant trays of them, three different […]
