Interpol
All the rage (seriously, fights broke out) with Interpol at the Shrine

I have been an on-and-off fan of Interpol ever since “Turn on The Bright Lights”. To no fault of their own, Interpol play the style of music that I love. They remind me so much of Joy Division but obviously with their own unique sound, however, I am traditionalist and I have a hard time listening […]

Record Store Day 2017
How to Avoid Being a Douche on Record Store Day

  “Do yourself a tremendous favor and go to a record store today. The relatively mild exertion of getting off your computer-shackled ass and venturing out to find the object of your desire, the thrill of moving through actual space and time, through row upon row of records, and the tactile ecstasy of fondling the […]

Benjamin Booker gives fans at Constellation Room a gloriously violent rock-n-roll shiver

Something that I love about true rock-n-roll music is that it is unapologetically its own. Meaning that those who play, play the way that they want. They don’t let themselves get told what to do and they certainly don’t fall victim to getting forced into one genre or another. They are rebels, they are their […]

Royal Blood leave fans speechless (and one fan shoeless) at Fonda

Just two days removed from their excellent Coachella debut, British rockers Royal Blood shook the Fonda Theatre to its core on Monday night. Still feeling the effects of Coachella myself, the duo of Mike Kerr and Ben Thatcher shook me out of the funk that comes with three long days in the desert. By midway […]
