Thom Yorke at Greek Theatre
Thom Yorke transforms the Greek Theatre L.A. into something out of this world

If Thom Yorke was a Jedi, he would be approaching Yoda status. This past Tuesday night at the Greek Theatre, L.A. — Yorke’s musical mastery was on full display.

IDLES and Surfbort bring a Wildly Empowering Night to the Wiltern

The Wiltern is usually a relatively chill place to see a show in my experience. The pit is separated from the rest of the room by a ramp that the photographers are allowed to use for photography. It generally serves for a pretty intense barrier. That was NOT the case last night when IDLES and […]

Reignwolf pleasurably thrash the Fonda along with LA Witch and Irontom

Thunder Pussy at El Rey Theatre
Things get delightfully physical with Thunderpussy and Black Pistol Fire at the El Rey

Whoever thought to put Thunderpussy and Black Pistol Fire on the same bill is a genius. This past Wednesday night at the El Rey Theatre was a sweatastic event. Thunderpussy started their set very quiet and mellow with guitarist Whitney Petty bowing her strings in a spot light. One-by-one the band took the stage until […]
