Local Natives at El Rey Theatre: Show Review and Photos

Although I had never seen the Local Natives perform, I had streamed some of their music and was totally diggin’ their psych-rockin’-folk vibe. Little did I know that their on-stage live performance would surpass their audio capabilities. I absolutely love when a band sounds even better live than through the magical ways of audiotune. Even […]

Glass Ghost at El Rey Theatre

Opening up for Brookly buddies, White Rabbits, the eclectic duo, Glass Ghost, started off as a bit of yawn, but definitely progressed into quite the show towards the end of their set. Although I heard some negative words against them from a few show-goers, I felt they put on a pretty cool show. With a […]

White Rabbits at El Rey Theatre: Show Review and Photos

A whole lotta hype, but not enough vavoom! I hate to say it, but unlike most of the trendy concert goers at last night’s show (11/2/09) with the White Rabbits, Local Natives and Glass Ghost, at the El Rey Theatre — I just wasn’t feelin’ White Rabbits. Although a talented band with some damn catchy […]

Those Darlins at The Hotel Cafe – Show Review

“If you don’t want a wild one, quit hanging ’round with me, you knew right from the start that’s my personality, if you can’t handle crazy, go ahead and leave, if you don’t want a wild one, quit hanging ’round with me.” Those Darlins could not have said it any better with the sassy lyrics […]

The Ettes at The El Rey – Show Review

The Ettes played with Juliette and The Licks this past Saturday at the El Rey Theatre.  If you don’t know who The Ettes are, you best get on it and check their shit out! They’re one of the best female fronted bands out there and have a chick drummer who is actually hot (not butch)! […]

Juliette and The Licks at The El Rey Theatre – Show Review

Juliette and The Licks was a mad rock n’ roll woman this past Saturday at the El Rey Theatre. Playing alongside The Ettes, Juliette and the The Licks rocked the crowd before them until everyone’s ears were fuzzrocked to hell! Unlike many actors-turned-singers, Juliet Lewis is actually fuckin’ good and can put on a killer […]

Austin City Limits (2009) Day 3 Photos and Review!

WORDS: Q Manning Day Three started with a wish: please, keep the rain away. The Alamo Drafthouse had just hosted the best film festival ever, its annual Fantastic Fest, and Paul, like many of the attendees, had been struck by the dreaded “fantasticFlu.” This left me as the sole photographer. The forecast dictated a 94% […]

Austin City Limits (2009) Day 2 Photos and Review!

WORDS: Q Manning You’d be hard-pressed to imagine a way that Day Two of ACL Fest could have been different from Day One. Whereas the day before had everyone putting on sunblock and buying cowboy hats/sunglasses (I know I had to), Day Two created an ocean of umbrellas and ponchos. After the first day, I […]
