Asobi Seksu at the Troubador – Show Review

Two man bands seem to be all the hype of the late, but only a few select performers can pull it off. In the case of Brooklyn duo, Asobi Seksu, they played a high-energy show last Thursday at the Troubador, alongside Anna Ternheim and Loney, Dear. I wouldn’t quite call them a duo though. And […]

Loney, Dear at the Troubadour – Show Review

Holy shit! Did your mic stand just hit me!? Yep. As Anna Ternheim’s set finished last Thursday at the Troubadour with Loney, Dear sitting in as her band, their mic stand fell from the stage and landed on my arm as they were clearing the stage. Thank goodness it didn’t touch the camera! As sweet […]

The Sway Machinery at The Sanctuary at Temple Emanu-El, San Francisco

Jewish, cantorial and inde rock? What the fuck … that just doesn’t sound right. Well apparently is sounded amazing this past Saturday, Sept. 19 when The Sway Machinery performed at The Sanctuary at Temple Emanu-El in San Francisco. Featuring Members of Balkan Beat Box, Arcade Fire and Beirut, it was a powerful night of music. […]

The Dodos at Amoeba Music San Francisco

Looks like The Dodos made time on their busy tour schedule to hit up Amoeba Music in San Francisco. No surprise there, considering they hail from this historic city quickly rising as a spawning ground for indie rock. In support of their new album “Time To Die,” The Dodos played a killer show this past […]

Bridezilla at the Echo

After reviewing their EP, I already knew these lil Aussies barely out of high school were quite the talent. As for their live performance this past Thursday night at the Echo, well, uh … they were excellent. Front woman, Holiday Carmen-Sparks’ vocals are ever-so enchanting even more so when she’s standing less than three feet […]

Outside Lands Festival 2009 Day 1

“I’m so hot my eyeballs are fuckin’ sweating!” Those were my exact thoughts as we rolled up to the 2009 Outside Lands music festival. I gotta admit, the LA heat and blue skies must of followed me to San Francisco cause it was record breaking heat at about 100 degrees. LA’s West Indian Girl hit […]

Wanderlust Festival Day Two

Since Friday night’s “late night at Wanderlust” party was far too glow-stick-raver nerd for me, we were able to wake up well rested and energized for our noon yoga class. After getting mislead to the wrong yoga class which just so happened to be called “self massage with balls,” we finally found our chosen session […]

Propaghandi Live Show Review – Glass House, Pomona

23 years and counting, Canadian political punkers, Propaghandi, still gots it! They’re show at the Glass House (Pomona, Calif.) last Friday, May 29 was off the hook! The venue was filled, and definitely not with your average hipster teens, (that’s for sure — but the new Fox Theater had a swarm of  them). I think […]

Black Lips at Glass House in Pomona, Calif. May 2, 2009

Not even 24 hours on first-time American soil, I welcome my cousin, quite the cute Peruvian import, to the good ole US of A with a crazy Black Lips show. Thanks to my boys at the Glass House, we had a blast! Although the venue wasn’t sold out, it was a solid crowd. My cousin […]

Black Lips Show Review @ Music Hall of Williamsburg, March 10

“These guys wanna fuckin’ die on stage.” That’s one of the thoughts that ran through my head barely three songs into the Black Lips performance. The energy these crazy cats bring is unparalleled. I’ll spare a comparo because they’ve all been hog-tied to the bumper of a rusty old Ford pickup and dragged through the […]
