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 […]

Dan Auerbach at the Bowery Ball Room – March 3, 2009 Show Review

What an incredible show! There was copius shots of Jack Daniels, delicious cigarettes, friendly show goers, and (most importantly) kick ass melt your geriatric grandma’s face off motherfuckin’ rock and roll! Those Darlins were a treat of an opener. Their dirty country swagger and rad outfits (ruffly booty shorts)! A fucking fox or lion or […]

The Black Keys at Terminal 5–February 09

This past Saturday night (February 7) was “such a perfect day.” The day was bright and sunny, and pretty warm for New York City. Started out with some vintage record shopping at Fifth Avenue Record & Tape in Brooklyn where I was subjected to listening to some mildly retarded woman blab about her record collection, […]
