Warpaint
Band Of Horses and Warpaint enamor crowd at Fox Theater with blissful sets

Friday night was done oh so right in Pomona this past weekend! Almost serving as a double header we had Warpaint and of course, the evening’s highly anticipated headliner, Band Of Horses. Kicking off the evening with some fire, were our Los Angeles vixens themselves: Warpaint. Emily, Theresa, Jenny and Stella — holy hell. These girls […]

Cold War Kids
Christmas arrives early with Cold War Kids ALTimate Xmas concert at the El Rey Theatre

Ever since their debut way back in the spring of 2005, Cold War Kids have become something of local legends in Los Angeles’ throbbing indie-rock scene, as they’ve maintained an ever-growing following that has only exploded since the breakout release of Hold My Home this year. Firmly rooted in quintessential Americana that melds rock and blues indiscriminately, the quintet boasts a […]

Mr. Little Jeans
Mr Little Jeans enraptures Constellation Room with invigorating bliss

Monica Birkenes–known by her stage name as Mr Little Jeans–might vibe greatly in the moody atmospherics of shadowy indie-rock that draws comparisons to everyone from Lykke Li to Lana Del Rey, but the Norwegian singer/songwriter moves in a lane all her own.

James Vincent McMorrow
James Vincent McMorrow Blends Polar Ends of Pop at the Wiltern

Irish singer-songwriter James Vincent McMorrow is about as flashy as his stage name. Awaiting his live show, it’s unwise to expect pyrotechnics or pageantry, because this musician requires little beyond a microphone to move a swath of fans, even one as vast as a full Wiltern Theater. Last Thursday night, in support of his latest […]

Alina Bea
Alina Bea Brings Star Power and Strings to the Bootleg Bar

In the gentrified crannies of major cities, concerts are often more about the hype behind the performer’s brand name than the actual experience itself, making the path to success especially daunting for underground musicians who haven’t had help from the corporate generators of the music industry. “Free Monday night residency at the the Bootleg Bar” […]
