The Afghan Whigs
Afghan Whigs at the Fonda: like a fine wine, they get better with age

It’s been probably 20 or so years since I last saw Afghan Whigs perform, so one could imagine the apprehensions and uncertainty that I felt about seeing them this last Saturday at the Fonda Theatre. I’m usually pretty disappointed by seeing bands that I used to love as a teenager, but Greg Dulli and the […]

The Orwells and Skaters deliver a sweaty rock ‘n’ roll show at the Fonda

Talk about a great way to start your Monday. Indie punk band, The Orwells, took over The Fonda this past Monday with New York-based, Skaters opening up. Per usual, frontman Mario Cuomo worked the Fonda into a frenzy as he strut the stage and crowd surfed into an amped crowd. Performing songs from their debut […]

Small turnout induces lackluster show for Temples, Fever The Ghost and Wampire at the Fonda

Last night was a fairly disappointing night of music at the Fonda Theatre with English psych band Temples. The show was far from sold out, leaving plenty of room to move about. I loved Temples’ debut album, Sun Structures, and I had really high expectations for the four-piece band, unfortunately their performance fell flat and […]

Shiny Toy Guns light up the Echoplex with “Le Disko” and more

Last night, synth rockers Shiny Toy Guns, played to a ravenous crowd at The Echoplex. Front woman, Carah Faye Charnow had the packed house going crazy from the get go as the band hit hard with “Speaking Japanese”, “Richochet”, and probably their biggest hit, “Le Disko.” Superfans had jammed the stage as they sang along to […]

Panic! At The Disco ignites the Greek for fans both old and new

Tuesday night, I took a trip back to my high school days. No, a DeLorean and Doc Brown weren’t involved. All it took was a trip to the Greek Theatre to see Panic! At The Disco, a band whose popularity first emerged when I was still a teenager with little life experience. One thing that […]

Future Islands soak the Fonda Theatre with a sensational performance

Last night, Baltimore based Synth-pop band, Future Islands, kicked off the first of two back-to-back sold-out shows at the Fonda Theatre. How can you not smile when you have the charismatic sweat-soaked frontman Sam Herring, working every inch of the stage with his signature dance moves? It’s easy to be captivated by Herring and his […]

Foxygen’s Collage Performance at Fonda Theatre is a Beautiful Mess

The style at a Foxygen show is, unsurprisingly, of the era of Foxygen’s music. Foxygen’s era is a bit spread out though, a collage of classic rock iconography plagiarized, improvised and refreshed. Theirs is a sweet spot somewhere between the 50s everybody-gone-surfin’ idealism, the flower-crown 60s love child, 70s glam, and the color schema of […]

Budos Band glisten the Echoplex with incredible funk sheen

I’ve been a big fan of The Budos Band for quite a while now and I FINALLY got around to seeing them perform live. I love their records and when listening to a Budos Band record at home, you get a nice tight and clean performance, but when you see Budos Band play live, you […]

Twin Atlantic and Badflower drive the girls wild at sold out Troubadour show

The Scottish alt-rock band, Twin Atlantic played a sold out show at The Troubadour this last Monday night. While this type of modern pop/alt/rock isn’t really my thing, the crowd, which was primarily younger 20-something girls went crazy as they sang along to every word out of singer, Sam McTrusty’s mouth. The band blasted through […]
