Enormously influential in its heyday, religiously mythologized in its present, yet seemingly unrelated to any scene in the last 20 years.

Tuesday night, English synthpop export La Roux rocked The Fonda Theatre like gangbusters. Where Kylie Minogue left things with European dance pop, La Roux picked it up and has taken it to another level. What you get with La Roux on album is surprisingly close to what you get on stage.

Sunset Strip Music Festival Day 2: Out with the old, in with the new

After lamenting the demise of the Sunset Strip in my review of day one, I took note of the fact that lineups between day one and day two were perfectly crafted for two very different types of audience. While day one catered to rock and roll purists, day two focused on the future of music […]
