There are very few frontman who are as animated in their gesticulated expressions as Herring and while they were prepping for their Coachella appearances […]

Future Islands and RL Grime redeem catastrophic finale for Beach Goth day two

It all started with a drizzle. Like some cruelly designed Rube Goldberg device, Beach Goth 2016 on day two began with a promising overcast skyline that eventually deteriorated into a full-blown catastrophe that led to an entire stage being shut-down, the cancellation of headline acts, and utter confusion due to virtually no communication from the festival’s […]

Duran Duran, Metric, Clean bandit deliver top Life is Beautiful day two sets

Night Terrors of 1927 Day two of Life is Beautiful was the most jam-packed day of the downtown Las Vegas festival schedule-wise. It makes sense. People that drove in from LA or flew in from elsewhere get to enjoy a full day’s worth of music whereas the other two days are sometimes eaten up by […]

Death From Above 1979, Future Islands & more to headline Red Bull Sound Select’s 30 Days in LA

Ask any venue booker how difficult it is to set up one show and they’ll tell you it can be a huge pain in the ass. Extrapolate that over the course of 30 days in one city across multiple venues, and the task seems downright impossible. Tuesday, Red Bull Sound Select announced that they’ve managed […]

Future Islands’ showmanship a sight to see at FYF Fest

Let me preface my review of this set by saying I’m not the biggest Future Islands fan. That said, you can’t help but respect their live act and FYF Fest 2014 proved no different. The Baltimore synth band has tremendous stage charisma thanks to the dance stylings of Samuel Herring. It’s just very unexpected to […]
