Of Monsters and Men set Greek Theatre afire with sensational performance

In 2012, as “Little Talks” was overtaking U.S. airwaves. Of Monsters and Men went from winning their native country Iceland’s battle-of-the-bands to being dubbed the next Arcade Fire. Their debut, My Head is an Animal, was a cult singularity in the indie-folk scene; a scene that saw a dubious flare-up of artists who sought to immortalize […]

Hot Chip and !!! (chk chk chk) inspire Greek Theatre crowd to show their moves

One song into Hot Chip‘s Tuesday night headlining set at the Greek Theatre, I looked around and saw a bunch of people dancing with less rhythm than Elaine from Seinfeld. It’s really an awesome thing to see at a concert. Oftentimes, people are too self-conscious to really let loose, especially if dancing isn’t their thing. But […]

Little Dragon strikes the Greek Theatre with a magnetic performance

Imagine this; eight years ago a teeny-tiny indietronic, trip hop, dream pop, soul band from Gothenburg, Sweden couldn’t sell out a show at the 500 capacity Roxy Theater in Los Angeles. Imagine this; last weekend the same musical group nearly sold out the 5,870 seats located at the Greek Theatre to fans that had the […]

Damien Rice and Marketa Irglova stun Greek Theatre into combo of heartbreak, laughter

Last October, Damien Rice delivered one of the two or three best performances I was lucky to see in 2014 performing in a church in front of a few hundred people. Needless to say, the bar was high when I got the opportunity to see Rice and Marketa Irglova perform at the magical Greek Theatre […]

Backlit with vibrant silhouettes, Alt-J transform the Greek Theatre into an atmospheric bubble of pleasure

There’s been a lot of hype around Alt-J since their 2012 debut An Awesome Wave. The album won them the UK’s coveted Mercury prize and have been touted as creative pioneers in a music industry bogged down by the same-same cookie cutter sound. So with the release of their sophomore album, This is All Yours, in […]
