Yelle at the Echoplex – Photo Gallery & Review

I don’t think you can help yourself if you go to a Yelle show, you will dance. The Yelle show at the Echoplex on Friday, November 5, was a sold-out crowd full of helplessly grooving hipsters in their funkiest garb. As one girl out in the smoking deck put it, “I saw all these goth […]

As a total surprise and special treat, The Cult’s, Ian Astbury, joined James Lavelle on stage for “Burn My Shadow” from 2007’s “War Stories.” It was pretty damn cool. Opening up […]

Sleigh Bells at the El Rey Theatre – Photo Gallery & Review

Last Wednesday Sleigh Bells headlined a sold out show at the El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles. They played the week before with LCD Soundsystem and Hot Chip at Hollywood Bowl but it’s clear that LA fans needed an additional dose of the noise pop duo.

Esben And The Witch at El Rey Theatre – Photo Gallery & Review

Supporting Foals last Monday, October 18th at the El Rey Theatre, fellow Brits Esben and the Witch, opened on a nearly pitch-dark stage with foreboding drums and discordant vocals. Newly signed to Matador Records this year, the three-piece band played just in time to fit the mood for Halloween. They’ve mastered a shadowy, nightmarish sound […]
