The National at the Fox Theatre Pomona – Photo Gallery & Review

October has been a month doused with some of the best shows LA and its surrounding areas have seen and The National’s extraordinary performance at the Fox Theatre Pomona last Saturday, October 16, was no exception.

Owen Pallett at the Fox Theatre Pomona – Photo Gallery & Review

Kicking off and extraordinary evening of music with The National being the main course, Owen Pallett (formerly Final Fantasy) was the aural appetizer that set our musical journey into play. This lil Canadian fellow is quite the genius when it comes to conjuring up some majestic sounds on the violin. From the traditional use of […]

Miike Snow at Club Nokia – Photos & Review

Miike Snow returned to LA last Thursday, October 14, 2010 and played to a packed audience at Club Nokia. Most seasoned concert-goers know the tedious feeling of waiting through bad opening bands before the headliner plays.

MNDR at Club Nokia – Photo Gallery & Review

MNDR was one of the lusciously bombastic openers at Miike Snow’s show last Thursday, October 14th at Club Nokia! Unlike most shows where concert-goers opt to skip out on the opener, MNDR was an opener not to miss!  Leading lady, Amanda Warner performed synth-laden, disco reminiscent pop songs in front of a colorful projection of […]

The Besnard Lakes at Filter Magazine’s Culture Collide Festival – Photo Gallery & Review

As part of Filter Magazine’s Culture Collide Festival, The Besnard Lakes put on a hell of a show this past Friday, October 8th at the Echoplex. Unlike their Montreal cohorts Land of Talk, The Besnard Lakes were anything but boring. With front-man Jace Lasek, reviving everything that made the late 60s and early 70s so damn […]

Land of Talk at Echoplex for Filter Magazine’s Culture Collide Festival – Photo Gallery & Review

We all have that friend that doesn’t have the best taste in music. And just because you may have incredible taste in music, doesn’t mean you dislike your friend any less. In fact, you probably hope that some of your selections will rub off on him or her. This past Friday, October 8th at the […]

Austin City Limits 2010: Day One Photos & Review

The glowing afternoon light reflected off the skyscrapers of downtown Austin on Friday, October 8th. Day one of Austin City Limits was perfect festival weather, and the crowd was mellow and friendly. Five minutes in and some random stranger handed me a button that said “Austinite” on it. Given that I’d only moved there a […]
