Jonathan Rado — Law and Order — Album Review

Pinning down Los Angeles-based (and occasionally Brooklyn) band Foxygen is a chore. Are they backward-facing 60s revivalists? Are they loose rockers fusing both the spirit of pre-punk and freedom rock? Are they dreamy pop stars with great hair and great press? Are they a Velvets-ey slacker duo who use faux-apathy to show their disdain for […]

Hot Band Alert: Photo & Review of the Moth & the Flame at Bootleg Bar

Back in April, our friend and fellow music photographer, Marcelo Ambriz, had told me about his friend’s band, the Moth & the Flame. At the time they were playing a show at the Silverlake Lounge and he had sent me the link to their “How We Woke Up” video and I was thoroughly impressed by […]

Just Announced: Blink 182 at Hollywood Palladium – Nov. 6 & 7

Unless you’re 16, Blink 182 may be a tad too radio-pop-punk for you (well, at least for most of our readers). But if you were a teen of the 90s, chances are you loved these guys at one point. We can’t deny that their 1995 studio debut, Cheshire Cat was a teen gem and probably […]
