Offspring turns Hollywood Palladium into sweaty mosh pit with epic 19-song set full of hits

By the end of “Bad Habit” — the first song of the Offspring‘s set at the Hollywood Palladium — I was drenched in sweat as though I was a raver kid on molly at a Flosstradamus show. The entire front two-thirds of the massive roller-rink style floor was a mosh-pit and people were ready to […]

Bodies fly through the air at Los Crudos’ Ukrainian Culture Center show; Alice Bag makes guest appearance

It was night one of a weekend music and ink festival. Musink went off without a hitch and the bands of night one really knew how to get the festival started.
