Peaches Puts on Her “Pussy Mask” in New NSFW Video, Out Now Via Third Man Records

There’s a reason you know Peaches. The Toronto native (and Scorpio sun) has made a name for herself as what some may see as a provocateur; others know her as an outspoken, queer feminist who has embedded herself in popular culture. Her latest track, “Pussy Mask” is a cheeky response to anti-maskers that puts her […]

Egg Drop Soup Serve Up A Salty New Music Video for their song “Subdivision”

Released earlier this year, the single ‘Subdivision” by local L.A. band Egg Drop Soup, is another side spinning single from the punk band breathing new life into genre of punk and grunge music. Of course the band doesn’t just leave it there. In addition to laying down some sick licks, they do so in the […]

Alice Bag Embraces Her ‘Spark’ on New Single Lifted from Forthcoming LP, Sister Dynamite

Mexican-American queer punk icon Alice Bag continues to make headlines after nearly forty years active in the East LA community. She was an elementary school teacher before she dabbled in music with several bands, though none more important than the Bags; the group played a pivotal role as part of the local first-wave punk scene […]

Stonefield blaze trails at Zebulon before European tour

The Australian sisters Findlay, of Stonefield, are back in the states touring their way to Europe. It was only a year ago when we interviewed them while they played their residency at the Bootleg and hoped for this kind of tour. They have grown quite a loyal following of fans with their heavy Sabbath-psych rock. […]

IDLES and Surfbort bring a Wildly Empowering Night to the Wiltern

The Wiltern is usually a relatively chill place to see a show in my experience. The pit is separated from the rest of the room by a ramp that the photographers are allowed to use for photography. It generally serves for a pretty intense barrier. That was NOT the case last night when IDLES and […]

WAR STORIES: Tales of 70’s & 80’s Punk Mayhem Told By The Perpetrators Themselves, featuring The Dils

Bands come and go. We all have our favorites that we wish we could hear one more time. For many who witnessed the original California punk scene back in the 70’s The Dils were one such band. Although founding brothers Chip and Tony Kinman were musical partners for many years The Dils existence was as […]

Hot Band Alert: Automatic share anxious rock single “Too Much Money” from new album Signal

A few decades ago L.A. trio Automatic—with their eclectic and unpolished rock leanings—might’ve found themselves at home opening for the likes of Blondie. Comprised of Izzy Glaudini (synths/vocals), Lola Dompé, (drums/vocals) and Halle Saxon (bass/vocals), Automatic was formed in the heart of L.A.’s DIY scene. Their new single “Too Much Money” reveals as much: a […]

Friday Night Left the Echoplex in Stitches

Friday night was a solid four-band line up at the Echoplex. Opening the night were The Brutalists, a bit of LA Guns with a smidge of Quireboys with some dirty post punk and a dash of ska. Next up were LA natives, Cheap Tissue, who turned up the energy and made the transition to total […]

The Revolution Reunited: Bikini Kill rattle the Hollywood Palladium with pure positivity and love

The day Brett Kavanaugh was confirmed to the Supreme Court, I did something I hadn’t done in a long time. I blasted Bikini Kill’s “Resist Psychic Death” on repeat to combat the overwhelmingly sharp pain that periodically breaks through the numbing despair of our post-Obama news cycle. Driving down Silver Lake Boulevard screaming at the […]

Feminist Punks OBJECT AS SUBJECT To Perform at Repro Rights Benefit RADICAL ACTS at Zebulon

The last we heard from OBJECT AS SUBJECT, they had just released their very first single. “Weaponry” was a bombastic introduction to the project led by Paris Hurley, which led to the release of a full-length album, PERMISSION, just a few months later. This feminist collective will be performing at RADICAL ACTS: A Party for […]
