Hot Artist Alert: Superstar to-be, De’Wayne turns heads with debut album “STAINS”

Los Angeles-based De’Wayne is turning heads with the release of his debut album STAINS and the impressive video for “Super 8,” a wild track that once more plays into the artist’s penchant for crafting hook-filled, genre-bending songs.

Nico Franc Brings a Stadium-Ready Show to Resident in DTLA

Nico Franc has that x-factor that people look for when they need to release, whether its jovial or it’s serious. And they go to arenas for that. They go to stadiums for that. They take their childhood best friend to a nostalgic concert for that…but LA based Nico Franc delivered that at the Resident. Read my […]

Reignwolf pleasurably thrash the Fonda along with LA Witch and Irontom

Jordan Cook of Reignwolf can play guitar with one hand tied behind his back. During most of their set Friday night at the Fonda Theatre, his guitar dangled from his left hand with strap swinging behind like a tiger tail as he magically played dirty blues riffs while crooning into a mic held by his […]

The Schizophonics at The Hi Hat
The Hi Hat was shaking with The Woggles, The Schizophonics and The Two Tens

The Woggles may not be a household name but they have been an active band for over 30 years and they are not slowing down a bit.

Song Premiere: Dorothy Knows That Flawless is a Process

In 2013, “flawless” was more than a synonym for perfection. Thanks to Beyonce’s single, it became an overtly feminist affirmation, one that prioritized self-confidence over meeting expectations. With their brand new single–and the first from their forthcoming sophomore album, 28 Days in the Valley–Dorothy adds to that narrative. Listen to “Flawless” exclusively below. While the […]

Song Premiere: TEST Debut “Bleached Hands” Ahead of Hi Hat Performance

TEST prides itself on being a band, and not a ‘project.’ The trio makes unapologetic rock music, so it makes sense that they’d also keep a strict definition of exactly who they are. It all began in a warehouse in Vernon, living off of cheap noodles and the promise of creative catharsis. After a couple […]
