The Soft White Sixties bless Sin City with a sexy dose of rock ‘n’ roll

Photo: Anthony Deeying Thursday night in downtown Las Vegas, emerging San Francisco rock band The Soft White Sixties played through a 45-minute set to a crowd of people who most of which were unaware a show was going to take place. In a nice backyard area of the Gold Spike Casino, only a handful of […]

The Orwells obliterate the Troubadour with a wild sold-out performance

Don’t be fooled by their age, The Orwells are an unstoppable band to be reckoned with. For those that don’t know, they play loud, fast, and catchy garage-punk tunes. They took The Troubadour by force last night with a sold-out performance. Supporting the Orwells were  Twin Peaks and Criminal Hygiene. A broken leg didn’t stop, one of Twin […]

The Casket Girls at the Echo: a rather disappointing performance

The Casket Girls made their Echo debut last night. Their show was less than spectacular. Unless you are into drunken singers, singing off key, doing awkward interpretive dance, and sounding nothing like their studio recordings, this wasn’t the show for you. Sorry, but they just were not what we expected. And just out of sheer observation, […]

Photos: Biffy Clyro put on an incredible sweat-soaked performance at the El Rey!

2014 has practically just begun and I have probably seen the best show of the year. This pat Friday, while couples quality spent time with each other to celebrate Valentine’s Day, I spent quality time with Scottish rockers Biffy Clyro as they took the El Rey by force. With everyone jumping up and down, Morning Parade started off […]

Photos: Los Crudos, Infest & more hardcore punk bands obliterate the Echoplex

First things first, if you don’t like your music loud and fast, you do not belong at a Los Crudos show. The band’s sold-out show at the Echoplex was an explosion of noise, sweat, and bodies flyine everywhere. I was coming back from a photo shoot, so I had my backpack with me. I learned the […]

Photos: together Pangea rip up the Smell for their Badillac record release show

Together Pangea took over the Smell last night, for their sold-out Badillac record release show. The powerhouse of a show was full of sweat, stage diving, and screaming fans, the perfect recipe for a hell of a rock concert. WAND, the Aquadolls, and the Audacity, pumped up the crowd as each performance overtook the audience by force! There […]

PHOTOS: Circa Survive Pack the Shrine Expo Hall with an incredible performance!

First things first, if you have never been to a Circa Survive show, you’re missing out to say the least. That being said, I can safely say they are honestly one of the best bands I have ever seen live. Last night, Circa Survive sold out their biggest show at Shrine Expo Hall. The show […]

A Sing-Along Concert for Fans at Anthony Green’s El Rey Theatre Performance

Last Friday (Nov. 22),  Anthony Green played a beautiful show at the El Rey Theatre. Brick + Mortar and Dave Davidson supported Green. The music sounded perfect as each band brought something fresh for the audience’s ears. Watching Anthony Green perform is much like watching a human firecracker. He erupts with charisma and passion with every movement he […]

Photos & Review: Iceage at the Echo for Culture Collide

Iceage headlined the Echo this past Thursday kickstarting the Culture Collide Festival happening all over Echo Park. I was excited to see Denmark’s post-punk band, Iceage, unfortunately technology failed and cut their set short. There was disappointment and frustration among band members and their fans. The band is not to be blamed, they started their set with […]

Photos & Review: Gogol Bordello with Crystal Antlers at Fonda Theatre

The premier purveyors of Gypsy Punk, Gogol Bordello, headlined the Fonda Theatre on Tuesday, October 8, the second night of three back-to-back shows. A band so diverse, with members hailing from right here in L.A. to Ecuador and Russia. With their music just as diverse, you’ll find it firmly rooted in gypsy punk but not […]
