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 […]

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 […]

Photos: Depeche Mode at Staples Center

For those that attended one of Depeche Mode’s shows at STAPLES Center, you know how beautifully nostalgic and flat out stunning their performance was. Last night we caught Depeche Mode at STAPLE Center and it was mesmerizing. Dave Gahan hasn’t aged a day and he had the enticing stage energy and presence to prove it. […]

Fans were real stoked to hear some […]

Photos: The Julie Ruin at Echoplex — Sept. 19

The riot grrrl prodigy, Kathleen Hanna is back with a new music project — the Julie Ruin — and it kicks ass. We know because we saw their raucous sold-out show last night at the Echoplex, which by the way got moved from the Echo to accommodate more folks. The longtime Bikini Kill songstress started the Julie Ruin […]

Photos: Fidlar with The Orwells at the Observatory – September 19

Last night, Fidlar played their best show that I have seen at the Observatory. With support from the Orwells, Meat Market, and the Garden the show was a total wild house of loud, fast rock and roll. I’m surprised the Observatory was still standing after that powerhouse of an evening. The point being, if you haven’t seen Fidlar […]

Photos: The Zombies at Satellite – September 13

You’ve probably heard their world renowned hits, “She’s Not There” and “Time of the Season” on classic rock radio stations, and hopefully in your own vinyl collection. From England, the iconic psychedelic rockers, the Zombies played a very intimate show at the Satellite in Silver Lake this past Friday. Among the sold-out crowd were silverbacks […]
