Rival Sons | The Observatory | 9/19/14 [Photos]

A few weeks ago, I was sitting in a club with a friend and we were talking about bad ass bands, and the name Rival Sons came up. I had never heard of the band previously, so I had I a lot of questions. Where are they from? What kind of music do they play? How many albums have they released? The only I … Read More Rival Sons | The Observatory | 9/19/14 [Photos]

Illumination Road | Hotel Cafe | 8/29/14 [Photos]

I love the Hotel Cafe. It’s a classy and intimate performance venue that has a great sound system and they always seem to find great local (and touring) talent to perform on their small stage.   I was excited when I heard that Illumination Road was playing there (full disclosure, I know a couple of the guys in the band), but truth be told I … Read More Illumination Road | Hotel Cafe | 8/29/14 [Photos]

Rival Sons | “Open My Eyes” | Music Video

I’m checking out Rival Sons this Friday (9/19/14) at the Observatory in Orange County. I’ve been jonseing to see them perform live since I caught wind of their music. Hopefully, I get approved for a photo pass!

The Zombies | Twilight Concert Series | Santa Monica Pier | 8/21/14 [PHOTOS]

CLICK HERE to check out other acts performing a Twilight Concert at the Santa Monica Pier! When I was approved to shoot The Zombies at the Santa Monica Pier, I was giddy. Being a supreme music dweeb, I was fully aware of their impact in popular music. Their sound basically redefined rock music. I’d try to wax poetic about how amazingly (and truthfully, surprisingly) they … Read More The Zombies | Twilight Concert Series | Santa Monica Pier | 8/21/14 [PHOTOS]

The Strypes | El Rey Theatre | 3/31/14

I don’t know what they are feeding their kids across the pond, but I would suggest that we bring whatever they have over there and start feeding it to our kids in the States. It was a last minute decision, but having missed out on seeing Jake Bugg perform at The Wiltern, I decided that I wouldn’t miss out on catching The Strypes, a four piece blues/garage rock … Read More The Strypes | El Rey Theatre | 3/31/14

Illumination Road | The Troubadour | 2/17/14

Last June, I went to go see Illumination Road at The Roxy; a band that writes and performs music with a distinctly classic rock edge. Now, I don’t usually go out on Mondays, but when I heard that they were scheduled to open for another band at The Troubadour, I had to suck it up and check them out. I’m glad I did. I … Read More Illumination Road | The Troubadour | 2/17/14

The Janks | The Satellite | 11/15/13

New Years is around the corner, and I already have a band on my list to catch live in 2014. They’re called The Janks, and they’re pretty damn good live. Fronted by the brothers Zmed (Zachary and Dylan), this band’s music touches on elements of blues, folk and classic rock. I wasn’t familiar with their music at all when I saw them take the stage … Read More The Janks | The Satellite | 11/15/13

Illumination Road | The Roxy | June 4, 2013

A couple years ago, while throwing back some scotch at one of my favorite pubs in Santa Monica, Ye Olde King’s Head, I was introduced to a couple of musicians who were in a LA based band called Ironheel. They were in the process of putting together a full length album, and they gave me some sites where I could check out their music. Sometime … Read More Illumination Road | The Roxy | June 4, 2013

Toddchella | Part III | We Were Indians

Continued from Toddchella | Part II | The Record Company My buzz was still going, and I kept going to the bar to get more ice for my scotch. I tipped each time I ask for more ice. I never had to wait for ice. Tipping usually works that way. I head back out to the stage area, and by the time I returned … Read More Toddchella | Part III | We Were Indians
