Robert Glasper Experiment | The Troubadour | 1/24/14

If you are visiting Los Angeles, and music is your thing, hitting up a show at the Troubadour  (or another iconic performance venue) should be on your list of things to do. If you are a Los Angeles resident, and you haven’t been to the Troubadour … shame on you. I kid … kind of. With a maximum capacity of 400,  the Troubadour has … Read More Robert Glasper Experiment | The Troubadour | 1/24/14

Falling In Reverse & Escape The Fate | The Wiltern | 1/15/14

How do you get me to go to a show for a band that I know nothing about? Offer me a free ticket. The buddy of mine who went to the Nine Inch Nails concert with me last year gave me a call and invited me to see a band that he enjoyed listening to named Falling In Reverse. The band’s name rang a bell, so I … Read More Falling In Reverse & Escape The Fate | The Wiltern | 1/15/14

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

Iron & Wine | The Orpheum Theatre | 10/31/13

I didn’t have much of a social life during law school, and that’s probably a good explanation as any as to why my music collection tends to lack albums released during that time of my life. Insofar as I didn’t have a television during that time, and the only recordings I listened to were recordings of lectures explaining aspects of civil procedure or property … Read More Iron & Wine | The Orpheum Theatre | 10/31/13

Moses Sumney | Skirball Center | 11/30/13

On July 31, 2013, I went to go see Hiatus Kaiyote at the Bootleg Theater. Following the gig, and due to a year long set of fate-induced circumstances, I was lucky enough to hang out with the band for a bit before they had to run to the airport for travel. The lead singer, Nai Palm, was hanging outside with KCRW DJ, Jeremy Sole, and another … Read More Moses Sumney | Skirball Center | 11/30/13

Hanni El Khatib| El Rey Theatre| 10/25/13

I spend a lot of money to go to a lot of concerts each year, so it takes a lot for me to want to see the same band or recording artist perform more than once a year. This year, I went to see two acts three times. One of them was Hanni El Khatib.  I saw Hanni El Khatib open for The Black Angels in … Read More Hanni El Khatib| El Rey Theatre| 10/25/13

Bass Drum of Death | El Rey Theatre | 10/25/13

I follow Thundercat on twitter, and I noticed a tweet he posted earlier this year stating that the guys in Bass Drum of Death were cool dudes. That piqued my curiosity. Them opening for Hanni El Khatib? I was excited to hear what they were all about. Their set was as aggressive and as loud as their name would imply. There was almost a collective release … Read More Bass Drum of Death | El Rey Theatre | 10/25/13
