Maxwell | BET Experience | 6/27/14 [PHOTOS]

 CLICK HERE TO SEE THE OTHER PERFORMANCES THAT I CAUGHT DURING THE BET EXPERIENCE AT L.A. LIVE I’ve seen Maxwell in concert twice before. This was my first time going to a concert of his solo. I’ll have to admit, not having a date/guest for the show was a little different from the times before. The next time I go, I’ll have to try … Read More Maxwell | BET Experience | 6/27/14 [PHOTOS]

Biffy Clyro | El Rey Theatre | 2/14/14

What band in Europe is big enough to headline over Nine Inch Nails at the  world’s oldest music festival in 2013? Biffy Clyro. Never heard of them? Well, you should.

Morning Parade | El Rey Theatre | 2/14/14

Opening for Biffy Clyro at the El Rey was Morning Parade, a five-piece, alternative rock band from Harlow, Essex. I hadn’t heard of the band before, so my opinion of them is based solely on their performance that evening. They were good. But for a band from overseas trying to leave its mark on a new audience in the States, is “good” good enough? … Read More Morning Parade | El Rey Theatre | 2/14/14

Thruster! | El Cid | 1/31/14

I was already excited to watch Atomic Ape do their thing at El Cid, but when Jason Schimmel messaged me that the band performing after them would blow my mind, my curiosity got piqued. I typically take statements like that with a grain of salt, but knowing how extraordinarily talented a musician Jason is, coming from him, that statement carried with it a lot more weight. A week before the date of … Read More Thruster! | El Cid | 1/31/14

Atomic Ape | El Cid | 1/31/14

What do you get when you combine progressive rock, Balkan folk, Klezmer jazz and surf rock? Atomic Ape.

Ben Harper | Walt Disney Concert Hall | 11/18/13

I  remember the first song I ever heard by Ben Harper. I was a freshman in college, making new friends and discovering a semblance of independence. I participated in several student run organizations, and one of them was a vocal ensemble. A buddy of mine in the group invited me to hang with him and his housemates off campus. While kicking it, someone offered … Read More Ben Harper | Walt Disney Concert Hall | 11/18/13

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
