If there’s one thing I learned from going to Joshua Radin’s gig at The Fonda Theatre it’s that the next time I go to one of his concerts, I’m bringing a date. Period. As I waited for my guest to arrive (a friend, not a date … unfortunately), I took notice of the line waiting to get in. 15 to 1, fellas. 15 gals to 1 guy. Most … Read More REVIEW & PHOTOS: Joshua Radin, Rachael Yamagata & Cary Brothers | The Fonda Theatre | 3/7/15
Galactic brought their raucous brand of New Orleans funk to the El Rey Theatre and we had a friend of the blog, Alex B., review it while D. Lee snapped some pics.
Zap Mama and Antibalas played The Broad Stage in Santa Monica on 2/21/15. We sent M. Sloves to review and D. Lee to shoot.
Los Angeleans, myself included, are a spoiled bunch. With our seemingly perpetual, perfect weather, we aren’t ones who are necessarily fond of inclement weather. In fact, dark clouds in the sky will give pause to many in Los Angeles about whether they’ll even leave the house. But I wasn’t going to let the forecast of bad weather stop me from catching Shaun White’s inaugural … Read More REVIEW: Shaun White Presents AIR+STYLE | The Rose Bowl | 2/21/15-2/22/15
I’ve got a full time job. It takes a lot for me to drive 45 minutes to catch a band play on a weekday. When I found out that The Janks and Rachel Goodrich and the Grrrls were playing on the same bill at the Bootleg HiFi on a Thursday night, the 90 minutes of driving and the subsequent lack of sleep for a 9am … Read More REVIEW: The Janks, Korey Dane & Rachel Goodrich and the Grrrls | Bootleg HiFi | 2/19/15
I always love hitting up venues that I’ve never been to before. I like them even more when bands that I love play there.
I won’t lie. DJ sets these days bore me. The unending flow of generic EDM beats with the expected bass-drops just doesn’t do it for me. It takes a special kind of sound to get me to a club to see a DJ “perform”. Breakbot is one of those DJs.

“Welcome to the craziest fucking night of your entire fucking life,” Dave Grohl shouted to his fans as the Foo Fighters took the rotating circular stage in the middle of The Forum. And just like that … on a cold, rainy Southern California evening in January … the sold out crowd of 17,000 fans were treated to what may very well be the one … Read More Foo Fighters | Dave’s Super Fucking Rad Rock & Roll Club | The Forum | 1/10/15 [Review and Photos]
Yusuf Islam / Cat Stevens | “Peace Train … Late Again” Tour | Nokia Theatre L.A. Live | 12/14/14 [Concert Review & Photos]
Written By: E. Flinn A lot has changed in the 36 years since Cat Stevens last toured the U.S. He left his western life behind, he changed his name to Yusuf Islam, and he converted to Islam. But one thing has not, and that is the universality and timelessness of his sound. Tens of thousands of artists have come and gone since Cat Stevens … Read More Yusuf Islam / Cat Stevens | “Peace Train … Late Again” Tour | Nokia Theatre L.A. Live | 12/14/14 [Concert Review & Photos]
