REVIEW: Martin Sexton | El Rey Theatre | 3/13/15

The first time I heard of Martin Sexton, it was in college circa 1998. A member of my vocal group had arranged an acappella cover of his song “Love Keep Us Together.” It was a beautiful arrangement, and I loved singing the background tenor 2 part every time our music director called it.

Goapele | El Rey Theater | 11/18/14 [Review, Photos and Video]

Goapele: Facebook | Twitter | Instagram Earlier this year, I got a call from management to negotiate a side artist agreement for a track Snoop was to be featured on. When I asked who the featured verse was for, management indicated that it was a female R&B singer named Goapele. Goapele … that name sounded so familiar to me. I quickly opened my iTunes and found that I had … Read More Goapele | El Rey Theater | 11/18/14 [Review, Photos and Video]

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

Typhoon | El Rey Theatre | 3/6/14

There’s so much music out in the world today, it gets a bit hard, even with Spotify, or other similar streaming services, to find music that really speaks to you. I’ve always believed in the notion that the music finds you, and sometimes when it finds you, it leaves a lasting impression that can stick with you for the rest of your life. In … Read More Typhoon | El Rey Theatre | 3/6/14

Miner | El Rey Theatre | 3/6/14

Excited that Typhoon’s management gave me permission to bring a DSLR camera into the El Rey to snap pics of the gig, I got to the venue early enough to stake out some territory and to play around with the settings of my new camera. While fiddling with my new  toy, a Silver Lake based folk band named Miner took to the stage, set up and … Read More Miner | El Rey Theatre | 3/6/14

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. Formed back in 1995 in Kilmarnock, Scotland, Biffy Clyro has released 6 albums, and sold over 1.1 millions copies of their albums in the United Kingdom. Back in the United Kingdrom, they sell out venues … Read More Biffy Clyro | El Rey Theatre | 2/14/14

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
