Medicine | Culture Collide | 10/11/13

Click here to check out the other bands that I saw perform at Culture Collide 2013 Shoegazing is a sub genre of alternative rock that emerged from the United Kingdom in the late 1980s. As per its entry on Wikipedia, “The British music press—particularly NME and Melody Maker—named this style shoegazing because the musicians in these bands stood relatively still during live performances in a detached, introspective, non-confrontational … Read More Medicine | Culture Collide | 10/11/13

Solange | FYF Festival | August 25, 2013

To check out pictures of other bands I was able to catch at the festival, CLICK HERE. Having been blown away by Beyonce when I saw her perform at the Staples Center earlier in the year, I thought it was only right to see her younger sister, Solange, perform. I had heard good things about her latest album, Solo Star, and even better things about her EP, True, so I … Read More Solange | FYF Festival | August 25, 2013

MGMT | FYF Festival | August 25, 2013

To check out pictures of other bands I was able to catch at the festival, CLICK HERE. The last time I saw MGMT was when they played a tent at Coachella back in 2008 supporting their debut album Oracular Spectacular.  The buzz around them was huge at the time, and their singles “Kids“,  “Time to Pretend” and “Electric Feel”  were getting tons of radio play. I remember their set … Read More MGMT | FYF Festival | August 25, 2013

The Orwells | FYF Festival | August 25, 2013

I wasn’t planning on catching their set, but I got to the festival grounds early enough to catch the tail end of a rock band from Elmhurst, Illinois: The Orwells. They are a young band … literally … the oldest member- lead singer Mario Cuomo- is 18, and the … Read More The Orwells | FYF Festival | August 25, 2013

Devendra Banhart | FYF Festival | August 24, 2013

To check out pictures of other bands I was able to catch at the festival, CLICK HERE. I’d heard a lot about Devendra Banhart, but I’ve never taken the time to really listen to the music in his 9 album catalog. I figured I’d use his set at the festival to get acclimated to his music. By the time I got to the stage where he … Read More Devendra Banhart | FYF Festival | August 24, 2013

The Breeders | FYF Festival | August 24, 2013

To check out pictures of other bands I was able to catch at the festival, CLICK HERE. Since I was already up at the front of the stage for Charles Bradley, I decided to stay put for the next band to grace the main stage: The Breeders. The Breeders were very popular during my high school days in the early 90s, but truth be told, during that … Read More The Breeders | FYF Festival | August 24, 2013

FYF FEST | L.A. State Historic Park | August 24 and 25, 2013

The line-up for the 10th annual FYF Fest was stellar. For only $99, I was able to attend the two day festival, and though I had tried my darnedest to get a press-pass to no avail, I went guerrilla-style to catch those acts I wanted to see and take the best possible pictures I could. Links to the other acts I was able to … Read More FYF FEST | L.A. State Historic Park | August 24 and 25, 2013
