“The End Of The Road” | Queens of the Stone Age & The Kills | The Forum | 10/31/14 [Photos, Setlists & Video]

As much as I enjoy getting drunk at a bar and ogling scantily clad women dressed slutty with a purpose, I was debating my plans for Halloween this year. I was hoping for something different; something memorable. Thankfully, a friend (who, by the way, may just be too cool for me), offered me her extra ticket to see Queens of the Stone Ages’s final concert of … Read More “The End Of The Road” | Queens of the Stone Age & The Kills | The Forum | 10/31/14 [Photos, Setlists & Video]

THE ACT: Heartless Bastards | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram SOUNDS LIKE:  THOUGHTS: I was really looking forward to seeing/hearing Heartless Bastards live, but sound problems at the start of their set didn’t really give me a chance really appreciate what I know this band is capable of.

To Check Out Other Acts that I Caught At Echo Park Rising, CLICK HERE. THE ACT: Allah-Las Members: Miles, Pedrum, Spencer Dunham (bass) and Matt Correia (drums) SOUNDS LIKE: THOUGHTS: There’s a reason why this Los Angeles-based garage rock band has been making waves as of late. Their neo-psychedlic sound is effortless and their laid-back stage-presence adds to their vibe. It was my first time catching their … Read More Allah-Las | Echo Park Rising | 8/15/14

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

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

Lobster Festival | Port of Los Angeles | September 14, 2013

Every year, since 1999,  the Port of Los Angeles in San Pedro holds a Lobster Festival where families can enjoy mouth watering, freshly cooked Lobster, in a carnival like setting, overlooking the Pacific Ocean. I’ve been before, but when I did, I went for the food, and not the entertainment. Not this year. When I saw that Dead Sara was slated to headline the Saturday evening entertainment, … Read More Lobster Festival | Port of Los Angeles | September 14, 2013
