Hiatus Kaiyote | Skirball Cultural Center | October 30, 2013

Hiatus Kaiyote is one of two bands who I’ve seen perform live 3 times this year. Clearly, I’m a big fan of their music. They blew my mind at the Del Monte Speakeasy in March, and amazed me at the Bootleg Theater in July. Performing for the last time in Los Angeles in 2013, I jumped at theContinue reading “Hiatus Kaiyote | Skirball Cultural Center | October 30, 2013”

Moses Sumney | Skirball Center | 11/30/13

On July 31, 2013, I went to go see Hiatus Kaiyote at the Bootleg Theater. Following the gig, and due to a year long set of fate-induced circumstances, I was lucky enough to hang out with the band for a bit before they had to run to the airport for travel.

As soon as I found out that they would playing in Los Angeles again, I bought tickets as soon as they went on sale. Since the first timeContinue reading “Hiatus Kaiyote | The Bootleg Theater | July 31, 2013”

2013 may very well be a GREAT year for new female vocalists.  I’ve already been smitten by Nai Palm, the lead singer of Hiatus Kaiyote … and now Laura Mvula is looking to squeeze her way into my heart as well. My interest in Laura Mvula had already been stirring and I’ve posted short blog entries about herContinue reading “Laura Mvula | “That’s Alright” (Video and Lyrics)”

The Night Hiatus Kaiyote Blew My Mind At The Del Monte Speakeasy 3/23/13

I saw Hiatus Kaiyote more recently at the Bootleg Theatre on July 31, 2013. You can check out that blog entry by clicking this link. On Saturday night (3/23/13), I experienced what may very well have been an out-of-body, musical experience. I’ve been to a lot of great shows in my lifetime, and each show wasContinue reading “The Night Hiatus Kaiyote Blew My Mind At The Del Monte Speakeasy 3/23/13”
