Charles Bradley | FYF Festival | August 24, 2013

To check out pictures of other bands I was able to catch at the festival, CLICK HERE. They call him the “screaming eagle of soul”, and Charles Bradley was one of the reasons I was so pumped for FYF Fest this year. I’m a big fan of the funk the soul music Daptone Records puts out. Even though I’m a fan of all music, if you were … Read More Charles Bradley | FYF Festival | August 24, 2013

Rodrigo y Gabriela | Hollywood Bowl | July 14, 2013

Most of the time, my lust to see a band perform live is satiated once it happens.  After all, the costs of concert going these days can get quite expensive, and I typically like to use my hard earned cash experiencing something new, rather than retread the same territory. There are a handful of acts that I’ve seen perform live, however, that I would … Read More Rodrigo y Gabriela | Hollywood Bowl | July 14, 2013

New Build and No Ceremony/// | First Unitarian Church | April 27, 2013

For the past few years, my sister has been working with BritWeek, helping to curate, manage and execute elements of their art initiative. It was early in the morning, April 27, when I get an email from my sister saying that she had extra tickets for the BritWeek music festival at the Exchoplex that day, and asked whether I wanted to go in her … Read More New Build and No Ceremony/// | First Unitarian Church | April 27, 2013

Toddchella | Part I | Tijuana Tears

House parties in Los Angeles can be hit or miss.  More often misses, than hits.  At Toddchella, I discovered what it takes to make a house party a sure-fire hit (i) have the house party at a really cool location, (ii) have fully stocked bars with bartenders, (iii) have vending machines that dispense party essentials (i.e. lighters, cigarettes, condoms…), (iv) have a free taco … Read More Toddchella | Part I | Tijuana Tears

Toddchella | Part II | The Record Company

Continued from Toddchella | Part I | Tijuana Tears I had noticed people behind me dancing with little LCD light bracelets, and I asked around to see where they got them. I was informed that a photography company named Harmonic Light was taking psychedelic pictures for the party, so I head into the nearby room (with a stripper pole) where they were set up. With … Read More Toddchella | Part II | The Record Company

Toddchella | Part III | We Were Indians

Continued from Toddchella | Part II | The Record Company My buzz was still going, and I kept going to the bar to get more ice for my scotch. I tipped each time I ask for more ice. I never had to wait for ice. Tipping usually works that way. I head back out to the stage area, and by the time I returned … Read More Toddchella | Part III | We Were Indians

The Weeks | Three Clubs | 3/29/13

I’m extremely grateful that my friends – most of my friends – have good taste in music. On 3/28/13, a buddy of mine shoots me a text at 11:22am about a show that he’s planning on going to in Hollywood on 3/29/13.  He tells me that a friend of his is managing a band based out of Nashville called The Weeks.  He described them … Read More The Weeks | Three Clubs | 3/29/13

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 was memorable in it’s own right.  But sometimes, a concert … Read More The Night Hiatus Kaiyote Blew My Mind At The Del Monte Speakeasy 3/23/13
