365 Songs in 365 Days: A Woman’s Commitment To Sing

I feel like I do a good job at picking friends whose passion for music is as strong as, or greater than, mine. In fact, for some of them, the music is actually in their blood. Literally. Tina Watkins is a friend of mine since elementary school (her brother was in my 6th grade class). I remember going to her parent’s house and hanging out … Read More 365 Songs in 365 Days: A Woman’s Commitment To Sing

How To Dress Well | The Roxy | 3/18/14

  The first time I saw Tom Krell p/k/a “How To Dress Well” perform live, I thought to myself, “I really need to see him perform in an intimate club venue.” On March 18th, at The Roxy Theatre, I got my chance. What intially hooked me to How To Dress Well’s music was twofold. First, the music leaned dark, simple and atmospheric; the kind of music … Read More How To Dress Well | The Roxy | 3/18/14

The Weeks | The Satellite | 2/21/14

The last, and first, time I got to hang out with the fellas from The Weeks, I got drunk, rocked my face off and got late night taco-truck tacos with some of them after the gig. This time, I decided to take a more professional approach. I had asked for permission to take some pictures during their sound check and show using a DSLR camera … Read More The Weeks | The Satellite | 2/21/14

Shy Girls | The Spare Room and Bootleg Bar | 12/12/13 and 12/13/13

I was driving around town while listening to KCRW when the silky vocals and opening keyboard chord progression of a smooth jam gently flowed through my car’s speaker circuits. A rhythm guitar stealthily crept in, sweeping into a late 80’s, early 90’s, drum program with a subtle flourish line added to the chords that caught my attention. I know it’s dangerous to fiddle with … Read More Shy Girls | The Spare Room and Bootleg Bar | 12/12/13 and 12/13/13

Iron & Wine | The Orpheum Theatre | 10/31/13

I didn’t have much of a social life during law school, and that’s probably a good explanation as any as to why my music collection tends to lack albums released during that time of my life. Insofar as I didn’t have a television during that time, and the only recordings I listened to were recordings of lectures explaining aspects of civil procedure or property … Read More Iron & Wine | The Orpheum Theatre | 10/31/13

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. The lead singer, Nai Palm, was hanging outside with KCRW DJ, Jeremy Sole, and another … Read More Moses Sumney | Skirball Center | 11/30/13
