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 the chance to buy tickets to their show at the … Read More Hiatus Kaiyote | Skirball Cultural Center | October 30, 2013

Hiatus Kaiyote | The Bootleg Theater | July 31, 2013

Earlier this year, I saw  Hiatus Kaiyote on a whim, and they blew my mind. From Melbourne, Australia, this “future soul” band has a sound that I particularly love. 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 time I saw them, back in March, the band has … Read More Hiatus Kaiyote | The Bootleg Theater | July 31, 2013

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

Nai Palm & Hiatus Kaiyote: Australian Soul

[If you want to read about their show that “blew my mind” click here] Sometimes you can’t find soul. Soul finds you. Apparently it found a group of talented musicians in Australia. Last weekend I went to see Jose James at the Del Monte Speakeasy. I bought tickets for that show online on the venue’s website a few months ago.  I noticed that there was a … Read More Nai Palm & Hiatus Kaiyote: Australian Soul
