REVIEW+PHOTOS+VIDEO: Lieutenant | Troubadour | 4/8/15

Nate Mendel has played in the Foo Fighters for the past 20 plus years. In fact, the only person who’s been in the Foo Fighters longer is Dave Grohl. While Dave’s non-Foo gigs, and there are many (Them Crooked Vultures, Queens of The Stone Age. etc) may have received much of the attention, Nate’s musical outputContinue reading “REVIEW+PHOTOS+VIDEO: Lieutenant | Troubadour | 4/8/15”

Jamestown Revival, Nikki Lane & Pete Molinari | The Troubadour | 11/30/14 [Concert Review]

Written By: M. Sloves | Photos By: Derrick K. Lee Prologue: Sometimes you hear people wax poetic about the abundance of vinyl that surrounded them growing up. How their unconsciously cool parents shaped the future of their musical minds with shelves full of Coltrane, Miles Davis, Dylan, Mozart, The Stones: anything and everything rad from the last centuryContinue reading “Jamestown Revival, Nikki Lane & Pete Molinari | The Troubadour | 11/30/14 [Concert Review]”

Jamestown Revival | The Troubadour | 11/30/14 [Photos and Video]

THOUGHTS (Excerpted from M. Sloves’ terrifically written concert review that you can read by CLICKING HERE!): “Straight out of the gates, front men Zach Chance and Jonathan Clay hit the crowd with a tight, well-groomed honky-tonk anthem. Looking like Bo and Luke Duke, working the stage like the gearshift on the General Lee, these hombres haveContinue reading “Jamestown Revival | The Troubadour | 11/30/14 [Photos and Video]”

Nikki Lane | The Troubadour | 11/30/14 [Photos and Video]

THOUGHTS (Excerpted from M. Sloves’ terrifically written concert review that you can read by CLICKING HERE!): “Her South Carolina accent makes her sound a helluva lot older than she looks. It’s a little raspy but not in a French/Israeli “I’ve been smoking since I was 8 years old” kinda way. Nikki probably sounded like this straightContinue reading “Nikki Lane | The Troubadour | 11/30/14 [Photos and Video]”

Pete Molinari | The Troubadour | 11/30/14 [Photos and Video]

THOUGHTS (Excerpted from M. Sloves’ terrifically written concert review that you can read by CLICKING HERE!): “[Pete is] clearly a charming guy and extremely talented. I think he falls into that category of “musician’s musician” – the guy that pro jocks want around when they’re at a recording studio or a house party because he canContinue reading “Pete Molinari | The Troubadour | 11/30/14 [Photos and Video]”

Reignwolf | Troubadour | 8/13/14 [PHOTOS & REVIEW]

About a year ago, a buddy of mine forwarded me a soundcloud link of a band based out of Seattle named Reignwolf. Knowing that he had good taste in music, I opened the link and and this song played:   Whoa. I was like, “Where did this come from, and why don’t I know anythingContinue reading “Reignwolf | Troubadour | 8/13/14 [PHOTOS & REVIEW]”

The Futures League | Troubadour | 8/13/14 [Photos]

Opening for Reignwolf at the Troubadour was an LA based rock band named the The Futures League. It was my first time catching them play, so I didn’t know what to expect, but I liked what I heard. A mix of psychedelic and garage rock, with catchy riffs and a solid groove, it was aContinue reading “The Futures League | Troubadour | 8/13/14 [Photos]”

Snarky Puppy | The Troubadour | 8/2/14 [PHOTOS]

Ever since Snarky Puppy beat my favorite neo-soul band of 2013, Hiatus Kaiyote for the Best R&B Performance Grammy this year, I had to look them up and figure out who they were. I’ll admit … the first video clip  supporting their release of “Family Dinner- Volume 1”. It was Lalah Hathaway singing a song titledContinue reading “Snarky Puppy | The Troubadour | 8/2/14 [PHOTOS]”

Terrace Martin | The Troubadour | 8/2/14 [PHOTOS]

When Terrace Martin invited me to his gig at The Troubadour opening for Snarky Puppy, lord knows that I couldn’t turn that down, especially when he mentioned that Robert Glasper would be joining him. Terrace Martin, Snarky Puppy AND Robert Glasper in one night at a legendary performance venue? Hell, yeah, I was going. IContinue reading “Terrace Martin | The Troubadour | 8/2/14 [PHOTOS]”
