It was the Sunday night before we all begrudgingly went back to the grind of post-Thanksgiving-break life, but you’d never be able to tell from the spirited crowd packing The Roxy. LA’s golden boy RL Grime announced this run of hometown charity shows only days prior and sent people scrambling for tickets. The LA area is used...
On November 4th, our new favorite Australian export Ta-Ku graced Los Angeles with his live music styling’s for the first time. Considering he’s become somewhat of an underground hero, this blew our minds. This Future Classic signee has been creeping into the creative consciousness for several years now but people really took notice with his latest release, the...
On August 23rd and 24th, FYF Fest returned to the neo-chic DTLA with a breathtaking line-up of alt-faves and Kanye West to prove to Southern California –- nay, The World! -- that they know truly know Los Angeles better than anybody else. Packed full of the city’s most beloved food trucks (literally 100's of them) and the hawtest...
For reasons undisclosed and absolutely unacceptable, Frank Ocean has just announced that he is cancelling his appearance at this weekend’s FYF Festival in downtown LA. Frank Ocean is the rarest of the rare. It’s been ages since we’ve heard new music, much less seen him live on stage – this was to be the pinnacle of the festival...
HARD SUMMER returned to the Pomona Fairplex this past weekend with more hype than ever. A killer line-up, a sprawling venue, every respectable food truck in the greater Los Angeles area?! DAMN THEY GOT EVERYTHING. Sure, there were several eye-roll worthy moments, but what festival is without it’s kitsch these days? So enough with the EDM-haters! Here is...
It’s hard to believe that Metric has been at this for 15 years. On stage, they are vibrant and alive with a youthful energy bubbling right underneath the service. They were only opening, so they wasted no time before diving right into hits. They began with the ever-so-fitting “Stadium Love”. It was loud, it was...
It was only the second date of his long-awaited comeback tour but somehow, after a nearly 15 year hiatus, D'Angelo seemed more at home on stage than ever before. The eager audience piled in right when the doors opened at 8:00pm. From hopeful Dads-on-dates to LA’s resident beat king Djemba Djemba – everybody was at Club Nokia...
Festival season is in full swing and this Memorial Day weekend boasts some of the best line-ups of the entire year. From coast to coast, artists are gathering to help us kick off the summer right! Up north, Sasquatch is giving the PNW a run for their money. On the East Coast, EDCNY will be electrifying...
Building momentum over the past few years, FYF has officially established itself as a major player in the Southern California festival scene. And with yesterday's lineup announcement, LA’s cup has truly runneth over. Returning to the L.A. Sports Arena and Exposition Park (with some expected logistical upgrades – fingers crossed), FYF Fest 2015 boasts one of the...
When you're like me and you've gone to your fair share of these multi-day events, specially this big thing out in the desert / polo fields of Indio, you've gotten pretty confident with the amount of knowledge you've collected along the way. For instance, this one holds true consistently year over year: water is God, and no, Daft Punk...
My God, Coachella nailed it this year. Once you read below the headliners (which are totally respectable so stop complaining), you discover a wealth of artists that have put out the best of the best music over the past couple of years. Coming off of 2014’s killer combo of Ellie, Lana & Lorde, we were kinda worried...
It only took seconds for Georgia Nott to hypnotize the entire room. She begins restrained and small--her delicate tone floats in mid-air as she dives into “Never Gonna Change”. From there, the concert comes to life organically. The lights intensify as the bass begins to drone. Multi-instrumentalist/older brother builds the framework underneath her. With a live...
If your musical taste is of the electronic persuasion, all of your dreams just came true. SoCal’s resident merry pranksters, The Do Lab, have just revealed the lineup for 2015’s installment of Lightning In A Bottle, and DAMN is it solid. Known for their super-soaker stage at Coachella, LIB has always offered a more down-to-earth, vibe-driven alternative to the...
As we sailed down the dark, lakeside highway from Tahoe City to South Lake, we read the SnowGlobe Music Festival lineup aloud one more time. From seasoned favorites to fresh, new talent, the best of the best would converge on this small, mountain utopia over the next three days. But to us and our 13,000 new best friends,...
The imagery coming out of France today has been nothing short of horrific. A cell phone video showing the poised, methodical attack in its entirety. The narrow Parisian streets clogged with ambulances arriving at the scene. The cold-blooded killing of an injured police officer laying on the sidewalk dying. Of all of these images, the one...
Break out your faux furs and oversized steez, my friends!! New Year’s Eve is finally upon us and we have the distinct pleasure of ringing in 2015 up in the Sierra Nevadas with the homies at SnowGlobe. This intimate festival is set in the lush winter wonderland of Lake Tahoe, which is not only one of the...
Sound Remedy brought the party to LA's El Rey Theatre last Friday night and ripped through his searing arsenal of remixes and upbeat originals to an insanely enthusiastic crowd of college kids. There was plenty of room to get down, and that's just what we did. At some point he got on the mic and told the adoring...
Christmas came early this morning when Stromae announced several dates across the North America in the spring of 2015. Beginning April 5th in Vancouver, BC, Stromae will work his way down the West Coast with stops in Seattle (4/6), Portland (4/7) and Oakland (4/9). Also announced today is a massive show at Madison Square Garden on October 10, 2015 —-...
Every so often a musical experience comes out of left field and smacks you right in the heart. I had heard one or two of SOHN’s more upbeat tracks at a friend’s house before – I wasn’t familiar, but I was enticed. He impressed me as a lightweight version of James Blake and I wanted to see...
HARD Day of the Dead was definitely the biggest thing happening in EDM over Halloween weekend (and damn there was a lot going on), and our very own Molly Gale went and completely crushed her way through the two full days of #rage. Check out her recap and photos from each day below. --Editor Saturday, November 1st...
"the beauty is not in the method, but in the madness"
Rarely have I been as blind-sided by an artist as I was by the Euro-electro-pop sensation, Stromae. It all began during a routine combing of local venues' calendars. I saw that some guy named Stromae had immediately sold out two nights at the Fonda. My interest was sparked. After some quick research I found that this...
Hide yo kids, hide yo wife... because RTJ2 is coming. If you’re still unconvinced about Run The Jewels, their sophomore album is shaping up to be solid scientific proof that Killer Mike and El-P’s collaboration is the razor-sharp revival that modern hip-hop needs. “Close Your Eyes” is the third heat rock released from the upcoming album --...
Since their inception in 2005, the duo of Simian Mobile Disco have proven themselves as some of the most innovative producers in the industry. James Ford and Jas Shaw have stayed true to analog production techniques and the electronic rock experimentation. Sticking to analog to “prevent their own electronic dance tracks from sounding too polished and programmed”, this...
Following up two shows in a row for me, I was in for a third with my Saturday night booked with Odesza at The Fonda. Hype has been building around this Seattle-based duo since they ignited the itty-bitty Echoplex last spring. That performance got my attention in a very real way – the sound was so fresh and...
In a matter of one year, the UK-based soul group Jungle has sky-rocketed into the consciousness of music fans around the world. Their self-titled album is one of the most solid releases of 2014. Riding on that one album alone, they’re now able to regularly sell out places like The Fonda in LA, and while impressive, this enthusiastic...
What is there even to say about Fatboy Slim? Not only is Norman Cook a pioneer in the electronic music industry, he’s been a mainstay for over almost 30 years. He’s the Godfather. King of Kings. And at the ripe age of 51, Cook is still a rogue firework. On stage, he...
The night was crisp, but not too cool. Nestled into the quiet hills of Hollywood, the picturesque Greek Amphitheatre was a perfect backdrop for Dallas Green’s alt-rock outfit, City and Colour. Disillusioned tales of quiet, personal turmoil and ill-fated love affairs are intensely relatable when told with Green’s evocative lyricism. The crystal-clear weaving of vocals over...
On a Friday night, House of Blues on the legendary Sunset Strip is one of my favorite places to be. In the shadow of infamous hotels, this venue is among one of the most iconic in Los Angeles. News rattled the local industry when House of Blues announced they would have to relocate to make room for...
"The sleek, fitted suit induced libido-fueled wails beyond the human spectrum of hearing."
A comprehensive “Who’s Who” of the electronic industry...
Made famous by James Dean’s classic Rebel Without A Cause, the iconic Griffith Park is one of LA’s most treasured landmarks. Tucked away is the legendary Greek Theatre—surrounded by majestically lit trees and graduated at the perfect angle, its one of the best venues in the city. On this particular Thursday, the demographic was an interesting one....
With a massive new venue and a dignified roster of electronic talent, this year's HARD Summer was perhaps the most anticipated incarnation to date. Selling out months ago despite being located quite a bit further from LA, the dedication of attendees seemed to be doubled as they poured into Whittier Narrows Recreation Area by foot, car, metro and...
"These West Coast darlings create music that is fun and catchy, but they boast the talent and creativity to back it up."
The Oxford electro-rock outfit of Glass Animals has quickly become one of our favorite finds of 2014. Their album ZABA is easily one of the best this year and they have much more on the way. We were thrilled to have the opportunity to catch one of their two sold-out nights in LA earlier this month. ...
The Hollywood Bowl is one of the most famed venues in the country. Elton John. The Beatles. Billie Holliday. Pavarotti. The Doors. Avicii. Many of the most celebrated names in music history have had a turn to take their place under the iconic band shell and look out across the MASSIVE amphitheater. The view has got...
If I were a professional baseball player, this would be my walk-out song ...
One thing we know about Porter Robinson’s new sound is that it is larger than life—a trend that he perpetuates with his newest release "Lionhearted". This feel-good track will definitely be considered somewhat of a “pick-me-up” after the first two tracks we’ve heard off of Porter Robinson’s much-anticipated debut album Worlds. For the record: personally, I loved...
The excitement was palpable in the streets of Downtown Los Angeles last Friday night. Our golden boys of hockey, the LA Kings had just secured the second Stanley Cup title in just three years and as people spilled out of Staples Center, they piled into the clubs and bars lining the downtown streets. An LA native himself,...
There is nothing sweeter than a homecoming show and on Saturday night a few weeks back, 2,000 thirsty fans packed into downtown LA’s best venue to welcome back our golden boys of West Coast electronic music, The Glitch Mob. Ooah, Boreta and eDIT have created a mob of fierce, warrior-type fans and approaching the venue, I could hear, nay, FEEL...
Porter Robinson surprised the electronic world once more this week with the release of “Sad Machine”, the next track off of his upcoming album worlds. A little more than a month ago he unveiled an entirely new sound with the ethereal monster that is "Sea of Voices". Expertly crafted and sophisticated, this new sound was criticized by...
On May 7th, Lorin Ashton aka Bassnectar sent the electronic world in a tizzy by announcing his new 15-track album NVSB (June 24th) and releasing the first track “Now” -- a trapped out party anthem featuring Rye Rye. This track was met with some mixed reviews from the Bassnectar traditionalists hoping for another reincarnation of “Vava Voom” or...
"In an instant, it became a beautiful chaos of color, haze and sound."
After two hot & sweaty weekends on the main stage at Coachella, MS MR and Grouplove brought their Spreading Rumours tour to The Glasshouse —- an amazing venue tucked away just outside of LA’s “splashzone” in the sleepy college town of Pomona. I had seen both artists perform at Coachella (Weekend 1, duh)—and I was thirsty for this...
No matter how strange MGMT gets, we always want more. Despite their latest studio efforts being met with mixed reviews, their infectious sound remains a mainstay in the alt-rock scene. One of the front-runners of “neo-psychedelia”, MGMT formed when Ben Goldwasser and Andrew Van Wyngarden met at Wesleyan College in 2004. Their eclectic sound only blossomed...
