A Whole Bunch of Things

Way back on December 6th, 2006 Christian Cunningham wrote: “So my prediction? Happy Feet will be taking home the Oscar for best animated picture this year. You heard it here first. Ben made it a beautifully lit film, and if it doesn’t? I’m going over to the Academy building and throw eggs at it. You […]

Neko Case Concert No. 8 – Henry Fonda Theater / Music Box

The Flaming Lips at Bill Graham Civic Center

[FLAMING LIPS VIDEO] Spent the day being a tourist with Shine and Jill today before hitting the Flaming Lips show. sonicliving.com was having a little pre-show get together at Jade Bar by City Hall. I called up fellow Flickrer and website friend Willo, of willotoons.com, and she was also headed over to the bar. So […]

Vintage Video: Taylor Hawkins – A Foo Fighter

[TAYLOR HAWKINS VIDEO] I was rummaging through some boxes and found some of the old video tapes. This is back when I was playing in the band with my friend Riz, now of the band “Anyone” [LINK]. Taylor Hawkins was good friends with the band and he used to come hang out and go to […]

Imageworks FX Follies 2006

[FX FOLLIES PHOTO GALLERY] [FX FOLLIES VIDEO] Why is it called the FX Follies of 2006? 70 Years ago, Our Gang (The Little Rascals) produced a short called “Our Gang Follies” of 1936. In this early short, the gang put on a show for their neighborhood, it was a big success and a lot of […]

Concert Double Header: Pearl Jam at The Forum/Sierra Swan at The Viper Room

Hopefully she’s running a little late.First off Pearl Jam, this is the 4th time I’ve seen them so it’s not really a huge deal but when I bought my ticket I got blocked out of the first show on Sunday and while I was fiddling around with Ticketmaster a second show was added right under me…. I actually enjoyed Sierra more than Pearl Jam because I’m kinda burnt on them.Sierra ends her set and since I’m only 6 minutes from The Viper Room I’m able to get home before midnight and into bed I go.

O2 Wireless Festival Hyde Park

GOGOL BORDELLO JUST RULED THE DAY! They were so awesome I loved every minute they were on stage.

Def Leppard & Cheap Trick at The Hammersmith Apollo

Aw yeah… Rock Rock ’til you drop!

Calexico at The Music Box

[CALEXICO AUDIO SNIPPET] Music to sway by. Calexico are sooo good! I’ve been having the hardest time seeing them as they’ve come through town a couple times while I’ve been away or I just couldn’t make it, etc. So finally! The name is taken from a small border town in California, and it’s Mexican side […]

Anyone at The Viper Room

Caught up with my pal Riz Story and the band Anyone [LINK] at The Viper Room tonight. He decided to celebrate his birthday tonight by playing a gig at The Viper Room. I’ve known him since we were five and officially he’s not my brother, but he might as well be. Being a musician’s cool […]

Culver City Hot Rod Show

[CULVER CITY HOT ROD SHOW VIDEO] Culver City is where hot rodding and customizing cars got it’s start. There used to be a speedway in the city starting back in 1924. It was eventually demolished to make way for the movie studios. Um, which is now Sony Pictures where I reside 10 hours a day. […]

Rob Zombie at The Wiltern… Yeeeah!

I rode the bus to concert. Damn right. Proud of it. Why not spend $1.25 instead of $10 for parking. Anyway, Matt and I texted back and forth to coordinate where he was sitting so I could meet up with him. After Lacuna Coil was finished the lights came up and I was able to […]

Kittie at The Whisky

I’ve heard a total of about 45 secs. of one Kittie song and that’s all I know. Matt and Steve were already going so I thought I’d catch up with them tonight and hang out. Matt’s friend Cameron was visiting from Salt Lake so he was there too. I parked my car next to the […]

Storm Large at Molly Malone’s

When a show opens with a song called “What the Fuck is Ladylike?” being sung by girl, I’m there for ya. A couple of weeks ago I got an IM from friend Keith asking if I knew where Molly Malone’s was. It’s only like the closest club to my house. I just walk out my […]

Goldfrapp at the Wiltern Theatre

[GOLDFRAPP – STRICT MACHINE VIDEO LINK] Three weeks ago I was sitting at my desk and saw in the L.A. Weekly that Goldfrapp was going to be playing The Wiltern. I love me some Goldfrapp. So I blurted out “Shit! Goldfrapp’s coming to town!” Little did I know Peter, who sits across from me, also […]

Love, Neko Case… at Amoeba Records

See, Neko Case said she loves me. Just look at that CD cover. Love Neko. It’s plain as day. What you really have to look at though is the the WAY she’s written it. See the “o” at the end? See how it kinda trails off downward? It’s like she’s writing Love Neko… dot dot […]

Abby Travis at Tarfest

[ABBY TRAVIS GALLERY] [BLYTHE LYRICS] Today had one of those “Dude you’ve totally been under a rock while this is going on” moments. There’s this thing called Tarfest every year at the museums and next door at the tar pits. Um, first off, worst name ever for an event. Tarfest! It’s tar-rific! See you at […]

Sheryl Crow Entourage Show at Tower Records

Since I’m not going to any of Sheryl’s shows that are coming up I thought I’d catch her at the “free” Tower Records gig. Last month I caught the New Pornographers at Tower [LINK] and what a difference between the two experiences. That one was great without the whole corporate vibe that surrounded Sheryl’s appearance. […]
