Amazon has their monthly Artists To Watch list and it’s a good one including  one of my favorite songs from one of my favorite albums this year from Alvvays.  If you love First Aid Kit but need more beats, check out Haerts and if you love Pink Floyd mixed in with Todd Rundgren check out […]

Get Out

  One of the best reasons to live in Los Angeles is the existence of Largo.  Comedy, music, interviews and podcasts, you can always find a good time at the club.  Never does it become more apparent how great their lineups are is when it gets closer to the holidays. The “Ho, Ho Ho” starts […]

Tower Records on Sunset

I just read today that the spot where Tower Records on Sunset used to stand will now become a showcase for Gibson Instruments.  I’m actually happy that the city of West Hollywood is respecting the hallowed ground and history of the location.  I’m hoping Gibson will do it right by promoting new music with showcases […]

New Music Tuesday

I like Dave Grohl.  I imagine he’d be a great guy to hang out with and swap stories over beers.  His eight-part documentary Sonic Highways is fascinating for both the music fanatic and the casual fan.  He really hits all the right notes paying homage to the punk rock/country heroes of years gone by.  The […]

In Defense Of Taylor Swift

Yes, Taylor Swift sold 1.287 million albums last week.  Prior to this album not one artist had accumulated one million sales in total this year.

Get Out with Black Keys and Black Oak

I’d like to think that Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney were bored and hanging out in their Akron homes watching the movie Dazed and Confused when Black Oak Arkansas’ “Jim Dandy (To The Rescue)’ was played and changed their life forever.  It could be true.  Both bands are Southern Blues based bands and both built their reputation on their […]

New Music Tuesday: The Bob Dylan edition

Our obsession with Dylan continues.  It’s like one of those great American myths, like Paul Buyan or Big Foot…only this is true. On July 29, 1966, Bob Dylan was involved in a motorcycle accident.  Since this was before TMZ and the internet, no one knew the extent of the injuries.  Was he dead?  Did he suffer […]
