New Music Friday

Tame Impala “Currents” The trippy Aussie rockers discover that’s it’s cool to dance too.  Think of a mixture between Pink Floyd, ELO and Prince and you might have an idea of where they’re heading.  This might not be their breakthrough record but it’s still going to bring in many new fans and still keep their […]

Get Out

Disneyland turns 60 this weekend.  But don’t go to the park.  It’s going to be insane.  Instead pay tribute to the Magic Kingdom by seeing one of these artists that in some small way have contributed to the success of the happiest place on Earth. Earth, Wind & Fire playing with Chicago at The Forum […]

Beats 1 The Honeymoon period

President’s traditionally get 100 days grace period when the first take office which I think is why Apple Music is giving us 90 days free before we decide to pay for the service.    Here is what I think might happen once the ninety days are over. The big selling point for many has been […]

Revenue may be up for the concert business this year, but artists seem to be falling down, tripping or flat out being ripped from the stage more than ever this year.  The unpredictability of live events is part of the fun of going to shows.  No matter how rehearsed and prepared the artists are for […]

Get Out

Los Angles is now in the swing of summer life.  It’s a time for reminiscing.  If you want to relive the 80s  head out to the ocean for a little “Jungle Love”.  That’s right, the Twilight Series at Santa Monica Pier returns this Thursday with Morris Day.  Yes, 30 years ago before we had to watch […]

SOAK at the Echo

“I feel like Hanna Montana” said Bridie Monds-Watson aka SOAK (it’s a combination of the words soul and folk).  I found this amusing as SOAK was dressed in an oversize black t-shirt and black jeans and hair parted way over her left eye extending to her cheek so you could only see half her face.  It’s […]

No Music Tuesday

This week marks the first week the recorded music industry will release new music on Fridays.  It begs several questions. Why?  The UK released music on Mondays, Australia released music on Fridays.  The US was on Tuesday.  This will hopefully erase the industries fears of piracy since now US fans won’t grab music that was […]

Beats 1

  The good news about Apple Music worldwide radio station is that it’s got people talking about radio and what makes a good music radio station.  Is it just music content? Is it DJs personalities? Is it variety of programming?  I believe Beats 1 is hitting its mark on all three of these traits. Sure, […]
