THE BRIAN JONESTOWN MASSACRE + MYSTIC BRAVES @ THE TERAGRAM BALLROOM

The Brian Jonestown Massacre shows are noted for their extremes: sprawling psychedelic jams, abrasive noise squalls, and singer/songwriter Anton Newcombe’s biting and often brutal commentary. All three were on display on Sunday night, housed in the extreme of a three-hour marathon set. Not that the crowd minded – this was the first of three sold-out Teragram shows for the cult legends, and their eccentricities (including Newcombe’s lectures on song requests being for “pathetic cowards”) were met with rapturous applause.

BIG BLACK DELTA + FARTBARF + HUNNY + MARC BAKER @ THE REGENT THEATRE

Jonathan Bates, the man behind Big Black Delta, brought some electrifying tunes from his new album Trágame Tierra to the dance happy crowd of The Regent for a special evening. Bates and his band packed a few special treats, including being joined by the fantastic Mereki to help on vocals for a couple of songs.

LAMB OF GOD + CLUTCH + CORROSION OF CONFORMITY @ FOX THEATRE POMONA

Never ones to disappoint, Lamb of God gave a show of nonstop energy and aggression. The 75 minute set was a never-ending cardio workout for both the audience and lead singer, Randy Blythe, consisting of a healthy mix of both new tracks and classics from Lamb of God's early years. Blythe’s barking vocals, constant running about the stage and leaps through the air make a Lamb Of God show something to be seen firsthand.

REFUSED + THE COATHANGERS + PLAGUE VENDOR @ THE FONDA THEATRE

we still believe that music is something more than just cheap entertainment. Music should be something more than just a soundtrack to Friday night. Music should fucking liberate. Music should be a drug enforced to change the world and your world and everything around you.

MOVING UNITS + BILLY CHANGER + VISION + GLASS SPELLS @ THE TERAGRAM BALLROOM

Indie dance punk band Moving Units played a very tight set, heavy on synths, beats and samples. Blake Miller (vox/guitar/keys) Mike Delgado (bass/keys) and Danny DeLeon (drums) fueled the crowd with its high energy. Songs were played off Moving Units brand new album Damage With Care.

BUZZCOCKS + RESIDUELS @ THE MAYAN

Whether or not this is the last time the Buzzcocks will play here, the frenzied crowd reacted like it was. The floor was packed and 20 somethings started the circle and happily slammed and danced the entire evening, especially to the encore filled with Singles Going Steady classics like "Orgasm Addict" and "Harmony in My Head." Thank you to Pete Shelley, Steve Diggle, Chris Remington, and Danny Farrant.
