REGGIE WATTS + THE COOTIES @ THE TERAGRAM BALLROOM

Reggie Watts and his off-beat brand of comedy and music stylings have confounded yet entertained audiences for years. The irreverent showman, now the band leader for The Late Late Show with James Corden, took fans on a bizarre and hilarious journey at The Teragram Ballroom. Much like Tim and Eric and The Kids in the Hall, appreciating what Reggie Watts does is an acquired taste. But those able to appreciate the complexities of what he brings to the table are always in for a satisfying treat.

BAIO @ THE EL REY THEATRE

A snippet of Thin Lizzy's "The Boys Are Back in Town" marked Baio third LA appearance since last September's sold out show at The Echo. The solo project of Vampire Weekend's Chris Baio gave fans more room to dance along inside the historic El Rey Theatre. The set was a jaunty mix of new material and songs off debut album The Names, a wonderfully earnest entry of 80s electro-pop. Evoking the atmosphere of a beach side dayclub, Baio's live show now features new visual projections in addition to him sporting his dapper white jacket and velvety vocals swaddled in reverb.

UNKNOWN MORTAL ORCHESTRA + LOWER DENS @ THE FONDA THEATRE

Unknown Mortal Orchestra proved to the sold out crowd at the Fonda Theatre what great musicians they are. They kicked off their set with Ruban Nielson (guitarist/singer) singing the syncopated verses to “Like Acid Rain” off their most recent album Multi-Love. During “From the Sun” the crowd went wild when Nielson launched into an epic solo. At the end of “How Can You Luv Me,” drummer Riley Geare showed off his chops with a solo filled with plenty of drum rolls and crashing cymbals. Keyboardist Quincy McCrary got in on the action - dazzling the crowd with a jazzy piano rendition of “Ffunny Ffrends." The crowd clapped their hands and sang along to the distinct and catchy melodies of Multi-Love. UMO wrapped things up and got extra groovy with “Can’t Keep Checking My Phone."
