THE AVETT BROTHERS + THE MILK CARTON KIDS @ THE GREEK THEATRE

The Avett Brothers arrived onto the Greek Theatre stage in cheeky style, complete with kazoos and an overabundance of energy for set opener, "The D Bag Rag." The night continued to be one raucous and celebratory ho-down, yet some of the best moments came when the band was able to take it down a few notches.

IGGY POP @ THE GREEK THEATRE

When Iggy Pop asked security to be nice and let a few "poor" people come up to the front seats, there was a rush from Sections B and C to get there after realizing he was serious. The lucky few that were "poor" and made it up front were privy to the great Iggy Pop in all his glory as his sang in their faces.

VUM: EVERYTHING IS IN FLUX

At 9:30 in the morning the hills around Topanga Canyon sparkle, and on the crest of one of those hills sits the cozy little house where Jennifer Pearl and Christopher Badger live and create their music. This is where Pearl and Badger wrote and recorded VUM’s latest Cryptocrystalline, a minimal yet lush set of electronic rock that’s a breakthrough in terms of both sound and vision. Together with drummer Scott Spaulding, they work to combine slinky metallic guitar riffs, vintage electronic sounds and slowly unfolding melodies—sometimes wistful, often menacing. We talked about the band’s grown-up sounds and grown-up priorities in their living room while a Pharaoh Sanders album played on the turntable. Cryptocrystalline is out now digitally and comes out on vinyl on May 3. Portions of the proceeds will benefit the Malala Fund. This interview by Chris Kissel.
