LOLIPALOOZA 2015 @ THE ECHO/ECHOPLEX

The wonderful people at Lolipop Records held its second annual Lolipalooza at The Echo and The Echoplex on Saturday. The sweet vocals of Elizabeth Le Fey of Globelamp got things started on the patio a little after noon and the party ended with Tim Presley and company of White Fence inside The Echoplex. There was comedy, food and many good times as over 30 bands (who most of us know very well) dazzled us with their musical talents.

NIGHT DIVE @ THE AQUARIUM OF THE PACIFIC

If you’ve ever wanted to touch a moon jelly, watch sea otters do endless barrel rolls, or dissect a squid all while holding a beer, then the Aquarium of the Pacific’s Night Dive is your perfect adult destination. With bands playing in both the Great Hall and outside near the Shark Lagoon, as well as DJs spinning tunes amongst the fishes, the 18+ Night Dive fulfills all your musical needs. But, if that’s not enough, there’s art being created on the spot in every nook and cranny of the aquarium, bar/lounge areas, and food trucks to help keep the party going.

VETIVER + DONKEYS @ THE TROUBADOUR

West Hollywood was busier than ever after an historic day for Americans far and wide with the Supreme Court ruling in favor of marriage equality. The streets were overflowing with crowds waving rainbow flags of support in the air. Right in the center of it all was the Troubadour, where a small group had already started to gather inside eagerly waiting for The Donkeys and Vetiver to take the stage.

HEAD WOUND CITY + LOMA PRIETA + CRIME DESIRE @ THE ECHOPLEX

Moshing and crowd surfing were high on the agenda for the fans of Head Wound City as singer Jordan Blilie and Cody Votolato (guitar) of the Blood Brothers, Nick Zinner (lead guitar) of Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Justin Pearson (bass) and Gabe Serbian (drums), both from The Locust and Holy Molar, blazed through their set with unbridled aggression. Blood-curdling screams, mesmerizing bass lines, heart palpitation inducing drum beats, and thrashy guitars added fuel to the fire. Those in attendance at the Echoplex were in for a treat as HWC rarely plays shows and after this one, we hope they continue.
