MAUDLIN STRANGERS + SWIMM @ THE ECHO

"It's burning up Jonas Brothers in here!" cried Jake Hays and then requested that the lights go low. The lights weren't the only thing creating heat on stage at The Echo. Hays' one-man project Maudlin Strangers was on fire as he and touring members played tracks off EP Overdose. Closing with earworm tracks "Overdose" and "Penny" the sold out crowd sang along to the dark indie rock. By

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. By

BUTCH WALKER + JONATHAN TYLER @ THE MASONIC LODGE

Butch Walker is the man. He can effortlessly spin a yarn into a song and make you completely forget your troubles. He can move you to your feet with just his guitar and a drum, make you laugh with him and then break your heart with his honesty about the duality of joy and pain. He wielded his humorous self deprecation in one confessional of how he lost his virginity to a Dire Straights tune and hearts were moved as he beautifully closed the show by dedicating the tour to honor his father.

MYSTIC BRAVES + TOMORROWS TULIPS + MR. ELEVATOR & THE BRAIN HOTEL + SO MANY WIZARDS @ THE TROUBADOUR

Bust out the wavy gravy and let the psychedelia flow. The sold out crowd, unplugged and tuned into the Mystic Braves who are the grooviest boys you can imagine, came back to LA to close out their tour. Sporting the authentic style of the 60s and perfectly matching hair, the band infused a new edge to their style of retro music and the fans caught every chance to ride a wave. The flower power on their album Desert Island kept the kids up well past midnight and inspired moshing on every jam. By
