TIJUANA PANTHERS + BANE’S WORLD + ENJOY @ THE TERAGRAM BALLROOM

December 11th, 2017

A combination of garage rock, surf rock, and punk, with just a touch of mid-century kitsch, it’s got all the elements that make Tijuana Panthers direct descendants of the punked-out, soda jerk sound mastered by Jonathan Richman and the Modern Lovers. Retro vibes, thrashy drums, and a rippin’ riff are all you need to get a crowd moving—something the Panthers did all night long.

Working together has shown to be advantageous as their fourth effort, Snow, is said to be their finest musical contribution yet and the results can be seen and heard in their live show as it appears a warmer connection amongst the two have been established.

It’s no surprise that Dhani Harrison has a multitude of musical talents running through his veins. The only offspring of the beloved late Beatle, George Harrison, effortlessly rocked the confines of a sold out El Rey Theatre, concluding a series of tour dates in promotion of his debut solo effort, In Parallel.

MOGWAI + XANDER HARRIS @ THE BELASCO THEATRE

November 22nd, 2017

hey leaned heavily on this year’s Every Country’s Sun, with weightless jams like “Coolverine” and “Party in the Dark” setting their sights on the dancefloor rather than the heavens. Not that they can’t hit those heights anymore – bandleader Stuart Braithwaite still burns through fan favorites like “Auto Rock” and “Hunted By a Freak” with the fervor and precision of a hopped-up metalhead, which wasn’t far off from the looks of powerhouse drummer Martin Bulloch’s Thin Lizzy shirt.

BORIS + TORCHE + ENDON @ THE ECHOPLEX

November 19th, 2017

Looking along the front of the crowd, you could see lots of hands pressed to the stage, soaking in the vibrations from the massive wall of Orange amps-even when Wata broke out an accordion or conjured up a field recording, moving in front of the soundsystem would send air whooshing past your face.
