GLASS ANIMALS + JAGWAR MA @ FOX THEATRE POMONA

April 21st, 2017

Unless you could see the cast on lead singer/guitarist Dave Bayley's leg, you would never know he was sporting a broken one. He was his usual animated self, dancing and grooving to the music emanating from him and his bandmates of Glass Animals.

Fresh off of a Coachella weekend one performance and their first appearance on US soil in over a decade, Australian DJ/production collective The Avalanches played their first LA show ever with a full band last night at The Fonda.

KING GIZZARD & THE LIZARD WIZARD + ORB @ THE ROXY

April 19th, 2017

Stu and the boys took the stage shortly after and the crowd simultaneously exploded into a sweaty, cramped, painful, yet perfect hell-hole.

TWIN PEAKS + HINDS + THE MEMORIES @ THE REGENT THEATRE

April 19th, 2017

The best live bands are super tight and well-rehearsed, but hide that fact with a deceptively sloppy “house party” presentation. This is Twin Peaks to a T. They look like they just rolled out of bed, they’re kicking beers out into the crowd, and have nicknames like Big Tuna, all of which distract you from the fact that not only are these guys blowing your eardrums out—they’re ripping!

BANKS & STEELZ + ZIPPER CLUB @ THE EL REY THEATRE

April 19th, 2017

Lots of shrilled screams from females (and a male) professed their love for Banks. RZA took it to another level when he sprayed us with champagne and then poured shots of vodka for lucky ones in the front row.

CAR SEAT HEADREST + PREOCCUPATIONS @ THE REGENT THEATRE

April 19th, 2017

“I’m not some piece of teenage wildlife,” Will Toledo of Car Seat Headrest sang during the song he chose as the encore for his sold-out show at The Regent. “Teenage Wildlife” is a David Bowie song—not Toledo’s—though you would never know it.
