DHANI HARRISON + SUMMER MOON + MEREKI @ THE EL REY THEATRE

December 2nd, 2017

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.

BEACH SLANG + DAVE HAUSE & THE MERMAID + SEE THROUGH DRESSES @ THE ECHOPLEX

November 18th, 2017

Alex and his band are genuine in their songwriting, in their mission, and in their live chops, making them the sophisticated, Replacements-flavored choice for an aging crew of Vans Warped Tour die-hards that still have left-over feelings.

CITIZEN + SORORITY NOISE + GREAT GRANDPA @ THE REGENT

November 16th, 2017

Still, the band continues to emit an infectious bravado further enticing fans with As You Please, their third and most refined record. Known for their melodic, yet "soft grunge" sound, Citizen have truly mastered its craft and it is clearly palpable in the live show.
