ALLAH-LAS + THE TYDE + DRUG CABIN @ THE TERAGRAM BALLROOM

August 2nd, 2015

Surf's up! Allah-Las has a very dedicated and loyal following, as fans made sure to get as close as possible to the stage. Allah-Las came out to uproars from the crowd and quickly showed their might. With the lights low and psychedelic patterns projected onto the stage, the psych rock stalwarts did not disappoint. Blasting through a 15 plus song set with little downtime in between songs left the crowd very hot and sweaty, but extremely happy.

MOSES SUMNEY + OKAY KAYA @ THE ECHO

August 1st, 2015

With thuds of bass rattling the floor of The Echo from another show below at The Echoplex, Moses Sumney's delicate melodies were still able to envelope the people in front of him. After performing around the world and opening for artists like Sufjan Stevens and an upcoming show with St. Vincent and Erykah Badu at the Hollywood Bowl, Sumney was greeted warmly back home. It was Sumney's first non-free headlining show in LA. "Then I remembered... I need to eat."
