DEFTONES + YELAWOLF + RITUALS OF MINE @ THE GREEK THEATRE

August 26th, 2016

Everything was perfect. The crowd, the lights, the weather. And of course, the music. A thrust was placed in the middle of the barrier between the stage and the fans, making it easier for Chino Moreno to reach out to the diehards.

PARQUET COURTS + MARBLED EYE @ THE REGENT

August 23rd, 2016

In between songs, the guys contemplated heaven and hell as they bantered back and forth. Parquet Courts had to cancel their Santa show date a few days prior due to a minor head injury to vox/guitarist Andrew Savage, but Savage wore his shiner proudly and gave Los Angeles fans a night they might remember.

Faith No More was back at The Troubadour, but this time with original lead singer, Chuck Mosley (also of Bad Brains' fame). Mike Patton was so cool about the whole thing, he sat on the staircase watching the show.

GUIDED BY VOICES + BRONCHO @ THE TERAGRAM BALLROOM

August 21st, 2016

Two consecutive evenings with Guided By Voices isn't enough. Even if GBV does play around 50-90 songs a night. The Teragram Ballroom was filled with diehards with some who actually sang along to almost every song. This tour's lineup is Robert Pollard (vocals), Kevin March (drums), Doug Gillard (guitar), Bobby Bare Jr. (guitar) Mark Shue (bass), and "Action Bronson" who played tequila. Pollard is a machine with a musical history few can come close to.

August 21st, 2016

During a break between songs, Staples reminded us of her family’s involvement with Martin Luther King and the civil rights movement, stating that “I was there… and I’m still here.” Staples told us that she’s been singing for 60 years and she isn’t tiring yet. Thank you Mavis Staples.
