TELEVISION + PHOEBE BRIDGERS @ THE TERAGRAM BALLROOM

July 4th, 2015

Although Jupiter and Venus appeared to be close together in the sky, we were actually close to the legendary band Television who made a rare appearance in LA with two sold out shows at The Teragram Ballroom. Ticket holders knew how special this was going to be. We were lucky to be there for the first evening of musical bliss.

ELLE KING + GENE JR AND THE FAMILY + BARNABY COURTNEY @ THE TROUBADOUR

July 3rd, 2015

"The only times to have are good fucking times." That's right Elle King. Well known for her ridiculously filthy song "Ex's and Oh's," from her album Love Stuff, this pistol threw a big birthday bash at The Troubadour (which is officially July 3rd). We sang "Happy Birthday" had some glow sticks, drank and had some good fucking times. "The only times to have are good fucking times." That's right Elle King.

MAUDLIN STRANGERS + SWIMM @ THE ECHO

July 3rd, 2015

"It's burning up Jonas Brothers in here!" cried Jake Hays and then requested that the lights go low. The lights weren't the only thing creating heat on stage at The Echo. Hays' one-man project Maudlin Strangers was on fire as he and touring members played tracks off EP Overdose. Closing with earworm tracks "Overdose" and "Penny" the sold out crowd sang along to the dark indie rock.

FAILURE @ AMOEBA MUSIC

July 2nd, 2015

LA's own Failure celebrated the release of The Heart is a Monster with a free instore and signing at Amoeba Music. It's been 19 years since the classic Fantastic Planet and the new record continues the band's sonic journey without missing a step, numbered segues and all. Although there were previous gigs at the Ventura Theatre and at the Desert Daze Festival, the mini-show marked the first time Failure played Los Angeles proper in 2015 since reuniting last year.
