A second baby was produced by friends Ronnie Vannucci Jr. (drummer for The Killers) and guitarist Taylor Milne. Straight In, No Kissin is the second album from Big Talk and we went directly to homebase for about an hour at The Troubadour.

L7 + SKATING POLLY @ THE FONDA THEATRE

July 19th, 2015

How lucky we are in 2015! To hear Babes in Toyland live once again and now the L7. If you were fortunate enough to attend one or both of the sold out L7 shows at The Fonda Theatre, your wet rock dreams must have finally came true. It was evident why the reunited L7 has been revered as one of the best. The crowd lost their minds during the entire set as Donita Sparks, Suzie Garnder, Jennifer Finch and Demtra Plakas blasted us with one powerful song after another. The faces of the diehards at the rail were red from screaming as sweat poured down their faces. "They rock" was heard again and again after the show.

FUZZ + THE BIRTH DEFECTS + CARLETTA SUE KAY @ THE TROUBADOUR

July 18th, 2015

The night was crazy as expected, with everyone whipped into a frenzy as Segall had complete control on the drums, even though his hands were wet. The one musician who doesn't receive enough attention and should is Charles (Charlie) Moothart. Although he keeps a pretty low profile, Moothart really shines in FUZZ as his meticulous guitar wizardy is a force. Keeping busy with Meatbodies (who kick off their West Coast tour at The Echo, Tuesday, 7/21) Chad Ubovich (bass) completes this powerful trio that create layers upon layers of rip roaring sounds.

RYN WEAVER + SAM DEW @ EL REY THEATRE

July 14th, 2015

Ryn Weaver sang and crouched down to fans in the front holding their hands while making connections. But fans couldn't contain themselves any longer and made a stage invasion, dancing and taking selfies with the indie pop songstress. Her debut album The Fool was just released and she clearly has the vocal chops and stage presence to carry her further.

VERUCA SALT + THE MUFFS + TALK IN TONGUES @ THE EL REY THEATRE

July 14th, 2015

There was no doubt the El Rey Theatre would be packed so we could hear the reunited Veruca Salt once again. There was much love in the crowd for Louise Post (guitar/vox), Nina Gordon (guitar/vox), Jim Shapiro (drums), and Steve Lack (bass). Their latest album Ghost Notes is packed with rocking tunes and heartfelt moments and we were lucky to hear quite a bit of it live along with some favorites.

ROCK N’ ROLL CAMP FOR GIRLS @ THE TROUBADOUR

July 13th, 2015

The mission of Rock N' Roll Camp For Girls is to empower girls through music education. The RCGLA Showcase 2 was held on a lovely Saturday afternoon at The Troubadour. Fourteen bands showcased an original song. No playing covers here. Each band performed their original song written during camp. Also introduced was the music video program where three videos were premiered. The girls picked a band, shot and edited the entire video. Girls from 8-17 really rocked and were inspirational to everyone in the venue. When the girls weren't on stage, they were on the floor supporting the band on stage. They sang along to Desensitized's "Shattered Mirrors" and the Knockouts' "Barbie Doll."
