MASSIVE ATTACK @ THE GREEK THEATRE

October 17th, 2014 · No Comments

Photos and words by Debi Del Grande Music v. Industry, LA craptastic traffic, clear to engage, refugees in the millions – like, follow, accept, delete.

THE HORRORS @ THE MAYAN THEATRE

Photos and words by Debi Del Grande Sometimes when bands play new tunes from their new album, it’s a sign to go for a drink or take a bathroom break. Definitely not the case with The Horrors and their latest Luminous. It’s a refreshing album and when a song like “Chasing Shadows” starts the show, [...]

Photos and words by Debi Del Grande Continuing on the Dr. Martens’ #standforsomething tour, I decided to catch Drowners at Stubbs (inside) in Austin.

THE WAR ON DRUGS @ THE FONDA THEATRE

October 5th, 2014 · No Comments

Photos and words by Debi Del Grande With that Dylan-esque vocal style, pedals x 100, and helping create stories with his mad guitar skills, everyone at the second sold out show at the Fonda was transfixed on Adam Granduciel and the talented band The War On Drugs. We last saw them at the Troubadour and [...]
