CALVIN HARRIS DJ SET @ THE MUSIC BOX

June 17th, 2011

You might as well have spritzed me with the latest fragrance because every jiggling skanky ho trying to get in to the show made my eyes tear with their excess of fake perfume. I was really crying that I couldn’t dance to a live version of your first album with a bunch of nerds.

KLAXONS @ THE ECHOPLEX

October 18th, 2010

Maybe it’s that Klaxons have moved on from visual gimmicks. They no longer present themselves as something that happens when you film a DJ Jazzy Jeff and Will Smith 1991 music video in Joshua Tree after eating a handful of shrooms. Instead, their outfits and backdrop reflected a new minimalist direction.

MIGNON @ CRAZY GIRLS

March 10th, 2010

After at least an hour of giggling breasts and gyrating American booties, the petite blonde bombshell from off-shore bounced onto stage full of energy. Giggle and gyrate she did too, but this lady was not just a sight—she was also a sound.

JULIAN CASABLANCAS @ THE DOWNTOWN PALACE

November 11th, 2009

So frontman Julian Casablancas, formerly of Strokes fame, has headed out on his own solo career launching a full tour and EP. He's worked with the Lonely Island crew (cred where cred is due, proper.) and something about Santogold, Pharrel, and him doing a commercial? But for Chuck Taylors, which we all know are pretty much the best shoe to wear like, ever, and it's actually a pretty good jam! So, the props, they are being built. Or whatever you do with props (don't drop them?).

METRIC + SEBASTIAN GRANGIER @ THE WILTERN

June 11th, 2009

I was pleased to see dancing, singing, grinning fans. I grinned too as I looked around at fans voraciously dancing to the beats and melodies Metric spilled into their ears. The venue stepped it up and turned on the rock amps for this band – the fans stepped it up to rock amp time – glitter, ‘nuff said – we’ve passed the counting portion of vodka ingestion – the music sounded perfect – the band played with each musician’s “heart beating like a hammer.” A symphony of hearts. Thank you Metric. Incidentally, I left the venue with no socks on.
