The trio made up of Treach, Vin Rock and DJ Kay Gee kicked off the night with one of their biggest hits, “O.P.P.,” followed by a tribute to other hip-hop artists over the past several decades, including Run-D.M.C., Biz Markie, The Beastie Boys, Tupac and The Notorious B.I.G. (aka Biggie Smalls) among others.

HARRIET + CLARA-NOVA + KOREY DANE @ THE TROUBADOUR

January 31st, 2016

It’s been four years in the making, but L.A.’s very own Harriet had reason to celebrate with the release of its first full length album American Appetite at a sold-out Troubadour. The quartet, led by lead singer/guitarist/keyboardist Alex Casnoff and his pitch-perfect falsettos, kept the energy high and upbeat throughout the evening in front of an enthusiastic crowd. Despite the demands for more music following the end of their set, music lovers would have to settle for two encore songs from Harriet to whet their American aural appetites.

DAWES + VETIVER @ THE THEATRE AT ACE HOTEL

January 25th, 2016

Soul rockers Dawes kicked off their 2016 tour dates in grand style at the majestic Theatre at Ace Hotel. The band continues to tour strong in support of last year’s release All Your Favorite Bands, playing most of the album during their set. Sitting in with the band for much of the latter part of their set was session guitarist and master of the pedal steel Greg Liesz, which included a cover of The Waterboys’ “Fisherman’s Blues.” Dawes ended the night with a medley of the album’s title track that bled into a tribute to the late great David Bowie with a cover of “All the Young Dudes.”

BULLETPROOF STOCKINGS @ THE MINT

December 27th, 2015

Yes, they are all female, which isn’t unique in itself, but the fact that the four women that comprise Bulletproof Stockings are Chasidic Jews and the world’s first all-female Chasidic rock band at that precludes them from singing or dancing in front of other Jewish men in accordance to kol isha. Their shows are meant to serve as a safe place for women to sing, dance and enjoy their music without prejudice.

As the year comes to an end, so does the band known as As Tall As Lions, playing their last two shows ever in Los Angeles before sold-out crowds at The Teragram Ballroom. It was a bittersweet final night that doubled as a reunion and farewell tour, bringing some fans to tears, while others — some who traveled from across the country — were overjoyed just see their favorite band one last time. The group will play its final two shows back in their hometown of New York.
