Anderson East @ The Hotel Cafe

Anderson East | Hotel Café (Los Angeles, CA) | June 25, 2015 | Sometimes entries on my music calendar can extend as far out as eight months: when a must-see show pops up on my radar, that puppy gets noted in order to block out and dissuade any other potential options. While not as far out as the eight month […]

Tokio Hotel @ Viper Room

Tokio Hotel | Viper Room (West Hollywood, CA) | January 15, 2015 | A lot of secret things happen in Los Angeles each night, that is unless you’re a super fan.

How To Dress Well | The Echoplex (Los Angeles, CA) | August 22, 2014 | There’s a good chance that you will do one of three things at a How To Dress Well show: dance, cry or make out.

Night Terrors of 1927 @ The Troubadour

Night Terrors of 1927 | Troubadour (Los Angeles, CA) | July 10, 2014 | If there was a band that needed a full length album for sale after their show, it would be Night Terrors of 1927.
