12072772 10153201093932058 3847234741065839700 n Review: Spirit Animal at Bootleg Theater *emerging alt rock bandLast night I caught alternative rock n roll band Spirit Animal at The Bootleg Bar in Los Angeles. It was a free show and it was totally worth it seeing this emerging band who I think will be on a local radio station by the end of 2015 or sometime in 2016. Their latest song, “Regular World” which they should have finished with, is a radio-friendly upbeat rock song that has some catchy rock vibes that I can see on a KROQ Locals Only playlist. I also loved when they played “Party In The Back” which is an upbeat electro rock vibe and “The Black Jack White” is an excellent dance rock track that can make you feel wild. The lead singer and the band has great energy, even having some simple choreographed dance moves during some of their tunes and really engaging the audience as the lead singer is a wild man on stage, a plus for getting the crowd into your music!

Their upbeat style reminds me of the funkiness of Jack White made a baby with Red Hot Chili Peppers. Stream “Regular World” and “Party In The Back” below.

Tarfest 2015 127 600x399 Review: Tarfest 2015 with Gavin Turek and The SheltersLast Saturday I caught two shows in one day. The first show I went to was a mini-festival free at La Brea Tar Pits called Tarfest. It was the 13th Annual Tarfest and this year they had sexy singer/dancer Gavin Turek headline and emerging psychedelic rock band The Shelters perform before her. We caught these two acts and they were both delightful to the diverse all-ages crowd. It was truly a fun experience going to Tarfest and seeing these two acts so let’s get to my review of them.

Review: Tune-Yards at Santa Monica Pier *Must-see band

tUnE yArDs Santa Monica Pier 2015 12 600x367 Review: Tune Yards at Santa Monica Pier *Must see bandLast Thursday for the final Twilight Concert Series show at Santa Monica Pier, I saw Tune-Yards bring their best under the backdrop of the Pacific Ocean. Tune-Yards dazzled the crowd with upbeat yet unusual beats, weird instrumentals and overall some fun almost ritualistic music that really drew the crowd in to have odd dances. It was a lot of fun watching Tune-Yards perform live and near the last few songs, they all got on percussions and really jammed out drum-style, which I really loved as it got even more people dancing. However this group would be best viewed in doors with a better sound system so if you missed this show no worries, catch them live soon though, they are a MUST-SEE band!

Below are my three favorite songs I heard them perform. (more…)
