While I didn’t catch the entirety of the three acts I saw perform at the Santa Monica Pier for All Hands on Deck, I thoroughly enjoyed this show as it was outdoors with the Pacific Ocean in the backdrop and I got to take an awesome chick to enjoy these upcoming acts with myself. Anyways here’s my review of Kisses, YACHT and Poolside at All Bands On Deck.
First off, I love The Knocks! Secondly, I’m increasingly becoming a big fan of St. Lucia the more I hear their music. Thirdly, I love this collaboration and if you don’t, maybe you don’t like dancing, which is understandable because if you don’t like dancing, that’s probably because you don’t think you know how to dance…. hey dum dum, everybody knows how to dance, just freaking move to the beat of the song!
Anyways, stream this infectious dance/electro pop track below, it’s quite the jam!

The Ranch is an epic live music benefit party, nestled in the Santa Monica Mountains of Los Angeles. In the spirit of the music scenes that came together in LA’s canyons, The Ranch Party allows you to come camp out at the top of Mulholland Drive for a full day & night of LA bands, Artists, DJs, food and drinks. The one-day festival takes place Saturday, music starting at 2pm and goes through the whole night with many emerging acts we are big fans. I’m most looking forward to seeing The Internet (of OFWGKTA), Mansions On The Moon, the drummer from Miami Horror (Good Night Keaton), Tropicool and Zak Waters.
For more details on the event, RSVP on facebook and visit TheRanchParty.com. It’s the best value concert coming up in LA as you can enjoy over 20 musicians in an all-day and night event for as little as $40 ($50 if you decide you want to camp out).
Here’s a 10-track playlist of the songs I can’t wait to hear live at The Ranch.
The playlist above doesn’t even include the chill summer vibes I expect Tropicool to spin, the electro house from Bones, and the trap from Neo Fresco.

Story of the Running Wolf is an electro duo based out of Los Angeles, CA. A little bit retro, a little bit future, they blend 80′s influences like Depeche Mode and Duran Duran with modern electro-dance elements, creating an infectious sound that’s all their own. After playing their first show at a rooftop party in early 2012, the band began developing a live show experience which has been described as a “John Hughes party on Neptune”, replete with neon lasers, make-up, fog and feathers. Their new self-titled EP is available for free download at www.sotrw.com.
They just dropped their first song/video from their debut EP, “Stratospheric”. Stream and download their EP below.

Our favorite hip-hop group from San Diego, Vokab Kompany, has released, “Don’t Owe You” their latest single and video from their upcoming collaboration album with Crush Effect. The album, titled VKCE, drops December 18 and I can’t wait for it. If the previous collaborations with VK and CE are any indication what’s to come between these two exciting up-and-coming acts, then this will be a must-listen album!
