December 12th, 2015 by | Alternative/Indie, Electropop |

IMG 5881 600x450 Review: Tanlines at The Fonda *pretty, pretty goodWas Tanlines great live? Probably not, but were they fun to watch and have some songs that are quite catchy? Absolutely! I got to watch them 14 songs headlining to a small crowd at The Fonda Theatre on a Wednesday night and it was a pretty, pretty good show. My favorites are “Slipping Away”, “Real Life” and “All Of Me”. Setlist above, my favorite songs below.

Smallpools live at The Fonda Theatre

November 18th, 2015 by | Alternative/Indie, Concert/Festival Review, Electropop, synthpop |

BEST NEW BANDS Smallpools 700 600x322 Smallpools live at The Fonda TheatreSo after I went to dinner with my parents and my girlfriend for my birthday, I won myself a pair of tickets to see Smallpools at Fonda Theatre in Hollywood and walked over to that show after a fine dining experience from Cleo at The Redbury Hotel.

Smallpools was fantastic live, bringing lots of energy with their catchy indie electro pop jams like “Over & Over”, “Dreaming” and one of my favorites “Street Fight”. I seriously loved almost all their songs in their set, except they need to get rid of their “A Real Hero” cover because they are better than that song and the band that performs that song. They should go back to covering The New Radicals “You Get What You Give” or perform a “Closing Time” cover, that’s always fun.

Anways, here’s videos to my favorite songs performed by Smallpools. (more…)

11258028 190690484600661 1148279324 n 600x600 Review: Walk The Moon, Saint Motel and Holychild at The Greek TheatreThe best concert I attended this year was seeing Walk The Moon, Saint Motel and a bit of HOLYCHILD live at The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles. It was an incredible show mostly because of Walk The Moon, Saint Motel and the perfect weather at the magical outdoor intimate venue of The Greek, where almost a full moon led to an incredible night of catchy tunes.

Even though the show started late and I couldn’t catch all of Skylar Spence’s set because of work the next morning, I still had a great time and discovered a new band I hadn’t heard before, Kero Kero Bonito.

Review: Con Bro Chill, Magic Giant and Monogem at The Troubadour

FullSizeRender 600x338 Review: Con Bro Chill, Magic Giant and Monogem at The Troubadour
Last night I was fortunate enough to get put on the guest list to cover indie electronic folk band Magic Giant who combine the harmonic grassroots elements of folk with some dubstep-type beats in parts of some of their songs. But what makes Magic Giant really stick out is there high energy performances from each member for the 4-piece band. This was my 4th time seeing them live, the first time over a year ago at the first ever (and best) Daybreaker LA when not only did they perform but Eric Sharp played the best morning dance set ever. Listen to that set in the morning and it will bring you the best vibes to start your day. Anyways I’m getting off topic. Below is my review of the show in which I saw Monogem perform a couple songs, Magic Giant perform about 6 songs including an Outkast “Hey Ya” cover and Con Bro Chill bring their neon lights party that maybe showed me what partying in the 80′s was like as every song they performed was about partying.

Review: Jeremy Loops and Brick + Mortar live at The Roxy

CRYR9dmUcAAeQS8 600x353 Review: Jeremy Loops and Brick + Mortar live at The RoxyLast night I got to catch two artists I’ve never seen or really dug deep into to be quite honest. However after the show, I left a huge fan, scanning the internet for as much of their material as possible as Brick + Mortar and Jeremy Loops were two incredible bands that got the party started on hump day last night at The Roxy in West Hollywood. This was the first night of their tour together and both DIY artists really impressed the young millennial audience by crafting jams that were hand-clapping, raise your fist in the air pop/rock fun.
