Review: Cut Copy opens up Red Bull’s #30DaysInLA

On Saturday November 1st, Red Bull Sound Select’s #30DaysInLA kicked off with Australian dance pop/rock band Cut Copy headlining a fantastic show at the Downtown Los Angeles Luxe Hotel parking lot across the street from LA Live. I absolutely love Cut Copy, they are in my top 5 favorite artists I’ve seen live with their upbeat, catchy fun dance tunes and lyrics that are easy to sing along to and uplifting.

I loved almost every single song they played and after seeing them for the first time since 2011, I was so excited to be able to take my close friend @MikeRips, who saw Cut Copy with me back at Pacific Festival 2011 so I knew I had to invite him again. Thanks to Grandstand Media for hooking me up with press passes and I can’t wait to attend further Red Bull Sound Select shows in LA this month and beyond!

Below are a few must-listen Cut Copy tracks. (more…)

So we are soon approaching something very awesome in LA featuring over 60 musicians in a 30 day period in November. Starting November 1st through November 30th, Red Bull Sound Select has put together 30 concerts showcasing various talents and I can’t be more excited. My coworkers at The Grammys and I have been talking about this constantly about what shows were going to, as I’m really excited not only because of the musical variety that RBSS has curated during the month of November but highlighting local acts that need more attention and curating shows at venues all over this vast city of Angels. Below I’m here to tell you which 5 shows you definitely can’t miss! (more…)

As we drove down the 5 freeway headed to the Pacific Festival, the excitement level was rising like a hot kettle on the stove. With a loaded lineup headlined by Snoop Dogg & Cut Copy and artists such as Calvin Harris, Phantogram, Ghostland Observatory, Steve Aoki, Fred Falke, Bag Raiders, The C90’s, !!! (Chk, Chk, Chk) on the schedule, there was no better place to be on August 13th, 2011 than Oak Canyon Ranch in Orange County, California. Having VIP Backstage access was sure to make it epic. What follows is just that. E.P.I.C.

So were less than one month away to the first-ever Orange County Pacific Festival on August 13, 2011. I’m super excited for this festival as it features many underrated acts and I really respect the fact that the organizers of this festival were able to bring in so many quality acts in their first year of this festival. Here’s a cool Pacific Festival trailer to watch that has more info on the event.

Some of the notable acts performing include Snoop Dogg, Cut Copy, Steve Aoki, Calvin Harris, Ghostland Observatory, Phantogram, toro y moi, Bag Raiders, and many more! Buy tickets here.

America watch out for Cut Copy

February 12th, 2011 by | Electropop, Pop, Remix, synthpop |

Cut Copy are fairly big in Europe and among most awesome music blogs but their popularity isn’t anywhere near where it can be until Cut Copy makes more appearances in the US. They are a synth-pop band from Australia sound like MGMT before their psychedelic album and sprinkled with a little more rock in it. Cut Copy has a very enjoyable sound and it’s only a matter of time until you here more of their music on the radio.

If you have heard of them, hopefully you will find a track you will like that you haven’t heard yet. If you haven’t heard of them, here’s a couple of dope songs.
