Last week on Monday, I saw 4 different musicians perform in the back of The Mint for what was a packed audience performing hip-hop and electronic music in a crowded intimate space. The artists I saw included Keith Masters, Verbs, Awfully Awesome and Brother Ruxpin DJing. Read my review below.
Earlier this month I caught my favorite electro-pop/new funkadelic duo Das Tapes and new electro-pop band YNGCULT live at The Mint, put together by Hunnypot Radio, which does fantastic free shows every week at The Mint! Here’s my review below.
Los Angeles duo De Lux is back with a new video to “It All Works All The Time”. These guys are a hit in the realm of post punk dance revival acts like Rapture, Talking Heads, !!! (chk chk chk) and Scissor Sisters. It’s very fun laid back music that you can dance to.
Watch “It All Works All The Time” from the Innovative Leisure band De Lux.
Whenever I think of Thurz, I immediately think of the hook in his song, “Goddamn goddamn” and how catchy that hip-hop song is. Last Friday I got to witness Los Angeles rapper Thurz and his band perform live at The Well in Downtown Los Angeles opening for Chuck Inglish (of The Cool Kids) at the Red Bull Sound Select pop-up Show Friday night. It was my first hip-hop show since March and definitely well worth it. Read more below. (more…)
A festival I had an unforgettable experience at because of the art, the underrated music, the hospitality of event staffers and overall fun in such a local scene was Brokechella 2012. Last year I couldn’t attend because of Coachella and this year personally won’t be able to attend but that doesn’t mean I won’t have awesome friends covering the festival for me while I enjoy Coachella weekend 2.
For those in Southern California that can’t afford Coachella and are into more intimate festival scenes, then Brokechella is for you! With over 50 musicians performing and even comedians this year, it’s sure to be a festival worth going to. For $10, that’s less than 50 cents an artist and you know the people of cARTel know how to throw a super fly dope fun event for all. Now it’s in 4th year, Brokechella is sure to be one of the most talked about and underrated events of the season in Los Angeles and I highly recommend any music and/or comedy fan to check it out as you will have as great a time I did two years ago attending this Downtown LA event.
For more info on Brokechella, visit Brokechella.com and purchase tickets here. Because I’m pretty pumped the event has continued for the 4th year in a row, I’ve created a playlist of 15 artists from Brokechella to look forward to including BtB favorites Azad Right, Warm Brew, Verbs and many more!

The title above is the exact subject of how I received the email from this up-and-coming female pop duo from Los Angeles and is exactly how I feel about their music right now. I think I like it but I’m not quite sure. However I feel compelled enough to post it as I love the beat, the chorus in “I Think I Like You” is fun with them singing about how it’s complicated is real cool.
I almost want to wait until the video comes out but this duo SIREN may just have a chance to become real big so it’s probably a good idea I jump on it and post it now before the other blogs forget to credit us for posting this.
Follow SIREN on:
We initially introduced you to Wunder Wunder through “Sure Stuck” which was a very fun track that I wanted to listen to while cruising on a long board through a beach town. Their latest “Coastline” makes you want to ride your longboard skateboard to the beach.
This song makes me want to run to a beach and see how far I go until I’m annoyed by all the salt water and call it quits and say, “fuck sand” as I inevitably will say at some point when I go to the beach. Anyways, shouts to Noisey for premiering Wunder Wunder‘s latest video for “Coastline”, it’s a fun beach rock retro psychadelia type of song that’s easy to enjoy.
Watch “Coastline” below.
Last Friday I saw three impressive up-and-coming bands in New Beat Fund, RDGLDGRN and AER at El Rey Theatre. It was my first time seeing all three of these bands and my first time at the Los Angeles music venue; read my review below.
