sturgill Sturgill Simpson at The Wiltern *my first country concert!So I’m honored to share that I attended my first “country” concert as I saw alternative/folk country artist, Sturgill Simpson slay at The Wiltern last Wednesday! Even though he is considered a country music artist, he jammed out for over 2 hours performing large chunks of his discography which includes covers to Led Zepellin, The Allman Brothers, Nirvana and much more!

Hidden Gem: Cobi *emerging soulful pop act similar to Hozier!

unnamed 576x600 Hidden Gem: Cobi *emerging soulful pop act similar to Hozier!Shout out to Go Lightly Media who keeps pitching me really talented emerging artists and the latest I present to you today is Cobi. His first single, “Don’t You Cry For Me” has garnered over 15 million streams on Spotify since debuting in May and I love the track!

Cobi reminds me of three other emerging artists I really dig in Hozier (similar voice and production), Leon Bridges (similar soulful vibe) and Jamie N Commons (similar instrumentals and arranging). I think Cobi can achieve similar success as these artists and even rise to heights beyond what they’ve currently achieved and I love Leon Bridges and Jamie N Commons!

Los Angeles catch me enjoying the soulful vibes of Cobi and Australian indie folk-rock band Boy & Bear at Teragram Ballroom this Wednesday November 2nd. Highly recommend this show as I’m a new fan of what Cobi is putting out there and a HUGE FAN of the headliner, Boy & Bear, who remind me of a mix between The War On Drugs and Houndmouth.  Stream “Don’t You Cry For Me” and “Prophet Story” from Cobi below.

Review: Judah & The Lion at The Troubadour *high energy

October 5th, 2016 by | Alternative/Indie, Concert/Festival Review, Rock |

IMG 8636 600x399 Review: Judah & The Lion at The Troubadour *high energyLast week I saw alternative folk rock band Judah & The Lion tear the roof off with amazing energy at The Troubadour in West Hollywood. It was a great show not only because we were front row and got high-fives from the band, but they were a lot of fun live. For the songs I didn’t know, I learned fast with catchy hooks that they encouraged the crowd to sing along with. And for the songs I knew, I enjoyed the crap out of them, singing, jumping and hollering at all the fun energy they were putting out on stage at the famous Troubadour. It was one of the best shows I’ve seen there and I highly recommend catching this indie band live, they are from Nashville so you know they can jam!

Here’s “Kickin’ The Leaves” which they opened with, and their single “Take It All Back” off their new album Folk Hop N Roll, produced by Dave Cobb. Look up Dave Cobb, the other artists he’s produced have gone onto win awards and are all great acts, Judah & The Lion deserves the same exposure and credit for being really fun nice dudes and awesome live.

Young Creatures Live at The Bootleg Bar

November 19th, 2015 by | Alternative/Indie, Chill/Jam/Reggae, Concert/Festival Review, Rock |

IMG 5809 600x450 Young Creatures Live at The Bootleg BarLast night I watched indie psychedelic rock band Young Creatures entertain us with some tracks at their show at The Bootleg Bar. I thought they started the set off strong with some of their more memorable tracks like “Give Me A Reason” and “Fear All The Things”. This is a quality band to see in LA, I hope they  can open for some really big psych rock band to give them more exposure.

Listen to their album below, the first two tracks are my favorites.

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: Hozier at the Theatre at Ace Hotel *great band, great voice

October 22nd, 2015 by | Concert/Festival Review, Music Video, Pop, Rock |

Hozier ANW Picture2 600x397 Review: Hozier at the Theatre at Ace Hotel *great band, great voiceHozier is not the best musician I’ve seen live but he is a crowd pleaser, get’s everybody involved in singing along to his tunes and has a great band backing a great voice. I had the pleasure of getting on the guest list for Live From The Artists Den production of Hozier live at Ace Theatre in Downtown Los Angeles. Hozier performed over 12 songs including an Ariana Grande cover which turned into a mashup with Warren G’s “Regulate”, it was really awesome to sing along to. Also his pleasant cover of Paul McCartney’s “Blackbird” was beautiful as were his original songs from the Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter. He was magical on stage and I recommend seeing Hozier live. (more…)
