Review: The Dustbowl Revival at The Mint *must-see band!

October 26th, 2013 by | Alternative/Indie, Concert/Festival Review |

One of the most underrated live bands is The Dustbowl Revival. The Venice beach collective plays a variety of music from old school country honkey tonk to indie rock to catchy pop. There’s nothing Dustbowl Revival can’t play and they seem to always prepare a different set for each performance they do bringing on various musicians as well. It was also the violinist’s birthday so there were many violin solo’s which you don’t see very often and was quite awesome. Read more below. (more…)

Review: Houndmouth live at The Mint *alt folk up and comers

October 13th, 2013 by | Concert/Festival Review, Music Video, Rock |

Last Wednesday, my brother and I caught Indiana folk rock band Houndmouth at The Mint in West Los Angeles. The Mint invited us out and knew I would love the harmonized vocals and positive energy that Houndmouth displayed throughout the set.

Although at times it felt like I heard songs more than once because some of their tunes sound similar, overall I felt encouraged to sing along to many of their tunes because the whole band was singing, which I loved. A quality show on a weeknight, if you happen to see Houndmouth on a lineup at an event, I highly recommend checking them out, especially if you dig folk music. As someone whose never been too much into folk, Houndmouth is one of my few exceptions as they have an upbeat vibe or at least understand that if everybody in the band sings along, their audience will be encouraged and enjoy to sing along with them, it’s fun.

Watch videos to “Penitentiary” and the single off their debut album, From The Hills Below The City (iTunes), “On The Road”.

Review: PK live at The Mint

January 24th, 2012 by | Concert/Festival Review, Rock |

Last Friday, I saw PK rock out at The Mint in West Los Angeles. The Mint is an intimate bar/nightclub and with around 75 people at the show, so this picture wasn’t taken from the show I attended.

PK didn’t disappoint and was probably one of my favorite indie rock acts I have seen live! I highly recommend catching them in concert if they are in your area as they make upbeat indie rock, jamming out with three guitarists and a lead singer with unique vocals to take them to the top.

PK is probably a song placement away from becoming a mainstream hit, I enjoyed just about every song they did live and hope recommend you listen to all their music and support like/follow them on facebook and twitter. Here’s my favorite song which they ended the night with, “London”, which we featured on our 1st edition of Best You Never Heard back in September 2010!

I hate leaving you with only one song from the band, so here’s their latest song, “Not In Love”, a cover of the original from Crystal Castles/Robert Smith.
