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

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

Last 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.

Review: Grizfolk at Troubadour *Must-see band!!

February 4th, 2014 by | Concert/Festival Review |

Last Wednesday I saw an incredible indie/alternative band that is quite hard to fit into a specific genre in Grizfolk. This band has an upcoming debut EP, From The Spark, dropping through Virgin Records on February 25th and headlined a SOLD-OUT show at Troubadour that was well worth checking out.

I’m very happy I attended this show as I’ve been intrigued by Grizfolk ever since I heard “The Struggle” last summer and have been craving new tunes from them! Their set went by fast as they never stopped playing the music, only stopping once to congratulate a friend on their wedding engagement. Other than that, this band went from song to song as a set that felt like 30 minutes actually went well over an hour at The Troubadour!

I was recommended this band by a few friends and I’m so happy to have seen them live as they got the crowd singing with their  alternative Americana-rock vibe that is easy and fun to sing along to and yet can get the hipsters moving a bit. I was disappointed by the crowd in not everybody clapping at the last song when the band encouraged everybody to clap but other than that, this was a very pleasant show and I can’t wait to hear their debut EP which I’m guessing was heavily featured in their set last week.

It’s hard to describe their music because at times it felt country folk rock while other times more electro-pop and I highly encourage everybody to check them out because their music feels so unique yet seeing them you eel you are seeing a band that will headline a worldwide tour and perform at festivals all over the world in the near future, Grizfolk is that good live!

Tonight it’s going down at The Troubadour with an underrated hip-hop show put together by Red Bull Sound Select. I’ve been to a few of their events before and it’s always a good time but tonight should be a solid hip-hop show with some interesting local acts.

LA-based hip-hop trio Warm Brew, talented rapper/producer Azizi Gibson, and insightful rapper Thurz, who has broken away from U-N-I to create compelling, poignant solo concept albums, will kick off the night. Renowned Brooklyn rapper and Definitive Jux founder El-P will headline.

The show is all ages and tickets are just $3 for those who RSVP at http://win.gs/1jqfzYC, with all proceeds going back to support the opening local bands.

Here’s some more info below on the artists performing, including a song and/or video I enjoy from them. (more…)
