HardRockChick: 2007-2015

From Joan Jett to Jimmy Page, it is time to close the doors on this 8 year adventure. In it’s simplest form, it was a blog about going to see live music. At it’s most complex, it was about my life through the lens of live music. It captured the feeling of being at nearly […]

Zoso: Jimmy Page in Conversation with Chris Cornell @ Theater at the Ace Hotel, 11/12/14

I stood under the bold, bright lights of the marquee clutching my ticket. Dressed up and wishful, this was a night my imagination couldn’t have created on it’s own. Lots of familiar and famous faces lingered nearby, but all were equalized as fans, with the fervor of energy an undecipherable pitch. I don’t think anyone […]

20th Century Boy: Scott Weiland & The Wildabouts @ The Troubadour, 11/3/14

It’s 6:30pm and I’m ravenously eating my first meal of the day. Sitting at the bar at the famous Dan Tana’s, I’m squeezed between an awkward Seeking Arrangement-type date, old music industry execs gossiping about the same show we were about to go to, hanging onto what’s left of the dream, and Little E. Remember […]

Bad Vibrations: Moon Block Party w/ The Black Angels, The Black Lips, Deap Valley, Band of Skulls, and Tinariwen @ Pomona Fairplex, 10/18/14

I’ve seen bands all over the world- in basements, on rooftops, in bar corners, in stadiums, in fields, on boats… but you can not pay me to go to Coachella, Lollapalooza, Bonaroo. The festival experience is counterintuitive to my picture-perfect world view of how the live concert experience should be. But occasionally I am compelled […]

Thank You: Robert Plant & The Sensational Space Shifters @ Hollywood Palladium, 10/7/14

If the sun refused to shine, I would still be loving you. When mountains crumble to the sea, there will still be you and me. ~”Thank You”, Led Zeppelin I have often said that I have spent my life watching pieces of the bands I love, because I missed out on their heydays. Tonight would […]

Something: George Fest @ The Fonda Theater, 9/28/14

I got locked out of the sale for these coveted George Fest tickets not once but twice as the show got moved from the El Rey to The Fonda to make more room for fans. But after perusing secondary market sites and getting sticker shock, I tried the site one last time on a random […]

Feel: Big Star 3rd and #1 Live to Benefit the Autism Think Tank, Wilshire Ebell Theater, 9/27/14

I am not ashamed to admit that I’m pretty sure I hadn’t heard of Big Star before the above documentary. It’s great and tragic, in that Anvil: The Story of Anvil kind of way, but without the happy ending. My husband, however, is a huge fan, and we found ourselves getting comfortable in a seat […]

Heaven: Heart @ LA County Fair, 9/26/14

Hell is traffic going East on the 10 on a Friday at 5p. You’d think there was a tsunami coming and everyone was fleeing inland. A pit stop to pee at In N Out made it seem like it’s the only place on Earth left to grab a burger. It’s not that great and it’s […]

In My Time of Dying: Led Zeppelin 2 @ House of Blues Sunset, 9/26/14

As we get older, we inevitably experience more death. The world around me seems to change at a pace that I can’t keep up with, things are being reinvented that don’t need to be, torn down that shouldn’t be, and reimagined completely incorrectly. If only I still had my Contempo Casual threads to show kids […]
