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 […]

Still Reborn: Ghoul, Black Anvil @ The Roxy, 9/24/14

I have to say I was a little perplexed when I saw that Skeletonwitch, Ghoul, and Black Anvil would be going on tour together. Regardless, I found myself standing under the glowing, rocking ‘R’ with a line that snaked down the block. Perhaps it was feeling thankful the weird stage banter of the opener, called […]

HardRockChick Interviews Peter Hayes of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club

In anticipation of seeing them again at the upcoming Moon Block Party, I present to you my interview with BRMC’s Peter Hayes. HardRockChick: You’ll be playing the upcoming Moon Block Party with some familiar […]

HardRockChick Interviews Led Zeppelin 2

Yes, yes- I’ll be cliche and say Led Zeppelin is one of my favorite bands. And since I’m all about live music and I can’t see Led Zeppelin, I go in search of other means. One of those has been Led Zeppelin 2. When I saw them before, it was such a poignant show/time in […]

How Long: Charles Bradley @ Santa Monica Pier, 9/11/14

It goes without saying that 9/11 will always be a sobering day; one where my generation will discuss in solemn voices where they were and how they felt until our end of days. So I spent this one with the ultimate underdog story… because isn’t that what we all love, as Americans? I have certain […]

Bedlam: Elvis Costello & The LA Philharmonic @ Hollywood Bowl, 9/5/14

I’m pretty sure that the first time I became aware of Elvis Costello was from the movie 200 Cigarettes (which is great, by the way). But I spent the time between then and almost now thinking “not for me”. It was my third time to the Bowl in a week and a half, after seeing […]

Came Back Haunted: Nine Inch Nails, Soundgarden, Cold Cave @ Hollywood Bowl, 8/25/14

It’s March 9th, 1994: my 14th birthday. I am sitting in my bedroom and it’s dark outside. My room is indicative of a girl in transition… exploring. A large stuffed lion adorns a bed with black satin sheets. Glow in the dark stars litter the ceiling. Posters decorate the walls: Kurt Cobain, Jim Morrison, Jimi […]
