“Dawn of creation blessed in devotion Love, lust, spaces in time bringing colours to life Spectrums defy us left to remind us Love, lust, spaces and time bringing colours to life” ~”Colours to Life”, Temples I was standing at the entrance to The Roxy waiting for my friend to walk in when the lavender-haired girl […]

Spill Your Guts: Ghoul, Iron Reagan @ The Roxy, 4/13/14

“Where are you going?” “What is The Roxy?” “Would you like a piece of gum?” “Would you like to hear some music?” “Would you like to have the windows up or down?” “Did you have a good day?” “What kind of music are you going to see?” Ugh, uber driver… please STOP TALKING TO ME! […]

I Know How To Die: Motörhead, Graveyard @ Club Nokia, 4/11/14

Ugh, that dreaded sound… 8 years into this, and I made a rookie mistake of showing up to the gig for a “hometown” show for one of the bands and having to wait in a monstrous guest list line, the kind of line where people are trying to charm the ticket counter attendees with stories […]

Metal Alliance Tour: Behemoth, Goatwhore, 1349, Inquisition @ House of Blues Sunset, 4/5/14

Once again, I got to bring an extreme metal piece to the masses on! A side note: The night before I watched The Conjuring.  Scary flick.  But what made it even scarier was immediately after watching it, I went to my closet to change clothes for bed… AND A CRUCIFIX FELL OFF MY DOORKNOB […]

Mind Control: Truckfighters, Crobot @ The Satellite, 3/18/14

I am constantly on the search for the right vibe. Once upon a time, when I was in elementary school, a parent-teacher conference revealed that I excelled in all areas of standardized testing except for being able to determine the Main Idea. My how those times have changed. I think one of my biggest personal […]

Bad Reputation: Joan Jett & The Blackhearts @ The Roxy, 3/16/14

I was sitting at my computer on Valentine’s Day when I got an alert that Joan Jett & The Blackhearts would be playing The Roxy, and was immediately on sale. Freak out! I pounced on two tickets for my lover and I, and V-day was off to a brilliant start. A month later, and I […]

Lay Your Ghosts to Rest: Between the Buried and Me, Deafheaven, Intronaut @ The Glass House, 3/12/14

I knew I needed 2 things: 1) to get out of town 2) to immerse myself in a metal show Pomona may have not been what I was thinking, but the metal show part definitely was. With the SXSW vortex in full effect, it is sometimes hard to believe that live music exists outside of […]

Glamorama: Hammered Satin @ Viper Room, 3/6/14

My closet is organized like a record store. The metal section is vast: black, spiky, leathered ensembles which, upon close inspection, could probably tell stories of fake GWAR blood and real Watain blood. The rock section is sizable; a rainbow of band shirts vintage, new, hand cut, torn….striped pants, pants with ties up the sides, […]
