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 […]

Break on Through: Rock Against MS @ Whisky-A-Go-Go, 3/26/14

It was a night that could only exist in LA. The infamous stage at the Whisky-A-Go-Go played host to a night of musical collaborations from dark, dusty corners of different decades and eras of music. And it was all for a great cause: Rock Against MS. Multiple Sclerosis is something you probably have heard of […]

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, […]

Bourgeois Blues: The Last Internationale @ Sayer’s Club, 3/4/14

The velvet rope, sniffling doorman with a clipboard club scene has never been my thing; that said, I have randomly ended up at the Sayer’s Club on a few occasions and recognize that it is a top notch lounge for seeing new, hot acts.  So on a day where I had time to pour through […]
