Silent Hedges: Peter Murphy @ Troubadour, 6/29/11

Silent Hedges: Peter Murphy @ Troubadour, 6/29/11

He struts in place, the goth lord amongst a small contingency of his followers. The Troubadour has housed many icons past, present, and future; I felt in awe to finally be within it’s walls, even if they took my gum away as I walked in…I thought that only happened in San Francisco! But I will […]

On the Prowl: Huntress, Dreaming Dead @ Three Clubs, 6/24/11

“Don’t cause any trouble now, Texas”. Two and a half weeks in and I already have haunts….this was my second time this week to Three Clubs, and I’d been to the Rainbow twice this week, too. I guess I’m still on the welcome wagon/new to LA trip; plus my friend and I were looking for […]

 Moving Pictures: Rush @ Gibson Amphitheater, 6/23/11

Moving Pictures: Rush @ Gibson Amphitheater, 6/23/11

My first memory of Rush went something like this: I was spending the night at one of my best friends’ houses in elementary school. I believe we were wildly dancing around to Bon Jovi when her 4 or 5 year older brother passed by with a friend and made a rare acknowledgement of our existence. […]

“She never leaves her home but she’s real sweet Got her own style, leaves the windows real wide Crosses her fingers after so many years Mascara runs through the tracks of her tears Run run run would you wear that black liner baby” ~’Black Liner Run’, She Wants Revenge I just deleted an entire paragraph […]

X-Plorato: Volto @ The Baked Potato, 6/18/11

This would be my first of hopefully many ‘this only happens in LA’ shows; the type of thing you can generally only see if you live here. Danny Carey of Tool plays in a jazz fusion band called Volto, and they would be playing this tiny place in Studio City called The Baked Potato. It’s […]

HardRockChick Interviews Adam Bravin of She Wants Revenge

June 17, 2011 | I talked to Adam Bravin of She Wants Revenge before their show at the House of Blues Anaheim (right outside of Disneyland!).

Future Heart: Young Widows @ Satellite, 6/11/11

It would be my first solo show outing in LA. There’s something about going to a show by myself to see a band I barely know in a venue I’ve never been to. To me, this is the essence of my blog; it’s what makes me tick. They are called musical adventures, aren’t they? It’s […]

HardRockChick interviews Ben Weinman of The Dillinger Escape Plan

June 4, 2011 | Dillinger Escape Plan guitarist Ben Weinman took some time to talk to me before their one-off midnight show (while on tour with Deftones) at the Beauty Bar in Austin. Topics of the night included the disposable nature of his guitars, DEP’s technical but chaotic live performances, and the band’s “bromance” with […]
