Into the Void: Black Sabbath, Reignwolf @ Hollywood Bowl, 4/26/14

Well, it wasn’t the last time! How could a band that is missing their original drummer and played the same set as last year not make me have buyer’s remorse from two very expensive tickets? Two words: Black Sabbath. Two more words: Hollywood Bowl. I’ve learned that, regardless of the hell experienced getting in and […]

Sad Vacation: The Dandy Warhols, The Warlocks @ The Roxy, 4/25/14

Walking into The Roxy, I became enveloped in the familiar wave of reverb. The floor was packed with slightly swaying people, dancing under hues of blue-gray and smoke. It was Friday night in Hollywood, the point where frantic meets freedom. The Warlocks were finishing their set, and I found myself in my usual spot. The […]

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

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 […]
