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

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 […]

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

“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! […]

Stitches: Sunset Strip Music Festival: Linkin Park, Orgy, The Diamond Light, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Finch, Sad Robot @ Sunset Strip/Roxy/Whisky-A-Go-Go, 8/3/13

After near email, outdoor advertising, and social media harassment from multiple angles advertising this festival, I decided to go. It was within walking distance, and I didn’t really have anything else to do that day. I’m not into the whole festival thing, but the Sunset Strip Music Festival is pretty easily digestible. And 2 years […]

Dangertits: Galaktikon @ WesFest @ The Roxy, 3/3/13

I’ve been a huge fan of Brendon Small since the beginning of HardRockChick in 2007. Proof: ->I first learned of Metalocalypse because I vetted the IP for a videogame publisher I used to work for ->I saw Small emcee an event that used to be called the Guitar Hero Championship in San Francisco in late […]

Holidays in the Sun: Camp Freddy @ The Roxy, 12/22/12

Well, we survived Doomsday. I pulled into valet at The Rainbow, taking the last spot available. After dropping by the Key Club to catch Bonded By Blood and Midnight with some friends, I traipsed down the Strip in my goth Barbie attire to an entirely different, yet equally as familiar scene: Camp Freddy‘s annual holiday […]

Ritual: Ghost, Blood Ceremony, Ancient VVisdom @ The Roxy, 2/2/12

“Tonight we’re summoned for a divine cause” I can distinctly remember the first time I listened to Ghost‘s Opus Eponymous. It was after months of hesitation after hearing about it nonstop that I finally caved in. “Deus Culpa”…okay…”Con Clavi Con Dio”…hmmm, this wasn’t what I expected….”Ritual”…I was hooked. It was that natural feeling that I […]

Fan's Addiction: Jane's Addiction @ The Roxy, 7/2/10

When I made the decision to move home on account of my mom’s illness, I wanted to have one last crazy weekend in LA as a send off. It just so happened that this coincided with a Jane’s Addiction club show at The Roxy, and it couldn’t have been more perfect. When something tragic happens […]
