Smell The Magic Again

The TV Guide

Last night was a busy night for me. Yesterday was Darion’s birthday and while the big celebration is yet to come on Saturday night, he gathered together a small group of friends for dinner at Connie & Ted’s in West Hollywood, CA. Dinner was really great because I got to see a few friends I hadn’t seen in a while and, of course, because we all got to celebrate Darion’s birth. After dinner, I made my way to the Echo in Echo Park to see L7 perform a super tiny pre-tour warm up concert and OMG were they amazing. Last night was seriously one of the best nights I’ve enjoyed in a while. More »

Courtney Love Was Majestic In Ventura, CA

The TV Guide

Last night I made my way up to Ventura, CA to see Courtney Love live in concert at the Majestic Theater. The night before, she performed in concert with Lana Del Rey at the Hollywood Bowl but since I saw LDR play the Hollywood Forever Cemetery last October and I doubt any LDR concert ever will surpass that show, I decided to take a pass and just see Courtney by herself in a much more intimate setting. C. Love has been sober for the past few years and its shown in her life performances. Her concert last night was so fun. She sounded great, she looked great and thank ye gods, she appeared stone cold sober and coherent! More »

Watch: Ryan Adams Performed ‘Summer Of ’69′ By Bryan Adams For The First Time In Concert

B/Ryan Adams
Ryan does Bryan at last

Over 12 years ago, Ryan Adams famously ejected a fan from a concert performance in Nashville, TN after the fan repeatedly screamed out for Adams to perform Summer of ’69 by Bryan Adams. At the time, Ryan would get unreasonably angry whenever anyone would request a Bryan Adams song and the lesson was learned by fans — who didn’t want to suffer the consequences of his anger — never to scream out requests for Ryan to perform Bryan Adams songs. Last night, in Nashville, TN, Ryan performed in full for the first time ever Bryan‘s Summer of ’69. Last year, I saw Ryan in concert in Santa Barbara, CA and it was at that show that Ryan performed the Bryan Adams song Run To You which was, to my knowledge, the first time Ryan ever performed a Bryan Adams song in concert. Now that he’s performed Summer of ’69 at long last, it would appear that his ban on covering Bryan Adams songs is finally over. Click the embed above to watch Ryan sing Bryan‘s song and bear witness to history being made.

The Dead Milkmen Rock WeHo

The TV Guide

My plans to get out of the house and get down to Anaheim yesterday were put on hold due to an emergency involved a pair of very dear friends of mine. Without getting into specifics, I just felt that there was no way I could spend my day at Disneyland while I wondered how things would turn out. I did get out of the house last night, tho, because I had almost forgotten that I had tickets to see The Dead Milkmen in concert at the Troubadour in West Hollywood, CA. I bought the tix for the Milkmen back in December and thankfully Twitter reminded me that the show was last night. I was able to get ready and get out to WeHo in time to see my first Dead Milkmen show ever. More »

A Night Out With The Girls

The TV Guide

Last night I met up with my friends Ollie and Amelia for a fun little hang in DTLA where we grabbed dinner then saw a show. Because we are such big fans of her music and because I was really impressed when I saw her in concert a couple of years ago, we were all very excited to see Azealia Banks in concert at Club Nokia at LA Live. Believe me, I am not a fan of many of the things that Banks says in interviews or on social media but her music is really amazing and her live performances are absolute fire. She was amazing last night, like truly, so I’m glad that we got to see her in concert together. More »

Mac Sabbath Slays, Chvrches Rules

The TV Guide

Last night, I finally got to see the LA cover band Mac Sabbath live in concert and I am very happy to report that it was truly one of the most fun concerts I’d been to in a very long time. Mac Sabbath is a Black Sabbath cover band that dresses as demonic McDonald’s characters. They play up the McD’s theme very well in the look and feel of their shows and even change the lyrics to Black Sabbath songs to make them even better. I went to the show with my friend Eileen and her new man Kevin. Afterward, I hightailed it back to Hollywood to see Chvrches play a late night DJ set at Sound Nightclub … which kept me out until 3AM. Ugh. It was a long but very fun night. More »

FKA twigs Reigns Supreme

The TV Guide

Last night, I met up with my friend Stacey at the Belasco Theater in DTLA to see the utterly amazing FKA twigs live in concert and let me tell you, she put on a breathtaking performance. I got to see twigs in concert last November and I was so utterly amazed by her show that I knew I had to see her in concert again. twigs is one of the featured performers at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival but, thankfully, she decided to play a Localchella show here in LA this week. OMG. She was so good. So damn good. More »

Yelle Slays LA

The TV Guide

Last night, I met up with Darion and Omar at The Roxy to see our absolutely favorite pop star Yelle in concert and we had an amazing time. Yelle is performing at Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival this weekend and next weekend and she booked a pair of LA-area concerts so that fans could see her live without having to deal with the pain in the ass that is the Coachella festival. I’ve been a fan of Yelle for a few years now and I still don’t know what she’s signing … but I do know I love her music and she puts on a fun ass show. More »

Jenny Lewis Rocks The Echoplex

The TV Guide

Jenny Lewis played an intimate pre-Coachella concert at the Echoplex in Echo Park last night in front of a sold out house of very happy fans. Tix for this show sold out in minutes and I was very lucky to score one. I got to see Jenny when she opened for Ryan Adams late last year and I’ve been newly obsessed with her ever since. Her setlist last night included songs from her full catalog — from the Rilo Kiley days to her new album The Voyager. Last night’s show was really pretty perfect in every single way. More »

Bobby Brown Is Reluctantly Going On Tour In Australia

Homie's gotta make some money

Last month we learned that the still-comatose Bobbi Kristina Brown was moved to a long-term medical facility which is better equipped to care for her even tho members of her family have resigned themselves to the likelihood that she may never recover from her injuries. Today we learn that BK‘s father Bobby Brown has finally agreed to fulfill a concert tour commitment in Australia that he has been postponing since February so that he could stay home close to his hospitalized daughter. Even tho he doesn’t really want to go on tour, it sounds like he needs to make some money so that he can continue to pay for Bobbi Kristina‘s medical care. More »
