Spending My Maundy Thursday With †††

The TV Guide

Last night I made the trek down to Santa Ana, CA to see the band ††† live in concert and I am so glad I was able to make the trip. †††, or Crosses if you like, are a new band for me. I’ve heard some of their songs and was impressed by what I’ve heard about their live shows from friends in NYC so I decided to check them out in concert. They played The Roxy in West Hollywood on Wednesday night, which is much closer to me, but because I had tix to see The 1975 that night, I had to settle for the 50 minute drive to Santa Ana. ††† packed The Observatory to sold out capacity and it was clear to see why … they put on an amazing live show.

The Spirit Of ’75

The TV Guide

Last night I made my way out to Club Nokia at LA Live in DTLA to see one of my fave new bands, The 1975, in concert. I totally fell in love with this Manchester, England band last Summer and have since seen them 3 times in concert here in LA. They played Club Nokia last night in between their two shows at Coachella last weekend and this weekend so I figured it would be fun to see them play a tiny club date in between their festival shows. Even tho Club Nokia is not my fave venue in LA (largely due to the terrible sound system and horrible sight lines), I managed to have a great time at the show last night. More »

Chvrches Rock Ventura

The TV Guide

Last night I made the trek up to Ventura, CA to see my fave new band Chvrches live in concert at the Majestic Ventura Theater. Chvrches played the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival last weekend and they will play weekend 2 this coming weekend but in between, they are playing a few small shows in the area to entertain those folks who would/could not venture out into the desert to see them at Coachella. I got to see Chvrches play a couple of shows in LA last year (at The Fonda in June and The Wiltern in November) so it really was a no brainer that I would want to see them again last night :) More »

What A Wonderful Woman

The TV Guide

My dear friend Gillian and I have a tradition where we enjoy a date night together whenever Lynda Carter, aka Wonder Woman, comes to town in concert. We first saw Lynda Carter together back in the Spring of 2012 and then again in the Spring of 2013. Last night, Lynda performed in concert again at the Catalina Jazz Club in Hollywood, CA and Gillian and I were there for another night of great live music. I have been a Lynda Carter fan for as long as I remember. When I was little, I always wanted to have Lynda as Wonder Woman become my wife. I cannot tell you how special it is for me to be able to see her live in concert all these years later. More »

Outkast Reunites At Coachella, WATCH Their Full Concert Set Here

HOO-TIE-HOOOOOOOOOOOO!
Outkast Reunited AT LAST

Back in November we first got wind that the members of OutkastAndré 3000 and Big Boi — where thinking about reuniting sometime in 2014 and back in January, we learned officially that they would be making their 10ish year reunion on stage on Day 1 of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. Yesterday was Day 1 of Coachella and Outkast rightfully headlined the fest with a 27 song setlist that thrilled their longtime fans … and, very unfortunately, failed to energize the majority of younger folks in the crowd. Kids, smh. Click the video embedded above to watch Outkast‘s FULL concert performance from last night … their first in about 20 years. You can see the setlist for all 27 songs below and find out which musicians came out to either perform on stage with Outkast or watched adoringly in the wings. More »

This Is What Cher Looks Like When Bob Mackie Doesn’t Design The Costumes For Her Tour

No No No

Last month we learned that Bob Mackie decided that he didn’t have the time to design the costumes for Cher‘s final concert tour but when her tour kicked off in Phoenix, AZ, it looked like she managed to find a decent costume designer to do the job. Last night in Boston, MA, Cher debuted a new tour costume and, sadly, I hate to say that it’s not one of her better looks. The dress was made of strips of cloth that kinda covered her body with big sequined heart pasties to cover her nipples. Cher may be a bold fashion legend but this is a look that she simply cannot pull off. More »

Madonna Attended Miley Cyrus’s NY Concert And Loved Every Second Of It

#1 Fan

After the two performed together on MTV‘s Unplugged, it’s really no secret that Madonna is a HUGE fan of popstar Miley Cyrus so it really should come as no surprise whatsoever that Maddy would want to be front and center at Miley‘s big concert in Brooklyn, NY last night. Madonna posted some photos on her official Instagram profile, professing her love for Miley and her show … which you can check out below. It was rumored that Madge might jump up on stage to do a little something with Miley but, alas, Madonna just stayed in the audience with the rest of the plebeians. More »
