Watch: Daniel Radcliffe Hosts ‘Saturday Night Live’, Lana Del Rey Performs

DanRad Kills, Lana Dies?

Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe (who just completed a run on Broadway in the revival of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying and who will be seen in the upcoming feature film The Woman In Black) paid a visit to Saturday Night Live last night to host the weekly sketch comedy and by most accounts, he did a really great job. While I personally wasn’t all that impressed with the variety of sketches that they came up with for this week’s episode, I did think that DanRad did an excellent job with the material provided to him. The musical guest last night was newcomer Lana Del Rey who most people have never heard of … and after her painfully awkward performance last night, may likely never want to hear from again. In case you missed SNL last night or just want to watch the sketches again, you can check them out below. More »

Watch: Taylor Swift & The Civil Wars Perform ‘Safe & Sound’ Live In Concert

The First Ever Live Performance of the 'Hunger Games' Song

Last month, just before Xmas, we got a GREAT early present when the first single from the soundtrack to The Hunger Games was released. Safe & Sound by Taylor Swift and The Civil Wars is the first single released from the Games soundtrack and by and large the song has been met with positive responses from most people. Last night, Taylor joined The Civil Wars on stage during their concert in Nashville, TN to surprise the audience with the first live performance of Safe & Sound. Thankfully, cameras were rolling in the audience. Click below to watch Taylor Swift and The Civil Wars perform Safe & Sound from The Hunger Games live. More »

See Spot, Show

The TV Guide

Last night was a very bizzy night for me … from Beverly Hills to downtown LA, I spent part of my evening hanging with a bunch of different friends on opposite sides of town. First, David and I met up with our new friends Gray and Jeff at the Gagosian Gallery in Beverly Hills for the Damien Hirst: The Complete Spot Paintings 1986-2011 exhibit and then I jetted downtown to meet up with Ollie and Caleb for dinner before Irene and I went to see M83 in concert. It was a very bizzy but extremely fun night. More »

A ‘Sweet & Tender’ Tribute To The Smiths

The TV Guide

Last night I made my way down South to Anaheim, CA to see a couple of coverbands in concert. Now, I’m not a big fan of coverbands but I’ve been so curious to see The Smiths/Morrissey coverband Sweet & Tender Hooligans live in concert that I couldn’t resist making the trek to see them last night. I’ve been listening to The Smiths almost every single day for the past 6 months so, yeah, I’ve been on a definite kick lately. Hooligans performed last night with Strangelove, a Depeche Mode coverband and I have to tell you … they both put on fantastic shows. I had a blast! I snapped some photos and shot some video to give you a taste of last night’s superfun concert. More »

Tori Amos Enchants Los Angeles, Night 2

The TV Guide

Wow. I mean … wow. I am a bit speechless today as I sit here and try to succinctly write about last night’s Tori Amos concert at the Orpheum Theatre in downtown LA last night. As you may recall, Ollie and I saw Tori perform live in concert Saturday night at the Orpheum and last night, Adriana and I attended Tori‘s second LA show. The setlist last night was peppered with rare treats (Ode to the Banana King) and longtime favorites (Take to the Sky) but we got a song so rare that Tori Amos has never performed it live in concert before. To say that last night was magical would be an understatement. Click below to see some of the photos that I snapped last night, check out the setlist and watch video of Tori Amos performing the Y Kant Tori Read song On the Boundary for the first time ever.

Jay-Z & Kanye West Bring The ‘Cray’ To LA

The TV Guide

Last night David and I made our way to the Staples Center in downtown LA to see Jay-Z and Kanye West live in concert on their Watch the Throne Tour. Altho I’m not necessarily a huge fan of either artist, I couldn’t pass up the chance to see 2 of the best rappers alive perform together on the same stage. Last year I got to see Eminem in concert with Jay-Z in Detroit, MI and I was completely blown away. Last night, I was kinda blown away again. Check out some photos and video from last night’s show.

The Wrap Up

The TV Guide

Because of a really tight schedule yesterday, I didn’t have much time to get much work done … and absolutely no time to write up a TV Guide post … so today’s post will be a bit of a wrap up post. As you may recall, Sarah and I got to see Tori Amos live in concert for her second NYC show on Saturday night … then afterward, we met up with David’s sister Eden and her friends for some late night birthday drinks. Yesterday morning, we made our way down to China Town for a Dim Sum birthday brunch and then … it was time for David and me to fly home. More »
