Last night my good friend Hustle Roses performed her latest concert here in SoCal at a show in Santa Monica, CA. As you may recall, Hustle Roses previously played shows at the Bootleg Bar in Echo Park and at the Ham and Eggs Tavern in downtown LA in just the past few weeks. Homegirl is working hard to ensure that as many people as possible are able to experience her music live. Last night’s Hustle Roses concert was also a bit of a reunion as well … click below to check out photos and video from the fun last night. More »

Last night my friend Jen invited me out for a concert date at the El Rey Theater to see the Swedish Metal band Ghost live. I’ve been hearing about this band for some time now but because I’m not a metal fan, I haven’t really invested too much time in seeing what this band is all about. Ghost played Coachella on Sunday but I was only there for the Friday performances so … when Jen offered, I jumped at the chance. I had a blast, even if a room packed with metal heads isn’t my usual fare. The music was alright, I guess, but I was really all about the spectacle and show. More »

The Live Debut
Selena Gomez may have released her new single Come and Get It last week but she chose the 2013 MTV Movie Awards as the place to debut the song LIVE. Selena was a featured performer on the awards show this weekend and as you can see in the embed above, she gave us a pretty sweet live performance of the song. Not only were fans impressed by Selena‘s performance … but so, too, was our dear Britney Spears. Britney tweeted her love and congrats to Selena after her performance and, well, once you impress the Queen … you’ve pretty much made it in life. Check out Selena‘s live performance of Come and Get It above and then click below to read what Britney had to say about the performance. More »
With Musical Guest Of Monsters and Men
The last few episodes of Saturday Night Live have been kinda hit or miss for me. I was digging some of the skits from this past weekend, and I was especially happy they decided to take on the Accidental Racist song. But with SNL it’s often all about the host, so I’m happy to report that comedian Zach Galifianakis will be hosting an upcoming episode. We just recently watched the new trailer for The Hangover III, and much of the story centers around Zach‘s character Alan… being off of his meds, lol. I could def use a little Galifianakis to hold me over until the movie drops. Click inside for more!
Rock Star Status
Miguel has been doing huge things recently and I’m becoming a bigger fan of his work every day. The other day I lost my mind watching his cameo in J. Cole‘s new video for Power Trip, and now we get to check out video of his performance on the Saturday Night Live stage. Miguel definitely rocked the mic… and honestly? I’d just really appreciate it if he’d stop trying to sing everyone’s panties off. ‘Cause it’s awkward. Especially when he hits those high notes, lmao. Peep the video above to watch his performance of his Grammy Award-winning song Adorn, and click inside for How Many Drinks. It needs to be said… he slays the How Many Drinks performance!
Kind Of A Big Deal!
A while back we learned that our girl Rebel Wilson would be hosting the 2013 MTV Movie Awards. Whether on screen or on stage at other awards shows, Rebel has never disappointed me and I cannot wait to witness the madness that I know she’s gonna bring as tonight’s host. There has been lots of talk about this year’s ceremony, but I’m especially excited to report that Rebel will reportedly be joined by her fellow Pitch Perfect cast members in tonight’s big opening!

So … I survived my first Coachella Music and Arts Festival intact … and I am very happy to report that I had a lot of fun. Despite the scorching heat and the hordes of people, I managed to enjoy my one and only day at Coachella much more than I was expecting. Ollie, Caleb and I left LA around noon and made our way into the desert for the music fest. We made a pit stop in Cabazon, CA for lunch and then rolled into Indio, CA right in time to catch Johnny Marr‘s set. The rest of the day was spent relaxing as much as possible, catching other live performances, meeting up with friends, meeting a PITNB reader and then closing out the night with a stellar performance by How to Destroy Angels. I made it hope by 5AM this morning but, yeah, it was totally worth it all. More »

Earlier today I blogged that I am on my way to the 2013 Coachella Music and Arts Festival today but if YOU cannot be at the fest in person, at least you can watch the whole thing for FREE online as it happens. For the second year in a row, the folks at Coachella are streaming the festival LIVE on You Tube. The embed above is the one provided for the livestream but if it doesn’t work properly, you can click HERE to update the stream if needed. The livestreaming begins at 3:30PM PT (6:30PM ET) today and will run all weekend long. If you can’t be in the desert, sweatin’ with us crazies, then this is the next best thing. Enjoy!

Trent Reznor‘s new band, the collective called How to Destroy Angels, made their live performance debut at the Fox Theater in Pomona, CA last night in front of a sold out house of family, friends and fans. Altho HTDA will make their official live debut at the Coachella Music and Arts Festival this weekend, last night’s show in Pomona was meant to be a more intimate introduction to the world. I was thrilled to be in attendance last night and I have to say, I was completely blown away by the show. I tried my best not to have any expectations from Trent Reznor and his fellow Angels Mariqueen Maandig, Atticus Ross and Rob Sheridan because I was confident they’d put on an amazing performance. Even still, I was unprepared for the sheer visual and sonic genius that was on display last night. Click below to see some photos from the show which, in all honesty, do not even come close to doing the band justice. More »
