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 »

Featuring Brian Aubert of Silversun Pickups
The Record Store Day Single

Last month we learned the GREAT news that Garbage is, once again, releasing a new single in celebration of Record Store Day (which is this Saturday) and today we get to HEAR the song for the first time and SEE the music video for the track. Directed by longtime Garbage music video collaborator Sophie Muller, The Chemicals is the first of two new songs included on the 10″ vinyl single that will be released on RSD this weekend. The song features guest vocals by Brian Aubert of Silversun Pickups but longtime Garbage fans will hear immediately that this is 100% a Garbage song. I am really looking forward to picking up this vinyl when it is released on Saturday. Please enjoy.

First Look: Snoop Dogg Releases A Music Video For His New Single ‘So Many Pros’

"Party til the break of dawn"
"Every girl just dance with nothin’ on"

Last month, Snoop Dogg released the music video for his single Peaches N Cream, the first from his new Pharell-produced album Bush. Today we get to see the just-released music video for his second single So Many Pros. As you can see in the video embedded above, Snoop showcases the many sides of his personality in this new music video, with the emphasis on his flawless pimp game. The retro feel of the faux movie posters is a very nice touch. This second single is the epitome of that smooth ’70s sound, I can totally dig it. Check out the video for So Many Pros and let the Snoop wash all over you.

Everyone Looks Entirely Miserable In This First One Direction Promo Photo Without Zayn Malik

:(

The remaining members of One Direction just released their first promo photo taken since Zayn Malik left the group a couple of weeks ago and, as you might imagine, the guys look pretty sad and miserable. It’s interesting that the decision was made to release a promo photo of 1D where everyone looks bummed or, at the very least, nonplussed rather than looking, Oh, I dunno, happy. There ain’t a smile to be seen which, I guess, is how pretty much all One Direction fans feel these days. Click below to see what the members of 1D look like officially sans Zayn these days. More »

Watch: Here Is Video Of Christina Aguilera Performing On ‘Nashville’

Country Pop
A Country music star is born

Last week we saw footage from Christina Aguilera‘s upcoming guest stint on the ABC drama Nashville and today we get to see more footage of Xtina on the show. The clip embedded above is from a scene where Aguilera is performing a song in, what looks like, a honky tonk. As you may know, Xtina plays a Pop star character named Jade who is desperate to break into the world of Country music. I believe Pop star Jade will have pink hair and Country music star Jade will have black hear (as in the clip above). I’m really intrigued by this guest stint on Nashville so I’ll be tuning in even tho I don’t even watch the show. I like what I see and hear thus far, do you?
