Upcoming Live Shows Archive

  • Though it’s only a couple weeks into Summer technically speaking, Party Gardens already released THE EP of the season a month ago. If you haven’t heard of Party Gardens it’s because they used to be called Yellow Minute, moved to LA and changed their name (a trend I’m not sure if they or KNESSET started and which Future Loves Past has followed). Since Sean Brennan surrounded himself with some of the best parts of What Laura Says and formed a full band, I have been waiting eagerly for this release and there is no disappointment found here in any capacity. ...

  • This week appears to be quite heavy on week night shows and not so much on the weekend. This is actually fine by me since I am a little spent after last weekends three day Farewell Festival at The Sail Inn. Of course this also means that I have to hit some amazing shows in the middle of the week, having not yet quite recovered. That being said, it will be well worth it over the next three nights and there are some things that will make your weekend great as well. On Thursday night, however, you have some rough...

  • I kind of wish I had written this yesterday, because there was a lot of righteous live music playing in this town for a Wednesday night in deep heated June. The truth is, a beautiful girl that’s new to this world named Louisa Jane has been occupying a ton of my attention, so that trumps all. Still the music marches on and this week is no exception, in fact this week is astounding with a bittersweet tinge to it. I’m going to cover it first, because it is the “main event” and it as much filled with joy as it...

  • This weeks shows start a bit late into the week, but considering last week rolled right into this week with great shows–well, honestly, I could use a break for a night or two. Of course, I will be spending them writing while in seclusion and that will be no different from any other night. Nevertheless, there is a lot of interesting shit hitting Thursday night and straight through the weekend to sear your ears and keep you grooving until you have to face another Monday. Here’s the lowdown. When & Where: Thursday, June 19-22, 6pm – Parliament Reasons To Attend:...

  • Alright, there is at least one great show every night here for the next six nights in a row and that’s what this is all about. I actually meant to include Tuesday night because there was a killer show at the Yucca with my faves Twin Ponies and Celebration Guns, but yesterdays article took too long to write and I really should have had my shit together on Sunday, but I didn’t. Nevertheless, here are the gorgeous details of all that’s going down in this town over the next six nights. There may well be more going on than this,...

  • I may be flogging a dead horse here, but I’m really excited about this show. I haven’t been out to shows for a few weeks and this will be a great way to return to catching live music. It also happens that I’m super excited about every single act here and seeing them throw down at Crescent Ballroom. Here is an entire lineup of up and coming acts that are really gaining speed and it’s a show that should go down in the “I Remember When” category a year from now. It’s also at Crescent on a Sunday night and...

  • Celebration Guns and Twin Ponies were two of my favorite debuting bands of 2013 and this weekend they will release a split release on Rubber Brother Records that marks the first first available recordings by either bend since their debut EP releases.  Indeed, Celebration Guns Quitter EP and Twin Ponies Pores EP are two records from last year that are still in heavy rotation for me even now. I first heard about this split release back in January and February and I’ve been bugging both bands about it ever since. When I check out the live shows for each band,...

  • I’ve been looking forward to this show for quite sometime and now its nearly here so I can urge everyone to hit Rogue Bar this Thursday night–Friday morning be damned, it’s nothing that coffee or energy drinks can’t fix, stay out late, help a goddamned cute dog our and check out some great bands. There is nothing about this evening I don’t like come to think about it. First of all, I love Rogue Bar and all that it entails, second I get to see Villains again and I’m pretty psyched about that, third I highly recommend The Electric Blankets...

  • You would not think that a band so solemn, and self-admittedly so, would be the kind of outfit to throw a blowout stellar release party, but that’s what The Riveras are going to do and the artistry of their brand new album alone is worthy of it. We Don’t Remember The Dream, But The Dream Remembers Us is an eight track album of beautifully orchestrated solemnity that hones in on their patented mellow, heavy sound. This is not for casual use, this is for days that you must be attuned, focused and for moments that you want to indulge yourself...

  • The Prowling Kind was one of my favorite debuts of last year, along with the likes of Celebration Guns, Twin Ponies, Northern Hustle and of course Fairy Bones, this was one band that rocked my world in 2013–unlike the other bands listed, I unfortunately never got to write about their album at the time. I blame it on the fact that JAVA Magazine has no August issue and by the time I did get their album it was long past its release, so I’m fixing that now, because I love their debut Tennessee. It’s not like I didn’t know the...
