Ticket Giveaway: GRiZ @ Fonda Theatre 10/11

We first checked out GRiZ at Lollapalooza this past summer and ever since we’ve been fans. The soulful funk synth master Grant Kwiecinski (aka GRiZ) plays a mixture of computers, controllers and saxophone live on stage. Sounds like a party right? GRiZ live will get you moving and grooving, and Rabbits Black is giving you the chance to check out the 21 year old from Detroit at the Fonda in Los Angeles.


Show Alert: Gary Numan @ Masonic Lodge at Hollywood Forever 10/17

We love being at Hollywood Forever and in the Masonic Lodge for a creepy and entertaining set amongst the many souls at the cemetery.  It takes a special act to raise the spirits there, and the electronic synthesizing pioneer Gary Numan fits the bill perfectly.  The English rocker may be in his mid 50s, but he’s continuing to release music like its the 80s where he released an album every year except for 1987.  Numan’s 2013 release, Splinter (Songs From A Broken Mind), will be out on October 15th, and two days later you can see him at the Masonic Lodge in Los Angeles.

Nine Inch Nails’ “Hesitation Marks” record release day events in Los Angeles

Nine Inch Nails’ eighth studio album Hesitation Marks is a really big deal.  It is (with all respects to Josh Homme and company) the most anticipated album release in rock, electronic (and quite possibly dance) music this year.  The Tension 2013 tour hasn’t even begun and high fidelity recordings of Hesitation Marks haven’t even been heard, and it still feels like Nine Inch Nails is the biggest thing to happen in music this year (you can thank their towering shadow effects festival stage show for that as well).  September 3rd is fast approaching and the Nine Inch Nails machine is in full gear.  Starting on Monday, scattered throughout Los Angeles will be record release events where you can buy Hesitation Marks, get some free food, and hopefully draw the winning raffle number to get you this year’s most ridiculously sought after ticket.
