Live Review: Black Rebel Motorcycle Club @ The Troubadour 12/21

When Black Rebel Motorcycle Club announced their four show mini West Coast tour to close out the year, fans knew that new music from their upcoming Spring release would be played.  But no one would have guessed that it would be this good from the start!  Yes, the band seemed to be finding their groove at times, but that sense of urgency and pure rock n’ roll bliss was as strong as ever.  BRMC tours more than almost any other band, and because of that even warm-up shows have more vivacity than most bands can muster up for a close of tour set.

Show Alert: Yeah Yeah Yeahs @ Glass House (Pomona) 1/11

Whoa.  Hey there awesome show all the way in Pomona!  The Yeah Yeah Yeahs will be playing a super small show for their level of stardom at the Glass House in Pomona on January 11, 2013.  The band recently announced that their new album will be released in the Spring of 2013.  The band played a small comeback show in New York to a crowd of 70 people a few weeks ago as a Hurricane Sandy benefit.  The Glass House holds only 800 people at capacity, so we should feel pretty damn lucky about this one!  Ticket info after the jump.

Live Review: Coldharbour Night @ Exchange LA 12/14

There was a special feeling in the air on Friday night in downtown Los Angeles.  Electronic Dance Music parties can bring about an interesting mix of people.  Sometimes fans are there for the big names- the mega DJs who have transcended their genre and entered the world of universal stardom.  A whole other group of clubbers would be there regardless of who is playing.  They are there for the scene, looking for the right tempo and beats per minute that defines their idea of a weekend party.  But last Friday had a much different feel.  There was a solidarity within the crowd, a reason to be there on a rainy LA night that bonded every clubber and fan.  This feeling was facilitated by the four men who took the decks, not as individuals looking to increase their singular popularity, but instead a cohesive group of artists with the one goal of making this night as special as can be for the fans in attendance.  This was Coldharbour Night with the artists of the Schulz Music Group.

Live Review: NOFX @ Mayan Theater 12/13

NOFX treated fans to a special live performance last night of their 1991 release Ribbed.  The band played the 14 song album from front to back, after leading with some live show staples and classics.  Since we are talking about NOFX classic, would anyone argue against “Eat The Meek” being one of the best moments of every NOFX show?  I doubt it.  A few songs into the set, Fat Mike joked that if you didn’t like the album Ribbed, you were going to be “pissed off for the next 30 minutes”.  There wasn’t a single pissed off fan in the building last night.  Photos and recap of a special night for NOFX fans at the Mayan in Los Angeles.

Electric Flower Group EFD review fonda paul banks

Live Review: Electric Flower @ Fonda Theatre 12/5

If you read these pages often, you know who Electric Flower is.  The LA based band broke into the scene last year with the release of their first EP and a handful of eardrum bursting live shows.  The creative force of Imaad Wasif and Josh Garza have been sonically wrecking soundboards and small clubs across Los Angeles.  Last night, they took on a bigger stage opening for Paul Banks of Interpol at the Fonda.  They played only four songs, but it felt like a complete musical exploration unlike anything else that night.  Electric Flower Group (EFG) was captivating and fierce, and by adding a new bassist to their lineup, their sound is more dynamic than ever.  We have the setlist from last night’s show and the latest on EFG.

Show & Sweater Alert: Every Time I Die @ Oakland Metro Operahouse 2/15 & The Roxy 2/17

Bands sure are getting cocky these days with 2013 dates.  I guess no one in the music biz thinks the world is going to end in a few weeks.  We’ll make you aware of these shows anyways, just in case.  Every Time I Die are coming back to California in 2013- on tour this time with The Acacia Strain.  It’s nice to have the band headlining this time around, and it should set up a properly festive experience.  While the shows are going to be pretty cool, I’m not sure anything can beat the awesome Christmas sweaters that ETID are releasing tomorrow and for only 48 hours.  Seriously, check these out with ticket info as well.
