The LA Weekly had an exclusive access to Michael Jackson’ hangar in Santa Monica Airport, that the king of pop used as his studio and art storehouse. I had no idea that such a thing existed nor that Jackson was into drawing and painting, but the pictures of the collection, currently owned by Jackson’s art mentor and friend Brett-Livingstone Strong and the Jackson estate, reveal a little more about his character. The more striking piece is this replica of a monument that Strong and Jackson co-designed together, a megalomaniac kind-of-thing, built for fan-pilgrims wanting to,… errrrrr I don’t know,.. pray …

A new song from the Shins? I’m always craving for one! James Mercer and his new fresh group of musicians decided to play one at Domino Room in Bend, Oregon on August 9th. After covering David Bowie's ‘Ashes to Ashes’ at their comeback show earlier this week, they did this little gem, ‘a slow song’, a beautiful Shins-esque ballad, with such a solid hook when James Mercer sings ‘Taken for a fool’, that you could hang all your melancholy on it… Wait a minute,…‘Taken for a fool’?… is it the title of the song? But isn’t it a Strokes song …

It is already August, I am always amazed how summer time flies, it may be a banality to say it but it's true. However, summer is actually not over at all, September is still summer especially in Southern California, as it’s usually hotter than July! And there are still some festivals like the Port of Los Angeles Lobster Festival, a 3-day event from September 16th to the 18th celebrating the Seafood month and Maritimes traditions. Last year over 24,000 lobster meals were sold,… poor lobsters! According to Buzzbands.la, the line-up will be once again very indie-music oriented (last year our …
