isn’t it asking for even less privacy?
On Monday night, the new band SKYSAW made its debut at the Echo in Los Angeles and they were a lot of anticipation as ex-Smashing Pumpkins’ Jimmy Chamberlin was at the drums: you could see right away, hipsters pressing themselves against the stage to get a better view of the guy who was playing in such a small venue. Well, there’s a 'Hipsters United' site, a blog about the Smashing Pumpkins, so it is not as if I was calling them by a name they don’t want to be called with! When the quintet was setting up the material, everyone …

Fol Chen is a strange oddity really hard to figure out: I had already seen them during this summer and I was not exactly sure of what to do with their unexpected harmonies, jerky rhythms and moody eclectic songs. Their music may be interesting at times with its surprising funky-electronic-pop hiccup but I was not entirely convinced by their eccentricity, especially because that night they were trying something new and were pretending auditioning for a new singer. They were opening for Fujiya & Maiyagi at the Echo on Sunday night and the five of them came on stage in red …
