Jan 28 The Beach Boys ” Live In Sacramento 1964″ and “Keep an Eye on Summer – The Beach Boys Sessions 1964″
For a Beach Boy fanatic, both albums might not add much to the story but what they add you’ll want to hear. And to hear Dennis, Carl and Brian performing together on stage can’t help but make you Smiley Smile.

Jan 28 Bloody Holly Meets The Great Huerta
Dig, We all love Buddy Holly and think he’s a gentleman with his gentle songs i.e. “Crying, Waiting Hoping”, “Oh Boy”, “Everyday”, “True Love Ways” but what if Chas. T. had a dark side? Who’s to say that he didn’t sit alone in the dark of his Lubbock garage and peruse the Billboard charts wishing harm upon his competition?

Jan 28 Punk, Tats, More Pink, In SoCal? Must be Musink 2015!!!
Our Alyson is trying to get over for at least a day and I don’t know what she plans but if I only had one day I could go, my eyes would be on Off! followed by Bad Religion. Though Rancid? Yelawolf? Blink 182? See what I mean?

Jan 28 In Anticipation Of MSG On Saturday, Jack White’s Setlist 2015 (Spotified As Well!!)
5 songs from the excellent Blunderbuss but only 4 off Lazaretto, which suggest he realizes he dogged it proper, 8 White Stripes tracks, rwo from the Raconteurs (the best two as well) and nothing from Dead Weather

Jan 28 10 Songs: Wednesday, January 28th, 2015
Bad Place For A Good Time – Kate Tempest – This is how you rap to a metronome, like dancing between raindrops, and this is what you rap about not just “be like a tree” but more importantly “find something sacred in all of this silence”. That’s the sort of truth we can all use – A

Jan 27 Be Here Now: First Reviews Of New Albums, Week Of January 26th, 2015
After reading Pitchfork’s ” She crafts slow-burning soul music indebted to singers like Dolly Parton, Dusty Springfield, and Jenny Lewis…” I was gagging to unload on this sucker but the songs are excellent and her voice is beautiful. It is like indie country plus odd instruments and her falsetto

Jan 27 This Cat’s in the Cradle or Andy Warhol’s Behind the Times…
I believe now, even though everyone and their mother can release tracks without a record company backing them, the glut of product, even though it may be fantastic, may be getting overlooked

Jan 27 Debbie Reynolds Wins SAG Awards, Here Is A Live Review From 2011
Watching her finest moments of her filmed career, the woman jumps off the screen in a manner perfect for the hyper reality of the Hollywood dream factory whether throwing a cream pie at Gene Kelly in “Rain.” or kicking up her feet on a long bar in “Molly,” she was the personification of the rounded entertainer

Jan 27 Not With The Band: Why Judgment Is Part Of Us
The ‘innocent until proven guilty’ statement just applies in the courtroom, not only we have the right to express an informed opinion outside of it, but we should! Expressing and writing what we think is part of our rights. What are people so afraid of?

Jan 27 Sam Smith To Pay Out Royalties To Tom Petty For His Song ‘Stay With Me’
‘Of the four phrases, three are virtually identical. The pitches are the same; the rhythms are the same; the chords are pretty much the same, with Petty’s D subbed out for Smith’s C Even the structure of the lyrics is similar — the songs’ titles both arrive on the same notes in the first full bar and are repeated in the last phrase.’

Jan 27 That Was The Week That Was: January 19th, 2015
Let’s hand it to rap, two terrific albums to start the new year. Joey Bada$$ , Bed Stuyvesant liviest one co-founder of the rap collective Pro Era, and who would be big time indeed if he widened his interests on debut album B4.DA.$$ . Or narrowed them as Lupe Fiasco did on his superb Tetsuo And Beyond.

Jan 27 Mark Knopfler, New Album And Tour 2015
Here in New York it is Tuesday afternoon, that is a State of Emergency and I am rushing like crazy to hit the road and get home… just like Mark Knopfler (well, we are both hitting the road. So this cut and paste from Sacks and Co PR firm should be forgiven because if I die…? Right?

Jan 27 Last Call: Last Songs Off New Albums Week Of January 19th, 2015
At eleven minutes on length you’d think this awesome rock drone push and punish finishing “The End” would slacken somewhere but it never relents and its unyielding, ugly power changes a good album to a great one – A

Echo Park Rising, Saturday August 17th 2013, Photo Journal

the anticipation appears overwhelming…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Music festivals can be overwhelming, so many bands to see and so little time, but this Echo Park Rising  just went to an extreme rarely reached! Imagine hundreds of bands playing in at least 17 different Echo Park locations, along Sunset Boulevard! How do you cover that? I hesitated between seeing as many bands as possible, and switching from one place to another before watching a band finish its set, or seeing just a few and watching their whole set each time? I stayed for bands’ entire sets on Saturday and ended up watching 10 bands, but I am gonna try the other way on Sunday, because it was just so frustrating! The whole afternoon, I was going from the Echo to the Echoplex to the Echo Patio to the Taix restaurant’s Champagne Room to the outdoor stage, but I missed so much! I didn’t have time to check out what was happening at Origami Vinyl, Lolipop Records, Lot 1 or any of the cafes, which were also hosting music.

The English Beat’s performance at the Twilight Concert Series on the Santa Monica Pier was madness, the crowd got so rowdy that I saw some people, who had saved their front row spot hours ahead of the show, just give up and move away from the stage to watch the concert from afar, letting plenty of room for a few opportunists. Alcoholic beverages may have been forbidden on the pier, but it didn’t prevent some guys to get drunk and a fight almost started behind me while singer/guitarist Dave Wakeling and the other members of the band were preaching peace and love to the crowd.
