John Maus @ Teragram LA

Between the recent release of  synth-pop masterpiece ‘Screen Memories’ and the increasing anticipation of his next album, ‘Addendum,’ John Maus is selling out shows across the US. This past Tuesday night at Teragram Ballroom in downtown Los Angeles was no exception.

SLOPPY JANE @ GYM STANDARD – Raw, Honest, & Unapologetic.

Vulnerable is the the best way I can describe the stage persona of Sloppy Jane: the front woman spewing blue goo from her mouth and proceeding to strip naked in front of the crowd, the presentation of Sloppy Jane is raw, honest, and unapologetic. It’s one of those things that makes you wonder what the hell you just walked into, but is extremely empowering all the same.


On July 29th, 2017, fourteen bands gathered to support the San Diego chapter of The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. The all day festival starting at 2:30pm and going till 10:30pm, was filled with amazing music, great food, and a little over a hundred people excited and ready to support the music and the cause.

Downtown Boys @ Soda Bar 4/16/17

A few years ago I found myself asking “Why does listening to politically and socially conscious music tend to be a phase people grow out of as they get older?” Is it that the exuberant passion they once had for it during their more formative years vanished as they transitioned more into adulthood? Did they just become apathetic? Because certainly the subject matter is never childish, and the issues addressed usually affect mostly adults.


Thought a concert couldn’t happen in a backyard? Ask the overflowing crowd that showed up to support local indie surf-punk band, Bad Kids, and think again. Just two days ago, the guys of Bad Kids, (Bassist: Arturo Macias, Drummer: Leon Lara, Guitarist: Ray Hamilton, Keys: Chad Boland, and Vocalist: Kalani Lomu) along with Fake Tides, Los Shadows, Instinct, Spooky Cigarette, and T.Rexico threw the wildest and most memorable house show to ever exist in Imperial Beach.
