    I’ve been looking forward to this for a while. As Slowdive was first active between 1989 and 1995, I never had a chance to see them in their first incarnation. I was pretty advanced musically in my pre-teen and teen years, but not so advanced that I was heading out to shows like Slowdive as a twelve year old. It was probably ’94 or ’95 when […]

    I know last week I promised a review of the Year Of No Light show in Glendale (at The Complex) but – much like the Frost/Hecker show at Los Globos two days prior – the band elected to play in almost complete darkness. Which meant I couldn’t get many photos. As I don’t know the group’s oeuvre all that well, posting three foggy/dark […]

I’d become so comfortable on my couch with the fan running at full blast I was content to […]

    Oh man, has it been EIGHT YEARS since I last saw Marissa Nadler perform live? I think it has. On that nightin late October of 2005she took the stage at Tonic (RIP) in support of the Flaherty/Corsano duo and Jackie-O Motherfucker. My little review — my immediate reactionto hearing her music for the first time — wasn’t all that compelling. The first musician […]

  • Spiritualized - United Artists Theater; Los Angeles, CA

    Is there a better way to spend Valentine’s Day than getting to watch Spiritualized perform their crowning achievement,Ladies And Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space, live and in person? What about if the ticket price included a VIP open bar party before the show? Well…that’s how I spent my evening, and it was incredible. It’s hard to believe that it’s been FIFTEEN YEARS since […]
