We finally got the witness Doomsquad! The Montreal/Toronto trio make hypnotic, acid house-tingled psychedelia and made a recent stop off in Los Angeles in support of their lovely debut longplayer, Kalaboogie – the record comes highly recommended. Stream the entire thing after the photos. Photos from (the very dark- apologies) night are below.We’re excited about this...

Seeing Bay Area Black Metal gazers Deafheaven on these pages should be no surprise- we’ve been absolutely in love with the quintet since we first heard them on 2011′s Roads to Judah and with their 2013 effort Sunbather to go off, it’s no wonder they’ve keep graduating to larger and larger rooms; the symphony needs...

The sandwiched Coachella week played host to slew of well-booked, top-to-bottom bills and the partytimers behind Check Yo Ponytail 2‘s last Tuesday night made no exception. Special guests Boys Noize, R.L. Grime, Shlohmo, Groundislava and Spaceghostpurrp-  with his RVIDXR KLVN- made showed up to join the already-announced Gaslamp Killer, Salva and Thundercat. I missed the opening of...
Sacred Bones is Having An End of The World Party

Sacred Bones is Having An End of The World Party

Sacred Bones Records are a Holloweyed favorite. Safe to say we pay attention to each and every release (Zola Jesus, Psychic Ills, The Men, Cult of Youth, etc.) they drop. To celebrate the NY imprint’s 5th year alive (woo!), the label is having an apocalyptic (well, because it falls on 12.21.12, the supposed Mayan end-date) party in the...
Nuit Noire w/ Silent Servant, Andy Stott, Demdike Stare & More- Saturday in LA

Nuit Noire w/ Silent Servant, Andy Stott, Demdike Stare & More- Saturday in LA

In our last GRAB BAG feature, we mentioned that Dominick Fernow’s Vatican Shadow project would soon be playing LA for a very special party. Well, the details for said event follow and it’s safe to say, it’s absolutely not to miss for fans for minimal/experimental and dark-learning, textured techno. Highland Park record store/boutique Mount Analog presents a...

Contest: Chelsea Wolfe / Crypts- The Echo

We love her delicate, unlit songstress style and in prepearation of her upcoming first-ever fully acoustic record, Unknown Rooms: A Collection of Acoustic Songs, we’re excited to invite some of you to win two pair of tickets to her upcoming show, this Friday, September...
Bloc Party Do Intimate Return Show, Tease Almost Entire New LP

Bloc Party Do Intimate Return Show, Tease Almost Entire New LP

It’s been four years since UK outfit Bloc Party released their fragrant, electronic-hinged third LP, Intimacy. Following the band’s hiatus in the Fall of 2009 was a few solo releases and some tours to support them, but for close to two years, the rumors churned on if new material, or a continued rank would surface....

Last Friday night, after meeting Rodney Bingenheimer for the first time at an underwhelming art show, I went babewaving. Wishing I’d coined the term (that’s a @katbeee)– as it relates to bands and not whatever porn Google brings up– as it seems almost too perfect, the Echoplex played host to four female-fronted bands, all of which...

Photos: OFF! Record Release Show w/ FIDLAR- Whiskey a Go Go

Keith Morris, one of hardcore’s true forces through stints in Black Flag, Circle Jerks and now OFF!, is 56 and is still fucking pissed. As evident with OFF!’s 2010 EP collection as their powerful debut, Morris can still lead a band to war and continuing the battle (with pretty much most of society), the quintet...

GRAB BAG: Creators Project SF Edition

While the overwhelming majority of you are likely trudging through the promotional-product-littered streets of Austin right now on achey feet after 15 minutes of said buzz band’s set (hey! I would’ve have been down there too, but sometimes things happen), there’s another pretty neat music and arts event taking place this weekend in San Francisco to mention-...

Photos: The Soft Moon and Light Asylum- First Fridays at the Natural History Museum

With the new year comes the return of the KCRW/Spaceland-presented First Fridays concert series at the Natural History Museum in downtown Los Angeles and after missing the January installment with punks-turned-culture-clashers Mariachi El Bronx heading the bill, I vowed the February set would make my calander. A lively and always worthwhile event, the First Fridays series plays host to...
Year in Music 2011: Top 50 Albums

Year in Music 2011: Top 50 Albums

The year in review is always hard and with all the great and original releases that were issued this year, 2011 was by far the hardest of calendars to sort out and rate. Fringe genres explored popular confines (Chillwave, Witch House) punk went pop and weird (Fucked Up, Thee Oh Sees), hip-hop went pop and weird (Shabazz,...
