The Mosh Pit: Johnny Stimson at KCRW’s School Night

December 11th, 2013 | Shows, Music

Johnny Stimson is probably one of my favorite new acts of the year, which says a lot considering he only has 3 tracks in his back catalogue. This guy is not afraid to go balls to the wall with just his voice alone.

The Mosh Pit: Tegan and Sara at Club Nokia

February 5th, 2013 | Shows, Music

Friday night’s Tegan and Sara show at Club Nokia has got to be one for the books. Not only did the Quins perform all of Heartthrob, but they added more than a handful of old favorites as well, creating the most perfectly blended setlist my ears ever did hear.

The Mosh Pit: The Temper Trap at the Roseland Ballroom

October 16th, 2012 | Shows, Music

There is absolutely no better way to celebrate the end of midterms week with a kick ass concert at your favorite venue. I’m talking The Temper Trap at Roseland Ballroom on Friday.

The Mosh Pit: Alabama Shakes + Antibalas

August 16th, 2012 | Shows, Music

There have only been a few select voices that have given me shivers up, down, and around my spine. Voices so strong and so good that they’re on the verge of superhuman powers. Alabama Shakes’ lead singer, Brittany Howard, sure as hell has one superhuman larynx.

The Mosh Pit: Kevin Devine

March 24th, 2012 | Shows, Music

Kevin Devine & The Goddamn Band played at The Constellation Room last night. We’ve been following him for at least 4 years (has it really been that long?), and were extremely excited to see him again.

The Mosh Pit: The Temper Trap

March 22nd, 2012 | Shows, Music

We caught Temper Trap at The Glass House last night, and it was phenomenal. Dougy’s voice was just as amazing as I hoped it would be in person, and the band. Australia kicks major ass in music, and Temper Trap was there to prove it.

The Mosh Pit: Dia Frampton

March 20th, 2012 | Shows, Music

Dia Frampton & the rest of the gang headlined at The Troubadour in all their glory, with American Tomahawk and Jarrod Gorbel opening. (Check them out if you get the chance.) The band had all their regular equipment in South Dakota, so they stripped down for an acoustic performance, just the way we like it.

The Mosh Pit: William Fitzsimmons

March 17th, 2012 | Shows, Music

William Fitzsimmons sounds just as good live as he does recorded. However, that was excpected. Ha. My biggest take away from this show? William Fitzsimmons is downright damn hilarious…

The Mosh Pit: Wild Belle

March 3rd, 2012 | Shows, Music

On Thursday night, I learned three things: 1. LA breeds a whole different kind of hipster. 2. They all hang out at the Echoplex. 3. Wild Belle is not just a one hit wonder. #giantsighofrelief

The Mosh Pit: Ra Ra Riot

February 23rd, 2012 | Shows, Music

This week, we checked out Ra Ra Riot at El Rey Theatre and it was filled with awesomely awkward dancing and swaying back and forth to the music. The most awesome part was hearing their string quartet live. The epic tuneage took over the theatre like some kind of oceanic wave of awesome and made for a perfect Wednesday night.
