LIVE REVIEW: My Goodness W/ Adventure Galley Crystal Ballroom Portland, OR

When a radio station sells 94-cent tickets to an “I Saw Them When” show, don’t go with any expectations. But if you do, and My Goodness is on the bill, you’ll have your expectations blown out of the water. Please follow and like us:

LIVE REVIEW: FYF – Los Angeles

What started out in 2004 as a punk-rock festival at The Echo, 18-year-old music promoter Sean Carlson, created “F Yeah Fest,” which was eventually moved to the L.A. Historic Park and re-named FYF. Last year, Carlson celebrated the 10-year anniversary, and this year has moved the festival to the Los Angeles Sports Arena & Exposition Park at University of Southern California (USC’s) Coliseum. With an attendance of more than 30,000 bass heads and indie kids, the perimeters of USC were heavily guarded this weekend, including the bomb squad, to ensure…

I caught up with their Summer 2014 tour at the famous Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, New Jersey to watch some face-shredding death metal. Please follow and like us:

LIVE REVIEW: Bootstraps Los Angeles, CA

After facing the hell that is Los Angeles traffic, the site of the dimly lite Troubadour sign at the peak of Santa Monica Boulevard was a welcomed one on July 17th. I really did not have any expectations going into the show for five piece folk-rockers Bootstraps, I heard a couple tracks and was intrigued by their sound enough to agree to cover the show. Within their released music, it was refreshing to hear a band that did not have a electronic beat or excessive use of auto tune, as…

LIVE REVIEW: OK Go, Seattle, WA

Every good band has a niche to set them apart from the thousands of other musical acts trying to make a name for themselves. OK Go accomplishes this with their fun and upbeat songs that are accompanied with the most creative and impressive music videos that the internet has seen. It all started out with the band’s choreographed dance to their song “A Million Ways” back in 2005. Soon after this video was surfaced on YouTube, it went viral and hundreds of people were posting videos of themselves performing the…

LIVE REVIEW: Magic Man, Seattle, WA

Watching a group of musicians grow together as a band is one of the coolest things to watch in the music industry. From playing tiny local shows, opening for rad bands, and playing your own sold out headlining tour shows – the journey is just as fun and rewarding for the band as it is for the fans. Originating from Boston, Magic Man (not to be confused with the hit single by classic rock band, Heart) is a five-piece indie alt-pop group that has gone through these transitions as gracefully…

LIVE REVIEW: Magic Man

Not having a way of transportation leads to relying on others for rides. Wednesday night, my means of transportation relied on my fiancé. We arrived to the The Grove in Los Angeles at 8 p.m., about thirty-minutes before Big Data. We took the elevator seven floors to the main lobby, rushed passed two Italian restaurants, and finally found black curtains guarded with security. We went through the curtains, to find a whole different world of an outdoor stage, white string lights above our heads, and a beautiful stage lit with colorful…

LIVE REVIEW: Neon Trees, Smallpools, Nightmare And The Cat Detroit, MI

The Fillmore with its elaborate décor, definitely lends itself to a theatrical show. The Pop Psychology Tour definitely lives up to this. Nightmare and the Cat, the first opening band, completely control the stage. Lead singer Django Stewart, comes out in heeled boots, eyeliner, mascara and glittery eye shadow, making me do a quick double take to make sure David Bowie hasn’t had a second coming. He moves fluidly through each song like a ballet dancer or aerial artist. Both Django and his brother, Samuel Stewart, (guitar) hail from London…

LIVE REVIEW: Fitz And The Tantrums, Seattle, WA

It’s not everyday when a band has their music played and promoted across multiple Top 40 and alternative radio stations simultaneously. Fitz And The Tantrums does just this. Fitz and The Tantrums are one of the few neo soul/indie pop-rock outfits that have been able to achieve this sought-after crossover success. Fitz And The Tantrums’ wide reach became apparent as I stood in line to enter the Showbox SoDo in Seattle. Fans ranged from the ages of 6 years old to mid-60s! The sextet hailing from Los Angeles managed to sell out…
