Was lucky enough to see The Radio Dept. last night at the El Rey Theatre in Hollywood. Hailing from Sweden this was their first ever US tour, couldn't be more stoked that I caught them. I believe it was a sold out show, for good reason. Seriously, so so sooooo good live. Their sound was phenomenal! Hopefully will catch them again at Coachella (if I ever get my hands on some tickets).

Sold out show at the Troubadour last night, Miniature Tigers and Freelance Whales. It was a pretty good show, not the greatest but good. Just moved a little slow and it felt like both bands needed a few red bulls. I more so went to see Miniature Tigers since I missed their last show. I got to say I was a teeny bit disappointed with their live performance, it was a bit choppy at times and vocals weren't always the greatest. I did however appreciate how they brought a random fan up to play drums for them on a few songs, that was pretty cool. Freelance was nice and mellow. I liked their attempt at stage design, they put up a stitched backdrop and some cool handmade flower lights. Getting past the dirty shoe smell of the Troubadour (or maybe that was the guy standing next to me) the show was swell.

Ogilvy and Mather, Los Angeles hosted an event for Generation Rwanda. This is a pic of me and Corey Nickols taken by Simon Cordova. Both amazing photographers that helped out that night by documenting the occasion. A big thank you to both of you for volunteering your time and talent for a good cause. Please check out their websites for more. Simon Cordova and Corey Nickols, both Los Angeles based. Also take some time and visit the Rwanda site, its really an amazing program and opportunity for the students. fyi, they accept donations :)

Yelle at the Echoplex on Friday night. wow. One of the BEST shows I've been to in a while. I was super bummed that I was missing Dr. Dog at the Wiltern but couldn't be more happier that I opted for Yelle instead. It was a sweaty dance party hot disaster that needed to happen. Later on to be followed by Two Boots that didn't disappoint. We ate good pizza and made some interesting new friends, who by the end of the night were mooning us. It was that kind of night.

Went to 2 Door Cinema Club last night at the Music Box. The Generationals opened up for them, their performance was okay. I was a little disappointed with them live. They lacked energy and enthusiasm, basically they were bland. Two Door on the other hand was pretty awesome. Check out some videos from the show.

BEST SHOW EVER!
I went to the Music Box last night in Hollywood with some friends for the Fun. show. Unfortunately we got there late so I missed the opening acts but its cool because all I really care about is FUN! I've been in love with this band for a very long time starting with The Format days and am always blown away when I see them live. Nate is an amazing performer, so much energy and passion when he sings. Love love LOVE! Was such a great show. (http://www.ournameisfun.com/)
ps. one of my favorite photographs of them (above) shot by Brooklyn based photographer Elizabeth Weinberg. Check out her site she has amazing work.
