Originally scheduled for 5/13 at The Fonda, this show has been moved to 5/17 at The Troubadour.

Crossing the pond in search of the best coast, British indie rockers Coasts are headed our way for some California sunshine next month! It’s been a little over a year since we caught them last January supporting Bad Suns at a sold-out El Rey Theatre, so we’re properly stoked to welcome them back for their first LA headlining show at The Fonda The Troubadour.

The first-place tune, an aching acoustic ballad titled “Hallelujah,” was one of the first songs Wigmore had ever written, alluding to a promising future for the young musician.

A dream of mine came true when I got the opportunity to see Paul Simon perform at The Forum back in 2014. He was co-headlining a tour with Sting, and the two split the spotlight for the night, sharing the stage for an enthusiastic crowd that had spent the last few decades falling in love the music of the two living legends.

3/25 UPDATE: Congratulations to our winner Jessica Embick, and a big THANK YOU to everyone who entered!

Wolfmother is one of Australia’s greatest rock ‘n’ roll gifts to the world. Their sound is eclectic, and their feel is hard-hitting, which is my kind of fusion. Formed in 2000 by lead vocalist/writer Andrew Stockdale, this group gave the city of Sydney something else to boast about (besides its breathtaking beauty).
