Wrabel LA Music Blogcast

With our usual co-host Mikiel Houser mixing it up with the cosplayers down at ComicCon this week, Marcus Slater stepped up to sit across from David Fisch for last night’s LA Music Blogcast. Before being joined by our talented musical guest Wrabel (whom you may know as Afrojack’s collaborator on the international hit “Ten Feet Tall”), the guys chatted with fellow LAmb writer Lesley Park about their favorite TV theme songs, Hodor’s “Rave Of Thrones” DJ tour, sad Jack White, and more.

LA Music Blogcast Babes

The LA Music Blogcast crew went all pirate radio last night, commandeering the TradioV studio a full 30 minutes before our scheduled 8:00pm starting time. We’re such rebels (or maybe we’re just eager beavers who convinced our supportive booth team to let us take advantage of Suicide Girls not having a show this week). Either way, viewers got a supersized Blogcast last night, and thank goodness because our hosts had a lot to talk about!
