My first ever nightclub experience was actually in Vegas, and it was about as much fun as a middle school dance. This was back when I was living in Wyoming and the only club I had ever been a part of was my Women’s Rugby club. I couldn’t even tell you the name of the place; it was just bland and boring and bad! Now that I’ve been living in Los Angeles and have been to a club or two, I feel confident in telling you that my recent visit to Las Vegas was life changing.

weenie roast 2016

I’m not going to lie and say I wasn’t bummed that the Red Hot Chili Peppers had to back out of their headlining slot at the last minute due to a medical issue, but with the extended set from Weezer and the unexpected appearance of Blink-182, I definitely did not leave Weenie Roast 2016 mad…

I think I could walk into The Troubadour on any given night and enjoy at least one of the artists on the bill, and this Saturday’s lineup was no different. The night marked Norwegian soul singer Bernhoft’s return to Los Angeles to perform songs from his new EP, Stop/Shutup/Shout It Out. Along with the new EP came a new supporting band, The Shudderbugs, and they completely exceeded all expectations with their performance.

Jadakiss brought down the house this Wednesday at The Roxy with some dope old-school hip hop. His East Coast vibe had the West Coast feeling good when he performed some fresh tracks from his latest album, Top 5 Dead or Alive, but the setlight wasn’t all new; Jadakiss also pulled out classics from his 2004 album, Kiss of Death.

Flatbush ZOMBiES performed to a wild crowd this Wednesday at The Fonda Theatre where day one fans filled the venue and rocked out to the group’s latest album, 3001: A Laced Odyssey.

The crowd knew all the words to almost every song, proving that Flatbush ZOMBiES’ message of open mindedness has resonated with fans for years.

The creative renaissance of Weezer’s latter-day career continues to go strong, with the release of their solid, maybe-conceptual eponymous record The White Album proving that their last record/return-to-form, Everything Will Be Alright In The End, was no fluke. It’s a pretty great time to be a Weezer fan, and this past week was a particularly great time to be a Weezer fan in Los Angeles as the band played an intimate show at The Troubadour before venturing off on a nationwide trek with Panic! At The Disco later this summer.
