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.

This week I took a pretty big step in my adult life. After booking two national commercials in the past few months, I decided to transition from living in a small apartment to a large house in the Valley!
