      To start night two of what will be remembered as a legendary stand at the Los Angeles Sports Arena, Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder walked up to the mic and simply counted off. A swaying strum of Stone Gossard and Mike McCready's guitars signaled the swell of "Oceans" as the entire venue roared in approval. Blue lights bathed the band as Matt ...more

      Live Review: Nine Inch Nails – STAPLESCenter, Los Angeles

      Mon, 11 Nov 2013 10:20:51

      Nine Inch Nails tempered technological advancement with raw, real, and rough catharsis at STAPLESCenter on Friday night. The Tension 2013 tour stands out as the group's best to date as it merges everything so mind-blowing about Trent Reznor's genius vision of a live show into one explosive package. The bruising brutality of "Wish" from Broken ...more

      Live Review: Slayer & Gojira – The Hollywood Palladium

      Mon, 28 Oct 2013 06:52:04

      "This is the first time we've played L.A. in fucking 25 years," Slayer singer and bassist Tom Araya announced to the sold out Palladium. The world is certainly quite a different place than it was in 1988, but one thing is the same. Slayer remain the most intense, infectious, and irresistible thrashers of all-time. In fact, as evidenced by last ...more

      Live Review: Linkin Park at Sunset Strip Music Festival

      Sun, 04 Aug 2013 14:18:48

      Los Angeles, especially Sunset Boulevard, never really gets the credit it deserves. More dreams come true in the City of Angels than its detractors would like to admit. One such dream belonged to the members of Linkin Park, and they remained markedly grateful during their triumphant Sunset Strip Music Festival headline set last night. Chester ...more

      "I know you guys know this fucking part," Hollywood Undead's J-Dog screamed to the packed Houston House of Blues. He was proven right as the entire room burst into the crescendo of "City" from Swan Songs, screaming "The city looks so pretty, do you want to burn it with me?" A torch or two and all of Houston might've gone up in flames, but that's ...more

      Live Review: Limp Bizkit — House of Blues, West Hollywood

      Sat, 25 May 2013 10:31:22

      So, where was the real party last night in Hollywood? It wasn't at Greystone Manor or the newest chichi club people will care about for only two weeks. It wasn't in the hipster mecca Silverlake where nobody gets excited about anything that doesn't involve Radiohead or Zooey Deschanel. It was at the House of Blues in West Hollywood for Limp Bizkit's ...more

      Last night at The Wiltern, Queens of the Stone Age put on the kind of show that people really talk about for weeks to come—not just on Twitter on Facebook. It's the kind of gig that makes you want to drive home still listening to the band. How rare is that in this day and age? It was a special Los Angeles one-off, and it was downright awesome. ...more
