Shows Of The Week: 6/4 – 6/10

Here’s a new little column I’ve been wanting to post up for awhile. It’s short, sweet, and very to the point. Here you’ll find my favorite shows and artists playing in the greater Los Angeles area. You can bet I’ll be at a few, if not all, of them!

June 4 – The Colourist, Blondfire, Now Now, and Davis Fetter at The Bootleg Bar: I’ll admit it… I’m mostly excited to see Now, Now. I wrote about them back in April, and I’m SO excited to finally get to see them preform at such an intimate venue. They’ve been on some pretty big tours this year, so it’s definitely going to be special.

June 5 – Walk The Moon at The Echo: So excited about these guys… WONDERFUL melodies, and just so damn catchy. Again, it’s an incredibly intimate venue, and as these guys are on the fast track to blowing up soon I suggest taking the opportunity to see them while you can!

June 6 – States at The Glass House Pomona: I’m really excited to see my friend Stephen’s band play in Pomona this Wednesday. If you’re not familiar with States, its the birth child of Copeland and Mindy White of Lydia. Some of my favorite bands in high school, they’ve created a much more mature sound for a more mature audience.

June 8 – Maps and Atlases with Hands at The Troubadour: You’ve all heard of Maps and Atlases I’m sure… they’re always SO solid. But if you haven’t had a chance to check out Hands yet, I suggest you do it this Friday night.

Check out Hands’ music video for Warm Night Home below!

So there you have it! Check back next week for the SOTW column again. If I’m missing out on any AMAZING shows I should know about, leave me a comment and tell me about em!

Spinning // Birdy

I was fortunate enough to catch Birdy live at Bardot this week for It’s A School Night. In a room of what must have been only 300 people, I saw one of the most intimate performances I’ve ever seen. Interestingly enough, the performance was just a girl and a piano. The most interesting part? This girl is only 15 years old.

Spinning // LP

Music Supervision is a powerful thing. It’s the visual radio of today. I actually read this quote recently that said something about music being so incredibly visual nowadays that it’s become a soundtrack to our life, not just a record or CD we pop in. It’s become a part of us and our being. We all remember the songs that we listened to when we moved far away from home for the first time (The Anthem – Phantom Planet) or the album that defined our summer (Local Natives – Gorilla Manor in 2009 was one of my FAVORITE summers and albums). It’s a part of our beings. It’s in our souls. THAT’S why I love music supervision.

Like I was saying, music supervision is a powerful thing. My favorite music supervisors often put some amazing bands in front of my eyes and ears. This week, I have music supervisor Marcy Bulkeley and a Citibank commercial  to thank for bringing me LP.

LP, an artist out of New York City transplanted to Los Angeles, has one of the most unique female voices I’ve heard in years. I’m completely obsessed with the sound of her voice and the passion behind it. Everything about her is riveting, from the way she dresses to the way she whistles (which, as a pro whistler myself, I have a strong respect for haha). See and hear LP sing “Into The Wild” below:

Told you. I knew she’d be your new favorite. BIG things to come from this girl in 2012, I hear it!

musically yours,
