I hung out at Hotel Figueroa on Monday night with some of my fellow Metro-bloggers. I was in no condition to be having any alcohol since my post-Coachella body was like one of those sponges you find abandoned in the desert. But I had some anyway, and it probably cost me my iPod. Wait, no, […]
One of my fave live bands will be at the Echoplex on May 17th.

Valentina Hasan will NOT be at Coachella this year, though if this viral video keeps spreading, she might have a shot at headlining Bonnaroo. Thanks, jozjozjoz! Follow-up by Tony Pierce at LA Times.
I knew I’d been watching a lot lately, but this is kinda unreal. Bones sits in the number six slot of my last.fm chart this week. Also making a strong showing is Prince, but only because I’m trying digging through music for the upcoming wedding gig. Midnight Juggernauts are up there because I’m boning up […]
