The Growlers Live at The Palladium

Halloween came early for Los Angeles. The Growlers transformed the historic Hollywood Palladium into a night of horror as they sold out the last show of their Beach Goth tour in the U.S. After the alluring Kirin J Callinan opened up the evening, as well as a thrilling performance by Michael Jackson, the band was welcomed onstage by Madame Elvira where they played a two hour set in wicked costumes and makeup.

 

Shame Live at The Teragram Ballroom

Hailing from London, Shame’s post-punk spirit and frenetic performance left me and my concert buddy in a daze, as it was nothing like our expectations from having heard just one of their songs. Their authentic London flair, pure enthusiasm and the charming demeanor of lead singer Charlie Steen as he talks with the crowd can persuade any audience into really embracing their music.

Shame will always be adored in the local music scene and welcomed in Los Angeles. Their shows are a wild ride and you won’t want to miss them the next time they’re in the U.S.!

Sextile Live at The Teragram Ballroom

Opening up for Shame at the Teragram Ballroom last Monday, the duo (Melissa Scaduto and Brady Keehn) struck the audience with their raw energy and enthusiasm for their art. Brady’s lively movements along with a perfect mixture of 80s synthwave and 70s punk, or “primitive post punk from outer space” as they call it on their facebook page, make you want to dance around to their unique sound.

Following the release of their new EP entitled “3” last month they went on a European tour, but are now back in the U.S. I encourage everyone to see this band, not only because they are one of my absolute favorites, but because they really are one of a kind that you do not want to miss!

The National Live at The Hollywood Palladium

Photos and words by Kayla Fernandez.

I always thought of The National as some brooding, depressing, hipster dad band. I was very familiar with their hit song ‘Don’t Swallow the Cap’ off their 7th album “Trouble Will Find Me” and their 5th album, “The Boxer” (I highly recommend you give that album a listen). My sister is a massive fan of theirs so I was tagging along for support, I had no idea what to expect.

As soon as The National took the stage I got this sense of excitement because their fans on barricade was giving off so much eager energy. There was quite a few songs that I  did not know at all, so I did that classic head bob and swaying hips move. The National are known to be a laid back older hipster band but I was blown away with how interactive and spirited group they were live. Mind was blown and my perspective had changed. The National are an incredible live act that cater to their audience but also show that they are having a great time on stage.
