Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 8/12-8/18

Posted on by .

Last week I got to see The Silent Comedy twice. This is just
what I needed. Now, I can’t stop listening to their new EP, Friends Divide and every time the TV is
on, I hear them singing to me over the promos for Strike Back. I anticipate the
cravings to start up any day now. It’s always so bitter sweet when your
favorite bands get too big to see on a regular basis. At least I still have
bands like Irontom, Tournament of Hearts, and Queen Caveat, all playing show
this week. I highly recommend getting out to see these bands before they too only
come through town a couple times a year…

New Band Love: Youngblood Hawke

Posted on by .

If you’re looking for some fun new tunes you can dance to, look no further than LA’s Youngblood Hawke. Former Iglu & Hartley members Sam Martin and Simon Katz have teamed up with Tasso Smith, Alice Katz, and Nik Hughes to provide us with some undeniably catchy and upbeat indie pop music.  Their October residency at The Satellite was one of my favorites of the year as every week was a lively dance party guaranteed to put a smile on anyone’s face.

The band recently released a new video for a remix of their song “Burning Down” which features Angela Trimbur (no stranger to catchy music video dancing). Watch the video, learn some dance movies, download the song (for FREE right here), and follow the links below to lean more about Youngblood Hawke and to keep up to date on their show schedule. For those of you in LA, they are playing TONIGHT at The Echo with White Arrows (8pm). Just remember to wear those dancing shoes!
