Amanda’s SD Concert Calendar 9/2-9/8

Posted on by .

This calendar post is coming to you a little late for a few reasons. Reason 1: Spent all day yesterday cleaning out and reorganizing my tack shed at the barn which made getting up at a decent hour this morning a little difficult. Reason 2: On the way to the barn this morning a beautiful Siberian husky had decided to cross a busy street on it’s own and stop traffic. Fortunately, the dog stopped right at our truck, we picked it up, and proceeded to look for the owner since it didn’t have a collar. Thankfully, we found the owner in less than 20 minutes and did a good deed for the day. However, that meant getting to the barn even later so….. yeah.

New Music Tuesday 10/16/12 Featuring Leogun, Kris Orlowski & Andrew Joslyn, ZZ Ward

Posted on by .

New Music! Hooray!

My top suggestions this week:

LeogunLeogun EP 

This band has created some of the most exciting tunage I’ve heard in a while. For more see what I wrote about them after I saw them last week. Bottom line: pick up this EP!

http://www.localmusicnation.net/2012/10/11/new-band-alert-leogun/

 

Kris Orlowski & Andrew JoslynPieces We Are EP 

A singer-songwriter with a compelling baritone voice backed by a full orchestra…a full orchestra!  Do you really need more to want to give it a listen? Okay, check out this video.

 

ZZ WardTil The Casket Drops 

I remember being impressed with ZZ Ward’s soulful vocals when I saw her at SXSW last spring. Then this video for “Save My Life” featuring Michael Fitzpatrick (Fitz of Fitz and The Tantrums) crossed my path and I was compelled to share.

Other CDs I’d like to explore:

Kristen’s LA Concert Calendar: 6/24-7/1

Posted on by .

Currently listening to all the bands on the Warped Tour line-up…trying to decide if I want to go to Ventura’s date. I’m leaning towards yes, mostly because I want to see Dead Sara, but sadly I feel there are more bands on my “to avoid” list than my “to check out” list (yes, I have made lists). Regardless, I’m putting together my calendar a day early just in case…

Plenty of good shows this week. I’m most excited about seeing some local bands I haven’t seen in a while (Lovers Drugs, The Active Set, Sabrosa Purr, NO, Standing Shadows, etc.).  If you want to experience some great LA rock bands, it’s a good week to get out!
