It's not for fear of getting all but absolutely swept away by Blue Hawaii that we're back extolling the virtues of the Montréal-based duo comprising Agor Cowan and Raphaelle Standell-Preston, for to paraphrase Mykki Blanco everything they touch turns to motherfuckin' gold. And live, whether that aptly be at Club Motherfucker's 10th anniversary celebrations or at last weekend's The Great Escape , is when they really come into their own: they cut loose and positively lacerate the itself sublime Untogether LP of earlier on in the year, only to recompose it [...]

Photos and words by Sam Saturday What better remedy could there be for a shitty week than a show filled with fizzy pop tunes performed by adorable dudes styled in gold sequined blazers? Amid glowing lanterns and a giant orb (transformed by projections into an all-seeing eye ball, a girl bobbing her head along with the music, and various animations) Detroit's Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. enlightened the El Rey on Thursday in support of its Patterns EP. Daniel Zott and Joshua Epstein had bodies swaying right from the start, especially with new single “If [...]
Photos and words by Ethan Shvartzman After working and touring their asses off - opening for Muse, Garbage and others, locals Dead Sara headlined the El Rey Theatre. The band set the venue ablaze with a larger-than-life, in-your-face set which included an incredible cover of Rage Against the Machine's "Killing in the Name." The show was sold out (of course) and was packed with a sweaty crowd who danced, rocked, and moshed. All the while, leader singer Emily Armstrong felt as if she were flying over our heads like a rock goddess, supported by her [...]
Photos and words by Leslie Kalohi Shuggie Otis, the man, the myth, the legend, finished his U.S. tour promoting Inspiration Information / Wings of Love with a stop at El Rey Theatre. Otis impressed the LA crowd with his trademark sound, a smooth take on blues/funk/soul. Many couldn’t help but groove and dance along - the night a celebration of a man kept in the shadows for far too long. Now front and center and backed by a seven-piece band, Shuggie Otis and his musical prowess are now both in the spotlight, [...]
Photos and words by Scott Sheff For Foals’ fans, it’s been an excruciating long 2 ½ years since the British pop/punk rockers played a local gig in LA. But thanks to a double weekend of Coachella and some time to kill in between gigs, the Oxford-quintet returned to The El Rey Theater for a wild and memorable night before a sold-out crowd of giddy fans. There are a few things you can expect lead singer/guitarist Yannis Philippakis to do: shredding his guitar on stage while walking in circles like a dog looking for a place to [...]
Celebrating the release of their latest album Infestissumam, Ghost B.C. haunted the El Rey Theatre with a ghastly set. Ghost B.C. worked through such songs as "Con Clavi Con Dio", "Prime Mover", "Elizabeth", "Ritual", "Year Zero", and"Monstrous Clock" . Fortunately, I sent Todd Nakamine to take these unholy photos. Make sure to catch them this weekend at Coachella. Hopefully, they will come back around again soon.
Photos and words by Debi Del Grande The spirit of Woody Guthrie must have been smiling and doing a supersonic boogie at the El Rey Theatre as well-known English singer/songwriter/activist/gui tarist Billy Bragg brought his best, his beard and his band to lovers of his storytelling. Many songs from his latest (and a little less political, but Guthrie infused) Tooth and Nail l were played, including "No One Knows Nothing Anymore," "Do Unto Others," "There Will be a Reckoning," and the very beautiful "I Ain't Got No Home." Bragg's humorous stories of shaking hands with [...]

Photos and words by Melissa Moore Besides winning points for being in my backyard, the El Rey has the ability to pull out a magical performance from the band and an equally lovely response from the crowd. Not that the Black Lips need any help in that arena as LA loves the adorable southern crew. Shenanigans were at a minimum, as long as you don't count guitarist Cole Alexander alternately spitting at the photographers and impressively hocking loogies into the air before catching them again in his mouth, or the girl in the No Age t-shirt stage [...]

Photos and words by Leslie Kalohi Avant-garde. Experimental. Strange. Weird. These are all words used to describe the unconventional music/visual collective known as The Residents. In celebration of the group’s 40th anniversary, The Residents reveal a past that has long been shrouded in mystery with the Wonder of Weird tour. Although, by the end of the day, who is to really say what is actually the truth? With a set spanning almost two hours, the El Rey Theatre saw a wide range of fans of all ages, both newcomers [...]
Photos and words by Debi Del Grande Oi! This genre of punk was started by the Cockney Rejects back in the day. The El Rey's walls almost blew out as the English band was joined by LA's Youth Brigade. Although a barricade was present, it could barely contain the fans who busted out in mohawks, leather and spikes. The combination of both these bands had the crowd going nuts with a massive circle pit, fists in the air and maybe a fist that landed on a couple of noses. West Ham supporters recognized "I'm [...]

Photos and words by Debi Del Grande The Ra Ra Riot that stood on stage this week at the El Rey was in a much sweeter spot than last year at the same venue. Wes Miles (lead vox) said it was a crazy crazy time last year, after losing his voice and cancelling several shows accompanied by the departure of cellist and founding member Alexandra Lawn. And, well, they were afraid to play that show. Cut to this week as the band stood on the same stage before a [...]

Photos and words by Leslie Kalohi At 73-years young, English singer-songwriter Ian Hunter (backed by The Rant Band) proved he could still rock out like his younger, modern-day counterparts at the El Rey. With a career spanning over 40 years, Hunter showed no signs of slowing down. Moving between guitar, keyboard, and harmonica, the former Mott the Hoople frontman never removed his sunglasses. Combining classics like “Once Bitten, Twice Shy” and “All the Young Dudes” with new songs from last year’s release, When I’m President, the night moved at a [...]
