Jenny Hval, Dinner @ Resident

sngshows: Jenny Hval and Dinner Come Together at Resident to Light Up a Dark Week Originally appeared on Grimy Goods. Words and cheesy photo edits by me. Without meaning to, Hval ended up addressing our recent election several times. She decided not to show us a video of zombies doing aerobics because it didn’t “feel appropriate,” then she stopped herself to apologize. “Everything I say … Continue reading Jenny Hval, Dinner @ Resident

A Holy Saturday Evening with Joanna Newsom

sngshows: Two Saturdays ago I had what felt like a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see Joanna Newsom live in concert. I bought a ticket somewhat late but because I only needed one, I was assigned the first available seat—I was not prepared for exactly how perfect a seat it was.  The night of the show, I was conflicted. It was a friend’s birthday, and I wanted … Continue reading A Holy Saturday Evening with Joanna Newsom

Loma Gripped Audiences at the Bootleg, Supported by Jess Williamson

Her sold out show at the Moroccan Lounge supported by … Continue reading Laughing Along with Caroline Rose at her Sold-Out LA Show

Originally appeared on Grimy Goods. Words by me, photos by Jessica Rubio. Yesterday I celebrated International Women’s Day at the Regent, where Australian folktronica artist Gordi gave everything she had. She is on tour supporting Son Lux, and last night audiences were also treated to the experimental stylings of WILLS. Each performer seemed to get lost in their sets, making the shared experience an invigorating one. … Continue reading Son Lux and Gordi Deliver Invigorating Performances at the Regent

The Weather Station Eased the Pain of LA’s World Series Loss at the Bootleg

sngshows: Originally appeared on Grimy Goods.  Walking up to the Bootleg Theater last Wednesday night, the streets were quiet. Acoustic guitar was the main feature of the night, with emphasis placed on what felt like each individual string for both acts; James Elkington needed little else aside from the instrument and his voice, though The Weather Station performed as a four piece band for the … Continue reading The Weather Station Eased the Pain of LA’s World Series Loss at the Bootleg
