LA natives Juliette Commagere and The Bird and the Bee double-head El Rey

Opening up a sold-out performance for The Bird and The Bee at the El Rey theater last Friday night, Juliette Commagere, the former vocalist of Hello Stranger now dropping her first solo album “Queens Die Proudly,” found herself straddling a piano stool in a coquettish red satin dress –her high cheek bones only exceeded by her higher melodies. Finding quite the balance between her lyrical laments and the sprightly brattle of percussionist Joachim Cooder, her tone somehow manages to breach poignant without being utterly hopeless, a feat many indie-rockers have yet to tame.  Click here to continue.


Moonrats live in Spaceland for month of March

Wondering what to do next week when all your favorite L.A. bands pack their bags and fly the coop to Austin’s SXSW festival? Easy—Spaceland’s Monday-night residency features a palatable blend of indie grunge, experimental bubble-gum pop, and hand-clap folk. The Moonrats will play gratis in front of the sparkly curtain for the next three Mondays, joined by other L.A. notables Corridor on the 15th, He’s My Brother, She’s My Sister on the 22nd, and Pizza! and Warpaint on the 30th. So you don’t have to go through withdrawal for very long.


Rooney Set to Release "Eureka" on June 8th

Everyone's favorite pop punk quintet is poised to release it's third full length album, "Eureka" on June 8th.  Rooney has taken control with this album, completely producing it themselves.  This control has elicited their most creative and original material to date.  A band since 1999, Rooney has expertly honed their sound to a tee.  Their infectious songs would make a perfect soundtrack to summer.  Parting ways from Geffen, "Eureka" will be released on California Dreaming Records through Warner Music Group's Independent Label Group.  Mark June 8th on your calendars Ladies and Gentlemen, you won't want to miss this.   


Whirling Damsel

Ever feel that as an Angeleno you’re a part of a melancholy circus of queer characters in a reality that rivals the oddity of your own dreamscapes? Whether you do or not, Eliza Rickman is providing an eerie yet mysteriously playful sound for you sad clowns out there. With a classically storybook voice (think Tori Amos, Feist) and her toy piano, Rickman creates beautifully weird lullabies that will intrigue you. The ringmaster will be on stage at the Hotel Café with her band Friday March 19.
