Art Allora & Calzadilla: Apotom?
Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays.  Fri, Jun 27, 2014-Sun, Aug 24, 2014.  REDCAT hosts the first Los Angeles presentation by Jennifer Allora (USA, 1974) and Guillermo Calzadilla (Cuba, 1971). Collaborating since 1995, the artists are known for their experimental and interdisciplinary practice. The exhibition features one of their most recent video works, Apotom? (2013), and a new commissioned performance where the artists continue their investigation into the emerging fields of biosemiotics and biomusicology. In March 1798, two elephants, affectionately named Hans and Parkie, arrived at the National Museum of Natural History in Paris as spoils of war. That same year, on May 29th, a concert was performed in the Jardin de Plantes for the elephants. This experiment was organized not by scientists but rather by musicians, pondering if human music might elicit a reaction in non-human life forms. Allora & Calzadilla’s Apotom? departs from this historic attempt of interspecies communication set against the backdrop of the French Revolution. The very concepts of man, life, nature and the boundaries between them as defined by relations to war, captivity, slavery, and other forms of social and political domination and control emerged with new significance in this period. To this mix is added the question of music, as a possible inter-species meta-language, a proto-linguistic, non-symbolic and affective trans-human mode of communication whose basis is biological and evolutionary.

Concerts Paramore
Sat, Aug 16, 2014.  Sigh. Where do I start with this band? Many years ago, there was a small, largely unknown, girl-fronted band I interviewed at the Vans Warped Tour. Somewhere along the way, that little band that could became a top-billed headlining act, and that fiery-haired girl next door on singing duties became a stage-commanding vocal powerhouse and the face of a whole genre of music. Needless to say, I’m having a proud parent moment. And yes, I’m totally swiping some credit for helping break this band. - Brien Overly MORE >>

Concerts The Naked And Famous
Thu, Aug 21, 2014.  Admittedly, this is another one of those bands that, after hearing them as filler soundtrack on CW teen dramas, I struggled to remain committed to enjoying their music. Not to be that guy, but the day I saw eye to eye with “Gossip Girl” audiences about music was the day I vowed to quit this gig. But … screw it. A legit band with intelligently crafted songs, I just can’t find fault with it, regardless of where else I hear it. With music that’s dreamy, ethereal and atmospheric while still being infectiously catchy, I’m going to be the bigger person here and offer the New Zealanders respect for their work in bringing good music to tasteless children. - Brien Overly MORE >>

He could write an album of Top 40 hip-hop club bangers, and I’m sure it would still be the hardest rocking thing ever. Taking a classic rock style and mixing in a little bit of punk and metal, then spiking it with progressively intricate instrumentation, Queens is one of few bands whose music is always a little edgy without needing any special gimmicks to be as much. Just Homme’s unfiltered badassery. - Brien Overly MORE >>

Exhibits Anne Frank Exhibit
Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Sundays.  Almost everyone thinks they know Anne’s story. It is often referred to as a “window to the Holocaust” because it makes tangible the inconceivable nature of the systematic murder of six million Jews. The circumstances of Anne and her family were not unusual. Anne was one of a million and a half Jewish children who were murdered during the Nazi Holocaust simply because they were Jewish. But, the legacy of her diaries and essays is the ultimate lesson to confront anti-Semitism, fight hate, and speak up against persecution in the world today.

Exhibits Town Cars: Arriving in Style
Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays.  Sat, Feb 15, 2014-Sun, Feb 8, 2015.  Today, the name Town Car is closely associated with Lincoln, but that was not always the case. From the early 1900s to the mid-1960s, the term “town car” referred to a body style distinguished by an open chauffeur’s compartment and an enclosed passenger area. Elegant and dignified, they were originally intended for city use on formal occasions and were almost always the most expensive body style offered by a manufacturer. The exhibit will feature only the finest examples of these ultra-formal vehicles including Fred Astaire’s classically styled 1927 Rolls-Royce and the one-of-a-kind 1959 Scimitar by Brooks Stevens. More than mere ostentatious relics of a bygone era, they provide us with a counterpoint to today’s best luxury cars and perfectly define an era when arriving in style was the ultimate personal statement.

Exhibits Perseverance: Japanese Tattoo Tradition In a Modern World
Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays.  Sat, Mar 8, 2014-Sun, Sep 14, 2014.  The exhibit explores the artistry of traditional Japanese tattoos along with its rich history and influence on modern tattoo practices in this groundbreaking photographic exhibition. As Japanese tattoos have moved into the mainstream, the artistry and legacy of Japanese tattooing remain both enigmatic and misunderstood. Often copied by practitioners and aficionados in the West without regard to its rich history, symbolism, or tradition, the art form is commonly reduced to a visual or exotic caricature. Conversely, mainstream Japanese culture still dismisses the subject itself as underground, associating it more with some of its clientele than with the artists practicing it. Both of these mindsets ignore the vast artistry and rich history of the practice. MORE >>

Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays.  Sat, Apr 26, 2014-Sun, Aug 3, 2014.  Celebrated as one of the greatest directors of the 'golden age' of animation, Chuck Jones worked in the field some seventy years until his death at eighty?nine in 2002. His passion for drawing was both work and full time hobby. He drew for a living, and he drew for pleasure and challenge. The exhibit contains original drawings, most never publicly displayed, including a section of 50 so-called "Doodles," perhaps best described as coming from one artist's very far side.

Exhibits California Dreamin’: The Sounds of Laurel Canyon 1965 - 1977
Daily.  Fri, May 9, 2014-Sun, Nov 30, 2014.  This exhibition will explore the story of the Los Angeles rock scene from the mid-1960s to mid-1970s, a golden age of music, creativity and culture. “Laurel Canyon was as much a mindset as it was a music scene,” said GRAMMY Museum executive director Bob Santelli. “The remarkably rich sounds of Laurel Canyon and the sheer number of songwriters, bands, producers, artists, engineers and record company people who have lived and worked out of Laurel Canyon prove that Los Angeles is and continues to be a vital rock scene. We felt it was important to tell that story, right here in our hometown.” Through rare artifacts from iconic acts, interactive experiences, handwritten lyrics, photographs and more, the exhibit will teach visitors about the origins of the Laurel Canyon scene, and how it developed into a thriving music epicenter.

You shall not pick your vineyard bare, or gather the fallen fruit of your vineyard; you shall leave them for the poor and the stranger.” Fallen Fruit’s community-based projects use fruit as a medium to explore social engagement. The themes of generosity and sharing that guide their work align with the Skirball’s mission of hospitality, equality, and civility. MORE >>

Exhibits Soft Target
Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays.  Thu, Jun 26, 2014-Sat, Aug 30, 2014.  Soft Target is a group exhibition organized by Phil Chang and Matthew Porter. "With the exception of a few sculptural works, we have presented the visitor with a selection of flat surfaces. In each case, we are looking at the visual evidence of the artist’s economy of choice. None of the original context for the works exists here, no supporting material and no artist’s statement. In our drone-inflected lexicon, is diminished collateral the same thing as enhanced precision? Photography is cropping. And cutting, folding, layering, positioning and, of course, choosing. Let’s not say targeting, because that sounds too martial. In this case, when multiple subjects are depicted no one gets hurt." - Matthew Porter MORE >>

Exhibits Miljohn Ruperto: Mineral Monsters
Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays.  Mon, Jul 14, 2014-Fri, Oct 3, 2014.  In collaboration with animator Aimée de Jongh and neuroscientist Rajan Bhattacharyya, he will investigate the speculative possibilities of mineral “deformities” inspired by Georges Canguilhem’s text, Knowledge of Life. The three come together to grapple with a particular assertion by Canguilhem, a philosopher of science, that “there are no mineral monsters,” or rather that the scientific category of mineral is incompatible with human notions of deformity. Ruperto’s exhibition Mineral Monsters delves into a space wherein humans are irrelevant, unable to project their own attributes onto or against the material world. His work then troubles that space by introducing visual aspects that trigger our implicit, negative responses, such that the neutral tenor of Canghuilhem’s position shifts to a more troubling, oppositional one.

The lines that emanate from points along the border represent the guarded and embattled economic lifelines shared by neighbors in both countries. Resistance invites a discussion of the economic and political crisis of modern day Mexico while representing the frontier as a dangerous boundary. In her investigative and sculptural project titled Vortex, Armas uncovers the industrial production of state textbooks and the controversial politics embedded in its creation. Vortex identifies the convergence of knowledge and power, and points to the politically charged context of the Mexican education industry. MORE >>

Exhibits Written Image: Books & Portfolios from the Robert Gore Rifkind Ctr. for German Expressionist Studies
Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays.  Sat, Jul 26, 2014-Sun, Jan 18, 2015.  Artists, designers, and publishers frequently collaborated in early 20th-century Germany, producing portfolios, periodicals, and books that became an arena for exchange and a vehicle for promoting modernist innovations. For artists including Oskar Kokoschka and Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, prints issued as single sheets, in portfolios and in bound volumes were an expedient and flexible way of disseminating aesthetic novelties to a wide audience. Literary themes, inspired by old and modern masters, pervade these artists’ work, and were especially well suited to be developed as serial imagery. MORE >>

Exhibits Marsden Hartley: The German Paintings 1913–1915
Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays.  Sun, Aug 3, 2014-Sun, Nov 30, 2014.  This exhibition features the work of influential American modernist painter Marsden Hartley (1877–1943). Approximately twenty-five of the artist’s seminal works from his years spent in Berlin (1913–1915) reveal the profound impact of World War I and elucidate the artist's appropriation of military symbols and Native American motifs. Hartley’s paintings from this period reflect dynamic shifts in style and subject matter, and evidence a critical moment in his body of work. MORE >>

Exhibits African Cosmos: Stellar Arts
Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays.  Sun, Aug 24, 2014-Sun, Nov 30, 2014.  Originated by the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of African Art, and curated by Dr. Christine Mullen Kreamer, African Cosmos: Stellar Arts is the first major exhibition exploring the historical legacy of African cultural astronomy and its intersection with traditional and contemporary African arts. For millennia, Africans have gazed upon the celestial firmament, made sense of the heavenly bodies above them, and used their observations to chart their movements through the physical environment and regulate their agricultural and ritual calendars. MORE >>

Exhibits Variations: Conversations in and Around Abstract Painting
Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays.  Sun, Aug 24, 2014-Sun, Mar 22, 2015.  In an attention-compromised age when images are instant and prevalent, abstract painting serves as a contradiction, acting as a conduit for the mark of the original, individual artist. While most of the work in the exhibition has been recently created and acquired, additional paintings culled from LACMA’s collection illustrate how artists have reanimated techniques and forms using other sources that are appropriated from popular culture, photography, and collage, essentially creating a new variation of abstract painting. MORE >>

Exhibits Big Quilts in Small Sizes: Children's Historical Bedcovers
Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays.  Sat, Sep 13, 2014-Sun, Jan 4, 2015.  Ten dimunitive quilts chosen from the museum's collection, all of them made for children, reflect the same meticulous stitching and geometric patterns that have been used to create full-size bedcovers in the United States for centuries. The traditional art of quilting perfectly marries functionality and aesthetics; quilts provide warmth and protection while presenting strikingly beautiful decorative designs. MORE >>

Exhibits Following the Prescribed Path
Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays.  Sat, Sep 13, 2014-Sun, Nov 23, 2014.  The artists in Following the Prescribed Path took diverse journeys into both urban and natural landscapes over the course of six decades, and ultimately transformed their experiences into a range of media. While it might be counterintuitive to think that following a predetermined route is creatively stimulating, the artists in this exhibition suggest otherwise. Standing upright and walking on two legs distinguishes humans from most other animals. As long as we have been ambulatory, the urge to walk out the front door and just explore one’s environment has been part of the human psyche. Motivated by this basic desire, each of the exhibition’s seven artists embarked on such a journey, but with a twist. The artists’ routes followed a “prescribed path,” one in which the parameters were established before they ever ventured out. MORE >>

Exhibits Hammer Projects: Mario Garcia Torres
Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays.  Sat, Sep 13, 2014-Sun, Jan 4, 2015.  In 1968 the Directors Guild of America created the pseudonym Alan Smithee for directors wishing to disown potentially disastrous projects. In the intervening years, Alan Smithee has amassed one of the film and television industry’s most extensive and indistinguishable filmographies. Though the name is less common today as it once was, Alan Smithee is widely regarded as a prolific and legendary auteur, whose collection of flops made by countless filmmakers tells a story of disavowal, shame, the ambivalences of anonymity, and the cultivation of public personae. Mexico City-based artist Mario Garcia Torres’s one-act monologue, written as Smithee’s imagined tell-all, casts the fictitious director as a central protagonist in a new single-channel video. Performed by an actor whose delivery aims to embody the internal struggles of a faceless character, and filmed using a visual vocabulary inherited from professional keynote lectures, motivational speeches, and the now ubiquitous TED talk, Garcia Torres’s video speculates on Smithee’s fraught biography and explores the complex relationship between artistic work and its audiences. MORE >>

Exhibits Hammer Projects: N. Dash
Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays.  Sat, Sep 13, 2014-Sun, Jan 25, 2015.  N. Dash's work in drawing, painting, and photography is rooted in a direct experimentation with materials. Dash's use of natural materials; her repetitive handling of paper, canvas, cotton, and linen; and her intentional placement of her works within their surrounding architecture all express a commitment to a deeply formal practice. The gestures, shapes, and compositions that characterize Dash's work emerge from her research into the process of mark-making and her ongoing investigation of the act of making art. Her work can be located within the history of minimalism through their resistance of ornament and their commitment to inherent color, but Dash’s allegiances are primarily with the medium of painting, as is evidenced in her ongoing interest in surface, structure, and materials. Organized by guest curator Corrina Peipon, Hammer Projects: N. Dash is the artist's first one-person museum exhibition. MORE >>

Carter, 2013), American Hustle (Michael Wilkinson, 2013) and The Great Gatsby (Catherine Martin, 2013).

Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays.  Sun, Oct 19, 2014-Sun, Feb 1, 2015.  The exhibit presents a full-scale survey of one the most important artists of the Harlem Renaissance, featuring the painter's visual examination of African American culture during the Jazz Age. The exhibition covers Motley's entire career, including periods in Chicago, Paris, and Mexico. Motley received his formal training at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and went on to create strong and somewhat solemn portraits of his community, as well as vividly hued, lively scenes of crowded dancehalls that reflect the colorful spirit of the Harlem Renaissance. The exhibition features a number of paintings depicting the black communities of Chicago and Paris just before and after the Great Depression, and concludes with introspective moments of quotidian life in Mexico, made during the artist's travels during the 1950s.

Exhibits Larry Sultan: Here and Home
Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays.  Sun, Nov 9, 2014-Sun, Mar 22, 2015.  Larry Sultan: Here and Home is the first retrospective of California photographer Larry Sultan (1946–2009). The exhibition includes more than 100 photographs ranging from Sultan's conceptual and collaborative works of the 1970s to his solo works in the decades following. Sultan never stopped challenging the conventions of photographic documentation, exploring themes of family, home, and façade throughout his career. Five major bodies of work are represented including: Evidence (1977), made collaboratively with Mike Mandel; Swimmers (1978–81); Pictures from Home (1982–92); The Valley (1998–2003); and Homeland (2006–2009). The show is augmented by a "study hall," with documentation and ephemera providing a glimpse of Sultan’s modes of inquiry as an artist and a teacher. MORE >>

Exhibits Delacroix's Greece on the Ruins of Missolonghi
Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays.  Sun, Nov 16, 2014-Sun, Feb 15, 2015.  Painted in 1826 by Eugène Delacroix, the leading French Romantic painter of the day, Greece on the ruins of Missolonghi is one of the most celebrated French paintings of the 19th century. It was executed shortly after the event it commemorates: In 1825, during the Greek war of independence from Ottoman occupation, Turkish troops besieged the city of Missolonghi. The Greek population, already decimated by famine and epidemics, attempted a heroic liberation that ended in tragedy when the Turks killed most of the population of the city. Delacroix, like many European artists and intellectuals, was a fervent supporter of the Greek cause. Most of the painting is dedicated to the figure of Greece herself, represented as a young woman wearing traditional costume. Her posture and expression recall traditional religious images of the Virgin weeping over the body of Christ. The image of suffering Greece succeeded in conveying the plight of the Greeks to the French public. MORE >>

Exhibits Pierre Huyghe
Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays.  Sun, Nov 23, 2014-Sun, Mar 8, 2015.  This exhibition marks the first major retrospective of the work of Pierre Huyghe (b. 1962, Paris). Huyghe creates films, installations, and events that blur fact and fiction, reinvent rituals of social engagement, and use the exhibition model as a site for playful experimentation. Organized thematically, the exhibition covers more then two decades of Huyghe's career, with a focus on cinema as both model and matrix. By filming staged scenarios, Huyghe probes the capacity of art to distort and ultimately shape reality through methods that are filmic, spatial, or social. MORE >>

Film Only Lovers Left Alive
Wed, Jul 30, 2014-Sat, Aug 2, 2014.  Jim Jarmusch’s Only Lovers Left Alive tells the tale of two fragile and sensitive vampires, Adam (Tom Hiddleston) and Eve (Tilda Swinton), who have been lovers for centuries. Both are cultured intellectuals with an all-embracing passion for music, literature and science, who have evolved to a level where they no longer kill for sustenance, but still retain their innate wildness. Adam, a reclusive underground musician hiding out in the ruins of contemporary Detroit, despairs about human civilization’s decline, and worries about future survival. Eve, who is perhaps 3000 years old to Adam’s 500, takes a longer view of history and is more optimistic. She leaves her home in the ancient city of Tangier to come to his side. As blood has been tainted by the zombies (humans), the formerly immortal Adam and Eve must secure uncontaminated blood from hospitals or they will perish. Eve’s close friend, Elizabethan dramatist and unacknowledged author of Shakespeare’s plays—Christopher Marlowe (John Hurt), is now an elder vampire who provides Eve with hospital blood. Adam gets his supply from Dr. Watson (Jeffrey Wright), a skittish hematologist who provides safe blood at a price. Adam and Eve’s precarious footing is further threatened by the uninvited arrival of Eve’s carefree and uncontrollable little sister Ava (Mia Wasikowska). Unlike Adam and Eve, Ava hasn’t yet learned to tame her wilder instincts, and her recklessness concerns Adam. Opens at ArcLight Hollywood and The Landmark. MORE >>

Film Apollo 13
Fri, Aug 1, 2014.  The famous understatement was actually made twice by two astronauts. Jack Swigert said, "OK Houston, we've had a problem here." Mission Control said, "This is Houston. Say again, please." Then Jim Lovell said, "Ahh, Houston, we've had a problem." On the recording, Swigert is garbled at the beginning, while Lovell is clear, so the recording of Lovell is often heard, leading to the impression he said it, even though Swigert said it first. It's commonly misquoted as, "Houston, we've got a problem," or "Houston, we have a problem." Because "we've had" implies the problem has passed, Ron Howard chose to use "we have".

Film Alien
Wed, Aug 6, 2014.  Prior to shooting the chest-bursting scene, the actors had all been removed from the set except for alien-pregnant John Hurt, who was hooked up to an elaborate device that involved a spring-loaded cavity filled with rancid pigs' organs, multiple hoses to pump stage blood and the puppet for the alien itself, all crammed into a false chest that was bolted to the table. Hurt was placed underneath, creating the illusion that his neck really was attached to the body cavity. So the rest of the cast showed up on set knowing only that the script for this particular scene read, "The thing emerges." That's it. And the only thing the cast was told about the "thing" was that "its head will move and it will have teeth." When the rest of the actors were brought in, they evidently didn't notice that the entire film crew was wearing rain gear and hiding behind plastic shields. On the first take, the false chest convulsed slightly and a tiny bit of blood popped out. This was a false start to get everyone to lean in really close for the next take. Then, boom, they were hit with the full force of an internal organ eruption. Everybody lurched backed in shock. Veronica Cartright got it the worst, with a full-on blood bukkake. Her scream of disbelief and subsequent desperate, hysterical sobbing was all completely unrehearsed. She actually passed out before the scene was finished and they had to complete it the next day. Yaphet Kotto had to retire to his room and get his blood pressure down or he might have had a heart attack. MORE >>

The exhibition features over 300 fossils, 20 full body specimens, manual and digital interactives, and large-format video. In addition to the T. rex series (an adult, juvenile, and baby), the exhibition’s standouts include an imposing Triceratops, a 68-foot long-necked Mamenchisaurus, and giant reptiles that lived in the oceans covering what is today California.

Music Xiu Xiu
Today.  Those familiar with the band’s work will take particular note of the times Jamie Stewart re-visits profoundly personal accounts from his own life—most prominently on “Beauty Towne” (a not-so-uplifting postscript to the muddle of those depicted in “Clowne Towne” from 2004’s Fabulous Muscles) and “Black Drum Machine” (which finishes the narrative of incest and molestation begun on “Black Keyboard” from 2008’s Women as Lovers). Elsewhere, Stewart’s willingness to broach any subject finds him confronting both the topical and the intimate in equally meaningful ways: “Gul Mudin” seeks to bring comfort to an Afghani teenage boy murdered for sport by American soldiers; “Joey’s Song” strives to do the same for Stewart’s brother in the aftermath of a family tragedy.

Music Saint Motel
Sat, Aug 2, 2014.  When attempting to verbalize the emotionality of indie music, the first things that come to mind might reasonably be “serious,” “moody,” “bleak,” “butt-hurting,” “sob-story” … you get the idea. It’s an unfortunate rarity that “fun” will come up as an option on the allowed list of adjectives. Because indie music can’t be fun, right? Otherwise it’s decisively pop, right? Whatever. The Los Angeles-bred foursome just might be the proverbial bright spot in the modern indie scene that proves. - Brien Overly MORE >>

Music The Muffs
Sat, Aug 2, 2014.  The group is made up of Kim Shattuck (Lead Vocals & Guitar), Ronnie Barnett (Bass & Backing Vocals) & Roy McDonald (Drums).

After singles released by Sub Pop, Au Go-Go & Sympathy For The Record Industry, the band recorded three critically acclaimed albums (The Muffs, Blonder & Blonder & Happy Birthday To Me) for Warner Brothers/Reprise.

Music 311
Sun, Aug 3, 2014.  I still have a soft place in my heart for 311 that my inner early teenager will likely forever cling to. Back in the days when MTV played music videos and, even more, those from legitimately innovative rock bands (for the time period), 311 was the jam. It was a much simpler time for rock music. A less contentious time. And a less pretentious one as well. Rock music still had a grander sense of epicness and importance to it. It was adults playing radical music, not children pretending to be adults by dressing up like radicals. So even though I’ve admittedly fallen by the wayside in recent years in terms of keeping up with their later releases, the nostalgia of the era 311 represents makes them iconic as a rock band. Also, for those who’ve never been to one of their shows, it’s a serious party. Like, just a few red plastic cups short of a college keg party, kind of party. - Brien Overly [With special guest Wheeland Brothers] MORE >>

They later met Brooke Payne, a local manager and choreographer, who encountered the boys at a local talent show in Roxbury. After an audition for Payne, he gave them the name New Edition to signify they were a new edition of the Jackson 5. Rackley left the group and was replaced by another neighborhood friend Ralph Tresvant, who both Bell and Brown were already acquainted with and sang with Ricky in a group called Ricky & Ralph. Travis Pettus would also eventually leave the group as well. Later, Payne brought in his nephew Ronnie DeVoe to replace Pettus as the group's fifth member. MORE >>

Music Black Rebel Motorcycle Club (Rock)
Thu, Aug 7, 2014.  I was going to start off by making a joke that was something along the lines of the Twilight franchise wishing they could make dark and brooding look as sexy and cool as BRMC make it sound. Then, I saw they actually had a song on the New Moon soundtrack, and all logic escaped me. But hey, even generally talented and awesome people sometimes get attached to moneymaking juggernauts, and I can’t really blame them for that. They’ve got to keep gas in their tour buses, after all. And if it’s good enough for Thom Yorke to attach his name to, who am I to disparage it? Point being, BRMC makes some really solid atmospheric rock. Possibly best consumed under the influence of mind-altering substances (not that I would know firsthand or anything), the trio can write and play a psychedelic jam session like nobody’s business. Each of the three band members finds time to shine on specific tracks, depending on the pacing of the song, from the slower, more haunting, guitar-focal tracks, to the more aggressive, drum and vocal-driven ones. And if there was ever an appropriately dark and brooding-friendly venue to see these guys play at, it is undoubtedly the Echoplex. - Brien Overly MORE >>

Music Gardens & Villa
Fri, Aug 8, 2014.  "With a lyric sheet that's preoccupied with nature and mysticism-- not to mention a singer who's not afraid to whip out a flute-- Gardens & Villa could easily be pegged as hippies. But they're also keen on playing up the artificial qualities of their music, foregrounding synthesizers and mechanized, metronomic rhythms to create a peculiar hybrid of 1960s and 80s sensibilities." - Pitchfork MORE >>

Music RX Bandits
Fri, Aug 8, 2014.  So, have Rx Bandits always been good? Because I’m going to feel like a massive d-bag if that’s the case and I’m like, 13 years late on this train. They’ve always been that band in the periphery of my chosen music scene, the band that I never really gave a serious listen to and never really cared much about until now. I don’t even have a good reason for blocking them out of my aural field, like that I have a secret feud with one of the members or that one of them has some kind of Disney affiliation, which are the usual reasons I purposefully ignore bands. Maybe it was some of the genre tags that have been loosely thrown around in association to them. Maybe it was some of the early touring mates the band associated with. Maybe I’m even more pretentious with my taste than I give myself credit for. But then, if that were the case, I would’ve totally started this show pick off by claiming I’ve been into this band since I was in high school, as is the case with some other d-bag writers. Instead, I’ll own up to the fact that I wish I would’ve discovered this band a lot earlier than I did, despite them being on the Required Listening playlist for anyone entering the punk rock scene. Specifically the Warped Tour scene, at that. These dudes can write a catchy melodic rock song that sounds mature while being anything but “adult contemporary.” Drawing from a multitude of stylistic influences, these guys have been playing for well over a decade and the years of practice show in their craftsmanship. - Brien Overly MORE >>

Music Chris Cornell
Fri, Aug 22, 2014.  I know he’s taken some flack over the last few years, but really, this man is one of the main reasons I got into rock music when I was but a wee young’un. Soundgarden is also one of precious few bands I listened to in my pre-teen years that doesn’t make me shudder when I retrospectively look at my sometimes-awful taste in music at that age. For that, I’m willing to overlook some of what came later. - Brien Overly MORE >>

Music David and Devine

Music Chris Cornell
Mon, Aug 25, 2014.  While so many of us look at our early adolescent musical tastes with embarrassment and disdain, often rightfully so, Chris Cornell is one I still wholeheartedly stand by. At the risk of dating myself, I’ll be the first to admit how utterly ridiculous the music that comprised my ’90s adolescence really was. Like, really truly awful. Why KROQ rotates the same 20 songs from that era as if they were the new Rihanna single, I’ll never understand, but that’s tangential. Cornell, as Soundgarden’s frontman, was my gateway into rock music. Had he not set me on the right path, I might’ve turned out to be one of those people who thinks Ke$ha’s music is worthwhile. Shudder. - Brien Overly MORE >>

Music Panic! At the Disco
Tue, Aug 26, 2014.  I can already tell I’m probably going to regret including this show in here, but if I worried about what people thought of me when they read Frequency anymore, I’d never get this column out every week. There are probably guiltier musical pleasures I’ve written about anyway, but this one’s something of a personal defeat. I lost. I gave into the man. I don’t hate Panic! At the Disco anymore. There was a time when I would sing their flaws and faults so gloriously and with such superiority. I was riding high on the hater-train, I admit. But then something happened along the way. I can’t place my finger exactly on what or when, but all of a sudden, I lost all that rage. It was like the red fog just lifted one day after they split down the middle. I didn’t particularly dislike either of the two groups that the former band splintered into, but when the four were together, for some reason, the venom flowed freely in my Word documents. Now that they’ve matured, endured a little hardship, aren’t so oversaturated, I feel a little more comfortable giving them a fair shake. I mean, I’m still 100 percent OK with not being around for the teen girl Panic craze that happened when they started out, but now that their fan base is likewise a little older, I might be will to venture out to this show. The few times I have seen them in the last many years, they … might have impressed me. Just a little. Despite my skepticism and cynicism. Much to their credit, remaining members Brendon Urie and Spencer Smith have always been the best parts of Panic’s live show as the most visually dynamic half. It seems the musicianship has only gotten better lately, so it might be fair to assume that their live show has likewise been stepped up as well, making them one of few bands from their scene that might actually be able to outlast their trendiness. - Brien Overly MORE >>

Music Men Without Hats
Wed, Aug 27, 2014.  Songwriter Ivan Doroschuk has explained that "The Safety Dance" was a protest against bouncers stopping dancers pogoing to 1980s New Wave music in clubs when disco was dying and New Wave was up and coming. New Wave dancing, especially pogoing, was different from disco dancing, because it was done individually instead of with partners and involved holding the torso rigid and thrashing about. To uninformed bystanders, this could look dangerous, especially if pogoers accidentally bounced into one another (the more deliberately violent evolution of pogoing is slam dancing). MORE >>

Music The Spazmatics
Fri, Aug 29, 2014.  The fun foursome pulls out all the biggest hits of the '80s. While most of them were obvious -- "C'mon Eileen," "Rebel Yell," "I Love Rock n' Roll," "Sweet Dreams," "Jesse's Girl," "Footloose" -- what set them apart from your average bar-variety hit rockers is the way they rendered the retro. They used synchronized choreography, mini-mashup moments infusing riffs from current hits, and lots of audience participation. MORE >>

Music Matisyahu
Sat, Aug 30, 2014.  Let’s be honest, for many of us, going to see a Hasidic Jewish hip-hop-reggae artist perform is about as close as we’re going to get to cultural enrichment this week. Fear not though, he had a Top 40 hit, and the venue serves alcohol, so you can still pretend you’re a too-cool celebrity while listening to a dude sing about the Torah. - Brien Overly MORE >>

Music Wild Child
Sat, Aug 30, 2014.  Faithfully re-creating a live Doors concert on stage, the music is painstakingly reproduced and combined with the voice, look and essence of Jim Morrison live on stage (performed by lead singer Dave Brock).

Music City and Colour
Thu, Sep 4, 2014.  I oft reference the shortlist of singer-songwriters who can reduce my otherwise snarky and jaded ass to a sniffling and weepy-eyed state only properly communicated via emoticon faces. With his signature soft and introspective crooning, City and Colour frontman Dallas Green usually places solidly within the top two spots of that list, the only candidate capable of giving Thrice’s Dustin Kensrue a legitimate battle for my affections. As such, I’m equally stoked and dreading his arrival at one of my favorite L.A. venues. I mean, considering the lack of love SoCal got from Green last year between City and his other act Alexisonfire, I’m of course very happy he’s finally making an appearance at a more intimate venue. On the other hand, it means a whole lot of people are going to see me badly fake having something in my eye(s) or having an allergic response to … something. You guys know how I am about maintaining my icy exterior of elitism around others. Dallas doesn’t afford me that decorum, so you understand my dilemma here. Though Green’s lyrics are heart-wrenchingly brutal in their honesty and vulnerability at times, he’s also a master of pulling out the optimism when things get too heavy, so I think I’ll have to take my chances. And if you happen to see me at the show in what appears to be a weakened emotional state, I’ll preemptively offer this: It’s because I have an … eye infection … and I was probably sweating, and you didn’t see nothing, you hear? - Brien Overly MORE >>

Music Mother Falcon

Music Senses Fail
Thu, Sep 4, 2014.  ...These guys have been in this game for a long time now and they’ve been continuously improving their craft since their inception, writing some of the catchiest rock this side of Warped Tour. More importantly, they do it without the gimmickry, like having to wear more neon than a ’90s raver kid or having to use packaged synth beats last heard pre-programmed into a Casio keyboard. So while the rest of their less seasoned contemporaries fade out into obscurity as quickly as they rose to the top of 14-year-old girls’ iPod playlists, these dudes will still be around making solid rock music. While they may sound like a lot of other bands doing similar things on first listen, each additional listen gives something new to hear in those same songs. And though frontman Buddy Nielsen’s vocal wailing may seem simplistic in how infectious it is, some of those lyrics are just emotionally brutal when you really listen to them. That’s the mark of real artistry, when the songs can be aurally memorable and still resonate after the song is over. - Brien Overly MORE >>

Music Atmosphere
Fri, Sep 5, 2014-Sat, Sep 6, 2014.  For a dude who seems kind of perpetually pissed off at the world, hip-hop aficionado Atmosphere sure has a talent for bringing out the deepest, innermost emotions within himself and his listeners. While other arena venue rhyme-slingers are hailed as the “saviors of modern hip-hop” just because they don’t turn the AutoTune up to 11 on every track, Atmosphere actually brings legitimacy, integrity and intellectualism back to hip-hop. Because let’s be clear about something, an angry white dude yelling at a camera in music videos doesn’t equate to being groundbreaking by virtue of those qualities alone. Lyricism that is both introspective and externally critical of culture and society, that isn’t afraid to show vulnerability while still being unfiltered and raw, and that can read like both diary pages and literary prose at the same time, that’s what hip-hop should be about. Please don’t let any hip-hop TV or radio stations tell you otherwise. Frontman Slug will happily tell it like it is instead. - Brien Overly MORE >>

Music Beck
Fri, Sep 5, 2014.  Two of Beck's most popular and acclaimed recordings are Odelay (1996) and Sea Change (2002).

MORE >>

Music Elvis Costello
Fri, Sep 5, 2014-Sat, Sep 6, 2014.  Since I mentioned an iconic act from across the pond a few lines up, I have to be fair by not forgetting about one of the great rock legends America has to offer, the one and only Elvis Costello. Wait … you mean he’s not American? Oh. News to me. I guess that’s why journalists are supposed to do that “research” thing or whatever it’s called before they write articles. I guess if the Depeche Mode pick didn’t date me and stamp my forehead with a bright red “uncultured youth,” this surely will. Regardless, he’s been rocking like nobody’s business for nearly 40 years now, and both Dustin Kensrue and Jenny Lewis are down with the Costello, so that’s good enough for me. In the meantime, I’ll continue to let Twitter be my filter and supplier for anything I need to know about happenings in the outside world. - Brien Overly MORE >>

Music The Horrors
Wed, Oct 15, 2014.  While I’ve always kind of been into U.K. indie act the Horrors, there have been a few times the band’s work felt slightly on the self-indulgent side of the indie spectrum. Which, if I’m looking for, I would rather just Google “Brooklyn band bios” or some such and know that I’m heading into pretentious d-bag territory beforehand. Somewhere along the way though, especially with the release of the band’s latest album in July, the band has managed to grow on me significantly. Taking a more direct approach to their brand of melancholic synth-pop, the fivesome are more in the vein of fellow UK heavyweights White Lies and Interpol than the more scenester-equivalent bands from across the pond. Frontman Faris Badwan’s monotone punk-laced wails bring just enough cool to set an aural mood in their music without treading too far into posturing territory, while his band’s synth and bass-heavy instrumentation likewise can create a dark and moody atmosphere effortlessly. It’s hard enough to get really new and fresh U.K. rock acts who haven’t been pushed through the filter of accessibility by the grace of major label and mainstream media backing, so this might be a good opportunity to jump on a bandwagon that’s actually going somewhere before everyone else catches on. - Brien Overly MORE >>

Music Of Montreal
Thu, Oct 16, 2014.  Just listening to of Montreal, you wouldn’t expect their live show to be as crazy and off the wall as it is. I mean, it’s very catchy, infectious pop, with stream of consciousness style lyrics that beg to be sung along to and frontman Kevin Barnes signature deadpan monotone mixed with the occasional falsetto. Semi-quirky, fun pop, end of story – until you see them play live. That’s when the magic happens. Without wanting to spoil too much, suffice to say it’s … what people who don’t do drugs think doing drugs is like. - Brien Overly MORE >>

Music Broken Bells
Fri, Oct 24, 2014-Sat, Oct 25, 2014.  Sometimes, when multiple musicians who are each masterfully skilled come together, the results are … masterfully disappointing. Too much ego, not enough artistry, as the case often is. Luckily, Danger Mouse and the Shins’ James Mercer are much better than that, with their work as Broken Bells arguably being some of the best music either has in their respective bodies of work. Artfully arranged, sweeping and emotive, the perfect score for that introspective indie film you say defines you when you need some cred, Broken Bells’ music is still infectiously catchy above all else. What that means is that, essentially, the songs are going to be as good live as they are on the album, if not better. - Brien Overly MORE >>

Music The Kills
Fri, Oct 31, 2014.  My love for Alison Mosshart started by virtue of my love for all Jack White projects with my first listening to the Dead Weather, but since then, it has evolved into so much more. I would wager it’s to the point that, dare I say it, Ms. Mosshart might just have surpassed White on my heart’s seasonal rankings. I may have been late to the Kills game here, but it goes without saying that White might be the only dude in rock music who could even hope to share a stage with Mosshart. No frontman of a lesser caliber could hope to be anything but completely upstaged by Mosshart’s stage presence and vocal ability. And even then, the more I jam to the Kills, the more I forget the Dead Weather has a male vocalist. Or something. Whatever, can’t be bothered. Readers, please don’t tell Jack about this, he would never understand. With her signature sultry presence, Mosshart as a master of setting a mood with her voice and being an emotive storyteller while still being a complete and utter badass. Her signature mix of gritty howls and whisky-soaked crooning can go from dark and haunting to infectiously catchy, and couldn’t be a more perfect L.A. soundtrack, despite her East Coast origins. Similarly, guitarist Jamie Hince is a master at his chosen instrument, with his low-production style perfectly mirroring the rawness of Mosshart’s vocals. Together, the two making a bigger sounding album than you’d ever think only two musicians were capable of, and have an abundance of performance skill to match. Above all else, though, Mosshart is a perfect example of how frontwomen can be completely rock ’n’ roll without being trashy, and be sexy without objectifying themselves or sacrificing their artistry. This is what girls who front bands should aspire to. - Brien Overly MORE >>

Music Jimmy Eat World
Sun, Nov 2, 2014.  I’m going to make a bit of a bold statement here: Sometimes Jimmy Eat World bums me out. Before you jump to conclusions though, this is not going to be an “I hate all their new music” rant, because I don’t. And because I already do plenty of those rants elsewhere for other bands, but that’s beside the point. Jimmy Eat World bums me out sometimes because there’s not a single other band in this scene of music that can evoke feelings of nostalgia the way these guys do. They couldn’t personalize the universal experience of growing up any more if they had torn pages directly out of your own diary for lyrical quote-age. Frontman Jim Adkins is a master at evoking all those awkward transitional emotions that are a part of coming into adulthood, just as his band mates are themselves masters of backing him with instrumentation that is as timeless as Adkins’ words. - Brien Overly MORE >>

Sat, Nov 8, 2014.  On December 12, 1992, Newton hit #1 on the Cashbox Pop and Country charts with the Elvis inspired song, "The Letter."

Music Foster the People
Fri, Nov 14, 2014.  I have to admit, and this is probably going to sound really bad, but … I’m so glad Foster the People is an L.A. band and not a European band. Specifically Swedish or British. Upon hearing the band early on, I was absolutely sure that, despite how horrifically catchy their songs were, they were going to be completely static and emotionless with their stage presence, as is so often the case with the more electronically-inclined indie pop bands. Luckily, as only local indie bands really know how to do, these dudes know how to bring the intensity when they play and give a full performance. They’re not afraid to get a little sweaty, they’re not afraid to show a little emotion and most importantly, they’re not afraid to have a little fun on stage and look like they actually enjoy what they’re doing. I know, God forbid you don’t look too cool to play your own music in this modern indie culture, but hey, at least the native threesome sound the part. - Brien Overly MORE >>

Thu, Dec 11, 2014.  Even if she had never graced the “Idol” stage and showed herself to be light years ahead of this season’s d-bags, season seven alum Brooke White is a masterfully skilled musician in her own right. Behind a piano, a guitar or just flying solo with her voice, White has an unparalleled ability to emote and show a relatable vulnerability in her music. And if there’s one thing I love almost as much as a rock ’n’ roll girl who can tear up a stage, it’s a girl who can work an acoustic guitar while crooning out those secret emo inclinations I don’t display in the presence of other adults.  - Brien Overly MORE >>

Sat, Nov 22, 2014.  The Victory Bell was originally from an old Southern Pacific railroad locomotive. It was given to the UCLA student body by the UCLA Alumni Association in 1939. It was UCLA's symbol of victory until it was stolen by a USC organization called the Trojan Knights in 1941. After being hidden in various locations for over a year before resurfacing in a USC student magazine (known as the Wampus), a prank war between the two universities ensued until 1942, when the student body presidents of the two schools agreed that the bell would be the trophy awarded the winner of the annual UCLA-USC football game.

Theatre The Blind Date Project
Wednesdays.  The apprehension of going on a blind date is suddenly compounded when a group of people – you the audience – gather to witness an improvised meeting between two complete strangers in a karaoke bar. The premise is simple – or so it seems. A woman sits alone waiting for her date to arrive. That date is a different performer every night. The catch? The actress, AFI award winner Bojana Novakovic, has no idea who she is about to meet. Guided only by text messages and phone calls and interspersed with random songs, each performance promises to be as unpredictable as it is dangerous. The daringly devised encounters are devoid of scripts or rehearsals and no two shows are ever the same. Things may turn out to be humiliating, tender or totally hot. MORE >>

Recently paroled Oshoosi Size seeks to jumpstart his life. Working in an auto repair shop for his brother Ogun, however, was not what he had in mind. When his old friend Elegba rolls up, offering a different direction, Oshoosi quickly finds himself torn between his brother, his loyalties and his dreams. It’s an exuberantly theatrical drama that weaves together the pulsing rhythms of the Louisiana bayou with African Yoruba mythology to create a stylized story of love and heartache. MORE >>

My life began to change when I wrote a play about my life staring in 2005.” For Zimmerman, it’s been worth the wait as the show is being seen by audiences nationwide.
