Men Without Hats
Today
West Hollywood
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 >>

Colin Hay
Thu, Aug 28, 2014
Los Angeles
His biggest hit, "Down Under," from when he was with men at Work, contains many slang and drug terms in the lyrics: "Travelling in a fried-out Kombi, on a hippie trail, head full of zombie." In Australian slang, "fried-out" means overheated, Kombi refers to the Volkswagen Type 2 combination van, and having "a head full of zombie" refers to the use of a type of marijuana. Cultural slang is also used: after the second verse the refrain is "where the beer does flow and men chunder"; "chunder" means vomit. More >>

Borgore
Sat, Aug 30, 2014
Los Angeles
“There is a confounding power in losing your mind for a few hours, especially when that experience is by way of Borgore. The bass-heavy and musically jacked-up dubstep DJ and producer is unequivocally matched in this ability; his beats have a disjointedness about them, yet he is consistent enough that the unsettledness soon becomes raucously groovy. Borgore's beats slam the body, the eardrums, and everything in between. He is there to transport his audience into a rowdy, fast-paced nirvana, where scantily-clad dancers and stunning lights are perfectly attuned to the grimy beats pouring through the speakers.” - Eleanor Lambert, Village Voice More >>

Matisyahu
Sat, Aug 30, 2014
Riverside
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 >>

Warm Soda
Sat, Aug 30, 2014
Los Angeles
Perfecting the blend of glitter and grime that earned Bare Wires a soft spot in the hearts of the bubblegum-popping, foot-stomping masses, Matthew Melton joins with bassist Chase Asmussen, guitarist Rob Good, and drummer Ian McBrayer as Warm Soda.

This also sparked interest in other Fuel songs, which began to appear in the Top 100 download chart on iTunes. On March 3, 2006, judge Randy Jackson stated in an interview that Daughtry had been offered the opportunity to become Fuel's new lead singer. Fuel confirmed their interest on their official website and on May 11, 2006, band members appeared on the TV show Extra to officially offer Daughtry the job. Though flattered, Daughtry turned down this offer. More >>

City and Colour
Thu, Sep 4, 2014
Los Angeles
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 >>

Senses Fail
Thu, Sep 4, 2014
West Hollywood
...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 >>

Atmosphere
Fri, Sep 5, 2014-Sat, Sep 6, 2014
Los Angeles
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 >>

Big Sam's Funky Nation

More >>

Elvis Costello
Fri, Sep 5, 2014-Sat, Sep 6, 2014
Los Angeles
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 >>

We Are Scientists
Sun, Sep 7, 2014
Pomona
A recurring theme in my contributions to this week’s issue seems to be the concept of appropriate venue sizing for bands, as you might have read elsewhere and will surely read more of a few lines down. Usually, these monologues are dominated by me pretentiously complaining that the bands I like are playing venues too big, that I don’t want to share my bands with other, lesser fans, and generally standing on my proverbial porch, ready to turn the hose on any youth daring enough to get close to my figurative property. But this … this is more than I could ask for. A super legit indie band in a super legit, tiny venue? Yes, please. So much yes. Completely dance-able and completely sing-along-able, this band is all kinds of awesome. Infectiously catchy, you’ll still be singing the lyrics days after this show, but they’re good enough that you’ll never hit that point where you’re ready to take an ice pick to your brain to try and get it out. Trust me, you’ll be more than happy to let their songs hang out in there for a good while. - Brien Overly More >>

"For all the spooky, disembodied white noise and echoing haunted-house vocals he lays on top of his songs, {King Dude] is at heart a 1950s nostalgist, a sort of undead Chris Isaak with a weakness of sock-hop balladry..., chicken-scratch rockabilly...and twangy guitars that ring wondrously like church bells set against a full moon." - Pitchfork More >>

The Rangers - heard almost every week on the popular FX drama "Sons of Anarchy," and prominently featured on Columbia Records' soundtrack album for the show - wouldn't be out of place hanging at the Teller-Morrow clubhouse in Charming, CA.

West Hollywood
When asked what his real name was and where he was originally from, Slow Magic kindly explained why he never bothers with such details. “Not to sound rude about it, but the reason I wanted it to be this way from the start was that so people get focused on the music before they focus on a state or a location or a story,” he says. “I wanted to challenge the way music could be presented. I’m not the first anonymous musician but it’s fun for me to try and figure out things sometimes with other bands and other musicians too.” Not only does the anonymity appeal to Slow Magic’s performance as an artist, but it also keeps him from being pigeon-holed into specific genres of music.

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.

Chuck Ragan
Thu, Sep 18, 2014
Los Angeles
If it’s not Dustin, it’s Jesse. And if it’s not Jesse, it’s Dallas. If not Dallas, then Chuck. It would seem the frontmen of my favorite bands are all conspiring together. For what cause, you might ask? To make sure that when one of them takes a break from touring or writing music, another is ready to fill his spot so that there is no month left in the year that I don’t hear some bit of music that will make me wish to take a dagger to the heart because of the futility of life and love. I’m also convinced that’s why they’ll never all tour together, despite my years of attempting to will it to happen via this column. Existential conspiracy theories aside, former Hot Water Music frontman Chuck Ragan knows how to work whatever instrument he picks up to elicit a visceral response out of his audience. Whether it’s a guitar or just his bare whiskey-and-sandpaper voice, Ragan is a masterful emotional storyteller. If you don’t buy into my allegations, see these guys live and tell me you’re not a believer too when this show is over. And if nothing else, the inevitable film adaptation of my theory will at least be better than The Da Vinci Code was. - Brien Overly More >>

The Cerny Brothers

The Cerny Brothers have been playing music together since they were just young bucks, coming up together in a rural Illinois town. While the music itself has taken on different forms over the years, it has always had one simple and cellular foundation in which it is firmly based: brotherhood. That’s right; there are no gimmicks or posturing to be found here. Since the release of their debut album Dream (recorded and produced by Eric Fink of nationally acclaimed act The Giving Tree Band at Crooked Creek Records), brothers Robert and Scott have been hard at work in Los Angeles. In a short amount of time, they have been building a loyal following and turning heads with their energetic, yet intimate live shows. After initially performing as a duo, the brothers were honored to welcome drummer Cody Fontes and upright bassist Gabe Davis to the family. More >>

I usually tend to only like my indie folk music in small dive-y clubs, playing to similarly small crowds, but I suppose when your particular brand of indie folk is of the big-sounding, orchestral, Rufus-Wainwright-on-a-road-trip-through-the-American-Midwest variety, you’re going to need something a little bigger than those kinds of venues to contain it.

Interpol
Mon, Sep 22, 2014
Pomona
My God what I would give to raid the collective closets of the members of Interpol. I imagine it would be the closest approximation to living every day in a GQ photo shoot that one could humanly achieve. I mean … sick chord progressions … bro… Clotheshorsing aside, the best thing about Interpol is that they really do match their impeccable styling with musical artistry of the highest caliber. They’ve been doing this band thing for-ever, and they’ve only gotten better with age. While so many of their indie-retro revival scene mates came and went without so much as a whisper of a hit single, the NYC natives have outlasted both critics and copycats. The band’s newest album is arguably some of their best work yet, and possibly also their catchiest without feeling the least bit forced. A feat that may in fact be even more impressive than the band’s suit and tie collection. Which, y’know, is saying a lot. - Brien Overly More >>

When your parents popped in a Neil Diamond tape on repeat during long interstate road trips, you reluctantly sang along. Never thought you'd turn out to be a Diamond fan now, right? But singing along to "Sweet Caroline" and "Brother Love's Traveling Salvation Show" is so addictive now, you'd do anything to see Neil on stage.

IAMX
Sundays.  Sun, Oct 5, 2014-Sun, Oct 26, 2014
Glendale
Chris Corner has been doing this music thing for a really, really long time. Looking at more recent photos of him performing under his IAMX moniker, he might also be the living reincarnation of Jack Skellington. And the only dude who can rock one of Rihanna’s stage outfits as awesomely as she can. Though, I suppose, having been around this long, making so many different styles of music over the years, it would only be a natural progression for one’s stage persona to eventually evolve into your favorite musically inclined undead dandy and mine. I mean, it takes a lot of work and a lot of skill for a man to be able to walk on stage in a top hat and tuxedo jacket lined with glitter and feathers and really own it – when not in West Hollywood. Sartorial envelope pushing aside, Corner’s work with IAMX is a beautifully constructed mix of big-sounding orchestral arrangements with sleek and modern pounding electronic synth-rock. Corner’s signature vocals are sexy and evocative while still being frenzied and unpredictable, bringing a chaotic urgency to his sweeping aural landscape. So if you want as much attention to visual performance as musical craftsmanship, Corner is undoubtedly your man. - Brian Overly More >>

The Horrors
Wed, Oct 15, 2014
Los Angeles
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 >>

Los Angeles
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 >>

The Wonder Years
Sun, Oct 19, 2014
Pomona
Does anyone remember when pop punk was actually really good? … No? I know, it was a long time ago. Yes, that time did actually exist, thank you very much. It was a time before pop punk was about how asymmetrical your hair was cut, how skinny your jeans were by contrast to how giant your Nike Dunks were or how many auto-tuned synth beats you could fit in a three-minute song. It was a time when the bands were actually old enough to buy the cigarettes they smoked, and they wouldn’t be caught dead hanging out with teen Disney stars. The Wonder Years, just as the name implies, harkens back to a time in the genre when BS bands were few and far between, and the ones that were BS-ing could be easily sifted through. Your opinion of what it means to be a pop punk band has probably been tainted over the last many years by the bands who fall into the aforementioned douchebaggery, but the Wonder Years will clear your palate without problem. Real, honest, emotive punk, rife with yell-along gang vocal hooks and sing-along choruses, it’s the kind of high-energy rock that always seems to perfectly sum up the mental montage you have of your high school summers. Because, really, everyone has their own montage they’ve put together. - Brien Overly More >>

Metronomy
Tue, Oct 21, 2014
Los Angeles
Though I’m slightly hesitant to admit this, I really didn’t care for Metronomy when first introduced to them. I was 100-percent sure they were one of those bands that intentionally make themselves unlistenable and aurally displeasing, just for the sake of being hipster darlings for their irony. Or whatever. Then their not single-tracks started to invade my brainspace. Insufferable as they had been previously, I was hooked. Like a sickly gazelle in the jaws of the lion, they had snared me. Maybe I was led astray by a few choice tracks, but it turns out that a large portion of the band’s body of work is actually really well done, completely danceable indie. It’s slightly pretentious, but in a slightly snarky way that isn’t completely inaccessible. Is … is that what it’s like when irony is used for good instead of evil? - Brien Overly More >>

Broken Bells
Fri, Oct 24, 2014-Sat, Oct 25, 2014
Los Angeles
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 >>

The Kills
Fri, Oct 31, 2014
Inglewood
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 >>

Jimmy Eat World
Sun, Nov 2, 2014
Los Angeles
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 >>

Thu, Nov 6, 2014
Los Angeles
Hypothetical question for all you readers out there: Is there a single Strokes song that you can honestly say you actively hate? Posture all you want and say you hate the band’s scene, what they stand for or how they do their hair, you can not hate their songs. Frontman Julian Casablancas’ boozy charisma is near impossible to resist, even by the most jaded of critics. - Brien Overly More >>

Finch
Fri, Nov 7, 2014
West Hollywood
Whether or not I love Finch’s music is something I’ve debated internally on and off over the last few years. I have a special fondness for What It Is to Burn and … an admitted not-so-fondness for what came after that album. To their credit though, the Finch boys have always gone on stage and rocked the heck out for themselves before anyone else. So even if the songs weren’t the best in their oeuvre, and the musicianship wasn’t as … in tune as it could have been, they still attacked every stage they played on with reckless abandon. They’re admirable in that aspect, if not always aurally palatable. - Brien Overly More >>

Wayne Newton
Sat, Nov 8, 2014
Beverly Hills
On December 12, 1992, Newton hit #1 on the Cashbox Pop and Country charts with the Elvis inspired song, "The Letter." Controversy swirled around this chart feat, as "The Letter" did not chart at all on Billboard Magazine's authoritative Hot 100 chart, Adult Contemporary chart or "Bubbling Under" chart. It did not make the Radio and Records magazine chart either. This marked the first and only time in history that a record hit #1 on the Cashbox Top 100 chart, yet failed even to chart on Billboard's Hot 100. More >>

Foster the People
Fri, Nov 14, 2014
Los Angeles
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 >>

Minus The Bear
Sat, Nov 22, 2014
Pomona
And this is where we get to the more fun part of the show. Though they haven’t always been as such, Seattle-bred electronic-infused indie act have gotten significantly more sing-along inducing recently. Though, like Manchester, they don’t shy away from going to some of those darker places sonically, it’s pretty hard to not feel stoked on life by the end of one of their sets. Underneath their recently discovered glossy indie-pop finish of each song, however, is an intricate arrangement of expert musicianship. The dudes know the technical ins and outs of how to play their instruments for maximum aural engagement, making it possible for them to have a ton of levels and effects happening without sounding like an adolescent garage band all hitting their instruments at once. - Brien Overly More >>

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.

Los Angeles
Just listen to Circa Survive frontman Anthony Green sing live, it’ll change your life – or make you want to give up entirely on your pursuit of ever being that good of a vocalist. Either/or. Regardless, Circa has consistently managed to step up their game with each album they’ve released, having moved far beyond their roots in the Warped Tour post-hardcore scene to actually being a grown up sounding, indie-infused art-rock band. If only Circa would play Warped again, just once even … maybe some of the bands that have overrun that scene might take that aforementioned hint and actually quit. - Brien Overly More >>

Thousand Oaks
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 >>
