Recommended Show of the Week: Black Smiths @ Silverlake Lounge. Smiths cover band? Pass. Black Sabbath tribute? Yawn. The songs of the Smiths set to the music of Sabbath? YESSS!!! Check out frontman Ozzisey Morrisbourne and guitarist Johnny Iomarr this Wednesday at Silverlake Lounge.
Thurston Moore, Elderstatesman of NYC Artpunkrock, is popping up all over L.A. this weekend. On Sunday, Sonic Youth headlines the overpriced, topheavy Arthurfest bill in Little Armenia.
This was my first time back to the junction in a few years. Ever since Sonic Youth played in 2002 I’ve either been out of town or hiding in fear, recalling back-to-back years of parking woes.
