This month, NewFilmmakers Los Angeles (NFMLA) features InFocus: Military Veterans and the Effects of War, showcasing films by veterans and films that explore the experience of veterans and war, alongside a celebration of Halloween with a selection of horror shorts.
The evening begins with a short film selection that depicts a diverse range of experiences of military veterans from a variety of backgrounds and time periods. Beginning with a futuristic sci-fi narrative by award-winning director and former U.S. Army Captain Rebecca Murga, the program goes on to include explorations of PTSD, near death experiences, the cultural complexity faced by Japanese American WWII veterans, the true stories of a recently transitioned transgender Vietnam veteran, a woman who survived sexual assault in the military, and the struggle of immigrant veterans who face deportation following their service.
The evening’s focus on veterans continues with the LA Premiere of Jenica Bergere’s Spare Room, a visually striking film about a young widow whose life becomes unexpectedly intertwined with that of the veteran she rents a room to, with a profound effect on those around them.
The night concludes with shorts program Horror: Cabin Fever, a collection of short films that take place in claustrophobic conditions – both real and imagined. From birthday parties to the studios of obsessive artists to unearthly photocopy stores, and even in the woods – cabin fever captures a frenzied state of mind that transcends physical confines.

You’re invited to join NewFilmmakers Los Angeles (NFMLA) and The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) with presenting partners NALIP and SAG-AFTRA on Saturday, September 8th, 2018 for the annual NFMLA Film Festival InFocus: Latinx & Hispanic Cinema event. The event will be hosted at The Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills.
This month’s festival presents a powerful lineup of local and international films by world-class emerging filmmakers from Mexico, Brazil, Peru, Spain, Colombia, Chile, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Argentina and the United States across three short film programs. The evening opens with a collection of stories that explore everything from time travel to forbidden love, being caught between two words, abusive work environments and the importance of community.
The evening continues with an eclectic mix of genres covering everything from whimsical experimentalism to dance, including a dark comedy about a man facing down bureaucracy, a uniquely complex drama about the loss of a child, and stories of children facing down incredible odds, whether during wartime or in an imagined post-apocalyptic future.
The night culminates with a dynamic and hard-hitting collection of films that include two world premieres, a comedy starring a Brazilian soap opera actor that both is and isn’t about its own production, new work by a returning NFMLA alum, a thoughtful drama about the quest for same-sex parenthood in Spain, and a meditation on what it means to come home, all concluding with a story of parental love that transcends even the darkest moments.
NFMLA and AMPAS have formed industry-wide alliances and partnerships to support this initiative.
The program is full of talented filmmakers, including multiple-award-winning directors, writers and producers whose films have been programmed and awarded across Europe, South America and in the United States, including at SXSW and Sundance.
The evening presents three world premieres; The Morphable Man, by Jonathan Ostos Yaber, an award-winning director who has been recognized by the Italian Animation Academy, Synopsis by Felipe Saleme and Lara Koer, which stars and is produced by Brazilian soap opera actor Gabriel Godoy, and Sra. Genovese, the newest film by NFMLA alumn Daniela Arguello, whose last film in the 2017 NFMLA program, 2500Km, was acquired by HBO and who gave a Ted Talk about her filmmaking last fall. Additionally, the event will be the Los Angeles premiere of Bailaora by Spanish Director Rubin Stein, who was names is one of the 10 Spanish Filmmakers on the Rise 2018 by Variety.
Doors will open to the public at 4 pm with a pre-reception for the first shorts program, and the night will include a pre-reception before each of the evening’s programs, where attendees can sip cocktails and mingle with industry professionals and festival selected filmmakers in the lounge. The event will conclude at 11:30 pm.
Tickets are available for $5 per program advanced purchase / $7 per program at the door and $15 for all-night access passes, which provide access to all three film programs with open bar throughout the entire event. NFMLA’s Monthly Film Festivals are presented throughout the year with support from Executive Circle Sponsors FilmLA, The Coca-Cola Company and HBO, Producers Circle Sponsors SAG-AFTRA, 21st Century Fox Global Inclusion, Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA | Golden Globes), LA County Arts Commission and LA City Department of Cultural Affairs (DCA).

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MAY 22, 2018
OUR HOUSE Grief Support Center Offers
Free Weekend Grief Camp Experience
for Children Ages 6-17, June 8-10 and August 17-19
Los Angeles (May 22, 2018) – OUR HOUSE Grief Support Center is hosting Camp Erin® LA June 8-10 and August 17-19 at the scenic Camp Bloomfield in Malibu. Camp Erin LA is a weekend-long camp experience for children and teens ages 6 to 17 who have experienced the death of a parent, sibling, or guardian in the past 3 years. Camp is free of charge for all children and combines traditional camp activities with grief support, education, and remembrance projects. Typical fun and engaging camp favorites such as rock climbing, swimming, arts and crafts, and campfires are interspersed with projects and experiences used to facilitate expression of feelings, memorialize their loved one who died, and promote healing. Trauma Informed Yoga will be offered Sunday morning.
When campers arrive on Friday, they are greeted with open arms by the dozens of grief specialists and trained volunteers who guide the campers through a series of bonding and grief-related exercises, as well as fun high-energy physical activities. They begin their camp journey with an intimate Friday evening ceremony where each camper shares their name, the name of their loved one who died, and places a photo of that person on a “memory board.” Saturday evening’s Luminary Ceremony is equally powerful and another opportunity to come together to say goodbye to their loved one by writing a message or drawing on a lantern that’s lit and set adrift across the pool. OUR HOUSE Grief Support Center recognizes every person’s grief is unique in duration and intensity, and that commonalities of experience strengthen the value of a grief support group in helping the healing process. “By offering Camp Erin LA, OUR HOUSE puts a support system into place, offering a safe space to talk and providing the tools to cope with their grief,” said Michele Prince, Executive Director of OUR HOUSE Grief Support Center. “Camp might be the only opportunity they have to work on their grief with other kids.”
Camp Erin is an initiative created and funded by The Moyer Foundation in Seattle, WA, a non-profit organization established by Major League All-Star pitcher Jamie Moyer and his wife, Karen. Camp Erin is named in memory of Erin Metcalf, a friend of the Moyers who lost her battle to cancer at age 17. Camp Erin LA was featured in an Emmy award-winning HBO documentary “One Last Hug: Three Days at Grief Camp,” which was produced in association with The Moyer Foundation and OUR HOUSE Grief Support Center.

Venice Family Clinic presents its iconic 39th Art Walk & Auctions on May 20th from 12-6 p.m. at Google’s Venice Headquarters (340 Main Street, Venice, CA)
Calling all art lovers! Venice Family Clinic presents its iconic 39th Art Walk & Auctions to support Venice Family Clinic’s mission to provide quality health care to people in need. This year’s event honors three world-renowned Venice-based artists: signature artist Alexis Smith along with honorees Sam Durant and Ed Moses, posthumously. Taking place on Sunday, May 20, from noon to 6 p.m. at Google’s Venice Headquarters (340 Main Street, Venice, CA), Venice Art Walk is the largest public event held by the tech giant. Guests can enjoy free access to the city’s internationally-renowned art scene and all winning bids in the silent auction raise vital funds to support Venice Family Clinic patients’ health care needs.

Internet Fashion Records here, supporting new avant-pop band Jubilo Drive.
Here is a link to their newest single, “Off Satellites,” which fuses early krautrock influence with modern psychedelic rock. Frontman Jordan Kleinman penned the song’s lyrics while navigating through a handful of misguided romantic relationships. It’s a tribute to individuals he felt genuine connections with but was unable to pursue due to pre-existing relationships, professional boundaries, and friendships.
The group formed at Chapman University down in Orange County a few years ago, but — after a long hiatus — started a new chapter here in Los Angeles with a retooled lineup and fresh sound for 2018.
Jubilo Drive opened for Fishbone earlier this week, and will share the stage with Summer Twins at Civic Center Studios in downtown LA on Friday (May 11). With a handful of singles ready to release and more shows in the works, it figures to be a busy summer for Jubilo Drive.

AN EVENING WITH JULES SHEAR AT THE GRAMMY MUSEUM ®
PRESENTED BY AMERICAN EXPRESS
WEDNESDAY, MAY 23, 2018 AT 8 P.M.
TICKETS ON SALE NOW
JULES SHEAR ONE MORE CROOKED DANCE OUT NOW ON FUNZALO RECORDS
The GRAMMY Museum ® will welcome singer/songwriter Jules Shear to the Clive Davis Theater for an intimate performance and conversation, hosted by music journalist Roy Trakin on May 23.
Tickets available here: https://29105.blackbaudhosting.com/29105/tickets?tab=2&txobjid=67d06eab-6938-4dc1-8b47-1e00d3c6702e
With four decades in the music business under his belt, Shear started his career with the Funky Kings, moved on to Jules and the Polar Bears and then an impressive solo career, he’s penned hits like Cyndi Lauper’s “All Through the Night,” The Bangles “If She Knew What She Wants” and his own “Steady,” a co-write with Lauper. Not to mention catalog mainstays such as Tommy Conwell and the Young Rumblers’ “If We Never Meet Again,” Til Tuesday’s “(I Believed You Were] Lucky” and Alison Moyer’s Top 20 U.K. hit, “Whispering Your Name.” He was also the host and co-creator of the influential MTV Unplugged series.
In November 2017, Shear released his 13th studio album, One More Crooked Dance on Funzalo Record. With just piano, vocals and the occasional harmonica interspersed, the 13 personal songs on One More Crooked Dance are beautifully emotional. The spare instrumentation, the effortless harmonies and Shear’s world-weary vocals give the record a gravitas deserving of his 40-plus years in the music business. In his long and varied career, Shear has never put out an album without guitar, bass and drums, so this is certainly a first, but when he’s asked about his method, he shrugs, “It was something we tried, and it seemed to be working out well,” he said about the stark, minimalist approach. “So, we just kept going.” The plainspoken approach takes on the challenge of maintaining passion in the songs and it pays off, Shear examines relationships in “Rules of the Game,” hits hard about the things we do to self-medicate ourselves in “Painkiller,” examines the war of the sexes in “The Hunter and the Hunted,” brings a one-two punch of the exquisite harmonies in “When It’s Right” and interweaves harp and piano throughout “Wrong Again,” to name only a few.

Soul / Funk / Rock / R&B
Join us this summer for our productions of The Merry Wives of Windsor and The Winter’s Tale!
THE MERRY WIVES OF WINDSOR is a rollicking romantic comedy which tells of Falstaff’s folly: courting two married women at the same time. It’s mischief and mayhem galore.
A legend in his own mind, ne’er-do-well Sir John Falstaff, believes he has found the cure for all his financial problems. He’ll seduce two of the wealthiest ladies in town and relieve them of their virtue along with their change purses. But the two smart and sassy Real Housewives of Windsor are on to Sir John and they tease and humiliate him at every turn. Add in a jealous husband, a pair of hapless suitors, two hot-headed rivals, and a young couple in love and this merry farce careens to a happy ending with all involved, including the tormented Sir John, agreeing to “laugh this sport o’er by a country fire.”
THE WINTER’S TALE is the story of Leontes, a King who banishes his family wrongfully, and is taught the meaning of forgiveness through the inspired plan of a wise, loyal woman.
In an instant, King Leontes loses all that he holds dear. His wife, his son, and his best friend are ripped from him by his wild and baseless jealousy. His new born daughter is banished, taken to be abandoned far from court; not expected to survive. His wife seemingly dies of a broken heart, his son dies from sadness over his mother’s fate, and his best friend barely escapes with his life after nearly being poisoned. Too late, Leontes realizes how wrong he was. But is it too late for a miracle or two? Maybe love, once thought lost, can be ultimately found.
For audiences seeking quality, family entertainment, Shakespeare by the Sea’s free performances can’t be beat. Pack a picnic, a blanket and beach chair, gather loved ones, and settle in under the stars for a night of classic entertainment. The tales are timeless, the admission ticketless, and the experience priceless.
Performances: June 14-August 18, 2018
ADMISSION IS FREE
(donations gratefully accepted)

“BRASILIENSE” TO TOUR SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA IN MARCH, BRINGING MUSIC RICH IN THE MUSICAL TRADITIONS OF BRAZIL, AMERICAN JAZZ, AND BEYOND
Featuring: Natalie Cressman of the Trey Anastasio Band (trombone & vocals) Rebecca Kleinmann (flute & vocals)
Ian Faquini (guitar & vocals)
Julien Cantelm (drums, guitar & vocals)
17 MARCH 2018/ Brasiliense

Brasiliense is a musical collective of multi-instrumentalists with a shared passion for the rich musical traditions of Brazil. The music is a culmination of various forms of Brazilian music fused with jazz and other American styles, largely expressed through the distinct compositional voice of the group’s guitarist, Brazilian born Ian Faquini. As described by writer Andy Gilbert in SF Classical Voice, “Faquini writes astonishingly sophisticated Brazilian pop music in the omnivorous tradition known as MPB (música popular brasileira), which often draws heavily on jazz. Born in Brazil and raised in Berkeley, Faquini is a protégé of Guinga, the revered Brazilian guitarist and songwriter whose tunes have been recorded by dozens of MPB stars…While his harmonic palette is unmistakably inspired by Guinga’s writing, Faquini often draws on styles from Brazil’s northeast.”
Though he’s the only Brazilian musician in his band, Faquini has connected with American artists steeped in an array of Brazilian styles. Besides Faquini, the quartet features a particularly impressive array of talent: NYC-based, San Francisco-raised trombonist/vocalist Natalie Cressman of the Trey Anastasio Band, Oakland-based flutist/vocalist Rebecca Kleinmann, and San Diego-based drummer/guitarist Julien Cantelm. “With the two and three-part vocal harmonies hugging the Brazilian-accented Portuguese and warm voicings for alto flute and trombone, Brasiliense feels like a much bigger ensemble.” (Gilbert, SF Classical Voice)
Join NewFilmmakers Los Angeles (NFMLA) in celebrating independent cinema and in spotlighting female filmmakers and stories on March 24th, offering a diverse set of voices and storytelling styles.
The night’s first program will be InFocus: Female Cinema, a collection of short films from female directors and writers that include stories of mortality, motherhood, break-ups, career struggles and whether we fulfil our own childhood expectations for ourselves.
Second in the night will be the west coast premier of feature film Wonder Valley, a psychedelic psychological thriller with a horror tinge centered on four young women on a trip to the desert directed by Heidi Hartwig and written by Rhianon Jones.
The finale of the evening will be a narrative shorts program that spotlights the work of members of the women directors association Film Fatales across a variety of genres, including drama, dark comedy, experimental and surrealist.

Celebrating The Grieving Community And The Power Of Uniting Hands With Paws
OUR HOUSE Grief Support Center, one of the most respected non-profit grief centers in the nation, will host its ninth annual Run for Hope 5K Festival on Sunday, April 29 at the West Los Angeles Civic Center & Bandshell. The Run for Hope is the only event of its kind in the nation- a day dedicated to celebrating and honoring the memory of loved ones who have died. Every year, the Run focuses on community engagement, and bringing people together to support each other in memory of their loved ones. Deeply rooted in the community are the Presenting Sponsors – The Hollander Family and Karma Rescue– who will honor this commitment by showcasing the power of unity by uniting hands with paws.
“We are proud to help unite the community in the memory of their loved ones,” said Michele Prince, Executive Director, OUR HOUSE Grief Support Center, “The Run for Hope is our largest event of the year with an expected 1,700 attendees who have pledged to raise over $500,000 for essential grief support services and the collective benefit of our community.”
The event will be filled with activities for those participating in the walk or stopping by to show their support. With registration, participants can personalize t-shirts with their loved ones’ photos commemorating and celebrating their memories, and on Sunday, April 29 take part in three key events: The In-Memory Ceremony, 5K, and Festival. Additionally, there will be an In-Memory Wall inviting participants to write and place the name of their special person who died amongst others also being remembered.
The Presenting Sponsors – The Hollander Family, and Karma Rescue– are further exemplifying community commitment by bringing smiles to participants with a dog-kissing booth where all can receive a smooch by a pooch. Karma Rescue will also bring some of their rescue dogs, as many who are mourning the death of a loved one are often calmed and reassured by the loving companionship of a pet. Jackie Hollander says, “My vision for OUR HOUSE Grief Support Center and Karma Rescue is to have these two wonderful organizations collaborate by uniting people and animals at their most vulnerable times, helping them provide solace and support for each other.” To honor the memory of participant’s pets who have died, all will be able to memorialize them on the Zuma Memorial Wall.

This year, the Night For Hope will feature comics Vargus Mason, Esther Povitsky, aka “Little Esther,” and Adam Ray, all introduced by MC JC Cocoli for a night full of laughs and finding hope through grief.

The festival concludes with a shorts program of indie genre cinema in America. The films combine horrifying scenes and powerful characters under pressure. The line-up is comprised of 2 equally dark stories of motherhood, a young sociopath’s coming of age, a peek into the bleak future of foster care and a story of evil spirits. This is a program of films that simultaneously portrays ugliness and beauty in astounding way.

Carl Weathers Directs “Danny And The Deep Blue Sea” at Edgemar Center Starring Tanna Frederick and Robert Standley
“Danny and the Deep Blue Sea” will open July 1 in Santa Monica
Danny and the Deep Blue Sea starring Tanna Frederick and Robert Standley, and directed by Carl Weathers, will open July 1 at the Edgemar Center for the Arts in Santa Monica.
Carl Weathers was famous first as an NFL player with the Oakland Raiders, then as an actor for his iconic movie roles (Apollo Creed, Action Jackson), and his roles as a regular on several TV series (Chicago Justice, Brothers, In the Heat of the Night, Street Justice), and as a television director (Always Night, For the People, Sheena, Strong Medicine, Silk Stalkings). He is set to direct John Patrick Shanley’s unlikely romance Danny and the Deep Blue Sea in The Rainbow Theatre Company production at Edgemar Center.
The setting is a rundown bar in the Bronx, where two of society’s rejects, Danny and Roberta, strike up a halting conversation over their beer. He is a brooding, self-loathing young man who resorts more to violence than reason; she is a divorced, guilt-ridden young woman whose troubled teenage son is now being cared for by her parents. Danny, whose fellow truck drivers call him “the animal”, seems incapable of tender emotion, while Roberta, who is still haunted by the memory of an ugly sexual incident involving her father, is distrustful of men in general. And yet, as their initial reserve begins to melt, and they decide to spend the night together, the possibility of a genuine and meaningful relationship begins to emerge—the first for both of them.
Tanna Frederick and Robert Standley are becoming the Hepburn and Tracy of local stages, having also appeared together previously in The Rainmaker (L.A. Times Critic’s Choice) and Jack & Jill. They also appear in the 2016 feature film Ovation. Ms. Frederick’s stage credits also include Always…But Not Forever, Sylvia, A Safe Place, Dutchman, and more. Known as a queen of indie films, her screen credits include Train to Zakopané, Just 45 Minutes From Broadway, Queen of the Lot, Irene in Time, The M Word, Hollywood Dreams and more.
Robert Standley won an Ovation Award for his performance in Barbarians and Outer Critics Circle Awards for his roles in A Streetcar Named Desire and Picnic. Other stage turns include Post Office (at the Kirk Douglas) and national tours of Cotton Patch Gospel, According to Coyote, and The Rainmaker. He’s familiar to televison audiences from stints on Invasion, Melrose Place, Breaking Through and All My Children.
A review for a production of Danny and the Deep Blue Sea said, “The play is the equivalent of sitting at ringside watching a prize fight that concludes in a loving embrace.’’- The New York Times.
Danny and the Deep Blue Sea was written by John Patrick Shanley. The author of forty-one plays, he won the Tony ® Award for Doubt, received a Tony nomination for Outside Mullingar, and won the Oscar® for his screenplay for Moonstruck. His other plays include the dreamer examines his pillow, Psycopathia Sexualis, Beggars in a House of Plenty, Italian American Reconciliation, Where’s My Money?, Four Dogs and a Bone, and many more. The play is being produced by The Rainbow Theatre Company.
The Edgemar Center for the Arts is located at 2437 Main St., Santa Monica, CA 90405. Parking is available in an adjacent lot (fee charged). There is also metered street parking and a nearby metered municipal lot.
The play runs through September 10, 2017. Performances are Saturday at 8:00 pm and Sunday at 4:00 pm (dark August 12-13).
Admission is $25; students and seniors are $20.
Reservations can be made by calling (310) 392-7327 or online ticketing is available at http://bit.ly/2qCaHej.

NewFilmmakers Los Angeles is proud to present another month of incredible independent film talent. Join us on Saturday, June 24th, as we start the night with an eccentric film program. We are screening five short films that cover a wide range of narratives from a lonely girl trying to find her voice in the world to a 100-year-old woman rebelling against her aging daughter’s demands.
Our next program of the night presents the 1st of 2 InFocus: LGBTQ Cinema Film Programs. This shorts program focuses on stories of love, connection and reconciliation by both local filmmakers and international talents from China and Brazil.
Closing the evening is the second LGBTQ shorts program that revolves around conflicts of identity, community and family. This program’s stories include a serial killer on the hunt for love, millennials who decide to get their lives together after one last night of debauchery and four misfits who make the world their stage.
These 2 shorts programs illuminate a wide range of the LGBTQ experience, contrasting with the common one-dimensional portrayals of LGBTQ characters. These emerging directors give more representation to the LGBTQ community by humanizing their characters and relating them to their audiences.
Throughout the event, attendees will have opportunities to mingle with the filmmakers, industry supporters and film lovers with an open bar at the filmmakers’ lounge adjacent to the private entry of the South Park Center’s 500 seat theater in Downtown Los Angeles.

The Rap Contest, originally called 2Racks Rap Contest, is a fast-paced song competition for upcoming hip-hop artists to showcase original material, perform live and compete for a cash prize. The series is innovative, trendsetting, and authentic and is consistently packing clubs for new music. The Rap Contest number one objective is to provide a home for independent hip-hop.

THE TIMES THEY ARE A-CHANGIN’
A Night of Angelino Original Protest Songs
Hotel Café, Sunday, April 2, 8-10pm, $15
With the dawning of a new political reality, suddenly the air is rife with the spirit of protest. And along with the spirit inevitably comes… the songs. An inspired outpouring of political music and art is ripping through the US in a way not experienced since the heyday of Pete Seeger, Odetta, Phil Ochs and a young Bob Dylan. And Los Angeles is one of the many ground zeroes.
To celebrate our city’s contribution to this creative explosion, Country Music maverick Grant Langston will host a night of new, original protest songs from over twenty Los Angeles songwriters at Hotel Café on Sunday, April 2, with all profits to benefit The National Immigration Law Center (www.nilc.org/).
Artists as diverse as Ghanaian reggae star and Grammy-nominee Rocky Dawuni, indie siren Maria Taylor, and Americana legend Tony Gilkyson will perform new original protest songs, custom made for this historic moment.
“Historically music has had a powerful role to play during times of political and social duress,” says Grant. “It’s unique in its ability to inspire, sooth, satirize and propel action. So it seems natural to me that in our current state of affairs the music community has an opportunity and a responsibility to make itself heard. I’m hoping this show can be the catalyst to create more social art while raising money for a worthwhile cause.”
Established in 1979, the National Immigration Law Center (NILC) is one of the leading organizations in the U.S. exclusively dedicated to defending and advancing the rights of low-income immigrants.
“The times they are a-changing’” sang Bob Dylan in 1964. And so they are again. Come celebrate the musical signs-of-the-times – the wit, insight, anger, and spirit – on Sunday, April 2, from 8-10pm at Hotel Café, (1623 N Cahuenga Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90028) Admission $15.

NewFilmmakers Los Angeles (NFMLA) Film Festival – February 18th, 2017
In honor of Black History Month, NFMLA presents ‘InFocus: Black Cinema’ to open up this month’s festival screening. The program consists of films that cover a range of stories and cultures seeking to underscore the importance of films that have starred, filmed, directed, or been produced by the black community. We have two comedies of how far one goes to break the walls between color in the name of love, a witty comment on stereotyping, a beautifully captured character study of a youth from the streets, training his way to the olympics, and a historical snapshot of an economically challenged community in Detroit transformed though the modernist architecture of Mies Van Der Rohe.
Next we have 2 programs of short films, many premiering for the first time in Los Angeles including character driven films from Italy and Lithuania, a Hungarian produced thriller and a glimpse of mother struggling with her cancer in modern day Iran. And from the U.S., a modern day pulp flick set in the desert, a satire of a clever homeless man, and a documentary of a female acapella quartet out of Cuba.
Closing the evening, we have the West Coast Premier of ‘Homestate’, a tender experiment of real life and fiction following Blaise Miller in a refined performance as the lead character on a path of redefining himself despite the lack of faith from his family.
In between programs, meet and mingle with the filmmakers and industry supporters over cocktails and sounds at the filmmakers’ lounge inside the private entry to the 500 seat theater of the South Park Center in Downtown Los Angeles.

Five years ago, actor Tanna Frederick scored a personal triumph in productions of Sylvia at Sierra Madre Playhouse and Edgemar Center for the Arts. Now she returns to the title role, not only starring in but also directing the new production.
In this 1995 comedy by A.R. Gurney (Love Letters, The Dining Room), Greg and Kate are empty-nesters in the big city. On a walk in the park, Greg is adopted by Sylvia, a bouncy, frisky poodle mix. But Kate comes to feel that she is losing Greg to his adoring new best friend who just loves to be petted, scratched, and talked to. This imaginative twist on Greg’s midlife crisis leads to lots of laughs and some thoughtful insights into the nature of love, marriage, jealousy, and dogs.
In addition to Ms. Frederick, the cast also includes Steve Howard (also from the 2011 productions) as Greg, Beege Barkette (Babylon 5, The Fabulous Baker Boys) as Kate, and Matthew Marcy (TMI Hollywood) as three other characters.
Tanna Frederick is perhaps best known as a queen of independent film. Fresh off her career-best (so far) film reviews for Ovation, she has also appeared in The M Word, Irene in Time, Just 45 Minutes From Broadway, Queen of the Lot Hollywood Dreams, The Bandit Hound and more. Her stage credits include The Rainmaker (L.A. Times Critics Choice), Jack & Jill, Always…But Not Forever, Toussaint: For the Love of Freedom, Train to Zakopané, Dutchman ,A Safe Place, and more. She is also active in philanthropic endeavors, co-founding Project Save Our Surf and founding the Iowa Independent Film Festival, now in its tenth year.

Los Angeles International Flamenco Festival Presents
World Renowned Flamenco Guitarist and Five-Time GRAMMY Winner
Performing with his Sextet for the first time in the
City of Los Angeles
Friday, October 21, 2016, 8 p.m., Wilshire Ebell Theatre
José Fernández Torres, better known as Tomatito, is a living legend and one of today’s most-admired flamenco guitarists. Known for his mastery of traditional rhythms, his classic work with singer Camarón del la Isla, and his pioneering efforts in establishing Nuevo flamenco by augmenting traditional flamenco with music influenced by classical, jazz, blues, rock, pop, bossa-nova, tango, and fado, makes his first City of Los Angeles appearance with his sextet on Friday, October 21 at 8:00 p.m. at the Wilshire Ebell Theatre.
Tomatito has presented his art the world over, from New York to Moscow, from the Middle East to Hong Kong. He has been hailed as one of the best guitarists in the world. An enormously charismatic musician, Tomatito is much loved both as an embodiment of Flamenco’s deep traditions and as a leader in contemporary developments in the art form. Tomatito has ensured the evolution of flamenco guitar, as well as securing his own place as the leading flamenco guitarist of his generation and one of the greatest flamenco guitarists of all time.
“Tomatito is the most eminent guitarist in flamenco. [He plays] with such clean intent that it was possible fo you to feel the energy and gesture and contrast in those individual notes and phrases as if you were playing them yourself.” (Ben Ratliff, New York Times)
Tomatito’s sextet includes José del Tomate, guitar; Piraña, percussion; Kiki Cortiñas and Morenito de Íllora, vocals; and José Maya, one of the most exciting flamenco dancers today. Maya is one of the most explosive dancers in Spain today, a powerful figure in flamenco’s new generation. He has collaborated with many of the most well-known flamenco artists including Farruquito, El Güito, Manolete, Estrella Morente, Gerardo Núñez and Diego El Cigala, and has opened for pop stars Marc Anthony, Beyoncé and Björk.
Flamenco has a long and complex history with ancient roots. It has been traced to the 15th-century arrival in Spain of Gypsies whose musical traditions blended with those of Christians, Arabs, and Jews to create unique forms, modes, and rhythms. In the late 19th century the music became popular in cafes throughout Spain.
Tomatito was born in Almería, southern Spain, surrounded by guitars. Since childhood he listenied to his father and grandfather, Miguel Tomate. He is the nephew of legendary Flamenco guitarist Miguel Niño. At age 12 he moved to the city of Malaga, where he started his career playing flamenco clubs like La Taberna Gitana. There he met Paco de Lucía and Camarón de la Isla. Gradually, his extraordinary powers drew attention from critics and fans. He began to play with great singers like Enrique Morente or La Susi, but his greatest pride is to have played with the legendary Camarón de la Isla for the last 18 years of his life.
Alongside Camarón, Tomatito recorded discs that are now essential references in the flamenco archive, such as “La Leyenda del Tiempo” and “Como el Agua.” In the latter, Tomatito accompanies with Paco de Lucía. After the death of Camarón, Tomatito began his career as a soloist, dazzling audiences with his exquisite sensitivity. His charismatic personality and a firm commitment to the development and dissemination of flamenco worldwide mean that Tomatito now enjoys the recognition he deserves, not only in the field of music but also in film, theater and art.
Tomatito has won a total of five Grammy Awards (one with Michel Camilo) and a Latin Grammy for his albums “Aguadulce” and “Soy Flamenco”. He has collaborated with many performers from around the world, such as Elton John and Frank Sinatra, and has influenced a whole generation of young guitarists. And on the occasions when he has ventured into other musical fields, such as jazz, has always remained true to his principles. His latest album, “Soy Flamenco”, presents an elegant and mature musician at the height of his art.
The Los Angeles International Flamenco Festival is proud to bring unique programming and world-class flamenco artists to Los Angeles, having presented some of the worlds most acclaimed and influential flamenco artists. Past performers include Vicente Amigo, Los Farrucos, Diego El Cigala, Juana la del Pipa, La Tania, Tia Yoya, Luis Moneo, Diego del Morao, La Curra, Kina Mendez, Maria Bermudez, Teatro Flamenco, Adam del Monte, Omayra Amaya, Gema Moneo & many more.

Los Angeles, CA: California folk-pop outfit Faultlines to drop sophomore EP Telephone Philosophies on August 19, 2016. The five song record is preceded by lead single “Wooden Bridges” released June 14. You can watch the youtube video at this link:
Album pre-release concert scheduled for 7pm at Ocean Prime, Beverly Hills, CA, on August 18 with a follow up at Santa Ana’s Gypsy Den on August 23 at 7:30pm.
The 5 song EP was recorded and mixed between Jim Henson Studios Hollywood and in North Hollywood by Brazilian sound architect, Lineu Andrade. While Telephone Philosophies picks and strums in the sonic playground of country and folk, it lives comfortably in the 2016 world of Adele and Johnnyswim. Telephone Philosophies will be available August 19, 2016 on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, and all digital stores.
Packing venues in the Southern California scene, this folk-pop trio is comprised of members Todd McCool, Ashley Morgan, and John Flanagan – each with a resume backing up major label artists as singers, players, and songwriters respectively. The combined synergistic effect has been described as an amazing and impressive breath of fresh air. Their lauded three-part harmonies are a metaphor for their work. With unique strengths these individuals are able to put their best cards on the table for a royal flush of a musical performance. In 2016, Faultlines opened up for a range of artists including Christina Perri and Easton Corbin, owing to their urban pop and roots country sound. Faultlines’ goal is simple: to play everywhere, all of the time, and of course, shake up the current state of commercial music.

Who doesn’t like a nice pair of shoes?
The feel, the smell, and the look of how you first put them on. They can be the perfect tool for the perfect moment. High heels for a beautiful model. Construction boots for the construction workers daily grind. Basketball shoes to display the athletes arsenal of talent.
From high heels to Jordans to army boots, Sneaker Suites dives deep into the diverse and personal relationship street dancers have with the most highly-purchased fashion items in the world: sneakers. Fusing provocative poetry, hip hop choreography, childhood memories, and instrumental beats, Sneaker Suites unravels the iconic importance of sneakers through this multi-layered performance.
Sneakers represent empowerment and exploitation, and Sneaker Suites grapples with the contradictions of this symbolism with funk and style.
From Seattle to Wyoming, New York to Philadelphia, Antics has successfully sold out shows and captivated the audience. Sneaker Suites will be making its Los Angeles premiere July 8th and 9th at the Ivy Substation.
This performance is made possible in part by a Culver City Performing Arts Grant with support from Sony Pictures Entertainment.

Hooka Hey from Austin Texas at The Hi Hat (with Uncles) Fri June 3

“A layered, dangerous ride hinting at Eastern mysticism and crazy, seductive Creole voodoo.(…) Their work is urgent and unrelenting, possessing a musical confidence even early in the game. (…) And like any burning passion, they will leave you wanting more”
Hooka Hey plays blues-based tribal beats with smoky, sludgy riffs drenched and charged like the air just before a rainstorm. Organic and raw, their “Transylvanian Voodoo” sound encompasses a wide variety of grooves and tones evoking artists like Queens of The Stone Age or Jack White.
For Immediate Release:
Wasteland World Inc., the creators of Wasteland Weekend are holding their first ever car show on May 21st, 2016 at Alpine Village in Torrance, CA, starting at 12 noon. 833 Torrance Blvd, Torrance CA 90502
Wasteland Weekend is the world’s largest Mad Max fan festival and post-apocalyptic party. As the event has grown, it has begun attracting “wasteland cars” from across the country to its remote location in the Mojave Desert. Now, the creators of this growing annual celebration have decided that it’s time to bring this end-of-the-world showcase to civilization.
“We had over a hundred of these amazing vehicles cruising out in the desert last year, and we thought it was time to let the general public, who might not make it to one of our events, see these incredible, one-of-a-kind creations up close” says the event’s director and co-owner Jared Butler. “Wasteland Weekend is for Wastelanders” elaborates Wasteland co-owner Adam Chilson, “but now we can invite everyone else to get a little taste of what we’re all about”.
While Wasteland Weekend is a four day, costumes-required, themed desert party that brings in hardcore fans from all over the world, the new Wasteland World Car Show is a one day, all-ages, free-to-the-public event in an urban setting. “The barrier to entry for this is MUCH lower, so that anyone can come appreciate these cars up close” says Chilson.
“We’d love to see ‘Wasteland cars’ gain acceptance in the wider car community as another style or genre in the custom car world, alongside hot rods, street rods, and rat rods”, says Butler. Just what IS a “wasteland car”? Butler explains: “It can be hard to define, but you know it when you see it. The movement kind of started with people building replicas of cars from the Mad Max movies, but they’ve evolved over the years into a kind of mix between a lifted off-road vehicle and a rat rod. Car folks love to argue over definitions, but the wasteland car is about ignoring a lot of the rules and having fun. So, since a wasteland car is mostly about aesthetics, if it LOOKS like a wasteland car, then it IS one. We have some that are made by professionals and made on a bigger budget, and some thrown together by amateurs. When we judge them for a contest, build quality IS a factor, but the biggest factors are creativity and style. There are a lot of exceptions within the category, but in general, a wasteland car will be lifted rather than lowered (because roads won’t be well-maintained after the apocalypse), they’ll predate computers so they’re easy to service in a burnt out world of the future, and they’ll have some kind of offensive capability – Because you gotta be a road warrior.” Chilson adds, “The emphasis on looks really borrows a lot from building movie cars. Except in this case, the movie might just be in the owner’s head.”
The car show lasts until 7pm and will feature costumed Wastelanders modeling with the cars and entertaining the crowd, professional photographers, and vendors selling themed merchandise. At 7pm, the action shifts inside to the Alpine Village’s newly-renovated Steinhouse bar & restaurant, which features a full entertainment stage and dance floor. Chilson says, “We couldn’t just bring out all of these cars and Wastelanders and not have one of our signature parties at the end of it”.
The party will feature live rock bands, DJs, vendors, and performers ($8 cover at the door, with discounted online pre-sale tickets available).
“I don’t think there’s ever been a car event quite like this” says Butler. Chilson agrees, “I think it’s time to put on a show that will inspire the next generation of crazy Mad Max car builders”.

SAVE-the-DATE: Sunday June 26 — THE BIGGEST PARTY IN THE 626!
626 Golden Streets presented by Metro will be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to walk, bike, run, skate, scoot, dance and play on over 18 miles of “open streets” linking 7 Foothill cities and 6 Gold Line stations.

The historic event will be one of the largest of its kind in the United States, and quite possibly the first in the nation in which 8 distinct jurisdictions work together to host a connected “ciclovia” on the same day. As with any open streets event, 626 Golden Streets will not feature a start or finish. Attendees can come and go; stop and explore; and traverse as much or as little of the route as they wish. Along the way there will be 7 distinct activity zones featuring activities such as live music, free fitness classes, pop-up art exhibits, family-friendly play zones and more.
The day will kick off at 7:30am with the Train Run (www.thetrainrun.com), the San Gabriel Valley’s first point-to-point half marathon from South Pasadena to Duarte. Upon finishing runners will receive a TAP card and be able to ride the Gold Line ride back to the start.

Sunstock Solar Festival Mixing Solar Power with Music and Art
Benefits Kids Cancer Connection
Los Angeles, CA (May 4th) – Sunstock Solar Festival is the first completely solar-powered event of its kind and is lighting the way for music and the environment this summer. The festival, which will take place on June 18 at the Autry in Griffith Park, is the first solar powered event of its kind. The event will feature some of the hottest local bands, but it’s also for a good cause. Sunstock Solar Festival will benefit Kids Cancer Connection, a local charity, and help create awareness for alternative energy sources and eco-friendly practices in the music industry.
“Music has a way of uplifting, re-energizing and inspiring people. If we can create a positive experience that is also pointed towards a cause and a purpose, we can be more effective and we can be re-energized,” said Sunstock Founder, Skylar Funk. “We come together not just to party and listen to music, but because we know that there has to be a change and we want to be part of the solution. “People can come get involved with these non-profits, or even if they just buy a ticket, they are supporting a good cause,” he added.
Sunstock Solar Festival will run all evening, entirely on solar energy, creating a brilliant atmosphere to enjoy great music and celebrate with the community. Funk and his band Trapdoor Social started doing solar-powered concerts in 2015 and are creating Sunstock Solar Festival in order to celebrate solar as a solution, create a positive space for the sustainability movement to come together, and curate great art and music for the Los Angeles community. The festival, which is produced in collaboration with Odd Nights at the Autry, is open to all ages and will include visual artists, activities for kids, food trucks, a 21+ bar and vendors from the area’s craft culture. All proceeds from the event will help fund a solar roof installed by Sunstock partner, GRID Alternatives, for Kids Cancer Connection.
With an over-arching goal of uniting the community around sustainable solutions, Sunstock Solar Festival has teamed up with local and national organizations working to reduce our country’s carbon footprint and protect the health of future generations. Partners include the longstanding environmental grassroots organization Sierra Club, as well as Food & Water Watch, SoCal 350, Courage Campaign, GRID Alternatives, Climate Hawks Vote, and Eastside Sol.
Sunstock’s musical lineup will include top indie and alternative acts from around the region. Early bird tickets are now available through Eventbrite for $15.00. The festival will be located in a secluded corner of Griffith Park at the Autry Museum of the American West, 4700 Western Heritage Way. A bike valet and plenty of free parking will be available in the Los Angeles Zoo parking lot.

Doors open at 4PM and music goes live at 5PM. Visit sunstocksolarfestival.com for updated information on the lineup and amenities. For more information on Sunstock Founder, Skylar Funk and band Trapdoor Social, visit trapdoorsocial.com.

Multi-award winning Lion Ark, the story of the dramatic rescue of 25 lions from Bolivia, plays at the LA Screen Actors Guild, 5.15pm, on Saturday April 9, to help Animal Defenders International (ADI) airlift 33 ex-circus lions from South America to a sanctuary in their native Africa, next month.
Described by critics as “uplifting” and “the feel-good movie of the year,” Lion Ark is more action adventure than traditional documentary. It follows an ambitious and daring animal rescue, close up and personal, in the thick of the action as events unfold. Attitudes to animals were changed, illegal circuses tracked down and 25 lions airlifted to freedom.
A huge hit at the film festivals Lion Ark racked up 11 awards and secured worldwide distribution deal with ITV GE, with DVD planned for the future.
A Q&A after the film from ADI founders Jan Creamer and Tim Phillips will talk about the latest rescue of wild animals from circuses in Peru and Colombia, with a preview of rescue footage from the new operation, Spirit of Freedom.
WHAT: Lion Ark helping to SAVE THE LIONS
WHEN: Saturday, April 9, 5.15pm
WHERE: The Screen Actor’s Guild, 5757 Wilshire Blvd., #PH1, Los Angeles
TICKETS: $15 Tickets here
The Spirit of Freedom mission has saved over 100 animals including lions, a tiger, bears, monkeys, birds and reptiles. Animals have been nursed back to health at ADI’s temporary custody center. Native wildlife including monkeys, bears and others are now in their forever homes – specially built Amazon sanctuary habitats. Some lucky animals have already gone back into the wild and others are scheduled for wild release after rehabilitation. Following Colombia’s new law, the first nine lions have been handed over and will join the 24 Peru lions to travel to their forever home.
The Save the Lions screening is to help raise the cost of the flight for 33 lions, who have endured hell on earth in Latin American circuses, to fly home to their native Africa.
The lions will have natural, secure habitats at Emoya Big Cat Sanctuary in South Africa, see http://lionsbacktoafrica.org/
The Spirit of Freedom flight is next month and each lion needs a sponsor for their $10,000 ticket to freedom.

You’ve seen the sport in the Olympics, you’ve heard about it from someone you know, and you’ve thought, “hey, I wonder if I can do that?” Come find out for yourself! With no experience necessary, come on out to see what the roaring game is all about. Learn how to deliver a stone, and how to sweep it down the ice. Find out what hoglines, hacks, buttons, and houses all have to do with it. Bring your families out and learn together.
Please wear loose, comfortable clothing that you can lunge in (stretch!), warm socks, and rubber soled, closed toe shoes. Sneakers work well. (We suggest no Converse, Toms, or other low-profile soles- your feet will get cold!). Dress in layers (it can be cold on the ice, but you’ll warm up once you start sweeping).
Our instructors will give you an overall understanding of what you need to play the game. You’ll learn the basics of throwing, sweeping, and some basic game flow & strategy. By the end of just one session, you can be ready to join our fall league and master the game!
Spaces must be reserved in advance. Kids 10 and up are welcome, but require a parent or guardian to sign the waiver. Please arrive 30 min early to complete waivers and registration.
I love this site and all the work they do for the music community in Los Angeles. You’ve give tons of new hard working artists an avenue to promote their art.
We work with producers and venues to provide great tasting tacos for your events. Check us out.

An Evening with Niki J Crawford (2 sets) Live at Mrs Fish (Free Show)
Mrs Fish http://www.mrsfish.com
Address: 448 S Hill St, Los Angeles, CA 90013
Sat March 26th, 2016 / Doors 7pm / Show 10:00pm
No Cover / 21+
Niki J Crawford and her band bring the heat with a high energy soul get down. After a short break following her recent tour, where she performed more than 200 shows worldwide, Niki is back with a new band, new songs and a new show. Niki will be preforming songs of her debut release “The Genesis Block” and new songs from her forthcoming second record.
“Niki J. Crawford’s first EP titled The Genesis Block is carried by soaring and multi-layered vocals, her most fully realized work to date that is finely attuned and anchored by the type of rhythmic instrumentation that allows her range and depth to be heard in its finest hour. The songs are rooted in unabashed free expression with profoundly selfless lyrical compositions usually reserved for the most mature of songwriters. Each track teeters on themes of romance and conceit while remaining heartfully optimistic throughout the final verse”.
Niki and the band have shared the stage and have played with Carlos Santana, Snoop Dogg, Al Green, Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings, Aaron Neville, Macy Grey, Booker T Jones, The Roots, Galactic and Orgone. Come out for a rare opportunity to see this rising talent in an intimate nightclub setting.
Three Rooms Press and Beyond Baroque Literary | Arts Center present
The Official West Coast Launch of
BAD: The Autobiography of James Carr
Friday, April 1, 8 pm
Beyond Baroque Literary | Arts Center
681 N. Venice Blvd., Venice, CA | 310-822-3006
On Friday April 1, Three Rooms Press and Beyond Baroque present the Official L.A. Launch of BAD: The Autobigraphy of James Carr, the harrowing, brutal, and unapologetic 1972 autobiography by James Carr, a notorious African-American career criminal who went straight out of Compton to a reformatory after burning down his school at the age of 10. A brutal indictment of the American penal system and a primer for the present-day seeds of institutionalized racism in this country, BAD goes where no other book has ever gone before and so did James Carr. After years in and out of prison (mostly in) Carr wound up bunking with George Jackson (Soledad Brother) in Folsom Prison, who taught him to read and write, and inspired him they fight for a position of strength along the radical stream of the 1960s including years with the Black Panthers, Angela Davis, the BLA and more. When finally released from prison, he married, had a daughter, and had just finished recording his memoir when he was murdered in front of his house in San Jose shortly before the book’s initial release. In BAD, Carr notes, “I’ve been struggling all my life to get beyond the choice of living on my knees or dying on my feet. It’s time we lived on our feet.” A book that strips the system bare, Carr’s memoir is revealing as a part of Black Panther history, and as a telling document in the ongoing battle for American prison reform.
The event will feature an introduction to the book by Gea Carr (daughter of James) along with readings by very special guest artists and supporters of prison reform. Copies of BAD will be avaialble for purchase at the event. General admission is $10; discounted admission for seniors and students is $6. The event is free of charge for Beyond Baroque members.
Beyond Baroque Literary Arts Center is at 681 Venice Blvd., Venice, CA 90291, phone: 310-822-3006. For additional information and reservations, email email@example.com.

Sunday, Feb. 21, at Mark Taper Auditorium in Central Library downtown, co-sponsored by the Los Angeles Public Library and the Los Angeles City Historical Society. It will be a powerful Power Point Presentation about the history of Los Angeles’ struggle for water, with rarely and never-before-seen photographs and film, covering the privatization of the L.A. River, when the city agreed to a 30-year lease by a company that paid the city only $400 a year, while charging customers whatever it chose. It will present the intriguing and often misrepresented story of Mulholland and the L.A. Aqueduct, the many additional sources of imported water, the first recycling plant in Griffith Park in 1930, the continuing struggles with drought, the successful past and current recycling programs that serve Los Angeles, toilet-to-tap fiascos, and planning for the future by Los Angeles water and sanitation agencies.

Comedians Andy Rocco and Lisa Herring got married because they were dorky people (among other reasons) but that wasn’t enough for them. So they created a variety show to share their love for all things nerdy. Together they explore what’s new and exciting in nerd culture with sketches, characters, and stand up comedians, who will pretty much just talk about what ever they want.
Guests this month will be…
John Gemberling (Broad City)

The 7th Annual Edwardian Ball returns to Hollywood’s legendary and storied Fonda Theatre on Saturday, February 27, 2016 for ONE NIGHT ONLY. The “epic and elegant yet seductively dark affair that enchants all of the senses,” according to LA.com, is a re-imagined turn-of-the-century world that presents an inimitable, description-defying, whimsical and surrealistic living interpretation and celebration of the late macabre cult author, comic artist, illustrator and cartoonist Edward Gorey. http://www.edwardianball.com
Gorey is considered a ground-breaking, genre–defying graphic novelist who is credited with influencing Charles “Addams Family” Addams, Lemony Snicket, Neil Gaiman (Coraline and Day of the Dead), Rob Reger (Emily the Strange), Alison Bechdel,(Are You My Mother?: A Comic Drama and Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic), and Tim Burton (Nightmare Before Christmas, Edward Scissorhands, and Beetlejuice).
The Edwardian Ball blends live music, theatre, fashion and cosplay, circus, fine art, riveting stage shows, black comedy, science fiction, literature, ballroom dancing, and DJs into a whirlwind and enticing extravaganza set in a romanticized, gilded and genteel Neo-Victorian and Edwardian-era gothic and steampunk-tinged distant past that imagines an elegant alternate reality future. Other delightful attractions include a free portrait booth, rooftop vending, mystical and nonsensical oddities, absinthe cocktails, parlour games, alluring sideshows, and much more. All ages are welcome.
This multi-city, multi-media exposition of the eccentric and esoteric the SF Bay Guardian calls a “Gothic, ghoulish and glorious celebration,” has grown over the past fifteen years from an underground club party into an internationally recognized festival of the arts, drawing attendees from all over the world, operating with the blessing of The Edward Gorey Charitable Trust.
The Edwardian Ball, which has been dazzling San Francisco audiences since it first began in 2000, is described by the San Francisco Weekly as, “Think Vintage Fetish meets circus theatrics meets industrial arts mayhem;” “A surreal atmosphere filled with anachronistic wonders,” by the San Francisco Chronicle and “similar to Gorey’s work, there is nothing quite like this event,” states HorrorWorks.net. 944 Magazine calls The Edwardian Ball, “An over-the-top, colorful, quirky, eccentric, whimsical-yet-elegant costume party doesn’t even begin to describe the event,” and Buzzfeed calls it “the #1 Steampunk Event in the World.”
Saturday, February 27, 2016: The 7th Annual Edwardian Ball Los Angeles
The Edwardian Ball is presented by co-hosts Rosin Coven and Vau de Vire Society. Ballroom dancing leads way to stunning performances both on and offstage in a collage of fashion, theatre, music, circus performance, and dance. Each year, The Edwardian Ball presents a featured Edward Gorey tale in an original stage performance. This year’s event takes a unique turn, with Edwardian Ball founders Rosin Coven teaming up with longtime collaborators Dark Garden Corsetry in an operatic presentation of Gorey’s ridiculous tale, “The Stupid Joke.” Expect anything but stupidity as these masters of their craft collaborate in an unforgettable tale of a poorly planned joke gone incredibly wrong… And in the spirit of celebrating all things Edward Gorey, Ball co-hosts Vau de Vire Society present a series of vignettes throughout the evening paying homage to the most controversial works of the (in)famous illustrator… guaranteed to pop corsets and ruffle coattails!

LA Shoegaze band SOUND IS LOVV have released their debut EP “Shipwrecks” featuring Mike Byrne and Nicole Fiorentino.
REVIEW BELOW BY ROB WATTS. FOLLOW @RobWattsOnline
“Shipwrecks, the debut e.p. by Los Angeles based band, Sound is Lovv, is a beautiful blend of Shoegaze and Noiserock—stirring lush tones and lo-Fi wavelengths to create a pleasing sounding collection of music. Atmospheric and well-produced, Shipwrecks flows quite well, not veering off the road too much in one direction over another. It’s more or less, your six-song soundtrack to daydreaming your way out of your stressful day. “And Don’t Believe” and “Take Me With You” are saturated with reverb and shimmery guitars, while the vocals exude quite well through the gazing backdrop of sounds. “Love FM” has some rather amazing hooks while the opening and closing tracks bookend the album with instrumentals. Former Smashing Pumpkins members, Mike Byrne and Nicole Fiorentino make an appearance on Shipwrecks as well. It’s a well-worth-the-time listen, especially if you’re into emerging acts with new material. I recommend them. Check out Shipwrecks here and give it a listen! ”

SHANA HALLIGAN PRESENTS
‘BACK TO ME’ RELEASE SHOW
THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 12
AT THE HOTEL CAFÉ
“Let Shana Halligan shoot to the top of your attention. ‘Something Real’ is a slinky, smooth, electro-pop single reminiscent of AlunaGeorge, Hundred Waters, and Son Lux while still treading the delicate intimacies of someone too reserved to overwhelm you with an intense light show. Halligan’s upcoming LP, Back to Me, drops October 16. We’re betting it’s going to be one of the more memorable releases of 2015.” — Nerdist
BACK TO ME, the new album from sultry songstress SHANA HALLIGAN for Plug Research Music, is out now via Plug Research Music. Next month, SHANA HALLIGAN will perform a BACK TO ME release show presented by KCRW at The Hotel Café in Hollywood on Thursday, November 12, marking the first time the songstress will perform the album live. It will be a moving experience for SHANA HALLIGAN and fans alike, surely a moment not to miss.
The charm and charisma of Back To Me is an exploration of human sensuality told through songs of romance, heartache and personal reflection. Adding that perfectly sealed kiss of mystique, pain and hope, HALLIGAN’s uniquely tortured voice brings back the art of classic vocal allure mixed with modern-day, moody production. During and since her time as the lead singer/songwriter of Bitter:Sweet, HALLIGAN has sold more than 500,000 records and has accumulated over 70 album credits to her name.
SHANA HALLIGAN’s return to full form on BACK TO ME is of the flesh, of the heart and of the soul. Smart and sexy, the 13-track album challenges pre-conceived notions of pop music as she mixes her trip-hop background with downtempo, electronic-charged modern jazz. It’s a formula best represented on standout track “Illuminate,” an endearing introspection of unconditional love and acceptance set to the smooth beat of saddened, current-day pop equally comparable to Lorde and Lana Del Rey.
On the rainy day piano sulk of “Been Waiting,” HALLIGAN lets go of all inhibition and bears her total essence for all to witness. It exposes a tumultuous episode in her personal and professional life as it all gets complicated with her pregnancy (HALLIGAN discovered she was pregnant just as she was wrapping Back To Me and gave birth to her son Otis in July), which brings both feelings of intimidation and future dreams of motherhood.
Still, HALLIGAN sounds at her most powerful and most assertive on “Get Gone,” an ode to her past where she indefinitely kisses off all the spirits, relationships, and romances that once haunted her. In one fell swoop, she overcomes life’s biggest hurdles: “Go, get gone / I’m making big moves on my own.” Look for the video for “Get Gone” to debut soon.
“This album is about love, loss, finding my way to happiness and peace, finding strength, owning and accepting my passion, my humanness, feeling weak, and feeling strong again,” says HALLIGAN. “Eroticism, vulnerability, fear, and the deepest gratitude I can imagine. Connection, expression and art. Saying goodbye to anyone who thought I couldn’t make it and not being afraid to let go, to just be me and all that comes with it.”

STILL NIGHT IN L.A.
Tuesday, October 13, 2015, 7:30-8:30 pm
1818 N. Vermont, Los Angeles, (323) 600-1175
Award-winning author, poet, playwright, and memoirist Aram Saroyan celebrates the release of his new detective novel STILL NIGHT IN L.A. (Three Rooms Press) with a reading at Skylight Books on Tuesday, October 13 at 7:30 pm.
“An Evening with Aram Saroyan” will feature the renowned author, with special guests actress Marcia Rodd and poet Michael C Ford, reading excerpts from the STILL NIGHT IN L.A., which author Gerald Nicosia praises as “a novel where the magic is all in the language. A signing follows the reading.
Award-winning journalist and author Richard Setlowe (The Haunting of Suzanna Blackwell) raves, “Aram Saroyan’s STILL NIGHT IN L.A. cruises the mean streets and trendy brunch boites of Los Angeles, this city of angels and psychopaths. His shamus Michael Shepard is a Marlowe for our digital times.”
And renowned author Barry Gifford (Wild at Heart) praises STILL NIGHT IN L.A.: “ram Saroyan nurses the accelerator in a deceptively laconic way, channeling the faultless ratiocination of Charles Willeford (Miami Blues) and Paul Cain (Seven Slayers). STILL NIGHT IN L.A. keeps still until, at just the right moment, he floors it.”
Copies of STILL NIGHT IN L.A. will be available for purchase and signing at the event.

The Southern California LoopFest is back for another round! The greatest, most creative musical event you’ve never heard of returns to diPiazza’s in Long Beach, 5202 E Pacific Coast Hwy, for two nights of music and technology from around the world! http://www.socalloopfest.com
The fest runs Oct 28th and 29th, shows start a 7pm and admission is by donation.
For those of you wondering what is a “LoopFest?” It is a showcase of music and technology performance artists. These artists use hardware and/or software technologies to instantly record and play back sound. It is a diverse, creative, innovative, and fascinating display of talent, science, and art. Looping has been around for decades in academia, avant garde, and incorporates new technologies into making sound.
All of the artists are highly talented, highly creative, highly interesting, and amazingly in technologies and styles. Some are noise, some use traditional song forms, some are ambient, some are powerful, some are subtle. Our debut year for the Rocky Mountain LoopFest features a mix of local and national talent performing a variety of music with an incredible amount of cool technology.
This year the SoCal LoopFest features performers from 8 states and 5 countries. Performers of note include L.A’s own Steuart Liebig, Zack Walters of 3rd Alley, Jambandman David Gans, Aldo Caldo’s comedy/musical presentation, vocal looper extraordinaire Alissa Vox Raw from Toronto Canada, and the incredible music and instruments of Cabezas de Cera from Mexico City, Mexico.
Complete line-up, set-times, venue, and ticket information for each event is online at http://www.socalloopfest.com along with links to artist websites and video recorded performances from previous festivals.

Los Angeles – For Immediate Release
R.K. Shuquem to Debut more than 50 Pieces of New Work on July 31st
@ Last Projects gallery, Hollywoood
Diverse multimedia artist R.K. Shuquem has immersed himself in the challenge of creating 50 original 6″ x 6″ art panels in 50 days, an ambitious undertaking begun on June 8, 2015, commissioned by the Sanchez Art Center.
For the series of 50 panels, Shuquem explores the theme of “jail cells” as a contemplation of psychological and spiritual perspectives, crafting bleak yet mystically evocative black-and-white pieces from India ink. The panels are a continuation of Shuquem’s dystopian and fictional production called Medieval Crimes, which uses imagery from the prison industrial complex in a symbolic manner to comment on human identities, relationships and power structures.
Shuquem will debut the full set of 50 pieces at the Blue Moon 2015 show at LAST Projects Gallery in Hollywood on Friday, July 31st. The night syncs up with the rare occurrence of this year’s blue moon, an extra full moon that occurs only once every 2-3 years. Blue Moon 2015 also offers a chance to see the Element Series, a set of four 66″ x 60″ large format works that Shuquem recently completed for his Medieval Crimes project, a multimedia dystopian fantasy in development since 2011.
In addition to Shuquem’s work, Blue Moon 2015 will feature new original pieces by LA-based psychedelic artist Nora Keyes. Keyes’ will be showing her tonda paintings, which she calls Portals. Her large round mixed media paintings are meant to serve as spiritual transit aids.
Blue Moon 2015 will have a closing reception at LAST Projects on Thursday August 20th.
Shuquem’s fifty panels will then be transported to Pacifica, California’s Sanchez Art Center for their annual 50/50 art show where 90 other artists who have also taken the challenge to create 50 works in 50 days will be showing the results of their efforts. Reception August 28.
Prints of the finished pieces are currently available from saatchiart.com/shuquem.

More About Rk Shuquem:
Rk Shuquem uses symbolism to explore the psychology of oppression in relationship to myth and spirituality. For the last few years, his creative output of ink drawings, printmaking, music, and video has centered around a fictional narrative of a prison-based reality show called Medieval Crimes.
Shuquem’s creative work first developed as part of the DIY punk culture of the 80’s in which he published zines, pressed records, and promoted shows. In the 90’s he began to tour nationally and internationally with his own music and performance groups. He started showing visual art regularly when he opened his own gallery in Chicago in 2005. Shuquem received a BFA in Fine Art in 2004 as well as a BA in Graphic Design from CSU East Bay in Hayward, California. For several years afterwards he worked as Art Director / Studio Manager at Chicago non-profit, The Arts of Life, inc. He also directed Reversible Eye gallery in Chicago from 2005 to 2012. He currently is a mixed media and printmaking instructor at ECF Art Center, Los Angeles.

More About Nora Keyes:
Nora Keyes has been an active member of the Los Angeles underground art and music scene since the mid ’90′s. Her visual and sonic creations are, as she describes Improvisations of the multiplicities of abundant realities that exist parallel to our own solidified view. Her main focus for her visual work is painting and collage combined with paint. In these works she uses multiple perspectives to make a shape shifting condensed landscapes that aid the viewer’s mind to have their own unique vision. Currently she is working on a series of tonda paintings, she calls Portals. These pieces are personal works/ alchemical markers that follow her own psychological metamorphosis as she ages and gains wisdom. Some of these paintings will take years while others may be produced in weeks. Her current contribution musically is a project called Roco Jet. A Roco Jet is a term that came to her in a dream which refers to a highly ornate bejeweled Rococo flying air ship. The music is meant to transport the listener out of their current mood constraints and free them to fly along in sonic emerald opalescent superabundant spheres made by the filigrees of their own mental lattice. Her visual and sonic work communicate to each other aiding in the development of both. My visual work is the way I think musically. I don’t enjoy reading notes off a page so much as I enjoy thinking about music in terms of visual landscapes. The juxtaposition of colors, plays on perspective, and the movements in paint are my musical notations.

My name is Emm and I’m a 22 year old singer/songwriter/producer. I’ve been grinding in the industry for 6 years and been in and out of several contracts. Recently, I finally put out my first song “Avalanche.” I would be honored if you would be open to sharing it on your site. This song is unique because I created all of entirely by myself, and female artists that produce their own work well is rare in the business, so I was hoping that may be something that sparks your interest.

Please let me know if you’d be open to this!

Hello Pretty People,
Meet Jenny Swoish, OC’s sweetest country sweetheart. Check her website or read more about her below!
Jenny Swoish is a pop-country-folk-jazz-whatever-you-like singer-songwriter based in Southern California. With her flexible vocal styling she’s found herself performing in all kinds of venues, from crooning at galas to national anthems in arenas to just belting at the bar next door. When it comes her newest release “To Me,” Jenny cuts to the chase and sings about what young love means to her and how she can only speak the true words of her heart through her music.
“This is an apology song for someone who was close to me, because we had just had an argument. I’m not always great with saying what I mean when I need to, so I wrote him this song so he would know,” Swoish says.
Her debut EP, Tornado, is a nice representation of Jenny herself: fresh, heartfelt, and nothing too terribly serious. You’ll hear an unmistakable dance-twang that screams pop-country in her first single “Tornado,” but you’ll just as soon hear a sophistication in the jazz overtones of “Written in the Stars.” All songs on the EP were written and performed by Jenny Swoish. Tornado is available for purchase on iTunes and Amazon.

I am one of the founders of Dylanfest, and each year we are treated to new talented artists, singers and bands and look forward to our favorites from previous years. Our biggest challenge is getting the word out to new people who love live music and incomparably great songs. If that’s you and you’re reading this, come join us on May 3rd for 8 hours of live Dylan music. For details, go to http://www.andyandrenee.com.
I have been to many of these Dylan Fest events too. These people really know how to put on a show. So much talent in one place at one time. There is something like 50 different performers that come out on stage and play a song or two with the main band, Hard Rain, and they all rock the house. Look forward to it every year. Thanks for the reminder.
Ten years of attending these Dylsnfests – now in its 25th year has turned me from a casual Dylan fan into one with a true deep appreciation of his 500+ compositions – on 100s of topics in all music genres. And you will meet wonderful people – Hard Rain and their magical network of musician friends, attract a fun, interesting, caring fan base – you will enjoy the day! See http://www.andyandrenee.com for details – May 3 2015 in Torrance – a well spent $30-35.
Dylanfest – celebrating Bob Dylan’s birthday for the 25th year!!

At this intimate session, attendees will have the opportunity to present their music and receive instant feedback from one of the industry’s most sought-out executives who selects, commissions and licenses music for campaigns for some of the world’s most recognizable brands. Jason’s insights come from 20+ years of experience working in radio, management, consulting, and now as a music supervisor. He’s also a DJ on taste-maker radio station KCRW 89.9-FM.

NARIP’s Music Supervisor Sessions have resulted in over 200 song placements in major TV shows, movies and commercials as well as artist management, music publishing and licensing deals for participants. And creative collaborations that have resulted are too numerous to mention.
“I’ve had 3 managers and 5 years of plugging away on the Internet for contacts and had more success getting material in front of a music supervisor with NARIP’s sessions than anything previously! Please keep it up, I will definitely attend more!” – Shay Dillon, Independent

My name is Sage Whitaker, and I along with my friend, Zoe Jones, made a video promposal to ask Zayn Malik and Harry Styles of One Direction to prom. Since we were in ninth grade, we knew that we wanted to ask a celebrity to prom, so much so that we put it on our ‘high school bucket list.’ Now that we have actually chosen who to ask, made our video, and put it out there, we just hope that the members of One Direction can end up viewing our video in time for our prom (May 9th, 2015 in Los Angeles, CA.) It would honestly make all of our prom dreams come true considering our love for One Direction. Thank you for considering to share our video, it means the world to us.

Hey there, I’m Alex Dawson. I’m a local Singer/Songwriter from Miami, FL and I would LOVE for you guys to publish about me and my music on your blog. Let me talk a little bit about me and my accomplishments so far. I am an artist working with MasterKey Entertainment, the founder being my manager. Together, we traveled to Atlanta, Georgia to attend the Driven Music Conference. My manager, Vanessa Spatz, was a sponsor and so I had the opportunity to perform one of my original songs in front of an A&R from Epic Records and both Zack and Kenneth from ZK Productions. They loved me and my music so I was offered to go back to produce some tracks with ZK Productions which are known for producing for bands like All Time Low and Mayday Parade. I am now following up with Epic Records. I just released my first Single called “Your Story” and I am getting ready to go back to Atlanta to finish my first EP. You can contact me through this email or my manager’s email. Thank you
“Your Story” by Alex Dawson

Don’t miss Sasha’s Bloc’s CD release “Heart on Fire” featuring Jane MONHEIT and Alvin CHEA.
Where : Catalina Bar & Grill @ 6725 Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90028
When : March 20, 2015 8:30 PM & March 21, 2015 8:30 PM
Sasha’s Bloc will also be having another CD release
Where: Vibrato Grill and Jazz @ 2930 Beverly Glen Circle 90077 Bel Air, CA, US
When: March 18, 2015 8:00 PM & March 19, 2015 8:00 PM
An intriguing ensemble founded in 2012, Sasha’s Bloc is an amalgam of varied artists, nationalities and experiences, all fueled by bassist and songwriter Alex Gershman to deliver a sound that is consistently big, boisterous, full of spirit and rich in everything that makes jazz linger as an American phenomenon. On Heart On Fire, Gershman is honored to have Grammy-nominated vocalist Jane Monheit perform on multiple tracks.
The group has built a name for itself in recent years via multiple sold out concerts at the key Jazz Clubs in Los Angeles, including Catalina Bar and Grill, Vibrato and Vitello’s. Gershman’s goal, via the group’s successful performances and now on Heart On Fire, is to create a signature sound for Sasha’s Bloc that he describes as “fresh, well-developed and above all lyrically progressive.” Citing Fats Waller, Scott Joplin and Duke Ellington as primary examples, Gershman comments, “My hope is that the Sasha’s Bloc will help bring these great American cultural achievements to modern life and contemporary audiences.”

The Youngest at Kulak’s Woodshed on February 22nd
In March of 2014, we formed The Youngest in the small, yet thanks to ZZ Top, infamous, town of La Grange, Texas. Coming from San Francisco, Chicago, Houston and Boston, we gelled as a musical group by living, eating, and playing together all day every day on a 99-acre ranch. Our first gigs were at dive bars (I mean REAL dive bars, made out of plywood) and saloons in front of who would become in a few short months our diehard La Grange fans. The newness of our surroundings proved invaluable to our creative process and we used the desolate beauty around us to write songs that reflected the incredible shift our lives had just experienced.
We recorded our album in two parts: half on the ranch in La Grange and half at our friends brand new studio in Nashville: Wild Road. It wasn’t easy whittling down our diverse and incredibly personal catalogue of music from 25+ original songs to 11 but we did it, creating an album, Feral Road, which is equal parts rock and roll, folk, and country. Feral Road was released on October 3rd of 2014. Tracks number 1 (Our Town), 2 (Thick As Thieves) , 3 (Art of Life) and 9 ((Don’t Tell Me That) I’m The One) are Feral Road’s singles.
You can find a streaming link of Feral Road on SoundCloud here:
And a drop box file here with downloadable attachments here:
Immediately after completing our album, we embarked on a 35+ stop, self booked Midwest tour to show our family and friends what we had been working on for the last six months. The show was a resounding success and included a show with rising country group Hugh Bob and the Hustle in Kansas City and a sold out performance in Chicago. We pride ourselves on our live shows, which we think showcase our musicianship and passion. After seeing one of our shows in Detroit, one writer suggested “schedule in pen, not pencil, a time to see The Youngest”
Being such a young band, we’re definitely looking forward to our future, which includes a four-week West Coast tour in February including shows at storied venues such as the Cubby Bear in Chicago and Off Broadway in Saint Louis. We hope to break into the festival scene this summer and continue to grow and improve as an independent band.

QUINN ARCHER TO APPEAR AT LA’S FAMOUS “THE MINT”
Rock & soul singer-songwriter Quinn Archer, and featuring the 17th street artists, will appear at LA’s treasured music club, The Mint, Friday January 16th at 9:15 p.m. (www.quinn-archer.com). Recognized as one of LA’s leading emerging gothic soul artist, Quinn Archer is known for her gritty bluesy rock style singing with pure and refreshing vulnerability.
The word diva calls to mind some of music’s most acclaimed vocalists, and most infamous bad-girl behavior. Fortunately, Rock & Soul singer Quinn Archer is the quintessential diva, but only in the former sense. Archer’s tunes, from the smoldering “Dark Places,” to the quiet, thoughtful ballad “Rest of My Days,” are siren songs—her soulful voice drawing in listeners; her lyrics expressing a disembodied longing featuring unrelenting emotion that are simply beyond words.
Doors open at 7:30 p.m. Tickets: Pre-sales $10.00; $12.00 at the door. (http://themintla.com/event.cfm?id=175713&cart)
The Mint: 6010 West Pico Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90035. Phone: 323.954.9400. http://www.themintla.com
Quinn Archer released her first North American EP entitled “Dark Places” in late 2014.

GO BETTY GO NEW EP REBOOT OUT ON JANUARY 27TH
NEW MUSIC VIDEO FOR THE SONG “IT HAUNTS YOU NOW”
RECORD RELEASE PARTY ON JANUARY 25TH AT THE ROXY THEATRE
WITH THE DOLLYROTS AND A PRETTY MESS
Hailing from the outskirts of Los Angeles the fiery ladies of Go Betty Go are back with their original line-up and new EP REBOOT, produced by Ted Hutt (The Gaslight Anthem, Mighty Mighty BossTones, Flogging Molly) out on January 27.
Catch the new video for the song “It Haunts You Now” here: http://youtu.be/GLGNv_bpysU
With REBOOT, the incomparable Latina quartet is about to re-establish themselves as one of punk rock’s most original forces. A gloriously rough and tumble recording bristling with the band’s characteristic elegant, melodic aggression, a compelling showcase for Betty Cisneros’ big, roaring guitar, singer Nicolette Vilar’s soulful, siren call and the momentous urgency of Michelle Rangel’s bass and Aixa Vilar’s tumultuous drumming.
The new material’s more penetrating emotional statements reflect their singularly unusual shared history. Formed in 2000 when they were all attending high school in Glendale California, Go Betty Go swiftly ascended from local shows to a standing room only weeknight residency at Los Angeles dive Mr. T Bowl’s to a national reputation via reams of critical acclaim and non-stop gigging. Go Betty Go surged through two lengthy Warped tours, frequent appearances in Mexico, an attention getting invasion of South by Southwest and seemingly had it made. With the release of 2005’s Nothing is More on SideOneDummy Records, their first full length album, set out a coast to coast tour with MxPx. They never finished it—Nicolette, exhausted, unhappy and burned out, suddenly quit. Now, Go Betty Go is back as suddenly as they had split.
That renewal and excitement crackles through REBOOT like a high voltage jolt of electricity, and the girls are poised to reclaim their rightful prominence as some of the brightest, boldest women in punk rock.
REBOOT will be available for pre-order on January 13.
LA PSYCHEDELIC FOLK ROCKERS TRAVEL THROUGH TIME ON THEIR NEW SINGLE

This is the first track to surface from their upcoming full-length sophomore release, set for Summer 2015. After the success of their first album MONSTERS! (“Absolutely wild and unique.” -Musical Seduction), Northern Strangers went back into the studio and rediscovered connections with the past, finding old fears and dreams relevant in our present modern age. This first single shows off inspiring musicianship and a commitment to painting a living, breathing world both musically and lyrically.

The members’ varied musical backgrounds, ranging from classical to jazz to reggae to folk, provide a distinct flavor of psychedelic fun. Northern Strangers have built a reputation for playing energetic, charged sets throughout Los Angeles, including The Viper Room and The Roxy; as well as local Oktoberfests, wineries and street fairs. The band tours regularly and has headlined Black Mountain Family Reunion Music And Arts Festival in Guffey, CO for the past 2 years. In 2013 Northern Strangers independently released their debut album MONSTERS! -A folk rock concept piece called “smooth, energetic, romantic, fun, and thought provoking”

We look forward to this being the first of many events at KOMBUCHA DOG. Let’s make this one count! It’s an open invitation with free entry for all.
‘Your Big Day’ is a story of unrequited love, one shared but never invested in. It is the story of a man holding his tongue until the aisle; a love known all too well by many but admitted by only a few.
The LA-based rock quintet Dream Hydra brings together pop hooks and rock intensity, energized by rich, soaring harmonies.
Songwriter Mark Popeney and guitarist Mark Stephenson started a band with dreams of tight vocals and memorable tunes. When vocalist Michael Pourshalimi joined in 2010, the Dream Hydra sound came to life. The mythical Hydra has many heads – if you cut one off, two will grow back in its place. After a couple heads were slashed clean off, the addition of Rory Snively on bass and Patrick Weber on drums finally gave the band the hard-hitting groove they’d been searching for.
Anchored by the co-lead vocals of Michael and the two Marks, Dream Hydra’s brand of rock is original yet familiar. With thoughtful songwriting that dances between pop and prog, polished vocal harmonies evocative of the ‘70s, and a punk edge, Dream Hydra is at times poppy, at times artful, and at all times unforgettable. The Dream Hydra sound is an ear-catching mix that recalls the Beatles, Fun, and Muse.
Dream Hydra recently released its debut album, Radiant, available on iTunes, Amazon, and your favorite online music retailer.
Dream Hydra’s epic first album, Radiant, tells a powerful story of love, the end of the world, and new beginnings.
Led by the three-way lead vocals of Pourshalimi, Popeney, and Stephenson, Dream Hydra channels classic rock greats like Queen and the Beatles in the new millennium with infectious tunes and soaring, bombastic harmonies. With toe-tapping beats courtesy of Snively on bass and Weber on drums, Dream Hydra mixes pop, alternative, progressive rock, and reggae in a blender and serves it by the pitcher. With ringing guitars, swirling synths, and rumbling bass, Radiant will have you coming back for seconds.
The end of civilization. A new love. The search for answers. Featuring songs penned by Popeney, Stephenson, and Pourshalimi, Radiant takes the listener on a timeless journey. A vision of love and loss in a shattered world. Radiant asks the question: is there a chance for redemption when all hope is gone?

GO BETTY GO ARE BACK WITH THEIR ORIGINAL LINE UP AND THEIR NEW EP “REBOOT”
COMING IN EARLY 2015
SEE THEM ON STAGEIT ON NOVEMBER 1 FOR A LIVE STREAM SHOW TO GET A SNEAK PEEK AT SOME OF THE SONGS FROM THE UPCOMING EP
Picking up where they left off the fiery and fearless girls of Go Betty Go have reunited with their original line-up, completed a PledgeMusic campaign and are planning to release an EP of all new material in early 2015. Currently the band is wrapping up recording with producer Ted Hutt.
Join them on November 1 at 6:30pM PST on StageIt.com for a special live stream show, where they will be playing songs from their upcoming EP “Reboot.” Get your ticket before they’re gone at:
In 2004 the band caught the attention of SideOneDummy Records and released their debut EP, Worst Enemy that spring. They toured seemingly nonstop from coast to coast behind it before entering the studio with producer Ted Hutt (Flogging Molly) to lay down a full-length album. The resulting record, Nothing Is More, was released in September 2005, accompanied by more touring with stints on the Van’s Warped Tour, television appearances, song placements on various TV shows/movies and video games.
Hailing from Los Angeles, CA, Go Betty Go are Sisters Nicolette (lead vocals) and Aixa Vilar (drums), Betty Cisneros (guitar), and Michelle Rangel (bass). Now with their DIY roots firmly planted the foursome is revitalized and road ready. Despite the popular saying, punk rock is still very much alive and kicking.

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 3 AT 7PM
Ricardo Montalban Theatre
1615 Vine St. LA 90028
The long-awaited memoir by one of the most influential and beloved musicians of our time. In HERBIE HANCOCK, the legendary jazz musician and composer reflects on a life and a thriving career that has spanned seven decades. A true innovator, Hancock has had an enormous influence on both acoustic and electric jazz, R&B and hip-hop, with his ongoing exploration of different musical genres, winning fourteen Grammy awards along the way. From his beginnings as a child prodigy to his work in Miles Davis’s second great quintet; from his innovations as the leader of his own groundbreaking sextet to his collaborations with everyone from Wayne Shorter to Joni Mitchell and Stevie Wonder; Herbie Hancock reveals the method behind Hancock’s undeniable musical genius. Hancock shares his musical influences, colorful behind-the-scenes stories, his long and happy marriage, and how Buddhism inspires him creatively and personally. Honest, enlightening, and as electrifyingly vital as the man who wrote it, Herbie Hancock promises to be an invaluable contribution to jazz literature and a must-read for fans and music lovers. (Viking)
This evening Herbie Hancock will be in conversation with LA Times Jazz Critic Don Heckman about his life, career and his craft. Questions will be collected prior to the start of the event and a book signing will follow the event.

Compton musician MARLON WELCH is a musical amalgam. Defying traditional genre categories, Welch carves out his own niche in the current musical landscape by combining musical elements evocative of old school R&B legends like Luther Vandross and Marvin Gaye with modern pop tastes to produce a fresh sound. His new single IN THE CROWD is the exciting first glimpse into his eclectic musical persona. The track fearlessly kicks off with Welch’s bare vocals and quickly explodes into an up-tempo musical melting pot combining a strong modern beat with jazzy referential brass accompaniments. By harkening back to earlier eras of Blues and Soul, Welch unpretentiously elevates his R&B sound to a level of sophistication that is often lacking in the genre while simultaneously injecting levity through its pop characteristics. This unexpected merger of old and new produces a sound that is undeniably feel-good and catchy while maintaining musical integrity through its classic R&B references.
As a lifelong artist, musical integrity has notable importance for Welch. Growing up in a household dedicated to classic R&B and performing weekly in the church choir left Welch’s musical identity imprinted with elements of soul, funk, and gospel. Concurrently, Welch maintained appreciation for modern performers and sounds. Passionate about entertainment from a young age, Welch entered a local poetry contest, which gave him the opportunity to meet Beyoncé Knowles. After hearing Welch’s piece, Welch recalls the living legend meeting his gaze and firmly telling him to keep writing and never abandon his musical dreams. Welch cites this experience as a defining moment; when his musical dreams became his identity.
While IN THE CROWD is not Welch’s first foray into the music industry, it marks his first true musical introduction to the world. As a young artist, Welch released an EP, which led to prominent opportunities with Capitol Records that exposed him to all aspects of life as a recording artist. Having opened for major artists, composed music, performed in front of large audiences as part of a national tour, and recorded a music video for his lead single, Welch was fully immersed in the music industry by age 20.
After being delivered a shocking medical diagnosis, Welch suffered clinical depression and chose to take a hiatus from recording to focus on his health and education by returning to the Los Angeles Recording School. Through months of therapy and introspection, Welch achieved a deeper understanding of himself. When he slowly resumed songwriting and collaborating with other artists, he found that he had a radically different persona. His message was more sincere, his delivery more vulnerable, and his image more bohemian. Welch had entered a new era musically, and began developing a new EP as an independent artist, allowing him greater sincerity in both his image and sound. Despite facing adversity and spiritual rebirth at a young age, Welch maintains exuberance by choosing to boldly reemerge on the music scene as a bohemian, eclectic artist inspired by Soul and infused with modern pop/dance as showcased in IN THE CROWD.
‘Stand Up for Main Street’ 2014 – a Comedy Benefit for National Consumer Watchdog Group Public Citizen
Because Democracy Doesn’t Happen in a Vacuum, Good Government Groups Need Public Support as Well as a Great Sense of Humor
WHAT: An all-star line-up of comics are waiting in the wings to lend their support to Public Citizen – one of the nation’s preeminent public interest groups – at its annual comedy fest, “Stand Up for Main Street.” For 43 years, the take-no-prisoners consumer advocacy organization has been standing up to government and the undue influence of corporations. Now we have a group of hard-charging comics who are returning the favor by doing stand-up for us.
The Washington, D.C.-based watchdog group is a champion of the public interest, representing citizens’ rights before the executive branch agencies, Congress and the courts. The organization remains fiercely independent because it accepts no money from corporate or government entities, relying on funding from member support, foundations and the generosity of average Americans. Its programs include public health and safety, financial reform, campaign finance reform, fair trade practices, government transparency, environmentally sound energy policy and more.
WHEN: 6:30–8:30 p.m., Sunday, Oct. 19
WHERE: The Writers Guild Theater, 135 South Doheny Drive, Beverly Hills, Calif.
WHO: Steve Skrovan, Public Citizen board member, co-host

STREAM THE FIRST TWO TRACKS OFF CRYSTAL SISTER’S SELF-TITLED EP, OUT OCTOBER 3, 2014
Nothing can quite prepare you for the leap that Sonya Bender of Crystal Sister has taken with her first self-titled EP. Through the collaborative efforts of Bender and producer Daniel Luttrell (Sky Ferreira and Nikka Costa), Crystal Sister successfully bridges the gap between the genres of lo-fi chill wave and ethereal pop. With a wide array of layered vocals, shimmering synths, and tracks boasting in fresh, insightful lyrics, Bender’s artistic vision is truly realized on the upcoming EP which is both aesthetically moving and compelling. The music itself focuses primarily on the joy and heartbreak of relationships. From the harsh realities of love lost and rediscovered, the struggles to remain hopeful, to the battles with one’s identity.
“Inside My Heart” revels in the overwhelming vulnerability between lovers brought together by true passion, while spotlighting the disillusion of love that comes from giving oneself entirely to another.
“This is likely the track that is missing from the Drive Soundtrack…Complete playlist composite of Chvrches, Grimes, and Pawws…”
“She showcases a pop edge that seemingly draws from the likes of Gwen Stefani, in being super slick, whilst focusing on massive choruses..”

826LA is inviting all dancing machines to dance their hearts out for a worthy cause. Every dollar raised goes to 826LA’s free writing and tutoring programs.

Contestants who raise more than $2,500 will get to “turn the beat around” and have their song request thrown into the mix during the final hour of the dance-a-thon.
Additional perks will be given to top moneymakers, and many more prizes and surprises are in store.
The growing list of sponsors includes Bites Desserts, Blue Bottle Coffee, Clif Bar, Flipbooth, Golden Road, Homeboy Industries, Jarritos, The Magic Castle, Plumb, Tito’s Handmade Vodka, TOMS, The Unique Space and Warby Parker.

The multitalented band, FOREBEAR, originally known as Wise Cub, who will be making their debut performance at The Silver Lake Lounge on Tuesday, September 9th @ 10:00PM. With a strong vocal presence and superior harmonies, the band has made the jaws drop of many.
You can check out live performance here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UOgezHjBBuo
Originally known as WiseCub, which formed in 2010. Scott Goldbaum (lead vocals, guitar), Molly Rogers (viola, keys, vocals), Mike Musselman (drums), and Nick Chamian (bass) seamless went through their evolution to Forebear a year ago. Taking cues from cinematic and classical influences, Forebear creates and molds a surreal listening experience with solos that are sometimes brooding, sparse statements; and other times lyrical, fleeting phrases.
Flawlessly weaving together a truly unique voice with spectacular harmonies, Forebear creates beautiful songs that people will talk about long after the final notes are played. “Sixty seconds in and suddenly I’m aware that I don’t care about the band I came to see anymore, so long as he keeps singing. The honesty and passion in his has the entire audience holding its breath and when he finally stops, we roar.” (Flip XY Magazine)
You can listen to their new single here: https://soundcloud.com/forebearband/north-korea-the-five-stages-of-grief

On October 3, 2014 Voila Gallery and The Lyric Theatre welcome Ruthie Foster, for the release of her new album “Promise of a Brand New Day”.
From houses of worship to houses of blues, Ruthie Foster has always been a rafter-rattler. And with a soul-filled voice honed in Texas churches, she can move audiences to tears or ecstasy — sometimes in a single song. Her last two albums, 2009’s The Truth According to Ruthie Foster and 2012’s Let It Burn, moved the Recording Academy to deliver Best Blues Album Grammy nominations; her latest, Promise of a Brand New Day, releasing August 19 on Blue Corn Music, could make her a contender once more.
For this effort, Foster put Meshell Ndegeocello in charge as her producer and then got out of the way, letting the lauded singer and bassist call the shots regarding players, takes, and mixing. “I wanted this album to highlight Ruthie’s voice and also communicate her vibe, give a fuller picture of her artistry and ability,” explains Ndegeocello. “She really trusted me with the music and I think we’ve made something that complements and holds its own alongside the power of her voice.”
Ndegeocello played bass and enlisted her regular guitarist Chris Bruce (Sheryl Crow) and keyboardist Jebin Bruni (Aimee Mann), plus drummer Ivan Edwards and backing vocalist Nayanna Holley. Foster did request two special guests: guitarist Doyle Bramhall II and singer Toshi Reagon.

TICKETS NOW ON SALE FOR VAGABOND’S “9 CIRCLES” AMIDST RENEWED CONFLICT IN IRAQ
Los Angeles, August 20, 2014 – A volatile young man and ex-soldier must face his demons in the award-winning 9 CIRCLES by Bill Cain. New L.A. theatre company, VAGABOND, produces while Alexis Jacknow directs the show, which runs Sept. 12 – Oct. 5 at The Sherry Theater in North Hollywood’s Arts District.
Based on the true story of Iraq War soldier Steven Dale Green and the 2006 Mahmudiyah killings, 9 CIRCLES follows Private Daniel Reeves on a haunting journey while seeking redemption for crimes he committed during his time in Iraq. Green was the first to be convicted under the Military Extraterritorial Jurisdiction Act in 2009 for the rape and killing of a young Iraqi girl and her family. He committed suicide last February. “We are the first production to mount this play since Steven Dale Green committed suicide in prison this year,” says Jacknow. “There is a responsibility and gravity that comes along with that that the cast and I want to honor. I hope that 9 CIRCLES will make audiences reflect on how we pass judgment on others, both in our daily lives and as citizens of this country.”
The audience is the jury in Reeves’ trial and, in the 36-seat Sherry Theater, they will have no choice but to witnesses an acute examination of some of the most complex issues facing our society today.
“We wanted our inaugural show to be something relevant that sparked conversation, but also took people on an amazing journey,” explains Executive Director of Production, Alex Hughes. “9 CIRCLES uses a soldier’s post-traumatic mind as a lens to explore topics of the post-war health of veterans, capital punishment, and the state of our nation after an unpopular 13-year war.”
To pay tribute to soldiers, past and present, VAGABOND will present a special preview of 9 CIRCLES exclusively for veterans and their families on Thursday, September 11th. VAGABOND has worked closely with the USVAA (United States Veterans Artists Alliance) throughout the production and will present talkbacks with American veterans at the Sunday matinee performances.
The cast for 9 CIRCLES includes Jake Green, Lucas Dixon, Skip Pipo, and Margaux Susi. The design and creative team includes Donald Pawloski, scenic design; Season Mustful, costume design; and Meagan McGrory, stage manager.
Tickets start at $15. Discounted tickets are available for $12 for active-duty and retired military personnel.
VAGABOND is a project of the Pasadena Arts Council’s EMERGE program.

KICKBALL FOR A HOME Celebrity Kickball Tournament
Set for August 16 at USC
Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption launches new national fundraising campaign
WHAT: Join the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption (DTFA) for an exciting kickball tournament, where top teams and celebrity supporters will go head to head to win the ultimate championship, all to help children in foster care find forever families. Kickball for a Home will be held in Los Angeles on August 16, 2014, at the University of Southern California’s Cromwell Field from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Because adoption is a team effort, Kickball for a Home will raise money and awareness for children in Los Angeles, and the more than 100,000 children in the U.S. who are waiting in foster care to be adopted.
The campaign will launch on July 14, 2014 on CrowdRise at CrowdRise.com/KickballForAHome, where players can register to compete in a fundraising challenge for team spots in the single elimination tournament. The final teams in the championship game will win the chance to be joined on the field by celebrity players.
Kickball for a Home will have non-stop action including live musical performances, celebrity appearances, kickball skeeball, corn hole, giant Jenga, oversized bowling, and more.
The Coca-Cola Company generously supports the National “Kickball for a Home” program so that funds raised go directly to support the Foundation’s programs and awareness initiatives.
As the only nonprofit charity dedicated to finding homes for children waiting in foster care, the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption will use the money raised to educate the public on adoption from foster care, and provide grants to support more adoption recruiters across the country who use the Foundation’s signature child-focused recruitment program. Children served through this program are up to 300% more likely to get adopted – children who many have considered “unadoptable.”
WHO: Confirmed talent attendees and players forthcoming.
WHEN: Saturday, August 16, 2014
WHERE: University of Southern California – Cromwell Field
850 West 37th St., Los Angeles, CA 90089
Official hashtag: #KickballForAHome

VIO – KEEP ON LOVIN’ LISTENING PARTY
Thursday, July 10, 2014
AROMA BAR AND GRILL
(formerly Aroma Bakery Cafe)
7373 Sunset Blvd, LA 90046
Los Angeles-based EDM band, Vío, are releasing their debut EP, Keep On Lovin’, which features a mix of electro pop, trip hop and neoclassical dark wave. You are invited to their Listening Party, and feast on free cookies and coffee on Thursday, July 10th at Aroma Bakery Bar and Grill, 7373 Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, 90046.
There is plenty of Valet parking behind Aroma entering from Sunset Blvd just before the restaurant. It is FREE the 1st hour, and $3 after your 1st hour. Aroma Bar and Grill (323) 850-8120.
Band info: The Keep On Lovin’ EP is partially produced by ‘Scobra’, and features collaborations with ‘Gentleman Junkie’ front-man, Ed Korn, and ‘So High Above the Sky’. Keep On Lovin’ precedes their single, Don’t Say That, receiving airplay in Europe, as Vío was selected as Featured Artist on the radio show Gaga Eletrix GETV. Vío was recently Artist of the Week on Normality’s RantRadio Industrial, and made it to the top 10 finalists in the Blast Your Music Contest at Stage Red Studios.
When onstage, Vío combines electronic dance music with live instrumentation such as viola, guitar, drums, keyboard and bass guitar. This is reflected in the music of Keep On Lovin’, mixing modern and ancient, organic and digital. Keep On Lovin’ has many themes like desire, compassion and even politics, with a dark, seductive and ethereal sound you can dance to. The upbeat, yet mellow “Out of Sync (Renaissance Remix)” is followed by neoclassical “Question”, which delves into themes like the Inquisition and the Occupy movement. “Don’t Say That” is a trip hop anthem which ponders censorship, and was chosen as May’s selected Track of the Month on UK’s Ads Record’s Podcast and streamed globally. Vio’s video, ‘Don’t Say That’, has also been chosen as Video of the Month for July!
The Great Root Beer Taste Off will finally settle the question on everyone’s mind – what IS the best root beer? Tasters will have more than 75 types of root beers, birch beers and sarsaparillas to sample and make their own decision. In addition, guests can enjoy music and soda fun in the parking lot and stock up on all of Galco’s beverage offerings.
As always, Galco’s Summer Soda Tasting 4 is a fundraiser for the Friends of the Southwest Museum Coalition that is working to re-open Los Angeles’ first museum as well as the Casa de Adobe to display portions of the museum’s spectacular collections.
To buy all-inclusive $12 ticket ($5 for children ages 5-11) and more information: http://www.friendsofthesouthwestmuseum.com. (Tickets are $15 day of event.) Advanced tickets are on sale at Galco’s (cash or check only).

The band is a work of collaborative musical art by Gabe Rowland and Nic Capelle. It was a chance meeting between music lifers: Gabe’s band opened for Nic’s in Chicago, the two – Gabe from Northeast LA and Nic from Western Australia – bonded over a mutual love of “dusty, old vintage gospel and lost blues.”
“On an ice-cold walk down Irving Park in Chicago,” Gabe explains, “we decided: heavy gospel influence, a little garage-psychedelic… We always acknowledge those parameters,” Gabe continues, “but the music takes on a life of its own. Once it gets dragged through all the early Van Halen records that are in your gut, it’s going to come out modern.”
A lot of craft goes into what sounds like abandon. Gabe sat behind the kit for Moby, John Cale and his own bands Momma Stud (Virgin) and The Peak Show (Atlantic), and is a go-to collaborator for Beastie Boys producer Mario C. Nic’s first band won an international talent search when he was 20. His later outfit Capelle built a fierce following in Europe.
Their sound has already been prized by music supervisors. The songs “No Use” from the debut album added dramatic punch to the season finale of USA’s “Suits.” And “Get Things Done” soundtracked Carl’s Jr.’s “X-Men: Days of Future Past” ad while “Dirty Girl” fit the vibe for FX’s “Sons of Anarchy.”

I hope this email finds you well . How are you ? I was hoping to catch your interest re: the following project I am working on .
As I noticed driving through Los Angeles how many retail store fronts are available for rent and just siting there empty I revisited the idea again to use empty store fronts as stage to showcase local artists. A public ART installation that will reenergize the neighborhood so to speak
My thought behind it is , that trendy shopping areas in Los Angeles are NOT losing its cachet, they are simply in transition to become even more beautiful. Even though a lot of the stores are vacant, despite drastic rent reductions, it sometimes does look a little meek around town , realizing that all the glamorous stores have either closed or moved and have left behind a rather “ugly” promenade of empty store fronts .
In order to make this transition a bit more exciting , I have teamed up with local commercial real estate agents and landlords, gathered 8 very talented artists , and we are trying to use the empty store fronts for ART displays until a new renter have signed a new lease .
Everyone benefits from it :
– Provides an exciting new way to market vacant properties to potential tenants
– Increases pedestrian traffic to surrounding busainess
– Showcases vacant retail spaces in new ways, inspiring new users
– allows artists to showcase their work to exhibit their work
– Offers emerging artists the oppurtunity to exhibit their work
– Increases the presence of ART in the community
So in order to cover direct expenses , I started a kickstarter campaign hoping to raise and to create awareness for this project . I got a great responds , many well wishes, but I was hoping that maybe you would be interested to highlight the effort of promoting community art as well ? It is such a great project and it does take a village to get it going .
I have included two links with more information and I am hoping that I maybe caught your interest at least a little and it would be great if you could make a pledge or help to spread the word .
I appreciate your time . Thank you .

7HORSE RELEASE NEW ALBUM SONGS FOR A VOODOO WEDDING
BAND PLAYS MOLLY MALONE’S ON JUNE 29
“Songs for a Voodoo Wedding’ are back alley tales, gin joint anecdotes and street corner legend backs by throw back blues playing which would make Robert Johnson stand up and profess his love to 7Horse.” – Innocent Words
7Horse’s Joie Calio and Phil Leavitt are releasing their new album Songs For A Voodoo Wedding today, produced by the two longtime friends and bandmates, engineered by Jonathan Chi and Scott Gordon, mixed by Dave Way and mastered by Howie Weinberg. The band is currently on the first wave of their summer dates.
“their musical chemistry is clear throughout the album” –Celebrity Café
The duo’s well-versed roots in rock ‘n’ roll’s rich past and previous success with both solo and collaborative projects have catapulted 7Horse to noteworthy status. The release of the new album coincides with The Holy Day of Voodoo: St. Johns Eve, a celebration that honors the Voodoo Queen Maria Laveau, and much of the inspiration for the new album comes from a visit to New Orleans. The Big Easy is a city the vocalist/drummer had visited often while on tour, but he’d never spent considerable time there until he went to attend a friend’s wedding. “It got the juices flowing.” Explained Leavitt said.
”a unique sound with skill behind it” – The Examiner.com
From Calio’s dirty blues licks to Leavitt’s earnest, unadorned vocals, Songs for a Voodoo Wedding sounds like the work of two guys who’ve turned over the soil and found the roots. Calio points out, it doesn’t feel like a do-over. “We don’t feel like this is the second bite off the apple,” he says. “That was a different apple. This is the one.”

“His lyrics are woven in aberration, sarcasm and a subtle absurd prestige with a visceral delivery and burly vocals that exude confidence and grace like someone on the radio. Nhat is a far landing from the sometimes awkward and amateur transmittal stumbling in from the bulk of most DIY nerdcore.” – Artist PR

My name is Morgan and I work with Substance Co Music. We have worked with bands like Tame Impala and Young the Giant, and are currently working with the new indie-pop band “Imperial Mammoth”. The band is a personal favorite of mine. Check out the new single, “Little Earthquakes”
The full “Gold Confetti” LP will be released later this month.
Learn more about the band-
Leonard Jackson / Laura Jane Scott
For fans of: The Naked and Famous, CHVRCHES, Foster The People
Imperial Mammoth began in bed. When musician Laura Jane Scott lay in recovery from knee-surgery, her boyfriend and fellow singer-songwriter Leonard Jackson brought his guitar to pass the time. Together they sang, and wrote some songs, and thought it sounded good enough to record.
It didn’t take long for people to agree. Their debut single “Requiem On Water” landed in the Twilight Breaking Dawn Part 1 soundtrack (certified gold), and featured in a key scene in the film. Just a week after their own wedding, Laura and Leonard played their first show as Imperial Mammoth to 1500 fans at the Breaking Dawn premiere.
They soon followed with the EP, “Where Satellites Fall,” building their fan base with over thirty placements in TV and film, including spots in Parenthood, About A Boy, Awkward, Grey’s Anatomy, Private Practice, Ragz, and Drop Dead Diva.
The band grew, and the sound got bigger. They enlisted cutting-edge producer Nate Pyfer (Kascade, Mideau), and mixer Mark Needham (The Killers, Walk The Moon, Imagine Dragons) to actualize their biggest work to date, the new LP: Gold Confetti (out June 24th, 2014 on Bleed101 Records).
Even as the music propels them into daring territories, the eleven song album finds the band — much like the great beasts that gave them their name — stuck in the past. From their fondness for Raymond Chandler’s Hollywood (The Last One To Leave The Party), and the bittersweet pull of distant loves (The Limitless Hours and Mooncatcher), to their re-casting of a local crime as a mediation on villainy (Fifty-Five Fires), Imperial Mammoth is a band that can’t let go.
It makes sense then that they describe the new album as a study of timeless themes. Or, as put by Jackson, Gold Confetti is an album of “songs about love, loss, and longing — $.099 each.”
They will be touring nationally in conjunction with the record’s release.

LOUIS PRIMA JR. AND THE WITNESSES TO RELEASE “BLOW” JUNE 10
ON WARRIOR RECORDS / UNIVERSAL MUSIC DISTRIBUTION
BAND TO PLAY THE MINT OH JUNE 6
A different kind of musical dawn is coming with flashes of rowdy big band, simmering soul and swaggering rock ‘n’ roll as Louis Prima Jr. and the Witnesses prepare to ignite a new legacy with their second full-length album, Blow out June 10 on Warrior Records/Universal Music Distribution.
See the video for the song GO LETS GO here:
With Blow, Prima and the Witnesses revive a boogie woogie spirit for the modern generation. “The message is to have a good time and enjoy life,” explains Prima. “Get up and move. This album is hyper. It makes you want to dance.” Not content to sit on the legacy they so passionately protect, LPJ and the band are taking a page from his father’s playbook, by wailing “Prima-Style” like its 2014.
Originally formed in 2007, Louis Prima Jr. and the Witnesses began to hit full stride at their breakout performance at the 2010 New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. They’ve toured from Los Angeles to Sicily and shared the stage with everyone from Aretha Franklin to Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. Impatiently waiting to show the world what mayhem could come from the collective talents and years of diverse musical experience that make up the whole of its members. If you’ve seen them in concert, you’ll know a bit about what to expect from the musical minds of the Witnesses. As energetic and over-the-top as their live shows, BLOW continues the ever-changing musical journey that Prima Sr. began in the 30’s.
Building off of the success of their critically acclaimed debut CD Return of the Wildest!, Prima and the Witnesses immersed themselves in writing original music for the first time together and headed into the studio with co-producer and Warrior Records C.E.O. Jim Ervin. Recorded at Capitol Records in Studio B, where Prima Sr. recorded his hits of the 50’s and 60’s, the seriousness of this music is masked only by the obvious fun that was had making it. The outcome is a host of superb innovative new material as eclectic and unique as each member of this powerhouse band, plus revved-up versions of Adam Ant’s Goody Two Shoes and Louis Prima Sr.’s Robin Hood. Prima also sneaks in a vocal and trumpet duet with his father on That’s My Home, utilizing Sr.’s original vocal/trumpet solo from the 1959 recording combined with a new music track created by LP Jr. and the Witnesses. The Louis Armstrong cover bridges the gap between family generations as it rises into a heartfelt and hypnotic tribute to his father and is a loving homage to the city they both adore. But it’s on songs like first single Go Let’s Go, the musical party I Just Wanna Have Fun and the soulfully explosive Fame And Glory that the band’s uniqueness shines through. The result of blending the skills of these musicians is a blistering assault on your senses that will make you shout out loud and get up and move.
Of course Prima has a lot to live up to–sharing a name with his celebrated father¬¬–but a new legend is being born, and it’s about to BLOW you away.
On Saturday, June 28th at 2:30pm, Hope on a String is hosting a one-of-a-kind Benefit Ride at SoulCycle Brentwood. The class will feature music composed from their students living in Haiti.
Hope on a String is a non-profit, grassroots organization based in Haiti that believes through participation in music we can help build strong communities.
Tickets to the event are sold at cycle4hoas.eventbrite.com
With a ticket purchase, you will receive a $30 SoulCycle class, shoe rental, water and a post-ride reception hosted by Pinkberry and Pressed Juicery. A portion of your ticket will be tax deductible.

THREE TIMES BAD DEBUT ALBUM AMERICAN SOJOURN Out May 17th
THREE TIMES BAD, “a hot new San Francisco string band” (Hood River News), is releasing its debut CD, American Sojourn, on May 17th. I hope you’ll consider spreading the word on the “incredible musicianship” (Victory Swig) of this “dirty American roots” (The Register-Guard) combo that’s “catchy as hell” (Not About Religion) and kin to the Devil Makes Three and Old Crow Medicine Show while carving out a big sound all its own.
Think: “Epic moustaches and bent bluegrass” (The Source Weekly), backwoods blues, outlaw country, hillbilly swing, Appalachian rags, Gypsy jazz, old-time gospel, murder ballads, honkytonk, folk songs, and hot singalongs. The group includes band leader Jesus Angel Garcia (acoustic guitar, banjo, lead vox), Thomas Romero (mandolin, backup vox), Megan McDevitt (upright bass, backup vox), and Jean-Pierre Duboucheron (fiddle, backup vox). This regional touring ensemble has performed all over California and the PacNW, including multiple appearances at the Ink n Iron Festival in Long Beach and the Humboldt Hills Hoedown.

Exciting solo show coming up at Project Gallery in Hollywood!
Street artist HUEMAN is taking it back to the gallery walls in a new solo exhibit opening June 5, 2014 at Project Gallery. “Between the Lines,” will showcase more than 12 new pieces on canvas and wood until July 20. The solo show is a play on the artist’s signature style as well as the theme of her new collection of work. A freestyler to the core, HUEMAN has been perfecting a technique of creating free-flowing abstract shapes, finding faces within their framework and then introducing sharp lines to create structure and dimension.
HUEMAN says, “When people look at art, sometimes they look for things that may or may not be there. With [Between the Lines] I want to talk about human behavior and the tendency to place meaning and significance in what we see. I want to examine the not-so obvious: subtexts, innuendos, and the things that go unsaid. I want viewers to literally read between the lines.”
Project Gallery is located at 1553 N. Cahuenga Blvd. Hollywood, CA 90028.

LOS ANGELES STREET ARTIST LEBA TURNS GOLD
￼OPENING RECEPTION, MAY 17, 2014 7-11pm at GOLD HAUS GALLERY
GOLD HAUS GALLERY PRESENTS LEBA’S SHOW, VISIONS
Leba is one of the most talented artists in Los Angeles.
The body of he work created for his upcoming solo show is gilded proof. “Visions” is a breathtaking exhibition featuring new works by Leba.
Gold Haus Gallery//5713 N. Figueroa Street, Highland Park, CA email@example.com//323-577-97799
With true skill and a true heart, Leba’s stage was already set. Then, enter;
Gustav Klimt. Harry Clark. Telopa Treloky. Vincent Van Gogh.
Four great artists whom Leba admires and respects. With great ambition, he set out to combine each of their styles, adding elements of Christian mysticism to create a unique voice for this very special show. Leba did more than that. He went on to paint an epic body of work, in which an almost dream-like world was created.
With perfect balance, Leba’s body of work evokes the familiar while protecting the unknown. Comprised of paintings both rich in mystery and full of beauty, the works to be exhibited possess a rare, almost human ability to welcome us to step closer and go beyond the paint and wood and canvas. With encouragement, they invite us to explore freely, to become a part of their world which exists only in this fabricated dimension – where trouble, hurt, and confusion are greeted with elegance and grace.
“Painting is the search for truth. Not what your mind sees or what your eye thinks it sees, but what’s really there.” Leba
Such truths are exposed in this solid exhibition. Leba’s “Visions” is a gift allowing us to see what’s really there. 24K gold leaf is used heavily throughout Leba’s gorgeous show. Though visually delicate, his use of gold screams with an uncanny boldness, highlighting strength in what may be seen as frailty, serving not only as a through line, but also as a reminder, that gold is a feeling. Experiencing “Visions” will make you feel like gold.
Gold Haus Gallery Art lives here.
Gold Haus Gallery is a unique art space in Highland Park, California. Featuring both the selected works from the private collection of Charlie Gold for display as well as up-and-coming and established artists’ works available for purchase. Gold Haus Gallery is where you will find art you can take home.

Name of Event: Freedom Socialist Party National Convention
When: May 24-26 (public days)
Where: (AFSCME) District Council 36 Building, 3rd Floor, 514 Shatto Pl, Los Angeles, California 90020.
What: The weather may be balmy in sunny Los Angeles, but the political climate is anything but.
Police are targeting immigrants, unionists, and radicals; 58,000 people are homeless, 30 percent of them women; the right wing is in a frenzy over LGBT rights; and the doors of education are closed to many young people of color, while the doors of the prison-industrial complex are wide open. At the same time, LA is a national flashpoint for struggles against injustices like these.
That makes LA the perfect place for the revolutionary feminist Freedom Socialist Party (FSP) to convene over the Memorial Day weekend, May 24-27. The convention will be an opportunity for FSP members and friends to discuss how best to tackle the problems of the day, from the calamitous effects of the Great Recession on workers and the poor to the challenge of saving the planet from the fossil fuel ogres.

Founded in 2003 by Chuck Lindo (ex Actionslacks, Jumbo Shrimp, The Nukes) in San Francisco, The American Professionals (a.k.a.

The American Professionals (www.theamericanprofessionals.com), a San Francisco power trio whose cleverly crafted songs of hope, love, guilt and fear are matched only by their beefy power chords, hooks and harmonies have confirmed April 24 at the 3 of Clubs in Hollywood to celebrate the release of their new CD We Make It Our Business on the band run label Charlie in the Box Records.

Acclaimed Chicago quintet TRAIN COMPANY coming through L.A. to start 2014
“It’s clear that Train Company is more than a blues band. The group crafts a diverse, multi-layered sound with discernable traces of jazz, pop and even orchestral arrangements, while effortlessly switching between anthemic rock vocals and airy, indie-rock introspection.” – NPR
If it’s true that a picture paints a thousand words, then the cover of Train Company’s nationally-acclaimed, self-released 2012 album The Remains of an Effort symbolizes the speedy growth these young but accomplished musicians have had over just a few short years. Gigantic cowbells are harvested from an otherwise baron landscape, and though the band has admirably made major progress and connections through consistent, nose-to-the-grindstone performing, no one may have been able to predict what a game-changer Remains has become: This is Chicago quintet is on the cusp of truly taking over.
Though vocalist/guitarist John Zozzaro, bassist Mike DeWitte and drummer Rob Lejman grinded out hardcore punk/metal together in in the mid-2000’s, Zozzaro eventually moved to New York to approach music from another angle. “While I was out there, I had plenty of time to record daily and I did so for quite some time,” he says. “I took myself away completely from all of the harder music I had been playing and was able to start a new musical endeavor. When I moved back, my appreciation for not-so-hard music had grown out of control and I had a few songs written I wanted to run past Mike and Rob. With (horn player) Mark (Alletag) and (keyboardist) Samuel (Wyatt) added to the roster, we were able to move forward progressing as musicians and continue playing together, what ever genre we decide fits.”
2009 saw the release of the group’s self-titled debut, and shortly thereafter, they were playing buzzworthy unofficial shows at South By Southwest, as well as were asked to open a sold-out Blues Traveler show at Chicago’s renowned House of Blues. Next came an EP titled Change, recorded live to tape in one day, and more high-profile opening slots, for the likes of Counting Crows and Blind Melon. Remains – as well as the new material the band is currently preparing for a 2014 release – are the sounds of a band fully realizing every one of their strengths and playing to their full potential. Their songs are the stuff of road veterans; music you’d expect from guys with over thirty years in the business, being played by guys not yet old enough to have witnessed those same decades. Here’s a band whose sound is made of several diverse, stellar record collections shaking hands and playing nice, as jazz, blues, rock and even elements of country and modern pop weave in and out of each other as true voices, not just to appeal to everyone. Says Lejman, “Whenever we’re seeing an idea or song through, we don’t try to fit a style or era, we just try to write a song that we think sounds good… We’re under the firm belief that if you don’t know where you came from, you don’t know where you’re going. Even with that said, we don’t hold any allegiance to any particular genre or style. We’re still in it to make something new for ourselves. After four years together, we are starting to understand each other better as musicians and the style limitations are fading away.”
Perhaps it’s that connection – as well as the band’s nose-to-the-grindstone work ethic, which also scored them a licensing deal with Starbucks – that led to an official sponsorship from electronic giant JVC, which allowed the band to tour more extensively and capture all their road adventures in the process. Says Lejman, “We’re really excited to be working with JVC because they have unique products we can put to use, such as the Adixxion action camera and the live streaming LS2’s. Both allow us to connect with fans in a whole new way. Sam has even taken to smashing one of the cameras onto the keys of his piano lately because it is shock proof and gets a gnarly video effect. We’ve only just started unlocking the possibilities of these cameras for live concert use, but we’re already seeing the unique ways we can use them. When JVC approached us to help develop the product and test its possibilities, we had no idea how much fun it would be and how much curiosity it would cause amongst our fans, follow bands, and even the venues and sound guys. We feel very lucky that JVC chose our band for this project. They’re one of the oldest, if not the oldest, audio/video company in the world. They have a ton of experience in building the best video cameras and that is exactly what we have dreamed of using since we started recording our live shows.” The band recently used the equipment to film a performance inside Third Man’s recording booth in Nashville – soon to be posted online – and have been raffling off JVC audio and video equipment off at their shows.

YOUNG CREATURES HOLIDAY BENEFIT SHOW!
DECEMBER 7TH at EL CID
FREE ADMISSION WITH DONATION OF NEW TOY
El Cid presents “A Very Young Creetch-mas,” featuring
and special guests:
THE BROTHERS ZMED
Saturday, December 7th at 9pm
El Cid, 4212 W. Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles CA 90029
Silver Lake, CA – “Walking in a winter wonderland” may be the last thing you’ll be doing in southern California this holiday season, but a group of Los Angeles musicians are reminding us of what truly makes Christmas special – the spirit of giving.
YOUNG CREATURES have confirmed a benefit show on Saturday, December 7th at Silver Lake rock hub El Cid. “We want to get people together for a really fun night in an atmosphere of charity,” says Mike Post, singer/guitarist of Young Creatures. “We love El Cid and the whole east side music community, so this is kind of our small way of trying to give back.”
The venue, which charges $5 admission, has generously agreed to waive the door for guests who donate a new, unwrapped toy to benefit the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles’ annual drive. “I work with these amazing kids every day,” says Michael Escalante, drummer of Young Creatures and employee of the CHLA Department of Radiology. “These donations are really special for kids undergoing difficult treatments during the holidays.”
The show will feature some of LA’s most exciting up-and-coming acts. The BROTHERS ZMED have signed on to support; LA music-goers will remember the hugely successful Satellite residency of their electric incarnation, THE JANKS. Also joining are THE ALTERNATES, fronted by KCSN favorite SPENCER LIVINGSTON. Young Creatures themselves created a buzz in the LA blogosphere with their most recent EP, Habitats, which won exposure in a multitude of outlets.
Doors will open at 9:00pm, with the option to pay a $5 cover charge in lieu of donation. Guests will be able to hit two birds with one stone, enjoying a great night of phenomenal live music while doing their good deed for the holiday season.
How do you express yourself? For unsigned artist and Berklee College of Music alumni, Marga Lane, expression comes in the form of songwriting. It’s how she’s defined her life…in music. Her self-released EP, “Expressions” has infectious beats and expressive vocals that will leave you addicted and wanting more. She is hitting the music scene with a fresh new sound that will awaken your senses and move your soul.
Marga Lane, a trained vocalist and classical pianist has always been known more for her heartfelt, melodic ballads, but with “Expressions” she invites the listeners with her on a musical journey. Collaborating with the right producers has allowed her to broaden her musical horizons expanding more into the world of urban-pop. Her songwriting skills have improved like fine wine. Marga Lane has stepped up her game, proving she is as versatile and as distinctive as they come. Marga Lane’s smooth style and her wealth of musicality make her such a fine artist. Musical icons including Adele, Beyonce, Rihanna, and Alicia Keys have influenced Marga Lane and it shows with every song on this EP.
From the club thumping, bass filled sounds of “Pain Killa” and “Boys” to the insightful, metaphoric lyrics of “Finish Line” and “Aftershocks,” “Expressions” has something for everyone. Marga Lane’s powerful voice and soulful style will have you captivated from her very first note.
“I love to create songs that people can relate to. Those feel good songs that you can’t help but identify with and sing along to.” ~ Marga Lane
Marga Lane’s EP, “Expressions” was reviewed and featured in the July, 2013 issue of Young Celebrity News and her song, “Finish Line” won the “dump it or thump it” contest on Planet Radio Network four weeks in a row. If you frequent clubs in the Hollywood area, including The Sayers Club and Hyde, you can hear Marga Lane’s “Boys” pumping through the speakers.

Check out this LA Grunge Punk Noir band Crime Rock!
Whoever said punk is dead, is dead wrong. And there’s a quartet of brothers out to prove that punk, heavily influenced by rock ‘n’ roll, is very much alive. Deemed by Rolling Stone Magazine as a band to watch in 2013, The So So Glos are bringing their loud, yet charming, sound all the way from Brooklyn to the USC campus. KXSC Radio, USC’s official independent student-run radio station, is proud to host these adventurous souls who are a bit “rough around the edges.” They’ve grown from playing music together as kids to playing in self-created spaces that have earned them a decent following in New York City. Join KXSC and The So So Glos for a night of catchy, adrenaline-inducing songs that will cause audiences to tear apart their Doc Martens on the dance floor.
The So So Glos
“Clever without being cheeky, sincere without being preachy, self-aware but never too in on their own joke.”
“We wanna make love to your ear pussies.”

AUSTRALIA’S SHELLEY SEGAL SET TO RETURN

First and foremost, I hope you’re having a nice day.
I would love to offer up a sneak peak of, The Visitors new EP for your listening and or posting pleasure. It’s Indie/Indie Pop I would say?

We’re a friendly and seasoned little group of NY/LA musicians (currently in LA) from a plethora of great (and some well known: Drummer currently touring with Sky Ferierra) acts who’ve come together because we laugh a lot and like to play cool tunes.
We’ve just posted a sneak peak of the EP on soundcloud. It’s official release is Dec 1, but we’re happy to share it with you and your readers. Also happy to give you in any format and allow your audience to download the first two singles for free, prerelease.

Either way, feel free to share.
Many thanks. Hope you enjoy and hope to speak with you soon!
Tom McNalley Trio
Tuesdays in November 8-11 p.m.
Tapas Tuesday Jazz Nights at El Cid
Tapas and Drink Specials All Night
El Cid continues its Tapas Tuesday Jazz Nights in November with the Tom McNalley Trio performing live every Tuesday from 8-11 p.m. in November. Guitarist Tom McNalley brings a new trio performing new original music featuring Jarrad Lander, electric bass and Matt Baker, drums, bringing fiery blues energy to jazz imagination.
Tapas Tuesday Jazz Nights: $5.00 cover charge; no minimum; $5 tapas and sangria specials; an extensive tapas menu and full bar with exclusive artisan cocktail creations. El Cid is located at 4212 West Sunset Blvd., Silver Lake 90029. There is ample street parking and valet parking is available. For more information please visit http://www.ElCidLA.com or call 323.668.0318. El Cid is also available for Holiday parties and large groups.
Guitarist Tom McNalley has been a mainstay on the Los Angeles music scene, having worked with everyone from Nels Cline to Ornette Coleman who said of Tom “Your like the best of Pat Metheney and Blood Ulmer.” His new trio brings the blues and rock edge to the forefront on their new release “Eyes Above Water”. Influences of early John McLaughlin and John Abercrombie are still there (and of course the aforementioned Cline), but now with more Hendrix and even Tom Morello! McNalley’s extensive foray into Haitian music also show up, and with the fearless rhythm section of Matt Baker (drums) and Jarrad Lander (electric bass), expect no stone to be unturned!
Los Angeles native Bassist Jarrad Wade Lander has played with The Faceless, Symphonic Circles, Carlotta as well as many other Los Angeles based and national artists. Jarrad recently performed with electro/pop group Maximum Hedrum opening for the Yeah Yeah Yeah’s headlining tour. Drummer/ producer Matt Baker has been immersed in the Los Angeles scene since the age of 15; studied drumset performance and music theory at LAMA; and literally lives in a recording studio and working on launching his own label “Moment Music.”
El Cid, the venerable bar/restaurant/nightclub, steeped in Los Angeles history, located in Los Angeles’ Silver Lake Sunset Junction neighborhood is celebrating its 50th year as the premiere venue for Flamenco Dinner Shows on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings. The Sunday Flamenco dinner shows offer authentic Paella specially prepared outdoors on the patio, as well as a popular spot for enjoying Brunch, Tapas on the outdoor Patio, Daily Happy Hour from 4-8 p.m., eclectic range of nightlife, and the new and exciting Honky Tonk Hacienda Thursdays from 8-11 p.m. with live music of Outlaw Country, Roots, and Americana.
We’ve heard it so often: people in this town rarely make plans or RSVP anymore. Why? Because there’s too much awesome stuff going on at any given time, that no one can commit in advance. It would appear that everyone in southern California suffers from a medical condition jeopardizing social lives across the board: FOMO. (‘Fear of Missing Out’, to the layperson.) This disease has been prominent in most Los Angeles cities for years, and has recently began impacting the safety of our beloved South Bay bubble. FOMO is estimated to be most rampant during the holiday season, especially on the biggest night of the year: New Years Eve. NYE FOMO is the worst kind there is. (It’s actually proven to be fatal in some subsections of Malibu.) The stress of choosing ONE PARTY, when there are SO MANY OPTIONS, can bring upon fits of anxiety that no normal human being can withstand.
After years of research and development, Saint Rocke possesses the only known cure for NYE FOMO. The prescription? A bitchin’ New Years Eve Show with The English Beat.(Dave Wakeling in all his glory: Hit. After hit. After hit.) High-energy live music and a super-fun dance party. Sound perfect? Wait. There’s more. The added bonus of this particular NYE show? Each ticket includes OPEN BAR. That’s one price for the whole night, Charlie. No worrying about racking up a huge tab and spending January’s rent money on booze. (Been there. Drank that.) Go ahead and grab a round for 10 of your closest friends. See a cutie at the bar? Send over a top-shelf, without doing the math in your head. You want VIP options, too? Hang-sies with the band? Done and done, my good friend. Because nothing beats NYE FOMO like knowing you’re at the coolest show in town.
Grab NYE TIX (NOW). http://www.saintrocke.com.

Matthew Dear and Droog Join Line-Up for the TRANSMIT underground music festival in Downtown Los Angeles
The TanZ Group has announced that Matthew Dear and special guests Droog will perform at TRANSMIT – the underground electronic music festival in Downtown LA happening during Columbus Day weekend on Saturday, October 10, 2015 from 12PM to 10PM at the Los Angeles Center Studios. Matthew Dear, co-founder of celebrated electronic music label, Ghostly International, was the first international DJ resident at Avalon-Hollywood when TanZ Group’s Garrett Chau and Craig Edwards ran the venue’s promotions in 2007. Special guests Droog, creators of LA-based imprint Culprit, were Avalon’s first local residents during this same time. Matthew Dear and Droog join the line-up alongside main stage performances by Benoit & Sergio, No Regular Play, Wankelmut, Ricoshei and HOJ. Transmit’s Outdoor Terrace will be exclusively curated by the Desert Hearts crew’s only regional October event and will feature performances by Mikey Lion, Lee Reynolds, Marbs, Deep Jesus and Pork Chop.

The Transmit festival is founded, developed, and inspired by like-minded individuals who have forged the path to develop LA’s underground electronic music scene for nearly a decade. TRANSMIT celebrates the history of the underground community; supports present day pioneers; and fosters its future talent.
TRANSMIT will also feature a curated series of live art installations including camouflage body painting against the downtown LA urban landscape by artist Trina Merry; on site body art by tattoo artists Kyle Mahathey and Cleen Rock One of Chrome Gypsy Tattoo, Alex Delgado and Geo Artworks; and live mural painting by emerging artist Chris Krohn.
