Okay here we go with a week full of music, and when I say full I mean PACKED. Like I mentioned in the Monday post for shows, lots of Coachella acts are hanging around the LA area until next weekend starts. This is your chance to catch them! All available to listen to on Spotify.
4.15 – TUESDAY (HUGE night for Coachella acts and music in general – Already overwhelmed)
CHVRCHES – The Majestic Ventura Theater, Ventura, CA – $20-23 TICKETS HERE – Buy these quick. They’re Ponoma show for tonight sold out fast. Had the pleasure of seeing them at Coachella whilst wandering and so glad I did. One of the best I saw over the weekend.
Broken Bells – Fonda Theater – $39 – 138 TICKETS HERE – BROKEN BELLS!! Another great act I saw over the weekend. This rock/fuck band will have your head bobbing up and down. Famous for their song, “The Ghost Inside” and many more. Also on the bill is Au Revoir Simone.
Bonobo – The Glass House, Pomona – $23 TICKETS HERE – Bonobo I missed but catch him on Spotify! He’s got an eclectic EDM style that’s great to groove to.
Ellie Goulding – The Fox Theater, Pomona – $89 – 130 TICKETS HERE – This rock star tore up the Coachella main stage this weekend. Famous for her hit song Starry Eyes, this is sure to be a good show.
Rudimental – Sound Nightclub – Starting at $10 TICKETS HERE – Unexpectedly saw this incredible band perform this weekend in Indio. I’d never heard of them but a friend said we should stay since we had no acts to see for the next hour. This band is a wonderful mix of raggae, EDM and Ska. You’ll be jumping a lot, so stretch those calves before you go.
**Chrome Sparks – Bootleg Bar – $15 Advance TICKETS HERE – A new favorite of mine. Listened to “Marijuana” and immediately fell in love with this alienesque type music. Very groovy and chill. I’m dying to see this live.
Birds of Tokyo – Bootleg HIFI – Advance tickets are sold out but get there early and you may get a chance to get in! Famous for their song, “This Fire” I’m positive this show will undoubtedly be fire.
4.16 – WEDNESDAY (another big night. Try to keep up)
**Nosaj Thing – The Standard Downtown – FREE! Info HERE – This DJ is known for the visuals at his shows and his experimental way with AKAI beat pads. Can’t wait to catch this guy.
HAIM – Fox Theater – $27 – 35 TICKETS HERE – If you haven’t heard of this group of girls, you’re ears are closed. So much hype recently over the LA based band. I missed their show at Coachella (OOPS) but they’ve got a great, fun sound and their voices remind me of an 80’s pop group. COOL.
Cobalt Cranes – $10 – Bootleg Bar TICKETS HERE – I love their grunge rock style. If I wasn’t going to Nosaj thing, I would most definitely be here. I imagine them to be fantastic live.
DIDDY – The W Hotel, Hollywood – $260 – 320 (YOWZA) TICKETS HERE – Do I need to say anything?
MGMT – Orpheum Theater – $45+ TICKETS HERE – Got an Electric Feel? Boom, here you go. Regrettably could not make it to MGMT this weekend but heard them from afar. It was amazing.
Mobb Deep – House of Blues Sunset Strip – $32.50 TICKETS HERE – Old school hip hop at it’s finest. Do it.
4.17 – THURSDAY (almost there)
Mogwai and Factory Floor – El Rey – $25 TICKETS HERE – Mogwai was a pleasure at Coachella. Just music, no singing. It was a cool and beautiful set I randomly popped into with a friend. Factory Floor is an amazing mix of disco and EDM. Electronic noises that’ll make you move your body.
Netsky Live! – The Mayan – $30 – 40 TICKETS HERE or win tickets via The LA Blog here! – Netsky live was incredible at Coachella. It was my last act of the entire weekend and so glad it ended on a good note. You’ve never heard anything like this. I recommend going.
City and Colour – Fox Theater – SOLD OUT 😦 – Oh dear, this voice! Matched with the beautiful acoustic guitar strumming, it’s like magic. Check out “Comin Home” and more on Spotify if you were not able to snag ticket. He gives me the chills in the best way.
Flatbush Zombies and ASAP Ferg – No tickets available at this time but will keep you updated – This show will be ratchet fun madness. I caught ASAP Ferg for a bit this weekend. All I can say is ELBOWS UP.
4.18 – FRIDAY
The Chainsmokers – Create Nightclub Presents “Noize Fridays” – $40+ TICKETS HERE – “But first, let me take a selfie”
4.19 – SATURDAY
**BROKECHELLA – DTLA – $10-27 INFO HERE – I posted about this with a handful of other California music festivals to hit this year. I will be there with a couple of friends for the day long fest and am super excited. Fresh from Coachella, I’m ready for more.
Cazzette – Avalon – $30 TICKETS HERE – I caught Cazzette at this fine venue about a year ago and had the most fun. They are most famous for they’re party perfect hit “Beam Me Up”.
