Over The Weekend: Jamie Lidell at the El Rey Theater

In a city as susceptible to breathless hype as LA can sometimes be, it's hard to imagine a show not being packed. When was the last gig where the guest list line didn't stretch around the corner, while lesser punters pay top-dollar on Craigslist to see (and be seen) at......

Glow Riders

It’s 10:30 on a Saturday night at Hollywood’s recently reopened Palladium concert venue. The headliner for the night is techno sensation Deadmau5, whose rodent-headed antics have sold out the venue weeks before doors ever opened.

Danger Dude Without Borders

When Jeff Antebi, the maverick multitasker behind the Waxploitation record label and management company, decided he fancied photography, he didn’t just set up a Flickr page and call it a day. He turned his hustle on full blast and began sending to everyone he thought might want to see them......
