Day 3 is always chock-full of panels and artist interviews in the day with almost no respite before the music begins early evening, starting at the acoustic showcase at SoHo’s world-famous SOB’s and then the LAMC showcase at The Gramercy Theatre, presentation of the Discovery award and music until the wee hours of the morning.
The acoustic showcase is a great opportunity to strip any …

(Read about Day 1 here)

I gotta say the weather in NYC is just fine this year. The least oppressive New York summer of any LAMC we’ve been to.  The Big Apple’s fine when it doesn’t feel like a Baked Pie.

Angel Olsen…I’d swim across two oceans just to play music with her.
Lyrical content, abstract chord structures…I love it.
