Posted May 3, 2013 by | 0 Comments | 1,298 views]

This coming Friday marks the second to last First Friday at the Natural History museum of 2013.
Artists Javelin and Helado Negro are an excellent bill of kaleidoscopic loop-based artists whose music is wonderously strange and totally mesmerizing alternative pop music that’ll sound awesome in the echoey halls of LA’s most educational hot spot.
Floridian by way of Ecuador, Helado Negro is an excellent producer who’s …

gaslamp

First Fridays at the Natural History Museum are without question one of my most most favoritest events in Los Angeles.
Drinking and listening to good music in the halls surrounded by antelope, T.Rex and the elephants is one of the trippiest, best nights out you can have in the City of Angels.
Next First Friday (on Feb 1st) is no exception as the Natural History Museum …

ema_classroom2-1

Y’know how people say something is “the real deal”? I’m not really sure what that means exactly so I rarely, if ever, use the phrase.
That being said, I think that every once and awhile you see or hear it. And you know immediately.
So, I’m going to go out on a limb and publicly state that I think EMA (neé Erika M. Anderson) is the …

zola-original

David Lynch has taken on Zola Jesus and the result is a song that crawls slowly to sensual, cinematic perfection. It’s gloriously moody for a rainy day weekend.
I’ve always thought of Zola, real name Nika Roza Danilova, as a dark princess, even with her platinum blond hair. So a collaboration with Lynch, whose work tends toward the dreamy and surreal, is a match made …
