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 …

Eels Cover Elvis’ “Can’t Help Falling In Love”

Eels by Larry Hirshowitz

Eels main man Mark Oliver Everett mostly lives in a muted space.
While he can come across as solemn if you’re being generous, he does have a sharp wit and the sort of self-deprecating humor that makes you think he’s doing it for the laughs.
Either way you slice it, he’s definitely not the kind of guy to wear salmon colored J.Crews, half rolled up the …

Guest contributor Jeff Miller is a giant Weird Al fan and the only person who could write this post. Pictured above with Al at KCRW
I can’t recall a time in my life when I wasn’t a fan of Weird Al Yankovic — I’m pretty sure there’s a video somewhere of a 5-year-old me singing “Eat It” and I’m one of about 10 people who …

Four Songs You Should Listen to Right Now: Bahamas, Alvvays, Hollie Cook, The New Pornographers

Posted July 16, 2014 by | 0 Comments | 1,745 views]

Bahamas – “Stronger Than That”
I’ll be honest. It took me a couple listens to get into the new Bahamas album.
But once I did, I fell for it hard. There’s always something more rewarding about those albums that require a closer listen, a bit more attention and focus to make their full impact. In 2014, focus is ever harder to come by so the reward …

Reggae Night XIII at the Hollywood Bowl with Jimmy Cliff THIS Sunday

jimmy crop LH

I started listening to reggae music on my local college radio station when I was in high school without really knowing what it was.
For me, it was exotic, a place I wanted to find out about, welcoming but it felt out of reach, particularly since college radio DJ’s have a way of playing amazing music but not ever telling you much about it.
It was …

Illya Kuryaki and the Valderramas @ Celebrate Brooklyn

(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.
The Conference floor looks a lot different than yesterday.  A cacophony of hearty greetings and on-the-fly interviews, packed with people, and a challenge to move …

The Quinceañera!
A coming of age in Latin American culture, no less so for the Latin Alternative Music Conference, which is celebrating 15 years since it’s inception. The cultural parallels beg for a shout-out and are sprinkled throughout as Raul and I witnessed the installations of mannequins adorned with Quinceañera dresses before the conference opened to the public.
It’s also a recognition of 15 years since …
