The Melvins at the Casbah

The Melvins kicked off their latest tour with their sold out show at the Casbah on 4/26. This, behind the release of their new album “Pinkus Abortion Technician”. What was special about their show this time around? Well their lineup consisted of 2 bass players, Jeff Pinkus to Buzz’s right and Steven McDonald to his right. So sandwiched in between those 2 and in front of Dale’s drumming we got a one of a kind show.

One of the topics of conversation that came up last night after their amazing show is this.
Who will take the Melvins place when they’re gone?
Who is that one band that can live up to the task of performing every year thunderous sets?
Be a beloved and cult band at the same time.
Be able to inspire and be admired by other musicians and still produce an amazing body of work.
There are so many more qualities that can be added to them.

Many more ways of paying tribute with words or pictures, but the best thing you can do right now is go out and see them play live.

Who knows if there will be another band in our lifetime that can do what the Melvins have done for 35 years so far, and counting.

Long live the Melvins.

The Distillers at the Casbah

The Distillers played the world famous Casbah, San Diego, CA, on 4/25/18. Their kickoff show did not disappoint, they played through a loud and blistering 18 song set that left everyone in the sold out audience satisfied, the venue was packed, hot and full of excitement, many fans drove from L.A. to see the band’s first show in 14 years.

They only have 7 other dates announced so far:

04/27 – Santa Ana, CA @ The Observatory
04/28 – Phoenix, AZ @ Crescent Ballroom
04/28 – El Paso, TX @ Lowbrow Palace
05/01 – Austin, TX @ The Mohawk
05/02 – Dallas, TX @ The Curtain Club
05/04-6 – Atlanta, GA @ Shaky Knees Festival
5/4 – Atlanta, GA @ Masquerade

The band has not confirmed other performances as of yet. It was still a great welcome back to a stage for The Distillers. Here’s to hoping that they stay around for a little while more.

King Krule at the Observatory North Park

King Krule played the Observatory in North Park on April 20th. This was one of the dates scheduled in between the Coachella weekends. And the Terrible Ivan Marshall came out swinging to his sold out show.

The crowd response was amazing, they were either moshing or singing the songs right with King Krule. His stage presence felt huge and his voice could fill the theatre without a problem. One thing is clear, no one is making music like him out there right now. His blend of music works great for him and his band and that is why he has earned fans across different genres.

This is the setlist for the show:

Has This Hit? / Ceiling / Dum Surfer / A Lizard State / The Locomotive / Cadet Limbo / Cementality / Biscuit Town / The Cadet Leaps / Logos / Rock Bottom / Little Wild / Midnight 01 (Deep Sea Diver) / Emergency Blimp / (A Slide In) New Drugs / Badoom The Ooz / iPhone (My) X / Half Man Half Shark / Baby Blue / Easy Easy

Head Wound City live at the Echoplex

This happened almost 3 years ago, July 26, 2015 at the Echoplex, to say the least it was an amazing show, Head Wound City was presenting their album, “A new wave of violence” produced by Ross Robinson.
We were lucky to attend the show with our two daughters, Zoe (10) and Ofelia (3 months, this was her first concert, she stayed backstage with Dad and slept during the whole set), Zoe was awake standing side stage, amazed by the amount of energy and loud sounds her friends were making.
We can only say thank you to Cody, Gabe, Jordan, Justin, Nick for making more music and we hope to see you perform together again.

Daniel Rossen – Deerslayer

In “Deerslayer”, the piano makes the song sound a little ‘Beatlesque’ but the guitar, the arrangements and Daniel Rossen’s distinctive-beautiful voice makes it darker, sinister, we can imagine this song being part of the soundtrack of a film.
It’s the type of songwriting/composing we can’t have enough of.

“Deerslayer” will be released on April 21 as part of Record Store Day, it includes a B-side, a cover of ‘You’re Crossing a River’, originally released by Fred Nicolaus (Department of Eagles) for his Golden Suits project.

“Announcing a special release this Spring. Deerslayer is a song from recent times that hasn’t found a proper home. Though it doesn’t quite fit in with other tunes I’m working on now, I’d like to put it out into the world.

If you happened upon an old version of this tune that was floating around my semi-defunct 20th century style website, this new version is rounded out with horns and extra instrumention.

You’re Crossing A River is one of my favorite recent tunes of my old DoE bandmate Fred Nicolaus, and I had a good time making this version. Psyched to be able to give it a physical release as well.

And anyway, it feels like it’s time I put something out. Damn it.

In the near future (can’t commit to a timescale more specific than that) I will try to finish the rest of the jumble of songs and fragments that I’ve been mulling over, throwing out, retrieving from the trash, reworking, and starting over for the last 5 years and hopefully come back with an actual album length release…

thanks for listening

cheers

Daniel”
