Zach Deputy @ The Mint - 11/23/10

Zach Deputy is a smiling bearded one man jam band with a killer falsetto. I've never seen or heard anyone else quite like him. Watching him rock out with himself (& his super enthused hippie crowd) was a fabulous way to start my holiday week off right! I <3 this man & can't wait to see him perform again in a larger venue where I'll have a better view of him doing his thing! He's incredible!

Fields by Junip

I've always loved Jose Gonzalez's cover of Heartbeats (one of my all-time favorite songs by The Knife) but I've never listened to much of his other solo work. I guess I've just assumed it'd be a little too mellow for my taste. I now have more music homework to do because the new album Fields by Jose's band Junip is BEAUTIFUL & I am intrigued.

Fitz & The Tantrums @ El Rey Theatre - 11/17/10

After being turned down by at least 20 friends when I asked if any of them wanted to take my 2nd ticket to see Fitz & The Tantrums last night at El Rey Theatre, I assumed I was one of the few people currently in the know about this up & coming unique new artist. I also assumed there would be a relatively small crowd at the show. I was wrong on both counts.

When Kat Corbin of KROQ came out from behind the closed curtains to introduce the band (something I've never seen done at the El Rey before), the sold out crowd went CRAZY! At that moment, I realized I was FAR from being one of the only people who knew about Fitz & The Tantrums &, more importantly, I was about to witness one hell of a performance...

Nosaj Thing & Toro y Moi @ El Rey Theatre - 11/11/10

With a jam-packed, fun-filled weekend about to begin in less than an hour, I don't have time to give last night's show the proper breakdown it deserves but the bottom-line is that it was FANTASTIC. Nosaj Thing was stellar & newcomer Toro y Moi BLEW MY MIND! I was expecting to enjoy TYM but I had NO idea how talented he was. His recorded music is cool but its nothing compared to his live show. Toro y Moi is a MUST SEE. Plus, the visuals accompanying both sets were crazy awesome & I got some really neat pics (see below). The sold out crowd was enthralled...& so was I!

My car may have broken down en route to The Troubadour last night but I didn't let that stop me from catching this sweet show!

Stone Temple Pilots @ Viejas Arena SDSU- 10/26/10

Sooooooo... This is Lauren's roommate, Steph. I know nothing of blogs, but she has been kind enough to let me drop a line on one of my favorite bands. NEVER thought I would get to experience them live, but thanks to a fortunate series of events... Voila!


Crackerman!!!
This got the party started!!!!



Wicked Garden
BUUUUUUURRRRNNNN!!!! BUURRRNN!!! BURN!!! Burn your wick-ed gar-den down!
BUUUUUUURRRRNNNN!!!! BUURRRNN!!! BURN!!!
Burn your wicked garden to the ground, yeaaaaaahhhh!


Vasoline (Portion)
SO much energy here!!! Enjoy the light show, and think of it when this part of the song gets stuck in your head ;P


Still Remains
There's a bit of swaying going on here, let's just say it's in tune with the melody ;)


Big Empty
Sigh, missed the very beginning :(
They snuck it up on me, but not to worry, it still gets the job done.


Dancing Days (Hook Only)

Hey-OH! This song is badass, you only get a small clip because I was grooving to the rest of it :P If anything, it's a good highlight of Dean doing his thing. One of my favorite covers, rock on!

Please forgive the shakiness and the couple seconds missed from some of the songs.  It's my first show coverage, I was super stoked and rocking OUT! 

Thanks for watching, xoxoxo!
