I'm ashamed to admit, before last night's Allah-Las & Tashaki Miyaki show at El Rey Theatre, I had not been to El Rey (1 of my top 2 favorite indoor live music venues in LA...Troubadour is #1) in over a YEAR! The last show I attended at El Rey was Phosphorescent back on 10/1/13! I've been blowing it! :-P
I can't thank my fave hometown concert buddy, Darin, for giving me the 2nd ticket he won from KXLU 88.9 so we could hit up El Rey Theatre together last night. I was especially impressed with Tashaki Miyaki who I'd never even heard of until a few days before the show (per Darin's recommendation). They were fantastic! You can't beat a hot, female, lead vocalist who also plays drums!
And Allah-Las' grungy surfer rock sound resonates SO well live! They put on a killer show!
