I can’t think of a better way to celebrate my birthday than at Club Underground. And, since my birthday happens to fall on a Friday this year, that’s exactly what we’ll be doing.

With only a handful of gigs left for this year, I figured that now is a good time to post my top 10 jams for 2023.

Check out the list below and I hope to see you on the dance floor soon.Continue reading Here are My Top 10 Jams for 2023

For one baffling moment, the thought of walking the 1.2 mile stretch of Sunset Blvd. between Spacedust and Bar Henry for Echo Park Rising on Saturday afternoon sounded doable. I quickly came to my senses and vetoed that option, though, on account of it being somewhere around 90 degrees, per the weather app on my phone. Plus, the list of things I wanted to do that day was out of control. So, instead, I stuck around Bar Henry long enough to see Nolune, Micah Preite and Datamaps play fantastic sets on the sidewalk as traffic whizzed past us.Continue reading Weekend Recap: Echo Park Rising, Plus Dancing, Records and Trains
Having a hard time keeping up on L.A. music events? Yeah, same here.

Sitting on the corner of Main and Cesar Chavez is the Italian Hall, a squat, two-story brick building that dates back to 1908. In the early 20th century, it welcomed guest speakers like Emma Goldman and Ricardo and Enrique Flores Magón. During Prohibition, it hid a speakeasy. Today, it’s part of El Pueblo de Los Angeles, the historic district that include’s some of the oldest remaining buildings in the city, and is home to the Italian American Museum of Los Angeles.Continue reading Exploring Pinocchio at Italian American Museum of Los Angeles
