Like you do

MONA was back in town, playing songs from their latest album, Torches & Pitchforks.  Another solid album from these guys.  They sound amazing live, so it was great to see them again.  Besides that, perks include a cover of The Cranberries "Zombie", and we just love when they start with "Can't Take My Eyes Off You" before going into "Lean Into the Fall".  Yes.

All moments meant to pass

Against Me! - Troubadour / Los Angeles, CA - 11/18/13

It was an amazing sold out show filled with die-hard fans who were super happy to be there, with plenty of stage-divers, crowd surfers, loud sing-alongs, and sweat.  A proper punk show indeed.  Also, excited about the addition of Atom Willard and Inge Johansson.  Check them out on tour in January 2014 in the U.S.  The new album "Transgender Dysphoria Blues" is available for pre-order now.

Beat on the brat

Marky Ramone with Andrew W.K. - The Fonda Theater, Hollywood, CA 10/15/13

Sorry, I didn't really take good shots, but thought I'd share the experience with you anyway.  This was the most fun dance party I've been to.  Too much dancing for me, took days to recover.  During the encore, when he sang "What a Wonderful World" Joey version, I almost teared up.  I love the Ramones, I wish they had experienced way more love and success when they were alive, and wish they were all healthy and happy and lived longer lives.  Anyways, Andrew W.K. was entertaining and a ball of energy like always, he did a great job, and Marky Ramone just drummed away, and didn't act like a star or legend.  I adore Marky from watching Rock and Roll High School too many times.  I feel like a giddy teenager when I watch that movie.  I'm not sure how old I am.

Melody Calling

The Vaccines - Mayan Theater, Downtown Los Angeles, CA - 9/22/13

I love going to the Mayan Theater because it's gorgeous and historic.  Always reminds me of Rock and Roll High School!!!!!  And spent a lot of my youth in Downtown L.A.  Good show, with epic disco ball during the encore.  We bought the Mountain Manor x Vaccines t-shirt, that came with a cute canvas pouch.  It feels just like yesterday I heard their song on NME Radio and took me months to figure out who it was by, and then, was lucky enough to see them at Spaceland.  I'm very happy with how much they've grown and evolved, and can't wait to see much more from them.
