In honor of their free show tonight in Santa Monica for the Twilight Concert Series, I wanted to share a song with you from the band PAPA. These guys rocked my face off back in December along with Wardell & Moses Sumney at the El Rey.
If you guys are looking for something to do tonight, head out to the Santa Monica pier at sun down and catch PAPA along with LA natives, Cayucas.
One of my favorite things to do with my friends in the summer is go to the Santa Monica Twilight Concert Series. They’re completely free & the lineup is always great.
Where: Santa Monica Pier
When: 7-10pm Every Thursday in July-early Sept
Who’s Playing: Check out the lineup on the website; this week is Cayucas & PAPA who are both amazing live.
Grab some food & friends then head to the beach after work on a Thursday. Then relax. Enjoy the sea breeze & the great music. Remember that people travel across the globe to visit where you’re sitting. And be thankful that you live in one of the coolest cities in the world.
Since I’m constantly in my car, I always appreciate good driving music. And since it’s Friday, I thought y’all could use a soundtrack for all your fun plans. This band was shared with me by my good friend Travis Button on one of his mix tapes and I haven’t been able to stop listening to their stuff.
Who’s Playing: The Districts
Favorite Track: Long Distance
This weekend I’ll be checking out the Topanga Film Festival to see some cool documentaries & continuing my bedroom makeover I started last week. I’m terrible at interior design related things but there’s something very satisfying about making your home feel more like home.
Have a good weekend everyone!
In honor of the beautiful super moon that’s been lighting our summer nights the last few days, here’s a beautiful song by one of my favorite local LA artists, Moses Sumney, called Man on the Moon.
If you ever get a chance to see Moses Sumney live, please do. I’ve been lucky enough to see him live three times and he has been one of my favorite artists over the last year. I look forward to seeing him again at Way Over Yonder in September.
One of my most favorite parts of living in Los Angeles has been the tremendous amount of great live music I have access to. With my good friend Travis Button, I have been lucky enough to see great shows nearly every week. On top of that, LA has some of the best radio programs around. Two of my favorites are KCRW & KCSN. Without them, I don’t think I could survive my morning commute. With all this great music surrounding me, it is my duty to share some of these great bands with you all. First up is a band I saw recently, St. Paul & the Broken Bones. These guys brought that Alabama soul and some great dance moves to the El Rey a few weeks ago. If you like what you hear, please check out the rest of their bandcamp & support these artists.
