art by skye schoenhoeft In March of 2019, I made a playlist with new music I found that month. It wasn’t curated, it wasn’t ordered, it was just songs I liked, in the arrangement I found them in. No matter what has happened, I have stitched something together to remember each month since.  Often, looking […]

My first and prevailing predominant thought over the course of the night: this venue is way too cool for me.

The cafe’s composition works perfectly for a low-key concert with a distinct separation of space between the performance and eating area, each with […]

Junior year of high school, I was driving around with my best friend, depleting both the gas tank and our day. Pulling into the In-N-Out, they turned to me and said, “I found this song—let me just play it.” Innocently, I shrugged.  The speaker muttered “My face is the front of shop,” stirring the air […]

Rina Sawayama @ The Hollywood Palladium [11/23/22]  “Rina is an iconoclast that is reshaping the concept of a ‘popstar’ in her own image.” It is the day before Thanksgiving, and everyone and their mother has gathered to give thanks to Japanese-British Royalty, the venerated Rina Sawayama. DJ Alex Chapman warms up the audience with a […]

Photos by Jackie Pierce Even blocks away, it was near impossible to miss the neon glow pouring from the blue and red letters of “The Wiltern.” Towering over all the surrounding streets, the iconic Old Hollywood style theater held a presence that almost demanded to be known – a presence further amplified by the never-ending […]

Steve Lacy @ The Greek Theatre [11/11/2022] Photos by Audrey Berry “Damn, my nipples are hard right now!” These words were spoken by one of the world’s hottest artists right now as he stood in front of the sold-out Greek Theater on Saturday night. On this brisk evening, it is Steve Lacy’s final show of […]
