The  Concert  Blast  2012  -  Vol.  24
June 26 - July 2

  Word From The Editor

Hard to believe we're halfway through 2012 - but we are - so fire your grills up, get out your fireworks and get ready for a great Independence week coming up.  We'll be giving away some tickets to celebrate, running a few promos (see Cisco Adler at Saint Rocke) and possibly causing some SUPERGOOD fireworks to go off - so make sure you follow @supergoodmusic a bit more closely.


With this week leading up to it - we've got plenty of time to plan, and see some great music too.  Check out our targeted recommendations below, full list of concerts to the right and a batch of new music links for your aural pleasure.


Our sole giveaway this week is for Robert Walter at The Mint on get on that.




- Brandon Dorsky -



This Concert Blast week begins with a healthy serving of artists you might want to investigate - whether it be the Americana folk sounds of Infantree at their record release at The Satellite or the quietly creeper pop-esque party coming from Jhameel's guitar at On The Rox. The free indie rock party at The Central SAPC with Warships and Field Trip should be decent just like 2:54 and Widowspeak at Troubadour will be.

On hump day I like the dirty New Orleans funk sounds of Stanton Moore backing kit with Robert Walter on Hammond B3 at The Mint.   The sold out Jimmy Cliff at Troubadour might be an actually better alternative - but hey, its sold out already, plus we have free tickets to dish out for Moore and Walter!


Bass heads and dub fiends have the choice of Dub Club with Prince Allah at Echoplex or Low End Theory with Jeremiah Jae, Azizi Gibson and Open Mike Eagle - plus the regulars.  The FatRat at The Roxy should not be overlooked by those seeking a dancier set... Indie rockers get The Hundred in the Hands at Echo or The Muddy Reds over at Los Globos

Thursday the 28th L.A. gets invited by one of hottest hip-hop tours I've seen in a minute when El-P, Killer Mike, Mr. Muthaf*ckin Exquire and Despot take to the stage at Echoplex. It's a CYP2 party - so you know it will get done right.   Your sense of humor would be well served by a trip to Largo for Sarah Silverman & Friends and your urge to dance would be satisfied by The VS Party with Dom Corleone and Gladiator.

Guitar aficionados can choose between the Americana vibe of Justin Townes Earle and Tristen at El Rey Theatre, The Growlers at Redondo's On The Rocks or The Heavy and The Skins at Bootleg Bar.   I'd go with Earle - he's impressive live.


Friday night, a familiar face, Jon Brion returns to Largo for his classic guitar act. Newcomers Gardens & Villa try and continue the hype machine moving forward at Troubadour, and Flosstradamus tries to do the same for the beat scene at Los Globos with help from Stonesthrow's Jonwayne, Dj Dodger Stadium and Keltronix.

If you are feeling regretful that you're no longer someone's lover - consider joining Sophie B. Hawkins for a throwback groove at The Hotel Caf� or if you just want some nostalgia, check out Who's Bad, the Michael Jackson tribute, at Saint Rocke.


2Mex at Grand Star Jazz Club, NO and Hands at The Satellite and Sabrosa Purr at The Viper Room are all notable too.




To end the month of June you could embrace L.A.'s biggest export of the 2011-2012 music season, Foster The People at Gibson Amphitheatre with support from Mayer Hawthorne & The County or try to join the bandwagon of what's to come with Mind The Gap and Heaps N Heaps at The Hotel Cafe or Standing Shadows performance at The Roxy.  The two latter are events featuring rocker's on the rise.

Want some beats to get down too on Saturday?  Look no further than the Echo complex with Beat Junkies spinning downstairs at Echoplex and Funky Sole taking place upstairs at Echo


As the year reaches its mid-point, L.A. bubbles over with some really amazing shows with Ben Harper and Fitz & The Tantrums invading Hollywood Bowl, Foster The People returning for a second night at Gibson Amphitheatre, Ghostland Observatory's lasers going nuts at Club Nokia and the free-form Sunday Funday Do Over event at Lure.  No list of recommendations would be complete without mentioning the strong indie line up of Terraplane Sun, Strange Vine, Ry Cumng and Family Wagon at Saint Rocke.

Beginning the holiday week that celebrates Independence Day, we've got a heavy dosage of indie from a handful of new residents - Family of the Year at Bootleg Bar, Terraplane Sun at The Satellite and American Royalty at Echo.  All are free.

Walter & Moore

Two captains of New Orleans style funk - Robert Walter and Stanton Moore - converge on the jazz enclave that is The Mint on Wednesday for a night of pure sonic ecstasy. Each are highly respected at their technical skills on their instruments (Walter - Hammond B3; Moore - drums) - and their live chops are something to be marveled.  


It is the last night of Robert Walter's month long residency - so there are potentially some special guests and other tricks and treats in store to attendees. Definitely consider going - and if you need an extra push, enter our ticket giveaway contest by emailing


Want a peak at what the madness might sound and look like - check this video out of both Moore and Walter performing together in 2009:

Heaps N Hotels...

Young upstarts Heaps N Heaps bring a special sneak preview of their full band version of their Americana alternative indie rock tunes this weekend at The Hotel Cafe as support for residents Mind The Gap.
While Heaps prep for a July performance at The Roxy - they will test out their dry run where the'll play some rawer material, showcase new tricks and likely expose some compositions to an audience for the first time...listen to their single "Take Me Back" here or watch it acoustically below...
