Not sure if we mentioned it before, but tis the season to announce festival lineups. This time lets head to the land of the grapevine that is Napa Valley for what is dubbed Bottle Rock Festival. Cork-Fest must not have had as much of a ring to it as I thought it did. This one is interesting because, well, one might ask why the Kings Of Leon would be the lead headliner along with The Black Keys and Furthur. Furthur? Come on ... Read More

No need to check your calender, it is not April Fools Day. Today is however that magical day when The Black Keys and The Flaming Lips announce four shows they'll play TOGETHER this Spring. No word on whether they'll alternate headlining slots or will they do what the Flaming Lips did with Weezer in 2011 when both bands set gear up onstage and each band would play three songs at a time before switching it up. Either way, this is TOO freaking ... Read More

Coachella Music and Arts Festival 04/13/12
Empire Polo Fields - Indio, CA
Words/Photos by Reverend Justito
There was a reason I have always avoided Coachella and that reason is the sun. Fact is my white ass doesn’t do so well out in the middle of the desert. So it is fitting that my first trip to Coachella felt more like my hometown of San Francisco versus the Palm Desert. Strong winds, sporadic showers and thick fog were a downer for everyone but me. But enough ... Read More

Firefly Music Festival To Be Held In Delaware
Delaware, welcome to the world of States that have sweet Music Festivals.
The news broke last night, that the three day ’Firefly Music Festival’, will be headlined by The Killers, The Black Keys and Jack White . Solid, right? I mean, sure The Killers aren’t in the stratosphere of musical relevance circa 2012 as the The Black Keys and Jack White are; but hey, they could have went with the Beach ... Read More

The Black Keys Announce 2012 North American Tour Dates
I suppose it makes sense that The Black Keys are touring arenas. I remember summer in San Francisco and trying to see the pride and joy of Akron Ohio which didn’t work out so well as there was an entire Polo Field on fans in front of me. So yeah, with El Camino about to drop and a rather sweet video for the first single "Lonely Boy" blowing up the interwebs we give to ... Read More

Outside Lands Music and Arts Festival 08/13/11
Golden Gate Park - San Francisco, CA
Words/Photos by Reverend Justito
With plenty of bands I wanted to catch spread across Golden Gate Park for the Saturday section of the 2011 Outside Lands Music and Arts Festival, you could compare my experience to that of a pinball. I bounced from stage to stage (and porta-potty to porta-potty) all day catching bits of performances from as many artists as I could.

The All-Stars were rocking the main ... Read More

Anymore it seems though every average Joe has to come up with their Best Of... list for the end of the year. Well, I’m no exception! This list started at 21 shows and I was able to knock it down to 10. I then decided I couldn’t make this list without including Split Lip Rayfield. So 11 it is!
2010 was a great year for me in terms of live shows. It all started off in February where ... Read More

21st Annual KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas Lineup Announced
The once groundbreaking Los Angeles radio powerhouse has unveiled the details for the 21st annual Almost Acoustic Christmas. For most music fans snobs, the lineup is very average to say the least. Thankfully, most fans of KROQ are not fans of music, so chances are the show will sell out faster than you can scream PAYOLA.
Pre-sales are later this week, but that does not matter as Gibson Amphitheatre will be filled with close and personal ... Read More

It’s the summer of 2006…. I, like most people, am looking for something new to listen to and at this time, most of the new music coming out is terrible. I ask a friend to give me something good I probably don’t have. He gave me a copy of ‘Magic Potion’ and as soon as the second track, “Your Touch” started, I was officially hooked. I knew that I had to see ... Read More
