Featured Show Of The Week:

  • 11/18:  Rebelution @ Hollywood Park Racetrack in Inglewood, CA.  10:00pm.  Listen>>

Hollywood Park is typically known for its casino and the gambling that takes place on the race track, but it’s also a great place to watch an outdoor live concert.  This Friday, November 18th, Santa Barbara reggae outfit Rebelution will preform on the track immediately following the night’s races.  Although it’s been cold in Los Angeles, Rebelution’ll make it feel like summertime.

I fuckin’ loved this show.

I was fortunate enough to catch the first stop on Mastodon’s headlining tour of the US last night at the Wiltern.  This tour is in support of their latest release, The Hunter, which is a 15-song masterpiece out on Reprise and in my opinion the best we’ve heard from them in years.  Mastodon did what was to be expected; played a tight, loud, heavy, unrelenting hour-long set to a packed and enthusiastic crowd.  Aside from watching a band like Mastodon, where it belongs, headlining a great venue, this is one of the most exciting hard rock/metal tours of the year, because of the incredible lineup that supports Mastodon.

This weekend is one of the best in a while for live music in the Los Angeles area.  Here are some of the best shows happening over the next few days.
