Lineup of the Day: Coachella

I’m just going to leave this here and let you think about this. As you can see (if you enlarge the image) the headliners are Kings of Leon, Arcade Fire and Kanye West. Plus the fact that there are a million other really great bands. Let this sink in for a few minutes…

Listen: Bruno Mars – “Grenade” Live at The Grove, LA

So last week we let you guys know about a Bruno Mars secret show at The Grove in LA. We didn’t catch the show since we have jobs…gotta make that green!  I’ll basically go to anything that is a.) free or b.) at The Grove so I am sad that I couldn’t go, especially after listening to a few more songs on his upcoming debut album.

Watch his performance of “Grenade” below and make sure to grab his album out early October!

Kings Of Leon Concert, Tonight

I hate to make anyone jealous but I  must release my excitement for the Kings of Leon show I’ll be attending tonight at the infamous Hollywood Bowl before I burst.  I’ve been a KOL fan since their inception, LONG before “Sex On Fire,” and I’m glad to see a great band with actual talent make it big. That’s what this industry is about right? Making and spreading GOOD music? I’d rather a previously under-the-radar band “hit it big” than a talentless, washed-up “celebrity” (a la Lindsay Lohan), but I digress.

After living in Los Angeles for 3 years, tonight I will lose my Hollywood Bowl virginity. That’s right. I live right above it in the hills, get stuck in its horrendously slow traffic every day of the summer, but have never attended one of its numerous summer shows. What a better way to be de-virginized than by seeing Kings Of Leon? At any rate, expect to see some uploads from the concert within the next few days. However, I must warn you, I will be in attendance tonight with my binocular-shaped flask. Needless to say, the pictures may turnout subpar — thanks in advance for your understanding!

Enjoy some Bonnaroo KOL “Sex On Fire,” my friends! Wish you were here.
