Grammys 2019: Women dominate the award show performances

The 61st Annual Grammy Awards ceremony was dominated by strong female-led performances.

Producer Linda Perry says her Grammy nomination is really already a win

Of course singer-songwriter and noted music producer Linda Perry would be elated to walk away from the 61st Annual Grammy Awards on Sunday night, Feb. 10, at Staples Center in Los Angeles cradling the shiny trophy for producer of the year, non classical, but as far as she’s concerned the nomination alone is really already a win. Perry is being recognized for her work on rising Los Angeles rock band Dorothy’s sophomore album “28 Days in the Valley,” the soundtrack to “Served Like a Girl,” a docum...

Watch Kraftwerk's earliest concert video and witness the birth of the man-machines

From the archives of Germany's public broadcasting institution WDR, this televised concert video of Kraftwerk from 1970, the year of the band's formation. Even then, their post-Krautrock motorik dynamism is trance-inducing. Far fucking out. (via Laughing Squid)

Muse, The Killers, Bishop Briggs and more mix things up at the 2nd Annual ALT 98.7/FM ALTer Ego

Alt 98.7/FM’s 2nd Annual iHeartRadio ALTer Ego bash sold out at The Forum in Inglewood on Saturday night and it had quite an impressive line-up with show-topping performances courtesy of arguably two of the biggest modern day rock bands: Muse and The Killers. Though The Killers, fearlessly led by the charismatic Brandon Flowers, brought the mostly lethargic crowd to life via its much too short — but hit-filled — set, they don’t get all of the credit. Maybe it’s still super early in the year and ...

Hosted by late night host Jimmy Kimmel, the evening ended up being a 5-hour, 42-song music marathon that showcased a who’s who of rock ‘n’ roll and Hollywood. “We are very d...

Louis Posen of Van Nuys’ Hopeless Records looks back on 25 years of hard work, good times and punk rock

Hopeless Records started as a mere hobby for Los Angeles native Louis Posen, but it has turned into 25 years of blood, sweat and a whole lot of fun and punk rock music. Back in the early ’90s, Posen was a film student at Cal State Northridge and had just shot a music video for punk rock band NOFX when he was introduced to Huntington Beach band Guttermouth. The group basically dared Posen to put out its latest 7-inch, even though his only knowledge of the business side of music came from a book h...

Styx kicks off City National Grove of Anaheim’s 20th anniversary celebration

On Sept. 4, 1999, rock band Styx became the first group to grace the stage at City National Grove of Anaheim, then known as The Sun Theatre. The yellow and tan-colored, multi-use entertainment venue, located off Katella Avenue in between Disneyland and Honda Center, is easy to spot with its giant branded water tower. The building along the northern edge of the Angel Stadium parking lot had briefly served as an awards show-themed restaurant, Tinseltown Studios, in 1998 but the concept failed to t...

New Year’s Eve 2019: Ozzy Osbourne reflects on life, drugs and music ahead of ringing in the New Year with Ozzfest at The Forum

It should really come as no surprise that the Prince of Darkness isn’t all that into Christmas. Ozzy Osbourne, who fronted the legendary metal band Black Sabbath, said he’s not keen on all the surrounding hoopla. Bright, twinkling lights, holly jolly music, Rudolph and Santa Claus really don’t mesh well with the black clothing, dark eyeliner and horror and war-themed lyrical content of Sabbath and Osbourne’s extensive solo catalog. “I’d been telling Sharon for years I want to work through Christ...

This year’s variety of experiences includes everything from burlesque and circus performances, live heavy metal, punk rock, electronic, ’80s and jazz music and comedy shows with lots of pa...
