See what concerts at Inglewood’s SoFi Stadium will be like in 2021

Though SoFi Stadium in Inglewood will be home base for both the Los Angeles Rams and Chargers, there’s an even bigger vision for the sprawling 298-acre Hollywood Park than football.

Cherie Currie talks new music, reviving ‘Queens of Noise’ and how wielding chainsaws is therapeutic

Though the coronavirus global pandemic put a pause on live concerts as well as most planned album releases, rocker and ex-Runaways frontwoman Cherie Currie just wanted to let her latest solo album rip. Currie’s “Blvds of Splendor” had been a decade in the making, but finally dropped digitally back in April via Runaways guitarist Joan Jett and Kenny Laguna’s Blackheart Records. Though the album was originally put out as a very limited edition red-vinyl on Record Store Day in 2019, the digital rel...

Tommy Lee talks Tik Tok fame, new music and Mötley Crüe’s postponed comeback

After Mötley Crüe agreed to permanently retire following a farewell tour in 2015, Tommy Lee promised himself he’d take a full year off. He’d spent more than three decades playing and partying hard on tour with bandmates bassist Nikki Sixx, vocalist Vince Neil and guitarist Mick Mars, so spending time at home with family and friends sounded like a good deal. He nearly made it, but his basement recording studio ultimately beckoned him and before he knew it he was deep into making an eclectic mix o...

Author Jim Ruland’s ‘Do What You Want’ offers all-access look at punk band Bad Religion

Author Jim Ruland is fascinated by the history of punk rock in Southern California. The area is the birthplace of noteworthy acts including X, Minutemen, Descendents, Social Distortion, Adolescents, The Germs, The Vandals, Black Flag, Circle Jerks and Bad Religion. “The story of Southern California punk rock and the way that it took hold here in ways that it maybe didn’t in other places like New York or London that have more infamous scenes … it’s interesting,” Ruland said during a recent phone ...

Bad Religion’s Greg Graffin talks about the band’s 40 years of punk rock

This was set to be a big year for Bad Religion. The San Fernando Valley-based punk rock band had plans to commemorate its 40th anniversary, but the coronavirus global pandemic forced the cancellation of its 2020 global jaunt. As well, this year marks anniversaries for three of Bad Religion’s biggest albums: Its 1990 album “Against the Grain” turns 30, 2000’s “The New America” turns 20 and 2010’s “The Dissent of Man” celebrates its 10th anniversary. “We’ve always done something important in the y...

Mit diesen Songs von Never Have I Ever fühlst du dich wieder wie ein Teenie

Achtung: Der Artikel enthält kleine Spoiler zur Netflix-Serie Never Have I Ever (Noch nie in meinem Leben). Klischeemäßig werden Nerds in Filmen und Serien immer als sehr schüchterne, aber extrem schlaue Außenseiter dargestellt. Im Handlungsverlauf lernen wir sie dann schätzen und merken, das sie überraschend liebenswert sind – und manchmal lustig, hilfsbereit oder auch hoffnungslos romantisch. Etwas, das allerdings so gut wie nie mit den Geeks in Verbindung gebracht wird, ist sexuelles Verlange...

Los Angeles-based Americana rock band Mustangs of the West reunites to ride again

With strong harmonies driving their rocking country music, the Mustangs were boot-deep into the Los Angeles cowpunk scene in the 1980s and early 90s. They were regulars at the Palomino club in the San Fernando Valley, the epicenter of the movement, and performed at festivals like SXSW and alongside bands such as The Stray Cats and Edie Brickell and the New Bohemians at the Roskilde Festival in Denmark. While the Mustangs fizzled out in the mid ’90s the band is back with a new name — the Mustangs...

Coronavirus closure is just another bump in Kulak’s Woodshed’s financially rocky road

Johnny Ramone’s widow Linda talks new line of Happy Socks and band’s punk rock legacy

Johnny Ramone, like all of the Ramones, shared an instantly recognizable sense of style: Black leather jacket, T-shirt, ripped jeans, sneakers. With that, you had a look as important to punk fashion as the Ramones’ ferocious music was to the punk rock sound. But Johnny did have a bit of flash and flair at times, his widow Linda Ramone says. “As the years went on, he incorporated different colored T-shirts,” she says from the backyard of the San Fernando Valley home she shared with Johnny from 19...

For Los Lobos, the legendary band from East L.A., the road map to their first-ever holiday album “Llegó Navidad” started with a list of 150 or so Christmas songs from across the Latin music diaspora. “There were a couple of provisos,” says Steve Berlin, Los Lobos’ saxophonist and keyboard player. “One was something that we could pull off. A lot of the stuff, oddly enough, was pretty complex and had a lot of moving parts, and quite frankly we didn’t really have time for because we were touring pr...
