When Álex Lora played his first shows with Three Souls In My Mind, a Mexican band with English lyrics and a psychedelic name, it was October 1968.

Fifty years later, Lora is considered the godfather of Mexican rock and roll, his band, now named El Tri, is referred to as the Rolling Stones of Mexico, and his dream remains the same: Rock as hard you can on any given n...

Trail Mix: Amy McCarley

On the morning of April 14th, 1981, my third grade classmates and I packed on to buses and headed to the dry lake bed that was home to the flight line at Edwards Air Force Base, California, to witness history. That morning, Columbia – the first Space Shuttle – landed in the Mojave Desert, marking the return to Earth of NASA’s first reusable space craft. For this third grader, it was a damned cool experience. Being an Air Force brat definitely had its perks, and I got to see one more shuttl...

20 movies to see at the Red Bull Music Festival LA film series

In the late 1970s, when punk rock still seemed dangerous – no, it’s true, kids, you can ask your mom and dad – the venerable old Ukrainian Cultural Center in East Hollywood was one of the few places in Los Angeles willing to host shows for bands such as Black Flag and Bad Brains, the Minutemen and the Circle Jerks. These days it’s home to tamer events like the centennial of the late great Ukrainian-American actor Volodymyr Palahniuk – you may know him as Oscar-winning actor Jack Palance – or the...

David Bowie’s longtime pianist, who lost nearly everything in the Woolsey Fire, will celebrate the icon at three Southern California shows

Pianist Mike Garson calls from Amsterdam – at least he thinks that’s where he is, the longtime David Bowie sideman jokes. Traveling by bus through Europe on the tour called A Bowie Celebration it’s sometimes hard to know where you are when you wake after the overnight journey to the next city in another country. But Garson was definitely in Cologne, Germany the previous night with a band that includes other veterans of Bowie albums and tours. And the reaction of fans in that city mirrored those ...

Trail Mix – February 2019

I’ll never forget when I was first introduced to Ryan Bingham. A good friend sent me a mix of Americana artists some ten years ago. On the playlist was Bingham, and “Dylan’s Hard Rain,” from his Roadhouse Sun release, swiftly reeled me in. After that, I was down the rabbit hole, digging deeper into the catalog, staying tuned to subsequent releases, regularly marveling at Bingham’s gravel throated poetry. Imagine my elation when Trail Mix was able to pick up a track from Bingham’s new record, Am...

Andy Gill of Gang of Four talks Trump, punk, politics and ‘Entertainment!’ at 40

Gang of Four, whose iconic 1979 debut album “Entertainment!” arrived 40 years ago, always had a political edge as sharp as the jagged riffs of guitarist Andy Gill. But they tried to avoid specific events and figures in their songwriting back then, favoring the intersection of politics with the personal rather than polemics, says Gill in a recent phone call from London. “However, in this day and age Trump and family are providing so much entertainment it would be foolish, it would be rude, not to...
