Three years later, concert director Richard Kraft and producer Laura Engel presented an entirely new type of experience as with the help of technology they were able to take their “The Little Mermaid...

Johnny Marr, iconic guitarist for The Smiths, talks about making music ahead of a pair of Southern California concerts

With so much trouble in the world, Johnny Marr says he wonders if people have stopped caring – or if maybe it’s something else. “Do we care so much that there’s nothing left to do except get on with things?” asks the musician during a phone call from the U.K. The famed guitarist and songwriter, best known for his work with the 1980s British band The Smiths, says he’s “pretty optimistic.” “I know about the good in people,” he adds. Plus, he says he’s impressed by the way that younger generations ...

Ani DiFranco describes writing new memoir as ‘terrifying’

Singer-songwriter Ani DiFranco doesn’t seem like the kind of person who scares easily, and it’s not like she hasn’t written scores of songs in her three decades in music, but to hear her tell it there was just something … intimidating about sitting down to write “No Walls and the Recurring Dream,” her just-published memoir. “I’ve been accessing my life experience a lot in my songs obviously for many decades,” DiFranco said recently by phone from New Orleans, her home in recent years after growin...

Garbage’s Shirley Manson talks fan tattoos, new music and empowering women in the music industry before headlining the Shrine Auditorium

It has only been seven months since rock band Garbage has played in Southern California, but the quartet already has a few new tricks up its sleeve. The last time Garbage performed in the area, vocalist Shirley Manson used her magical powers to conjure the clouds and make it sprinkle during the band’s hit song, “Only Happy When It Rains,” off of its 1995 self-titled debut at the Foo Fighters-curated Cal Jan ’18 in San Bernardino. The majority of last year, Garbage was out on tour celebrating the...

How the Rapture came to Just Like Heaven: The return of Luke Jenner after walking away from stardom

Luke Jenner found a good measure of fame and a nice chunk of fortune as the singer-guitarist in the Rapture. He met personal heroes, big stars like David Bowie and Robert Smith of the Cure. And then he turned his back on all that. It was 2012, and the Rapture was humming along, three albums into its career when Jenner walked away, although tiptoed might be the better word given how quietly the break-up of the band occurred, no official acknowledgment coming until two years later. Jenner, who gre...

Punk rock band Rise Against goes acoustic for a pair of shows at The Theatre at Ace Hotel

When the members of Chicago-based punk rock band Rise Against were tasked with hunkering down in the studio last year and creating just a couple of acoustic versions of songs off their latest album, “Wolves,” it turned into a full-on deep dive into the band’s eight album catalog. The quartet emerged from the 12-day studio session having come up with and recorded alternative renditions of 10 of their songs. “The record started with some very humble intentions,” Rise Against vocalist-guitarist Tim...

And it’s the first K-pop group to play the taste-making festival. With a new album that dropped last week, this 55-minute set was Blackpi...

Ozzy Osbourne postpones all of his 2019 tour dates including a stop at the Hollywood Bowl

The Prince of Darkness, Ozzy Osbourne, has had a streak of bad luck lately as he’s been trying to finish his final global jaunt dubbed the No More Tears 2 Tour. He had to postpone the original dates back in October because of an infection in his hand, which caused him to have immediate surgery and be hospitalized at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles where he remained under a doctors care for several days. He did, however, manage to rally enough to kiss off 2018 and welcome 2019 with ope...

Well before singer-songwriter Michael Bublé took the stage at Staples Center during his latest An Evening With Michael Bublé Tour on Tuesday night, April 2, his fans filed in early, dressed to the nines and ready for a little pre-show cocktail hour. They really classed up the joint, where just the evening before the Los Angeles Kings hockey team lost 7-2 to the Calgary Flames. “When I hear the word romance, I also think hockey arena,” the 43-year-old Canadian said to the audience.
