Álex Lora, the godfather of Mexican rock and roll, celebrates 50 years on the road with El Tri in Anaheim

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. He was a 15-year-old kid from the state of Puebla, and his dreams only reached as far as the next gig, and then the one after that. 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...

Here’s how the modes we listen to music have changed over the years

The 61st Grammy Awards are Sunday, Feb. 10, and how we listen to music has changed quite a bit since they began in the 1950s. Are vinyl records really making a comeback in the age of streaming? Yes and no. Changing formats Recording Industry Association of America data on sales volume by format show how people have changed the way they get their music. The RIAA has comprehensive data on U.S. recorded music revenues and shipments dating all the way back to 1973. The way we listen timeline N...

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 ...

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...

From gun violence to her famous parents, Rosanne Cash brings personal songs to her two Southern California shows

After recording three concept albums, singer-songwriter Rosanne Cash says she longed for a return to the personal on her next record, the collection “She Remembers Everything.” Her triple Grammy-winning 2014 album “The River & Thread” focused on the characters and geography of the South. “The List” saw her cover 12 songs in 2009 from a collection of essential country numbers that her father Johnny Cash had written down for her when she was 18. “And then ‘Black Cadillac’ was really about death an...

Okilly Dokilly, a ‘Simpsons’-inspired metal band, come to Southern diddly California for three doodly shows

It started as a joke. The idea that what the world needed – more than another earnest indie rock band, another braggadocious rapper, another faceless EDM producer DJ – was Okilly Dokilly, a death metal band inspired by Ned Flanders, the Simpsons’ do-gooder sweater-and-polo-wearing neighborino. “We were joking around imagining a scenario where a band comes on stage with fire and effects, and it’s just the heaviest show intro for a metal-ocalypse,” said Head Ned, the lead singer and founder who – ...

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 ...

50 years ago, these were the No. 1 albums and music singles of 1969

In 1969 you either bought your music on black plastic circles and used a needle to scratch sounds out of the vinyl, heard it on the airwaves, most likely on a lo-fi AM radio, or, if you were lucky, saw your favorite bands and musicians live in concert. The best-selling album of the year, Iron Butterfly’s “In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida,” plateaued at No. 4 on the charts, but that’s probably because the 10 albums that made it to the top were more uniformly solid, nearly all of them still considered classics....

It was the last year of the ’60s, and the last year for Boris Karloff, Judy Garland and the Beatles, too. But it was also the first year for Led Zeppelin, Jennifer Aniston, “Easy Rider” and Jay-Z, too. John Lennon and Yoko Ono spent part of it in bed in public. The Doors’ Jim Morrison spent part of it in jail. Moviegoers spent time watching “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,” while at home they watched a brand-new show called “The Brady Bunch” about a brand-new kind of blended family, the youn...

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...
