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...

Eels’ singer-songwriter, recharged by fatherhood and time off the road, talks new tour coming to LA and Santa Ana

When Mark Oliver Everett, the singer-guitarist better known as E and founder of the indie rock band Eels, walked off stage in England in the summer of 2014, he knew the tour that wrapped that night wouldn’t be followed by his workaholic cycle of more than two decades. “Normally, it’s stop the tour, and go right into making the next record, and just keep on that endless track,” says E from the road recently in Buffalo, New York. “And this time, I came home from the tour and I wasn’t going to do t...

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...
