Los Feliz’s Good Luck Bar is closing after nearly 25 years

For nearly 25 years, Los Feliz’s kitschy Good Luck Bar has strived to be “one of those only-in-L.A. unexpected places.” But Angelenos are out of Luck. Early this week, the bar’s owners announced on social media that Good Luck Bar was “being evicted to make room for the redevelopment of the building, reportedly a hotel and swinging hot spot” at 1514 Hillhurst Ave. The news of its closing, which is expected to come the first week of May, hit customers hard as they shared their remorse and fond mem...

Prelude to the Thunder: An Alumnus of Bob Dylan’s Rolling Thunder Revue Looks Back (Guest Column)

As Martin Scorsese’s Netflix documentary about Bob Dylan’s 1975 Rolling Thunder Revue approaches, one of the members of that traveling troupe, J. Steven Soles, writes about his memories of how the idea of a communal tour gradually took shape. In the spring of 1975, my new managers at Lookout Management were putting me out on […]

The 50 best songs about Europe – ranked!

Brexit is delayed – so voyager avec nous on a trans-European tour of music, from Paris to Berlin via Finistère. Tout le monde à bord!Poor old Lloyd went to Amsterdam and all he got was double pneumonia in a single room. And, by the sounds of it, his love life is going horribly wrong. Just don’t ask him about the price of medicine (obviously he didn’t get his European health insurance card). It’s enough to make anyone go No Deal, really. Continue reading...

Coachella 2019: Bob Moses returns to the desert music festival with ‘Battle Lines,’ a new album made in LA

Jimmy Vallance recounts with lingering horror how Bob Moses, his electronic rock act with Tom Howie, survived a near-disaster of a debut at the Coachella Valley Arts & Music Festival in 2016 just as the duo with the singular name was taking off. The single “Tearing Me Up” was rising on the alternative radio charts, but the group’s infrastructure – the roadies and tech guys that make life better for bands on the road – hadn’t caught up with the velocity of buzz about the band.

Trailer for new documentary about the 60s-70s Laurel Canyon music scene featuring Tom Petty, Cat Power, Jackson Browne, Norah Jones

In the 1960s and 1970s, Los Angeles's Laurel Canyon neighborhood was flowing with sex, drugs, and folk-rock and roll. Joni Mitchell, the Byrds, Jackson Brown, Carole King, the Mamas & The Papas, and countless other musicians made the scene or had homes in the hills. Echo in the Canyon is a new documentary about that magical moment and the influential sound that emerged. The trip back in time to this "legendary paradise, as Tom Petty called it, was directed by Andrew Slater with Jakob Dylan as ex...

See Classic Performances of Joni Mitchell from the Very Early Years–Before She Was Even Named Joni Mitchell (1965/66)

A photograph of two old friends—Joni Mitchell and David Hockney—holding hands at Hockney’s L.A. solo exhibition took over the internet for a moment, for sentimental reasons Guy Trebay laid out in The New York Times. These include the fact that “Ms. Mitchell has seldom been seen in public since she says she was given a diagnosis of Morgellons disease, and suffered a brain aneurysm in 2015,” and “despite the presence of the cane she uses since having learned again to walk, Ms. Mitchell app...

Reckless Daughter - A Portrait of Joni Mitchell ~ David Yaffe

My love for all things Joni has been well-documented on here down the years so I couldn't think how on earth I had missed Reckless Daughter - A Portrait of Joni Mitchell by David Yaffe, published in October 2017,  And then I knew exactly how, because I had been here with my lovely and completely un-reckless but very adventurous daughter... I had spent October 2017 in New Zealand with Offspringette, and missed all the articles and publicity. By the time I arrived home it was all about Philip ...

When a poet shows he is jealous

Everyone loves poetry. In theory. Not that anyone actually wants their child to end up a poet. In that sense, we — ever since I was an undergrad, I confess to occasionally publishing poems in little magazines with, as Calvin Trillin used to say, circulations in the high two figures — are like guitar players. Fine with parents if Junior wants to pluck a little. Just God forbid he should try to take it on the road. But we continue to exalt poetry. To treat it as the best manmade thing in the world...

Writing about Gov. Northam this morning, I went looking for the old Ted Danson blackface routine (the one Whoopi Goldberg dared him to do)...

... and I found this parody by Howard Stern. How can Stern survive when that's on YouTube?Man, he commits to the mocking racism with over-the-top racism. Interesting to see Sherman Hemsley (AKA George Jefferson) in the role of Whoopi Goldberg.And what about Joni Mitchell? And Tom Hanks? And Sarah Silverman?I couldn't find video of the old Ted Danson effort, but here's an article with a still photo. ADDED: Further research suggests that there was never any videotape of Danson's performance — a Fr...

On Black Girl Magic and Georgia Anne Muldrow's Latest, 'Overload'

None The song "Vital Transformation" is solemn yet expansive, austere yet hopeful. It floats along, kickdrum and handclap accents punctuating the lyrics instead of marking four-on-the-floor. The song itself a swirl, it begins with the swirling, layered incantation, "transforming changing higher spiraling higher", repeated three times, along with the insistence, "it's vital". The lyrics read like stanzas of poetry on the page, but take on a warm, relatable quality when their author, Georgia Anne...

Charlene Soraia Wonders 'Where's My Tribe'

None Life is complex. Sometimes the most complicated feelings and emotions can be best explained over the simplest means. That is the principle behind the latest collection of unswervingly honest songs by British singer-songwriter Charlene Soraia. On her new album Where's My Tribe she holds a mirror up to herself in an attempt to understand who she is and where she fits in the modern world, with just a single acoustic guitar for company. The result is a collection of raw, vulnerable acoustic so...

Maggie Rogers Inspires Introspection On Debut Album

The world and Pharrell Williams met Maggie Rogers at the same time, effectively. Though she later said she had no idea he would be there, much less that the interaction would be filmed and put on the internet, Pharrell’s reaction to her song “Alaska” went viral; one of the giants of music production told this college student he had zero notes to better her track, “Alaska.” A music sensation was born as the clip made its way through Reddit onto music blogs and Rogers found herself booked to play...
