TVD Live Shots: Metallica at Chase Center, 12/17

Metallica turns forty! If band years were calculated similarly to dog years, that would make Metallica (breaks out calculator) pretty freaking old. Let’s face it, the Four Horsemen have defied all odds by endured the ups and downs of being a band. From line-up changes to experimental music projects (LuLu) to putting all their shit […]

TVD Live Shots: Thievery Corporation with Dessa at the Wiltern, 12/17

Rob Garza and Eric Hilton continue to up their game with what undoubtedly was one of their finest live performances of 2021. From start to finish, the Thievery Corporation’s gathering in Los Angeles was spectacular and a much-needed diversion from all the chaos most have experienced over the past few years. If this show is […]

TVD Live Shots: Pigs
Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs at the Electric Ballroom, 12/17

It’s the last show of the year for me, and it was a fucking banger. Newcastle’s Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs finally got to play their sold-out gigs at the Electric Ballroom after Covid rescheduled several dates, and it was worth the wait. These guys popped on my radar during the lockdown, and […]

TVD Live Shots: The Charlatans at Brixton Academy, 12/10

Yet another reason I love living in the UK: Brit-pop icons The Charlatans playing a sold-out gig at the legendary Brixton Academy. Wrapping up a rollercoaster of a year, and on the brink of yet another lockdown, I was thrilled that the show would go on despite a raging variant. Having lived in the States, […]

TVD Live Shots: Courtney Barnett
with Bartees Strange
at The Theatre at Ace Hotel, 12/9

PHOTOS: JULIA LOFSTRAND | With so much music out there right now, it seems that anyone with a computer can soapbox their way onto a stage. With overdeveloped artists reliant on every industry professional but themselves, POVS have become diluted and less thought-provoking. But, if anything, it’s just a reflection of our instant gratification culture. […]

TVD Live: Bob Dylan at the Anthem, 12/2

Before it was so rudely interrupted, Bob Dylan’s annual touring regimen took on a recurring pattern, playing the same towns the same times of the year. His last time in Washington, DC was the first week of December 2019. The final show in that leg of the campaign that he never called the Never Ending […]

TVD Live: Amyl and the Sniffers at the Electric Ballroom 11/24

While the rest of the world is just discovering UK punk sensations and critic’s darlings, IDLES, Amyl and the Sniffers are primed to be the next unexpected force to be reckoned with. The words Aussie and punk aren’t mentioned very often in the same sentence, so one would wonder how in the hell a punk […]

TVD Live Shots: Sam Fender at Alexandra Palace, 11/21

The most prominent breakout artist in recent memory is at a pinnacle here in the UK, and his sights are now set on the rest of the world. Sam Fender is the real fucking deal and one of the most talented singer-songwriters of the past decade. I like to think of him as the Bruce […]

TVD Live: The Flaming Lips at The Anthem, 11/16

Add to the list of necessary roadie skills that of leaf blower. He’s the guy who scampers on stage at a Flaming Lips concert to inflate a series of transparent plastic bubbles surrounding lead singer Wayne Coyne—or similarly blow-up giant rainbows, or swaying pink robots, as required. Decades ago, Coyne developed the idea of singer-in-plastic […]

TVD Live Shots: Iron
& Wine and Squirrel Flower at the Cleveland Museum of Art, 11/16

Aside from getting called a “sir” by some stuffy elder docent, tonight is proving itself to be a special treat. It’s not often that I’m headed to a concert at the Cleveland Museum of Art. The Gartner Auditorium itself has an impressive organ and intricate woodworking panels throughout. Alice Coltrane is flowing out of the […]

TVD Live Shots: Nada Surf and Pom Pom Squad at the Grog Shop, 11/15

I spent Monday night at the Grog Shop with a bunch of other cool cats who made the smart decision to see Nada Surf and Pom Pom Squad. It’s a perfect tour pairing, as Pom Pom Squad’s sound pays homage to her riot grrrl predecessors and Nada Surf, well, practically IS the ’90s. But as […]
