The Gaslight Anthem 11/28 Terminal 5 NYC Review/Photos

December 10, 2012 The Audio Perv 3

By Keeyahtay Lewis

The Gaslight Anthem have become one of the biggest bands in the world. Every show they play, especially in the Tri-State area, is a big deal, selling out quickly. Their three night stint at Terminal 5 in NYC 11/28-30 was no different. Luckily, I was able to check them out again on the first night of that, Wed 11/28.

NY’s own Laura Stevenson and The Cans opened the show. This 5 piece indie/folk rock act was entertaining …

Gary Clark Jr. 11/12 KCRW Berkeley Street Sessions Review

November 15, 2012 The Audio Perv 3

By Malvina Rincon

Starting off his set with ‘When My Train Pulls In” from his new album Blak and Blu, Gary Clark Jr. almost makes it seem too easy. Wielding his guitar at an immediately awestruck crowd, he is in his element. In front of a select audience at Apogee’s Berkeley Street Studio for KCRW’s “Berkeley Street Sessions”, he looks at home with his guitar in hand. Ripping through “Ain’t Messin’ Round”, the first track from his new …

Circa Survive 10/27 Starland Ballroom Sayreville NJ Review/Photos

November 13, 2012 The Audio Perv 3


By Keeyahtay Lewis

Circa Survive spent the last couple months touring in support of their fantastic new album, Violent Waves. I caught the beginning of the tour in Philly, and on Saturday 10/27 I caught the last night of this leg of the tour in Sayreville, NJ at Starland Ballroom. In the last year alone I think I have photographed Circa Survive around 5 times, and a couple solo Anthony Green shows as well. If you are reading this, then …

Other Lives 11/3 El Rey Theatre Los Angeles Review/Photos

November 5, 2012 The Audio Perv 3


Words by Ace Ubas, Photos by Marcello Ambriz

Saturday night at the El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles was a special night for Oklahoma-based quintet Other Lives as it marked their 10-year anniversary as a band. But if you’ve been following them for the past couple of years, that’s not the only thing that makes them special. In the past, they’ve opened for seminal acts such as Radiohead and Bon Iver, and rode the festival circuit that included Coachella. …

Rob Zombie and Marilyn Manson Twins of Evil Tour 10/19 Camden Review/Photos

October 31, 2012 The Audio Perv 2


By Keeyahtay Lewis

This year there has been much talk about the Twins of Evil tour- two of the “evilest” men in rock touring together: Rob Zombie and Marilyn Manson. I had never seen either play, so I was stoked to check them out. Manson was opening the date in Camden. There was a large black curtain in front of the stage that remained up even as the music started. Finally the curtain dropped and revealed the stage. Darkness, …

All Time Low and The Early November 10/12 Starland Ballroom Sayreville Review/Photos

October 24, 2012 The Audio Perv 2


By Keeyahtay Lewis

All Time Low recently released their new album Don’t Panic and they are on tour to support that with their “Rockshow at the End of the World” tour. The tour stopped in Starland Ballroom with The Downtown Fiction and Jersey’s own The Early November for support. It has been a long time since I have seen The Early November and I was excited about getting there in time to check them out. Judging by all the comments …

Exitmusic 10/17 The Satellite Los Angeles Review

October 23, 2012 The Audio Perv 0


By Ace Ubas

Brooklyn’s Exitmusic has been a band that I’ve been excited about throughout this year. After putting on a stellar set opening for School of Seven Bells a few months ago and releasing a highly impressive debut album entitled Passage, they were back in Los Angeles on Wednesday to deservedly headline The Satellite.

The core of Exitmusic consists of husband and wife Devon Church (guitar) and Aleksa Palladino (vocals/guitar/keyboard) who formed the musical outlet back in 2003. Palladino’s …

October 17, 2012 The Audio Perv 3


By Jackie Ruth

This year marked the 11th annual Austin City Limits Music Festival, and it was as big as ever. With headliners like The Black Keys and Avicii on Friday, Jack White and Neil Young & Crazy Horse on Saturday and the Red Hot Chili Peppers on Sunday, there was no way it could be a bad experience. The 2012 festival attracted music fans from all over the globe and kept festival-goers of all ages entertained.

Frank Turner and The Sleeping Souls 9/30 Webster Hall Review and Photos

October 14, 2012 The Audio Perv 0

By Matt Arena

It’s always interesting to see successful acts overseas come to the US. The level of popularity usually takes a while to catch on, look at artists like Arctic Monkeys or Muse. For a while they went from household names in the UK to being relatively unknown in the US. Frank Turner had just recently headlined Wembley Arena and played at the opening ceremony in the Olympics, so having him at the 1500 person sized Webster Hall in …

Check Yo Ponytail 2 DIIV, Violens, Cold Showers 10/9 Echo Review

October 12, 2012 The Audio Perv 0


By Ace Ubas

For Check Yo Ponytail 2’s latest show on Tuesday night at the Echoplex in Los Angeles, they brought together acts ranging from darkwave (Cold Showers) and psychedelic rock (Violens) to ear-blistering (or damaging) shoegaze garage rock (headliners DIIV). While the show itself didn’t draw a crowd big enough to meet Echoplex standards, the only thing that mattered was that the acts put on a show good enough for the crowd to …
