Plushgun + Tyler Shields = HELL YA!

I'm so jealous - some of my 2 favorite people just got together in NYC :)
I've been a PLUSHGUN fan for the past - - hmmmmm - - year i guess? I like him SO much, that I made my own DogTag necklaces with inscripted lyrics from PLUSHGUN's song "Just Impolite". Check out my previous posts about PLUSHGUN by clicking HERE, also HERE and then again HERE.

It is probably my favorite song of the year, and if you haven't heard it . . . listen to him on myspace here NOW.

go here and comment away:


new PLUSHGUN photos!

i love to have inspired this union. get ready for PLUSHGUN's first LA performance - debuting none other than a HELL YA! Night! WOOHOOO

Happy B-day to JAX! Pizza Party TODAY @ Silverlake Lounge!


Come celebrate the birth of Ashley Jex (aka JAX aka the ROCKINSIDER) who has been a friend of mine since she moved here from UTAH.

We both worked at KROQ together, both had a similar path actually . . . going from KROQ to Capitol Records and so forth.

We have been doing Hell Ya! Nights together from the beginning, which is now almost 2 1/2 yrs old!

we have both changed hairstyles to match our moods, both been hated on for being young & determined, both in the music biz for the right reasons: to promote good music.

now we both have our own indie labels, both still work at major record labels, and it seems our goals are in reach - - love you jax, thanks so much for all that you do. you are a true friend and a constant inspiration - so proud of you w/ JAXART. so excited with the things to come!!! HELL YA!



See you there!!!

Afterwards, I'l be heading to both Spaceland to see THE FEATURES, and ending up at the THE SMELL to see my fav. LA band THE MAE-SHI! This will be their last LA show before heading to SXSW to play 16 SHOWS! WTF!?!!?! 16???? That is just INSANITY. Looks like they might be 'the it band' of this years SXSW. (which i am NOT attending this year - first time actually!) I'm going to be here in LA - on a mini-vaca - getting organized, mani-pedi's, watching endless episodes of 30 rock and Arrested Developement etc...... I can't wait!!!

stay tuned for a recap of last nights HELL YA! @ the ROXY, and THURSDAY nights Girl School/HELL YA! @ the VIPER ROOM. I have photos coming soon! YAY

My 200th post! YAY. Plus a recap of HELL YA! last thursday w/ Mezz Owls & The Mae-Shi!

Damn I haven't ever been as busy as right now. It's a good thing. So much good stuff happening, and so many great club nights / dj events I've been involved with. I got to DJ the SPACELAND 13th Anniversary Party, which was amazing. 13 bands and it seemed I was djing for 13 hours. HAHA. I love djing though, so no complaints! (Thanks Jennifer!) :)

The past Hell Ya! Night was one of our best. As I have said before, I'm a terrible writer, with terrible grammar. So I will leave it up to a few other amazing bloggers to explain the greatness of last thursday's Hell Ya! Night @ The Echo w/ Frankel, Eagle & Talon, Mezzanine Owls, & of course THE MAE-SHI!

Thanks to the following bloggers for some great reviews:
Especially one from the CLASSICAL GREEK THEATRE BLOG, who pretty much summed up my thoughts here:
'Last night The Mae Shi proved, again, that they are the best live band in Los Angeles.


No, your counter-argument is wrong.

I love Silversun Pickups, Autolux, The Cold War Kids, Airborne Toxic Event, Earlimart, and any other LA flag-bearing band of excellence. Those bands are remarkable assemblages of talent and we are blessed to have them. They write amazing, inspiring, thoughtful music. They write better songs than songs The Mae Shi write. But The Mae Shi are the best fucking live band in Los Angeles. Bar. Fucking. None. End of the conversation. Omega. Fin.'

More notable reviews:



The Mae-Shi 'Lamb And The Lion' (live from Hell Ya! Night)
So yeah, overall the show kicked some serious ass. Hell to the Ya!
And CONGRATS to JAX for releasing the 7inch vinyl single of Mezzanine Owls on JAXART. BUY THAT SHIT NOW Before it's too late!
