‘What The Butler Saw’ will have you in stitches!

What The Butler Saw

There's only nine performances left of English playwright Joe Orton's 1969 farce, What The Butler Saw, at Center Theatre Group's Mark Taper Forum, located in DTLA's Music Center. I saw the play a couple of weeks ago on its official opening night and without a doubt it was one of the most hilarious plays I've ever seen–I absolutely LOVED it. The fun starts off with a psychiatrist (played by Charles Shaughnessy of The Nanny fame) trying to seduce MORE

BANKS has me ‘Beggin For Thread’ on repeat

BANKS

A few weeks ago I caught BANKS' second sold out show at The Wiltern, which also was the final night of her Goddess Tour. I caught 26-year-old Los Angeles based singer / songwriter BANKS (Jillian Rose Banks) last December at Hollywood Forever's Masonic Lodge–and although I was quite impressed by her vocals–nothing grabbed me that night. Fast forward to September–BANKS drops her debut album, Goddess (on Harvest Records), I fall completely MORE

Sinéad O’Connor has ‘8 Good Reasons’ (maybe 9 now)

Sinéad O'Connor

I've loved Sinéad O'Connor for years and her tenth studio album, I'm Not Bossy, I'm the Boss (released on Nettwerk), is definitely one of 2014's best! Catch her just released music video for "8 Good Reasons," one of the album's best tracks as Sinéad gets quite candid in the lyrics. Having been raised Catholic–I get everything that Sinéad has been so vocal about over the year–her brave performance on SNL in 1992 remains MORE

Ferras knows how to “Speak In Tongues”

Ferras "Speak In Tongues"

Easily one of this year's best releases ... don't miss Ferras' new music video for the title track of his EP, Speak In Tongues. I got to see him open for Katy Perry (having just signed to her new label) a few months ago and he was fantastic. Please do pay attention when I actually manage to give a male artist the time of day ... as many of you know that I am so all about the ladies when it comes to music–but then you a have guy like Ferras pop MORE

Don’t miss Cicely Tyson–LIVE ON STAGE–6 performances left!

The Trip To Bountiful

These past few weeks have been insanely busy for me, between my day job over in the valley and everything else I have going on ... this past month I didn't know whether I was coming or going! A couple of weeks ago I attended the official opening night (in Los Angeles held at DTLA's Ahmanson Theatre–seated behind Judith Light!) of the critically-acclaimed revival of Pulitzer Prize winner Horton Foote's The Trip To Bountiful which was first MORE

Gwen Stefani is back with “Baby Don’t Lie”

Gwen Stefani "Baby Don't Lie"

I've been patiently waiting for Gwen Stefani to grace us with new solo material ever since the release of The Sweet Escape, back in 2006 ... which doesn't seem all that long ago but it actually has been eight long years! Thankfully, No Doubt's (totally stellar) 2012 release, Push and Shove, helped tide me over for a bit. Yet once I heard Gwen was joining The Voice as judge, I knew it would be the perfect time to plot her much needed return to the MORE

PICS & VIDS: Lana Del Rey @ Hollywood Forever Cemetery

Lana Del Rey | Hollywood Forever Cemetery | October 18, 2014

Last night, Lana Del Rey held court at the second of two instantly sold out surprise shows at Hollywood Forever Cemetery, which was absolutely amazing on every level. I saw Lana live at her debut Los Angeles show at the Troubadour in December 2011, which was decent yet nearly three years later, she has seriously sharpened her live performances–way better than the second time I saw Lana at the El Rey Theatre in June of 2012. I was pleasantly MORE

Giveaway: BROODS’ debut album ‘Evergreen’

BROODS

WINNERS: @christiansuxx @teenidling @whiteteeethteen Last Monday (10/13) I was able to catch New Zealand's brother and sister duo, BROODS aka Caleb and Georgia Nott, at their debut full-length album release party held at Los Angeles' El Rey Theatre. This was the second time I had seen them live (I caught them a few months ago at The Echo), and once again they totally kicked ass. Georgia has an incredible voice and Caleb is seriously the MORE
