Robyn + Röyksopp = Perfect Combination!

Robyn + Röyksopp

A week ago I was lucky enough to attend Robyn and Röyksopp's sold out show at the Hollywood Bowl (a mere five-minute stroll from my apartment) with 17,000 other people. The Swedish pop star (who has actually been on the music scene for almost twenty years now) and Norwegian duo joined forces together, recently releasing a tight five-track EP called Do It Again (iTunes) and are now promoting it on their Do It Again Tour 2014, there's only a few MORE

Get to know Broods (if you don’t already)

Broods

This past week I headed over to The Echo in Silverlake to catch one of the buzz bands of the moment, Broods. The brother and sister pop music duo who hail from New Zealand are 21-year old Caleb and 19-year-old Georgia Nott. After they released their single "Bridges," they were signed to Capitol Records and dropped their self-titled EP back in January. I kept hearing people talk about these two, so I was finally glad to see and hear what all the MORE

Katy Perry launched her Prismatic World Tour!

Katy Perry

After the October release of her much anticipated third studio album PRISM, our favorite "California Gurl" is back, and she hasn’t even skipped a beat. Katy Perry kicked off her Prismatic World Tour Wednesday night at Belfast’s Odyssey Arena in front of a sold-out crowd of over 8,000. “This tour is going to be fantastic, I’m going to be very close to the audience, and I’m taking it to the next level,” said Perry, and she did just MORE

Delta Rae killed it at the Troubadour!

Delta Rae

Last week (March 27th) I got to see one of my favorite bands, Delta Rae, for the fifth time live ... that's how much I love them. This was the third time I had seen 'em play at Los Angeles' Troubadour, and once again they completely killed it front of everyone at the sold out show! Delta Rae is currently on the Chasing Twisters Tour in support of their latest EP, Chasing Twisters (listen to the title track here), which is the follow-up to their MORE

Sam Smith Previews ‘In The Lonely Hour’ in NYC: Concert Review

Sam Smith

Sam Smith is the best new artist of 2014. Yes, it’s only March and Smith has yet to release an album. But that said, there’s a reason that so many fans are heralding the 21-year-old English singer/songwriter as “the male Adele” across the web. For starters, Smith is the recipient of the BBC’s Sound of 2014 poll and the BRIT Critics’ Choice Award, both of which Adele won in 2008 before collecting her first Grammy a year later. And MORE

Justin Timberlake: Why you flipping me off?

Justin Timberlake

Most of the time, when we post videos of celebrities responding to hecklers in concert, it's usually because they're having an epic freak out that only makes them look worse. So here's Justin Timberlake showing everyone how to handle a heckler. Apparently someone decided to flip him the bird during his 20/20 Experience World Tour show in Philly, and his response was to basically mock her for doing the most blatantly assy thing someone can do in a MORE

Miley Cyrus kissed Katy Perry! QUICK! Someone call 2008!

Miley Cyrus and Katy Perry

Over the weekend, Katy Perry went to Miley Cyrus' Bangerz tour at Los Angeles' Staples Center, and the two of them ended up kissing for a fraction of a second. Despite the fact that one of Katy's first songs was about kissing girls and liking it, while Miley buried her head in a woman's ass during her VMAs performance, somehow this was news. I'm not saying this to bash either of them, but come on: there are certain things that just shouldn't be MORE

Keep your eyes (and ears) on Conway!

Conway

Last week I was invited to catch up-and-coming singer / songwriter Conway's show held at Los Angeles' Museum of Natural History (as part of their First Fridays series). I heard of her late last year when she released her Big Talk EP (iTunes) which I enjoyed and peaked my curiosity enough to check her out live. I wasn't sure quite what to expect but in the end I was thoroughly impressed by Conway. I thought she put on such a fantastic show (my MORE

Sky Ferreira christens Rough Trade in Brooklyn!

Sky Ferreira

Sky Ferreira has been busy these days. She just wrapped up a small tour to promote her long-awaited (and incredible) debut record Night Time, My Time (iTunes), had a mishap with the law in upstate New York which was completely blown out of proportion according to her (she explains herself rather candidly in an interview with John Norris). After experiencing supposed bouts of laryngitis and bronchitis which have been misdiagnosed by many doctors MORE

Charli XCX does NYC’s Irving Plaza

Charli XCX

After postponing her US tour to open up for Paramore in the the UK, Charli XCX finally returned to NYC to serenade us with her brand of dark electro-pop. On this unseasonably cold autumn night, Irving Plaza filled up with excited teenagers (and a few mom and dads), gay men, and the tastemakers of this city—which include but are not limited to Greg K (of Misshapes fame), Betty Who and of course PopBytes. ;) LIZ, R&B songstress from MORE

Selena Gomez made the #StarsDance!

Selena Gomez Stars Dance Tour

If you told me say five years ago that I would someday end up at a Selena Gomez concert, I would have told you NEVER! But my gosh, ever since I took notice of Selena's 2010 track "A Year Without Rain," I've slowly become a fan and this past week I did find myself at Selena Gomez concert, I might even be a Selenator! Selena brought her Stars Dance Tour to downtown Los Angeles' Staples Center to support her latest album, Stars Dance, which is MORE

Celine Dion showcases ‘Loved Me Back To Life’ at intimate NYC concert

Celine Dion

It’s been six years since pop icon Celine Dion has released an English-language album. “I had two babies and a French album and a Vegas show! I've been busy!" Dion explained to an adoring audience at her concert in New York City on October 29. But with this week’s release of her new album, Loved Me Back To Life (which hit stores yesterday), the French Canadian songstress is more than ready for her comeback. When it came time to record MORE

Fifth Harmony is Here to Slay so You Better (Together) Start Paying Attention

Fifth Harmony

Let me preface this piece by saying that I have been a Fifth Harmony fan since they were LYLAS singing “Impossible” on The X Factor. I was lucky enough to meet them at an MTV event before the VMAs and they couldn’t have been sweeter. This past Thursday, I attended the launch of Nick Radio to see the girls perform and got to speak with Camila for a short moment as she took a pee break. Ally even waved from the stage. I could totally be MORE

NONONO is “Pumpin Blood”

NONONO

I don't what it is about Sweden, but that country seriously produces some amazing pop music. Last week I had the chance to attend Swedish threesome NONONO's first official show here in Los Angeles at The Echo in Silverlake where they kicked ass. Lead singer Stina Wappling was super adorable up on stage and appeared to be totally humbled by all the attention they've been getting. The Stockholm based group has been generating a ton of buzz with MORE
