Elbow @ The Wiltern

Elbow put on a pretty amazing show last night at the Wiltern. Very few voices top Guy Garvey's. Good crowd that was definitely into it...especially the two young fans that got Courteny Cox'd on to the stage for this song. Thanks again to my buddy mysugarspun for the ace video. I'm sure Elijah and Dom would be proud.

(500) Days of LA

So it turns out all I need to like a movie is good music, good writing, good setting and good Zooey...and that's what I got in (500) Days of Summer. While I was most excited about the role music-played in the movie, I was happily surprised to see how much love (500) Days had for DOWNTOWN Los Angeles. Nothing too epic, but as a lifelong Angeleno, I thought they did a good job of showing of some of Downtown's more interesting angles. The Bradbury Building, Angels Knoll, The Redwood Bar, to name a few, all got some screen time. Can't wait to see more movies use the real Downtown as a setting with all the changes going on. No, I'm not talking about LA LIVE: The Movie - just stuff around the lofts and Arts District maybe?

Grab the soundtrack and take a walk downtown for yourself with the (500) Days of Summer Downtown LA Map...did I miss anything?

Concert Week: Pains of Being Pure of Heart @ the Echo

July's concert week kicks off with Pains of Being Pure at Heart at the Echo (my fave venue). Care to learn nothing about them? Check out LAist's random questions for the lead singer. Going to 2-3 shows this week with my prego friend...lets see what band makes her pop!

UPDATE: Great, fun show...friggin' hot though. I grew a moustache out of sweat every few minutes. They played a really good NEW song, caught here by my buddy mysugarspun:

Brains + MRI + MIDI = Music?

This seems completely pointless to me but I guess its a great way to blow some grant money and get some press. What they need to do is MRI-music of musicians. I would buy a CD's worth of Thom Yorke's brain soundtrack.
