You remember not so long ago when College radio ruled the alternative airways and artists actually sold record based on its airplay?
OK ok ok College radio is not what it used to be but there are a few stations that still continue to break the mold and put well deserving quality bands on the air. My favorite is KXLU – which is entirely funded by donations from its listeners. NO COMMERCIAL ADVERTISING WHATSOEVER

Aquarium Drunkard, in conjunction with the Echo, is holding its second all ages festival here in L.A. in Echo Park. Dubbed WAVED OUT, after Justin Gage’s favorite Robert Pollard solo album, this is the second recurring event featuring emerging national, local and international artists.
Where do the weeks go? Honestly. I can’t believe its already Friday.
I hope youve had a lovely week. Looking for some action this weekend? Why not check out our new Concert Calendar and figure out your weekend show-hopping schedule.
While you’re getting ready to hit the town I strongly suggest downloading and listening to Twin Sister‘s track “Lady Daydream” off their EP Color Your Life.
The band are selling the EP themselves on their bandcamp page. All I can say is it’s absolutely FLAWLESS. Twin Sister will be coming through Southern California next month on tour with The Morning Benders and Cults playing the Henry Fonda Theatre Oct 14th.
HERE’S YOUR WEEKEND SHOW SCHEDULE LOS ANGELES! HOPE TO SEE YOU OUT AND ABOUT!
WET & RECKLESS
“edgy girl-group stylings lean toward the punk and pointed rather than the pretty and predictable” – Kevin Bronson, BuzzbandsLA
“While all manner of Williamsburg girls have been prancing around in 60?s pop princess costumes (and while Dum Dum Girls are humorlessly doing a more grown-up version of the same thing here in LA), Wet & Reckless have taken a broader, less musically strict (read:”more fun”) approach…who says an all-girl band has to hide behind a curtain of fuzz and harmonies? And besides, us rockists need an answer to all this throwback girl group business.” – Classical Geek Theatre
Biffy Clyro create a mind-boggling mix of off-kilter tempos, itchy, unpredictable guitars, soulful choruses and feral screams, sewn together into a strange tapestry of sound. Biffy’s ranks grew exponentially when ‘Puzzle’ came along and stunned listeners with its achingly personal, rich and complex take on rock anthems, and Simon, James and Ben found themselves playing Wembley Stadium with Muse, headlining the John Peel Stage at Glastonbury and gigging with The Rolling Stones.
“… power to invoke full arenas of people to sing in unison with their hooky choruses and to withstand such a booming volume that it will bring visible blood to the ears.” – Daytrotter
