Casey’s Irish Pub – Downtown/Union
LA’s indie-driven rock band, Downtown/Union, has been a regular fixture in local music scene since 2006. Although the band has been through many incarnations, from a stripped down two-piece to a bombastic seven member rock n’ roll gang, principle song writers, B. Bory and Jeff Electric, have always managed to consistently churn out catchy, high powered, heartfelt songs. This time around, the band has solidified its ranks by adding new permanent members, bass guitarist, Andy Bartlett, and veteran guitar wielder, John Klein, to the lineup, giving them a renewed sense of purpose, energy, and focus; not to mention a whole new batch of tunes.

Caña Rum Bar – Native Wayne
Tonight Grammy-winning reggae luminary Wayne Hobson, also known as Native Wayne to his Indie 103 fans, will be behind the wheels of steel bringing us the good vibes via an eclectic set of classic reggae, dancehall, afrobeat, and whatever else he deems worthy of your listening pleasure. It’s Friday night, so if you’d like to ensure yourself a table or bring more than three guests, reservations are necessary. Right near the beach… Boyyyyyyyyyy!

Casey’s Irish Pub – Modern Time Machines
Modern Time Machines’ blend of gauzy space rock atmospherics plus pop songwriting sensibility that has drawn comparisons to Sonic Youth, Medicine, and Silversun Pickups, yet they have crafted their own unique, distinctive sound. MTM combine ’60s psychedelia, boy/girl vocal harmonies, feedback-laced love songs and yes, time travel, into a riotous melange of beautiful noise.

Mix This: Mon Amie

April 4th, 2012 — 3:56pm


Mon Amie
.5 – P.F. 1840 Cognac
.5 – Bulleit Rye
1.0 – Campari
1.0 – Antica Vermouth
- Stir and strain on big rock in old fashioned glass. Flame and discard lemon twist.

Borrowing from Boulevardier this is one of my all-time favorite drinks; The rare cocktail of ours I fix for myself at a night’s end. Our house cognac, Pierre Ferrand 1840 is unlike 99.8% of its peers as it clocks in at 90 proof and can stand with damn near any other spirit and retain its character. Bulleit’s rye is often mistaken for its forebearers. This stuff is Canadian in origin, and thusly much softer than the dominant grain in fireplug ryes like Rittenhouse and Wild Turkey, or “The Kickin’ Chicken” as it’s known in my house. So pairing it with Cognac was an easy mark. It’s a great drink for making friends too, if ya know what I mean.
