Downtown After Dark: A Quick History of Local Nightlife, 6/24/13 – Los Angeles Downtown News

DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES - For those who hung out in Downtown Los Angeles in the 1990s, some common sights in 2013 are mindboggling. I’m talking about people on a Friday or Saturday night standing in line to get into places like Seven Grand or The Edison.

This is Downtown: Are people really waiting 20 minutes or longer to enter a bar or club so they can pay $12 for a drink and then hit on someone who probably won’t go home with them?

Read the rest here and see what Before and After Cedd Moses was like!

Music Monday: Hobart W. Fink July Residency At Casey’s Irish Pub

June 24th, 2013 — 3:54pm

Founded in 2012 by Jayk Gallagher, Hobart W Fink is slightly nerdy, ironic indie rock w a soupçon of grunge. With two lead singers, Gallagher and Marie Bollinger, the band blends touches of The Strokes, The Pixies, Interpol and Queens of The Stone Age, with such disparate influences as Elliott Smith, Nirvana, Ben Gibbard in a purposefully eclectic stew. The sound is characterized by layered vocal harmonies that emerge from gutsy garage rock. (Brendan Kelley on Bass, Luke Harvis on Lead Guitar, Byron Pagdilao on Drums.)

The band debuted at The Satellite, killed a residency at Lot 1, and has since played all over the greater LA area, packing rooms at The House of Blues, The Roxy, The Viper Room, The Echo, The Satellite, El Cid, The Silver Lake Lounge, Casey’s Irish Pub, The Airliner, Central SA+PC, Echo Country Outpost, Make Music Pasadena, Venice Music Crawl, and many more. They are releasing a debut EP in July. You can put all this to fact and see them live at Casey’s July 13th, 20th and 27th.
