Following last weekend's surprise Rolling Stones show, The Echo and Echoplex continued BritWeek festivities last night with a performance from English electro-pop artist Little Boots, and supporting acts Avan Lava and Feathers presented by IHEARTCOMIX. As a "Go See A Show" featured act, we were psyched to get down to this tiny songstress, who packs some serious pipes and high-energy stage presence.
With rampant FOMO this past weekend over the nearly impossible-to-get-into unbelievable show at the Echoplex by one and only rock legends, The Rolling Stones, you my need a little boost and we have just what you're looking for. With a Stones show at The Staples Center to kick off their "50 and Counting" tour, you can get your fill of Mick, Keith, Charlie and Ronnie in the flesh. And the fun doesn't end there, with many other shows featuring artists like The Killers, Pyyramids and and Little Boots to see this week to cover your live music fix. We've gathered all the best ones happening in the area for you in this handy guide, so grab a friend, a lover, or just roll solo and go see a show!
To the heartbreak, dismay, and in some cases unbridled outrage, of thousands (including yours truly) who had waited for hours in a line they would learn was meaningless when it was revealed ticket winners would be drawn from a lottery, The Rolling Stones played a surprise show Saturday night at the Echoplex for an incredibly lucky 700 or so fans. For a measly $20/ticket, guests including Johnny Depp, Gwen Stefani, Bruce Willis and the Olsen twins enjoyed the greatest rock band of all time play an intimate hour-and-20-minute set of blues covers and hits just ahead of Friday's "50 and Counting" tour kickoff show at STAPLES. Although strict rules explicitly prohibited cell phones and photography of any kind inside the venue, several were smuggled in and we have the photos of the band rocking to prove it.
If you have plans to go out of town early next month, cancel them immediately. We are doing cartwheels of joy in the office to report the big news teased in those recent "Start Me Up Wednesday" (as in, TODAY) hype campaign billboards and social media updates: at long last, The Rolling Stones have announced a nine-city "50 and Counting" North American tour set to kick off right here in Los Angeles at the STAPLES Center early NEXT MONTH. The exact date of the L.A. show is TBD, depending on the NHL playoffs schedule, but it will almost certainly be between May 1st-4th. SATISFACTION, indeed. More»

This week it was announced the Sunset Strip's legendary Key Club will close its doors for good next Friday, March 15th. As a farewell, the club has been hosting gigs of some of its favorite artists this week and has promised its last night will be nothing short of legendary. With the shutter of the famous club, the Strip loses one of its main stages for musical acts that have been rocking the stretch of boulevard since the '60s. Even before its current iteration, the venue played a huge role in launching acts like The Doors, Van Halen, Guns N' Roses and loads of other rock and hair metal bands since opening as Gazzarri's in the late '60s. As we prepare to say goodbye, here's a look at its evolution and the memorable performances and highlights it enjoyed during its tenure as one of the main hubs in Sunset Strip's awesome rock history.
