Live Review: METZ with Big Ups at Neumos 8/4/15

If there were baseball cards for Sub Pop bands, Toronto hardcore band METZ would be the 1.0 benchmark for live performance batting average. They just don’t make ‘em like METZ every day. No matter where they play, whether it be a massive festival stage (like Sub Pop’s own Silver Jubilee several years ago) or anRead more…

Live Review: Tanlines with Mas Ysa at Neumos 7/8/15

After showing off one of the most refreshing album rollouts in recent history (see: fake websites, conference calls, and blockbuster billboards), synth pop duo Tanlines don’t seem to be running out of ways to up the ante on tour. Eric Emm and Jesse Cohen brought a rock-heavy four piece setup to Neumos on Tuesday night,Read more…

Live Review: Dan Deacon with Prince Rama & Ben O’Brien at Neumos 5/8/15

For Friday night’s Neumos crowd, reality became something entirely separate from what we knew it to be. The night’s headliner, Canadian electronic wunderkind Dan Deacon, bends the strings that we dangle by enough on his own, but combined with the dystopian shimmer of New York synth rock act Prince Rama and the 21st century AmericanRead more…

Live Review: Liturgy and Lightning Bolt at Neumos 4/28/15

Some shows, I’m seriously surprised when I exit Neumos after the set’s over and am not witnessing irreparable damage running up and down the walls. Tuesday night, label-mates Liturgy and Lightning Bolt played one of those types of sets. When there’s one guy in the front row that doesn’t have earplugs and three people aroundRead more…

Live Review: Ibeyi with Flo Morrissey at Neumos 4/5/15

There was a very distinct moment at the Ibeyi show last Sunday night where the energy for the evening turned from simply good to really, really great. It happened during the duo’s explosive self-titled album single “River“, the song most well known by the world and easily the most far reaching in its execution. AsRead more…

Live Review: Ariel Pink with Jack Name at Neumos 2/10/15

Where do you draw the line between the man Ariel Rosenberg and Ariel Pink, the rock icon and sex god character he’s brewed up to give to all of us over the last 15 years? That’s not a rhetorical question – honestly, I couldn’t tell you. I don’t think there’s a good answer. But thenRead more…

Live Review: Nils Frahm with Dawn of Midi at Neumos 11/06/2014

When I’ve seen Nils Frahm in the past, it’s been during Decibel Festival, an annual electronic music and visuals festival in Seattle which KEXP covers every year. Because of the event’s interest in creative collaborations, Frahm has been given ample attention to look and sound his best, often paired with projections from visual artists. TheRead more…

Live Review: Cloud Nothings with METZ and The Wytches at Neumos 7/3/14

Thursday night before 4th of July at Neumos, you could tell who watched the show from the safety of the balcony from those on the floor strictly based on the quantity of sweat dripping from their clothes upon leaving the premises. I can’t speak much for the casual observers above, but between the handful ofRead more…

Live Review: Warpaint with James Supercave at Neumos 5/2/2014

When a crowd is truly, ruthlessly in love with the band they are about to see, you can tell from the moment they walk in the room. You don’t see it often, but when it happens, it’s a spectacle that you wouldn’t trade the world for. Friday night’s show with Warpaint at Neumos had oneRead more…

Live Review: Shlohmo with D33J and Jim E Stack at Neumos 4/26/14

As the business model for the 21st music industry continues to shift and evolve, more and more artists are forming small, independent collectives, compiling funds between the group to make distribution easier to take on financially, but keeping ownership and obligations independent. One of the best examples you’ll see of this on the West CoastRead more…
