Death Cab for Cutie

"Grapevine Fires" was initially inspired by DCFC vocalist/guitarist Ben Gibbard's up-close-and-personal encounter with 2007's California wildfires. The song - which was recently included on "Change Is Now: Restoring America's Promise," the official commemorative CD-DVD set celebrating President Barack Obama's historic inauguration - motivated Walter Robot to create an animated short film which bri...

The Airborne Toxic Event
When The Airborne Toxic Event took the stage at Spaceland in Silver Lake on January 31st of this year, the 400-capacity venue was a madhouse.

It was the final night of the band's five-week residency at the legendary Eastside venue, and all that month, when they weren't rehearsing or performing, they were busy self-recording their first full-length a...

Cold War Kids
Cold War Kids – Matt Aveiro (drums) , Matt Maust (bass), Jonnie Russell (guitar), Nathan Willett (vocals/piano) – began in the fall of '04 with jangly guitar, handclaps, and a Harmony amp in a storage room atop a restaurant in Fullerton, CA. Using songs of Dylan, Billie Holiday, and the Velvet Underground as a road map, they listened to their tiny inner voice to manipulate and structure their honest musical style. In 2005/2006 Cold War Kids self-released three six song EP's (Mulberry Street, Up in Rags, and With our Wallets Full) and toured relentlessly, sometimes with compadres Tapes ‘n Ta...
