Reignwolf is one of those bands I’m shocked was off my radar, but luckily the Orange Peel newsletter alerted me before I missed them. Jordan Cook looks and plays like a wildman and he’ll be shredding at the Peel tonight with his band.

Rolling Stone named them one of the “10 New Artists You Need to Know" back in January.

If you haven’t had enough rock ‘n roll by the end of the night, you can catch Yonatan Gat, of the legendary Israeli garage rockers Monotonix, at the Mothlight.

After watching the three Lawrence Rothman videos I expected a spectacle on stage of costumes and makeup, but all the audience got was brief glimpses of this mysterious character. The set was brief and beautiful but the artist is no less of a mystery now than before.

As happens more often than not, I am most intrigued to see the opener instead of the headliner. Lawrence Rothman may have been born in the midwest, but seems belong in his new home Los Angeles. He has only released three songs each accompanied by haunting, high-concept videos by director Floria Sigismondi (The Runaways). All of the songs are chilling minimalist R&B jams that defy convention.

Stay tuned for a review of his live performance with Little Dragon tonight at The Orange Peel. There are only a handful of tickets left for the show so act fast.

 

It’s a bold move for a band to line the front of the stage with four guitarists, but what do you expect from a band named Diarrhea PlanetThese six guys from Nashville rocked The Mothlight last night with numerous shredding guitars none of which felt excessive.
