This weekend was packed with tons of great shows to go to. We started out with LA Folk Fest’s Murder Ballad night on Tuesday but the spookiness and craziness continued for us. If you aren’t the raving type or just didn’t manage to get tickets to HARD Haunted Mansion this year, you would have had as much fun if not more at The Henry Clay People‘s annual Rock and Roll Circus on Friday night. Perfect for Halloween weekend, the 14-band mini festival at The Echo and The Echoplex was an intriguing swirl of musicians and fans all dressed up in costumes and appropriately soaking up the booze along with the songs.
Without a minute wasted in silence, there were bands even playing in the Echoplex lounge and out on the patio in between sets. There were was also popcorn and games set up making it a truly bizarre but fun night. We were there to capture as much as we could for you. Check our photo gallery out below!

The annual Sunset Junction is in full swing this weekend and we were there to capture all the music during its first day on Saturday. As usual, the sun out in full effect making us who don’t handle the heat too well be a bit more cautious about beverage intake (that’s not water) during the day. However, that was a bit hard to do when they added a VIP section near the Bates stage.
Things seemed to run a bit smoother both behind the scenes (in regards to checking in) and the fair even added another stage that was locals only. Sponsored by The Fold, the new stage at Edgecliff was one we frequented the most since we’re absurdly in love with our local music scene. Experience Sunset Junction on Saturday through our eyes via our photos below!

8 Years — that’s how long Andy Clockwise (aka Andy Kelly) has been leaving his footprint in the music industry. He went from being homeless to becoming an international indie rocker after trading his music producing skills for a couch to sleep on. While helping one of his friends produce her EP in exchange for a roof over his head, he simultaneously recorded his own EP, pressed it, and sent it in to the Triple J Radio Station in Australia. He’s been touring ever since.

Andy Clockwise played Bardot this weekend and out of all the three acts we’ve seen there so far, they seemed to fit the atmosphere the best. Fronted by Andy Kelly, the band’s repertoire offered a diverse set suited for all those out on a Hollywood kind of night. They, too, used the spacious yet intimate room to their advantage as Kelly climbed banisters, topped couches, went out into the audience and got a little more than just personal.
