Stars at The Glass House
Everyone is aware of Los Angeles' size as a city. Thus, it should go without saying that there is plenty to do in the City of Angels. We've got a wealth of music in the local scene and as you can see, plenty of venues to host the talent of these bands. However, going the extra mile to see a show can be so much more than just worth it--even if it means driving out 40 minutes to Pomona's Glass...

Metric at Lollapalooza 2010
Lollapalooza's first day may have had Lady Gaga, but day 2 was jam packed with artists whether you were a huge electronica head, an indie rocker or Bayside ska kid. We knew we definitely had our day cut out for us but with Grant Park's massive size for a festival, we must have walked miles as we rushed to see band after band. Some big names that got us warmed up for the...

Watch: Stars Live At The Troubadour
Canadian band, Stars, graced the stage of The Troubadour last night in Los Angeles and they have another show tonight. However, both shows are sold out. We know one thing though. If you're free for the night, trying to get into a show like this is well-worth it. Even if there's a slim chance of getting in tonight, we still say go for it. Although we didn't get any footage...

Break-ups blow. Even if you've parted on good terms, they still pretty much suck. All the reminiscing you do... alone. Everything you see is a reminder that screams, "EX!"
