Amid writing and deadlines, I'm channeling my inner '90s riot grrrl (flashback to seeing invincible Bikini Kill at age 15 at Hollywood's Las Palmas Theatre) and listening to Sleater-Kinney before seeing them play tomorrow night at the Palladium, home to so many shows I went to back then. It's been 10 years since I last saw Sleater-Kinney unleash a rock 'n' roll roar. Words and guitar, finally.

At the 9:30 Club, the band obliterated its own timeline by demonstrating a catalog that is always present, always on fire.

Days, weeks, months leading up to this. AP reports that Hillary Clinton will launch her much anticipated 2016 presidential campaign this Sunday. I'm curious who will quickly follow suit.

"Stand By Me" is one of the most gorgeous, tear-inducing classic songs that came out of the early 1960s, with Ben E. King's soulful voice seared into our collective music brain. It will, thankfully, live on forever. RIP King. 
NEW YORK (AP) - Ben E. King, the unforgettable lead singer for the Drifters and a solo star whose plaintive baritone graced such pop and rhythm 'n blues classics as "Stand by Me," ''There Goes My Baby" and "Spanish Harlem," has died. King died Thursday at age 76, publicist Phil Brown told The Associated Press on Friday. Brown did not immediately have other details. A native of North Carolina, King was singing with the Five Crowns when he and his ...

Film fans and fans of German Expressionist film should check out LACMA's "Haunted Screens: German Cinema in the 1920s," which ends in a few weeks, on April 26. Dave and I finally went recently and really enjoyed it. Drawings, posters, photos, film clips. Expressionist directors such as Fritz Lang fled Germany for Hollywood in the early '30s after the Nazis gained power. Experimental, beautifully filmed in high contrast black and white and framed by warped, jagged sets, these movies - eg. "M," "Nosferatu," "The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari" - are incredible.
