Synopsis: Cage the Elephant Live from the Ryman features twenty-one new and reimagined performances of songs including “Whole Wide World”, “Shake Me Down”, “Ain’t No Rest for the Wicked”, “Trouble”, “Cigarette Daydreams” and more performed in a stripped down arrangement with a string quartet and percussion. Eighteen of the songs were from their past four albums plus three re imagined versions of existing songs. Said front man Matt Shultz about the inspiration behind the album: “Many times you’re adding sonic layers looking for something to hide behind, and what you don’t realize is that that vulnerability and that nakedness might be the most compelling and interesting thing about the song.”
Filmed in stunning HD quality in a remarkable 12 camera shoot, Live from the Ryman captures one of the world’s most exciting band’s in a completely unique setting.

Synopsis: From Donald Trump to World Cup—the traditional media narrative of Russia is far different from the what exists artistically deep inside. In Alt.Russia, the band Placebo charmingly bring you on their unexpected journey of Russia in this multi-award winning film that plays out like Anthony Bourdain for artists—as the band spends time with artists, architects, animators and musicians—embracing the country’s alternative creative culture and celebrating all it has to offer.
LA Rockers EASY are hard pretty damn hard to ignore. We got turned on to these guys from Ian who generally has a good sense about these things! Stay tuned. More to come on this front…
From their site…
At the end of 2016 the world seemed to be headed for a total meltdown. The Los Angeles hills were on fire, there we’re mass shootings in nightclubs, Zika virus, water crisis and worst of all somehow a television clown had been elected president. In the midst of these crisis’ a couple of jam sessions took place between Josh Landau from The Shrine and professional skateboarder Don “Nuge” Nguyen. They instinctively delved into heavy, psychedelic riffs that would last 30 minutes. On a weekend bender in New York City, Josh played an acoustic demo of a short, fast, 2 minute power pop sort of song titled “She Says Goodnight When She Wants To”. Deciding that this style would be something unexpected and totally fresh for both of them, when they returned home to Los Angeles they enlisted their regular wrecking crew of Jordan Jones on second guitar, Ben Brown on synth and Wilder Zoby on drums. Their debut show was a private festival in early 2017 hosted by photographer Atiba Jefferson titled “Last Night,” where they played alongside Future Islands, Animal Collective, Explosions in The Sky.

We first met Sundara Karma in 2017 at the Live4ever Media Lounge at SXSW and they quickly hit heavy rotation in our office. Oscar (Lulu) Pollack fronts the band as if his parents were David Bowie and Patti Smith. Musically, he’s an old soul from rock royalty. The band is extremely tight (they’ve been playing together longer than their years would suggest) and they sound as good live as they do on their records.
They played some incredible sets that year, and we were really happy to see them again at the Troubadour in LA. Here’s a tipsy pic from SXSW that first year. Oscar may be holding me up.
And here is the Live4ever interview from 2017… and below are some videos.
Sundara Karma are a band to know to say the very least.
Barely 30 seconds in and Pamela Des Barres has not so much name-dropped as chucked her diary on the table. I compliment the author of I’m With the Band – one of the all-time classic rock’n’roll memoirs – on her ornate necklace, and she says it used to belong to Psycho actor Janet Leigh. When I ask if she still has the jewellery gifted to her by Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page, she replies, bereft: “No, it was stolen, by a kleptomaniac married to one of the Beach Boys.”
Then, as we scan the menu in the rapidly busying Friday night dining room of an in-crowd Hollywood hotel, I idly enquire as to her dietary habits. “I haven’t eaten red meat for 45 years. I went with Don Johnson, one of my dudes,” she says of the then-future star of Miami Vice, “to the first vegetarian restaurant in LA. And I saw on the back of the menu how we get the red meat. And I was so appalled that I stopped that day.”
I’m With the Band, the classic confessional of Des Barres’s sexual and romantic escapades with a cacophony of rock stars, is republished in a 30th anniversary edition this month. In bracing detail, the woman born Pamela Miller in Reseda, California, details her high jinks on the Sunset Strip of late-60s and early-70s Los Angeles.

Ok, I’m pushing 70 and I’m doing pretty well. I was thinking earlier today, when I couldn’t sleep – look at this stuff I’m still doing! It’s pretty amazing, when I remember what I tried to imagine myself as at 70, it certainly wasn’t this. I’m very single and I’d like to meet someone who can deal with me. It takes a strong guy, really, someone pretty fearless.
The things that happen in I’m With The Band aren’t ‘now’, and people don’t quite understand that. I wanted to be there. And so people have got quite bored with my answers when they ask about consent and #MeToo, because they’re looking for some kind of new scandal. And it wasn’t like that for me. Someone the other day pointed out about Noel Redding leaving me downstairs – well, these things happen! He forgot, he was so stoned he forgot I was even down there. But, of course because I was young I took it very personally. I didn’t hold back in the book, I don’t hide disappointment. Everybody in this world has relationships that fall apart.

MICK Jagger has got “big stones” in his pants. A former groupie has lifted the lid on her sex romps with him.
And she claims that far from “getting no satisfaction”, like The Rolling Stones hit, he was a real stud between the sheets.Pamela Des Barres, right, said: “He has huge b***s.
“We made love for hours. I was dizzy. Mick personifies sex.”
Pamela, 69, who has also had flings with Jimmy Page, Don Johnson and Woody Allen as well as the late Keith Moon and Jim Morrison, has revealed all in a memoir called I’m With The Band.
It is now set to be turned into a movie.
And she would love to see One Direction star Harry Styles playing Jagger.Pamela said: “He has the look. Harry would be perfect.”
She also told how girls still write to her asking how to meet idols.
Pamela said: “I get e-mails from young girls who are like ‘How can I get near Jimmy Page?’
“They are 17. And he is 60 years older but it does not matter to them.”
