Attaloss – Hollywood, CA
Living in Hollywood and seeing bands perform day in and day out for the last 10 years has surely turned a person like myself, into a very jaded â€œjust kill me nowâ€ jerk when it comes to live shows and the whole music scene here. It seems like all I do now is focus on what the bands are doing wrong on stage and never on what they are doing right.
Last week, I was walking by the Viper Room during my normal routine (painful) of checking out bands on The Sunset Strip..when I heard something amazing leaking thru the walls and out onto the sidewalkâ€¦I quickly scrambled into the venue so I wouldnâ€™t miss anymore of the show. Once in, I was treated to a near perfect live showâ€¦trust me that I tried to find a ton of problemsâ€¦but couldnâ€™t. Was I watching a signed band? Where did this band come from? Why didnâ€™t I already know about them? Â All these questions flooded my brain all at onceâ€¦how can a band at this performance level and song quality not be signedâ€¦especially being in Label-Land? Where are the label reps?
In closing, all I gotta say is WTF?
