Music Friday Live

Mucho baile at Gran Performances with Buyepongo and Sidestepper leading the dance.

July 26, 2017

    Patrick O’Heffernan (Los Angeles) It was dance, dance, dance with  LA-based polyrhythmic cumbia-rock-funk-merengue band Buyepongo and electroacústica Columbian music group Sidestepper.   Both dance pavilions at the California Plaza were elbow to elbow with writhing crowds that spilled over into the VIP seats and the picnic areas, rocking out to music that just wouldn’t let you stay seated.  The hugely popular and resolutely community oriented Buyepongo was  exactly in their element at the free Grand Performances concert series,  which has been called “a grand gift to the public.” by the Los Angeles Times. Those were their people dancing – Latinos, Asians, blacks, gringos — the spicy rainbow mashup that exults in the dynamic culture jumble of Los Angeles.   Buyepongo has played major venues and motivated crowds on both coasts and around the world, sharing stages with bands like Quantic in the UK, Ondatropica in Colombia, Ozomatli, Booker T and Cut Chemist and Sharon Jones in the US, Celso Piña in Mexico,  and many others. But all the world tours were forgotten Friday night; [Read More]

The set not only included many of their early tracks but fan favorites, as well as a wide selection from their extensive catalog. Fans were dancing around and singing along.

Spotlight is on Don Broco and their new single / video for Technology

July 25, 2017

We are bringing our spotlight on the UK band Don Broco. They recently released their new single and video for the track Technology. The video is an awesome one as it is a great commentary for today’s social media addictive society. Can someone be so absorbed with their smartphone that they miss an entire alien invasion? Speaking about the video, frontman Rob Damiani says, “We’re all addicted to our phones, so for the video we thought it would be fun to see if an alien invasion was enough for us to put the phones down for a minute… turns out it’s not. The song is about a casual swipe through Instagram that ended up in me unfollowing a load of mates. In reality my friends are not vain, self-obsessed, PDA-loving show-offs so I’m blaming social media and the habitual nature of sharing every waking moment of your life online.”   Fans will be able to immerse themselves in the ‘Technology’ experience with the interactive release of Technology – The Video Game through donbroco.com and the IOS and Android [Read More]
