Joyce Manor (January 20, 2018. LA Union Station)

Joyce Manor

On a cool Saturday evening,  hundreds of people headed to Union Station in Los Angeles. But it wasn’t just to access the hub and head off somewhere (well… not unless you were one of the thousands participating in the Women’s March earlier that day)… The Los Angeles landmark played host to 2 fully packed Joyce Manor shows!

The Early November/ The Movielife (the Troubadour. October 4, 2017)

The Early November

Ace Enders of the Early November mentioned before their set that they were taking us back to 2003 and all of a sudden a spark of energy lit up. I wasn’t worried about the show ending around midnight or that I’d only get 3 hours of sleep. Music has that kind of power.
