Patti Smith, the beloved godmother of punk, activist and poet, commands the utmost respect and attention from listeners, in her heyday and still today. Today, Smith remains a contemporary influence but hails from a past that is pure vintage gold. One of the most influential figures in punk rock and beyond, songs like “Because The Night” and “Horses” have been staples for the many artists who have followed her.
Peter Hook & the Light are getting ready to kill two nights at the Theater At Ace Hotel in downtown Los Angeles on Thursday September 8th and Friday September 9th in honor of Joy Division: A Celebration. The band formed by bassist, songwriter and author Peter Hook to celebrate and perform songs from his first two highly influential bands, Joy Division and New Order. Over the past decade, the band has thrilled audiences with epically long gigs exploring material from both seminal bands. These back-to-back nights at the Ace will be no different. Opening for Peter Hook on both nights will be El Ten Eleven.
Austin-Based Artist BLK ODYSSY AKA Juwan Elcock Just Released BLK VINTAGE: THE COVER, a 6-song extension to his debut album. With moving words that exclude raw life experience, BLK ODYSSY is a project driven by liberation. Creating soft music that details his experience as a black musician, BLK ODYSSY has created beautiful works of sound and verse that speak volumes and tell a story we all need to hear. Eimaral Sol will open the show.
The project by French-Korean artist Claire Chicha, based in Los Angeles, has carved out a place for itself in the landscape of post-pop/alt-pop angst where pink glasses meet an apathetic tint. She’s been making waves since the release of her debut EP bonny. Singing in English and occasionally French, the spill tab creates layers of complexity in his music, capturing moods and moving them with careful prowess. With the release of their latest single “Splinter” and previous single “Sunburn”, it’s clear that Spill Tab is gearing up for something pretty awesome. Joining Spill Tab as supporting acts are of boy and Chloe Georges.

Swedish House Mafia is the trio made up of Steve Angello, Sebastian Ingrosso and Axwell.

Alejandro Aranda, better known by his stage name, scarypoolparty is a talented voice of this generation. The former American Idol finalist seems to draw from every source of inspiration he can find, fusing an eclectic but carefully tailored array of genres from rap and hip hop to classical music and music into “Los Angeles.” R&B. His ear for good writing compresses all of these styles into something you can’t quite describe, but definitely feel. His decisive yet distant delivery, deep voice, and gender spread have a Brother Ali-like spirit, but the background to these elements is a collage of Aranda’s own creation.
Kehlani has announced her Blue Water Road Tour with two concert dates in Los Angeles at the YouTube Theater on Saturday September 10 and Monday September 12. Rico Nasty and Destin Conrad support Kehlani as opening act. Bay Area-born, multi-platinum, two-time GRAMMY® Award-nominated singer Kehlani is a sight to see and hear live. We just saw the r&b singer live at Outside Lands and she effortlessly wowed fans with that silky vocals. Kehlani’s third album, blue water road is available now through Atlantic Records and can be streamed on all streaming platforms.
