Pigeon John doesn’t play any “acoustic” business, but he still came up to our studios and rocked some live hip-hop with his DJ. It’s the kind of stuff that will get your head nodding and your brain smiling…I mean if a brain can smile that is.
Honeycut features the soulful stylings of one Mr. Bart Davenport. Damn this band can dance their socks off! Watch for yourself.
Jonny Lives invaded our studio and all we got was this stupid performance. Actually, it was the opposite of stupid. It was awesome. See them play "Outside."
The best part of watching a news anchor lose it live, is the fact that they have to maintain composure.
We love the look on his face after he realizes what he does. "Maybe if I stand really still and smile everyone will forget what just happened". Know the name of your TV station buddy....
Art Alexakis of Everclear stopped by our grungy studio to record a few songs, one of them being this cover of "Brown Eyed Girl" by Van Morrison. Also, Art has awesome tattoos.
Goldenboy have been creating quite a name for themselves in the SoCal area. That’s Southern California for all you people not “in the know.” Their latest record, Underneath The Radio, is out now on Eenie Meenie and hopefully they’ll be in your town soon. Enjoy!
Sierra Swan was the first Live at Liquid Generation performance that featured only vocals and a piano. Guitars are soooo overrated.
This is probably one of the best covers we have heard at the Live at LG Acoustic sessions and it’s a perfect fit for Limbeck. If you have never heard the original by The Byrds, well, then you should just be ashamed of yourself!
For those of you in the know, this is a rare acoustic performance from Dinosaur Jr.'s J Mascis playing the new single from the new record Beyond.
Limbeck are a band from the Los Angeles area, or to be more specific Orange County. They play a brand of classic California rock the way it used to be done back in the 70s. I have had a chance to see the band live a couple of times and their new self-titled record is one of my favorites of 2007. It’s the kinda music that makes you want to have a BBQ!
Western States Motel are from Los Angeles, CA and have a sound reminiscent of early Shins, especially when they stripped it down for us live at Liquid Generation. When they are huge remember where you heard them first!
When Husky Rescue came by the LG Studio we didn't think they'd make us cry with this song. But they did! It is so moving we cried rivers of tears! They're a better Finlandia export than vodka!
This track is an acoustic version of the first track off of the Mezzanine Owls debut album called Slingshot Echoes. We love it when a band comes in and does a version of a song that’s a lot different from the studio recording. After you listen to the Live at LG version head over to their site to hear the original.
Local rockers The Oohlas dropped by the studio for a stripped down version of their international smash hit “Small Parts.:
The Finalist dropped by the studio very early in the morning to play a song for us. Musicians don’t like mornings, so that goes to show you the dedication of these lads. Keep an eye open for the floating mic…it’s awesome.
