A Farewell To Indie 103.1

Indie 103.1 has been one of our favorite stations for a while. They’ve brought us amazing shows like THE SEX PISTOLS and are home to some of our favorite CAMP FREDDY guys. Always a pleasure to work with them in any capacity, and we are very sad to see them go. Quality music. Quality programming. And quality people. Special thanks to SCOTT DALLAVO, DANNY SWAY JACLYN KAJZER, MARK SOVEL, TK, NATIVE WAYNE, JONESY – and the rest of our pals. Luckily, we can continue to listen online at indie1031.com but we already miss it on our dial. Thanks for everything!

SexPistols Live At The Roxy

Crytsal Castles Gets Some MTV Love

Crystal Castles Live at The Roxy
We’re still recovering from the Crytsal Castles mania – and apparently MTV is too!
Check out the review of the show!

Laws of economics (stay with me here) state that scarcity creates value, and Crystal Castles’ anonymity as the anti-rockstars only made me desperately want to know everything about them. You’ll be hard-pressed to find clear photos of either member, they shoot down any suggestions of fame, and they always understate their own popularity.

But on the other hand, they did add another Roxy show two nights later due to overwhelming demand, and they are also the newest group to enter the ring up against the big record labels. You can find a full quality, fully tagged and fully free mp3 of “Crimewave” for download on Nine Inch Nails’ Web site. After my encounter with Crystal Castles, it’s clear that they’re a shining example of a band that is truly in it for the music. Expect much more from Crystal Castles in the upcoming months, because whether they like it or not, they’re going to be huge.

Crystal Castles Craziness

Crystal Castles is getting ready to take over the Roxy and we’re very excited! They are kicking off the first sold out show tonight – and we were happy to announce earlier in the week that a SECOND show had been added for Friday. We can’t encourage you enough to get tickets SOON – thru the box office at 310 278 9457. Also, so far we’re gotten some amazing contest entries – and remember, the lucky winners will really do it up in style at Friday’s show (check out the details here)! Show us what you’ve got!

Farewell To Freddy

The month of Camp Freddy Mayhem has become this Rock N Roll machine that has been the talk of the town! It’s taken over like no one could have ever imagined. It started off great as we were so excited to be able to hold one of our Roxy contests to find the lucky openers – which allowed local bands to actually warm up the stage for Freddy. What a great opportunity. And now, we’ve had FIVE sold out shows – countless special guests – and killer set lists. Over the past 4 weeks, we’ve seen Tommy Lee, Terry Nunn, Chester of Linkin Park, Brandon Boyd of Incubus, Chino of the Deftones, Jerry Cantrell, Lemmy Kilmister, B-Real and Sen Dog, Tiffany, Metal Skool, Cory from Slipknot/Stone Sour, Tom Morrello as well as our house favorite Mark McGrath – to name a few! On top of the Sex Pistols Paul Cook, Glen Matlock and Steve Jones and GnR legends Duff and Slash! Insanity. We hate to rub it in, because the Freddy Finale tonight is of course sold out – but for the lucky, this show will take the cake! Every Thursday the chaos starts early – so make sure you stay tuned as Nic and I twitter the day away. We’ll keep you updated as always, on all the nitty gritty secrets. Thanks to all the guests and the guys – as well as the fans who have made the Roxy their nightlife staple for the month. We hope to see you all soon.

Fun with Freddy

The Metal Skool(Steel Panther) guys made a welcomed return to The Roxy to do a cameo with Camp Freddy. It rocked.

The Roxy Does The Robot

A sweet dance AND a sweet band. IMA ROBOT is definitely one of our favorite bands here at The Roxy – mostly because we love any band that turns the room into one HUGE party – and IMA ROBOT never fails. If you’ve never seen them…now is the time! And for all you IMA ROBOT vets, bring your dancing shoes!

The Sex Pistols Did You No Wrong

The Roxy is no stranger to mind blowing shows – but the show last night with The Sex Pistols, has got to be near the top of our list! It seemed so fittting to have them on our stage – the original punk rockers – and Johnny Rotten still knows how to hold it down. With it being their first show in 4 years, AND their only US date, we just have to say how honored we are to have had them here. Thanks to everyone who made it possible! And to all those fans who were lucky enough to witness history – thanks for rocking out with us!

Roxy Roadtrip Detour’d Downtown

Thanks to the LA Weekly, to Goldenvoice, to all the bands, artists and djs that rocked the streets of Downtown LA. And special thanks to all of our good friends (new and old) that stoped by our booth. You made Detour a blast. The Roxy Crew had a great time hanging at our tent that was disguised as a pink disco lounge. We handed out free tickets, stickers and, most popular, our homemade Pink Glowsticks to the thousands of smiling, happy, music loving people. It reminds me that sometimes you need to get out of the office and hit the road, even if it’s just to Downtown. Can’t wait for next year. Please feel to post your own pictures from Detour below.

Heather, Bobby, Annie, Young Josh, Megan, Scottie and Trev, You all deserve a double clap. Thanks Guys!
