I see a lot of scattered "I saw so-and-so live at the blah-and-blah" across the boards, but couldn't find any general topic of discussion. I searched, so please forgive me if it exists somewhere. Talk about the shows you just went to or are about to attend. Anything and everything is fair game. Did you pick anything cool up or meet the artists? I'm seeing Tim Kasher tomorrow night and pretty excited.
The Black Donnellys - Four young Irish brothers are caught up in New York's underworld of organized crime. Canceled after 1 season, and it ended on a huge cliff hanger + Olivia Wilde, how dare they! Magic City - Centers on Miami mobsters and other characters from Miami Beach in the late 1950s. Recently canceled by Starz, according to the CEO is was too expensive to shoot. Damn shame, this show had great actors, beautiful aesthetics, and a great story. Hung - A former high school sports legend turned middle-aged high school basketball coach finds a way to benefit from his biggest asset. Man-whorin', it was a very funny and goofy show. It got 3 seasons but could have gotten at least 2 more solid ones. Pun intended. Happy Endings - ABC's comedy sees a couple break up at the altar, and follows the fallout that affects their group of friends. This show started off as a dumpy rom-com show, but evolved into a chaotic really funny multicam comedy in the vain of Community, and where New Girl is going. Speaking of which, Community will also be missed... (http://tvline.com/2014/05/09/community-cancelled-nbc-season-6/). Clone High (animated) - The greatest minds of the world have been cloned and are now attending high school together. Canceled after 1 season, and it still holds up well! Plus Abandoned Pools did the theme song. What are some shows you feel were axed far too soon or ones you'd hope someone like Netflix could bring back to life?
Just watched this rad documentary about backyard shows in East LA, figured some of you would be interested. (Fuck yeah, Vimeo embeds so much easier than youtube!) They come from all over the greater Los Angeles area-- Boyle Heights, El Sereno, Lynwood, Santa Clarita, etc.--from diverse family backgrounds, seeking out the underground pop-up punk shows that make up the "East Los" backyard scene. Straight-up punk, metal, horror ska, oi and psychobilly are all in the mix and, while the music is diverse, its aggressive approach is a constant. There's always a mosh pit. TV, radio, gossip columns and Internet memes don't support this scene: It must be sought out, specifically, and for a variety of reasons. This is a simple D.I.Y., research- required, no bullshit, anti-establishment, fuck the system, off the wall approach and exactly what kids attending these shows need to feel like they belong. Each character is his or her own person, an individual with their own personal experiences, history, likes and dislikes. The one thing that brings them all together, that creates a sense of family, is the East L.A. backyard scene. Full Episodes: http://livingoffthewall.vans.com/east-los/#1
