At the time we did not know who the indie Los Angeles band was but, since then we have come to love their sound. We were also impressed at the time that even just playing in front of a tire warehouse store they were able to attract a large crowd.

  • The Mormons – Preaching Punk To The Masses

    The Mormons – Preaching Punk To The Masses

    True to their name, these Eagle Rock-based punk rockers actually perform in the missionary attire of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints — complete with white dress shirts, black slacks and ties, backpacks and, to surreal effect, bicycle helmets.

    Metrogum Episode – Indie Music It’s Alive

    After much toiling deep in the depths of the lab. Our musically mad scientists have created a new web series experiment called The Metrogum Music Scene.  With corporate radio  killing off  the awesome indie rock stations that we love  little by little  (you know which ones) the music landscape is becoming a barren desert of top 40 music on a loop.  We hope to be a bit of an oasis where indie  and great music can be heard and seen.
