  • International Pop Overthrow Returns to Los Angeles for 17th Straight Year

    23 Jul 2014 | 10:23 am
    From July 25 through August 3, the International Pop Overthrow – an annual janglefest featuring the latest in power-pop talent – returns to Los Angeles for its 17th year. IPO, as the event is affectionately known, remains the number-one showcase for global bands in the mode of Badfinger, Big Star, the Raspberries and Cheap Trick. Credit for its continued presence on the underground scene goes mainly to David Bash, the one-man operation who conceived IPO and continues to oversee its tiniest details without a trace of corporate sponsorship. Born in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., at the end of the…

The lineup had the producers from some of the best shows on TV — The Blacklist’s John Eisendrath, Grimm’s David Greenwalt, Chicago P.D. and Chicago Fire’s Matt Olmstead, and Jason Katims who oversees the family drama Parenthood, as well as the NBC comedy gem About A Boy.

  • The Zebra Affaire by Mark Fine

    BRAD AUERBACH
    15 Jul 2014 | 8:51 am
    In the best tradition of historical fiction, Fine has woven the story of several intriguing individuals into the larger fabric of a troubled time. In this case, a biracial couple’s story is at the center of late 1970s apartheid South Africa. Fine has a flair for detailed descriptions, whether it is the local 1976 Formula 1 race or the local record shop. In the latter instance, Rodriguez is tipped to become the most important musical artist in South Africa (although the author and astute readers know the Detroit native was virtually unknown everywhere else for decades). In order to explain…

    3 Jul 2014 | 3:53 pm
    This drink-soaked autobiography can stand tall and proud next to the spate of excellent rock and roll autobiographies, even if the author can’t. McLagan readily admits his shortcomings (height being a recurring theme), especially waiting too long to kick alcohol and drugs, but this ride through the classic era of rock is superb. His early love of the USA was not from any visits but from weekly cinema trips with his father to see American movies. McLagan finally reached these shores with a layover in San Francisco. The Small Faces were en route from a series of gigs Down Under. His eyes…

  • Haren aims to right the ship, lead Dodgers to series win

    22 Jul 2014 | 10:39 pm
    Ike Davis took the first step toward a big second half with a 3-for-5 night Tuesday, which included his sixth home run. Davis, who will likely earn his second straight start Wednesday against Dodgers right-hander Dan Haren, helped the Pirates even the series, and they'll send lefty Francisco Liriano to the hill in the rubber match.

    It’s time to begin the second half of the 2014 Major League Baseball season. The first half was a good one, though some teams might beg to differ. The action should only intensify from here on out as playoff races begin to take shape down the stretch. Contenders will emerge while pretenders will falter. There also figure to be some interesting individual award races in the second half, as several still are too close to call with most teams nearing the 100-game mark. It’s also always fun to see which players come out of nowhere and bust out following the All-Star break. Everyone…

    16 Jul 2014 | 6:07 pm
    by Ben Findlay   Last night in the 2014 MLB All-Star Game, Mike Trout finally won an MVP trophy over Miguel Cabrera. You might have missed it. The moment was overshadowed by Joe Buck giddily preparing Derek Jeter for his new position as baseball’s Brett Favre, by which I mean that one retired guy sportscasters bring up every game. Trout went 2 for 3 with a double and a triple and two RBIs–a fine performance, and I’m not here to diminish Trout’s baseball ability. I’m here to make the point that Miguel Cabrera is a scarier hitter than Mike Trout, and I…

For instance, here I have never lived in a house, but instead rented apartments for all of these five wonderful years. This has been a great experience for me and has lead me to start a letting agency, because I have seen how flowed the system of the already working companies was. There's just so much useless…

The film has now taken in over $700 million internationally. That’s Disney’s second release of 2014 to hit that mark, “Captain America: The Dark Soldier” did it in the first half of the year. Domestically, the film has only reached $228.8 million, a bit low if you ask me. But it has been a very weak year at the box office. Something I’m sure Disney and Marvel hope…

(Her thank-you notes, just so you know, are often very elaborate drawings.)While Paul Giamatti as John Adams was challenging his fellow pre-Revolutionary Bostonians to uphold the law despite really hating the British (he defends a group of Redcoats, gasp!), CC was asking lots of questions.Which president…
