Valley Queen. December 6, 2018. El Rey Theatre. Hollywood, CA. . . Review and more photos coming soon to @thepopbreak ! . . More and more every day I'm reminded why it's important to constantly be around, worth with, and listen to women. So often I see strong female voices become silenced, disregarded, and painted with broad, negative strokes instead of earnest, insightful ones. @valleyqueenmusic took the time to notice how many women were in the audience at the @elreytheatre the other night, after spending a whole tour mostly playing to men alongside Social Distortion. We need more moments like that. We need more women. We need more freedom.

Forgot to post earlier! We did a group piece of our favorite non-traditional #Christmas movies. Of course, I will forever pick #NightmareBeforeChristmas at any chance I get for favorite movie choice. #tistheseason #thepopbreak #movies

Rett Madison. December 6, 2018. El Rey Theatre. Hollywood, CA. . . More pics and review coming soon to @thepopbreak ! . . I saw @rettmadison several nights ago and I'm still thinking about her performance. She has a song called "God Is A Woman" that's better than Ariana's tbh, and her voice on it is unbelievable. Her soundcloud only has a couple of tracks, but they can barely contain her monumental voice, heartfelt lyrics, and fullbodied soul. Here's to more queer women doing something real in the LA music scene πŸ₯‚.

Got to play the flute for a Bone and Marrow set in the Grand Arcade of Asbury Parks Convention Hall last night. The flute sounds super cool in huge rooms. Thanks Pop Break! @thepopbreak #thepopbreak @asburyparkconventionhall #asburyparkconventionhall #anchorsbend @theanchorsbend #boneandmarrowmusic @boneandmarrowmusic
One hell of a show last night! Thank you to the amazing performers who rocked the house, @mattmcandrewmusic , @rachelanadobken , @boneandmarrowmusic , @mikeypellegrinz , and @taylorallenusa ! We truly appreciate all of our friends, family, and readers who attended last night, plus those who donated to our toy-drive!

Lauren Ruth Ward. December 6, 2018. El Rey Theatre. Hollywood, CA. . . Review and more photos coming soon to @thepopbreak ! . . Hot damn, @laurenruthward is out of this world. In fact, I sort of think she's out of this time. She's like a flower child that could kick your ass. A hippie that could mow you over. A Janis Joplin girl who knows exactly what she's doing. Also, she can wear the hell out of a fitted suit. A night of beautiful women, celebrating community in Los Angeles, and psychadelic trips!

Bambaata Marley. November 12, 2018. Fonda Theatre. Hollywood, CA. . . @bambaatamarley is really something else. Dude is the son of Ziggy Marley and grandson of the one and only Bob Marley. Need I say more? He opened for @garyclarkjr last month and the amount of soul in the @fondatheatre was unreal. If you're looking for something to move you on this rainy night in LA, pop in some Bambaata. He's got it. . . #bambaatamarley #bobmarley #ziggymarley #fondatheatre #hollywood #losangeles #LA #california #musicphotography #concertphotography #gigsphotography #liveshow #gigs #concert #concertphotographer #audioloveofficial #concertshot #singer #guitar #canon #canon77D #thepopbreak #blackandwhite #bnw #tbt #flashback #throwback

Gary Clark Jr. November 11, 2018. Fonda Theatre. Hollywood, CA. . . Review of show and more pics under Published Live Reviews in link in bio and live at @thepopbreak ! . . It's a chilly, chilly late night in LA, the stars are twinkling, and I just spent three hours sitting on a lush patio by candlelight chatting with an old friend. We talked about the world, joy, and soul. If anyone's in need of soul with a small dose of humanity, I recommend diving headfirst into @garyclarkjr. These are the small, almost imperceptible moments that stack up into small beautiful. These are the nights to remember. πŸ“| πŸ“Έ by @katgoestoshows ! . . #garyclarkjr #garyclarkjrlive #blackandblu #thestoryofsonnyboyslim #fondatheatre #hollywood #losangeles #LA #california #musicphotography #concertphotography #gigsphotography #liveshow #gigs #concert #concertphotographer #bestmusicshots #audioloveofficial #photopitforever #concertshot #singer #guitar #canon #canon77D #thepopbreak #latenight #review #guitargram #guitarsolo #ibanezguitars
Christmas came early last night at the Foundry with these adorable elves..AKA The Faim. This young Australian band won this Philly crowd over right away. It was an impressive set. The played a bunch of songs from their great debut EP, Summer is a Curse. All of it sounded "radio ready", definitely a contender for Breakout Artists of the Year!

Last week, I shot Cloak and Dagger Fest in LA and was so impressed by the small Aussie band @deathbells_. It feels surreal to say in 2018 that they straight up sound like The Smiths. Their live show felt intimate, atmospheric, and otherworldly. Would 100% recommend checking them out if you're into Morrissey, Joy Division, or any other dark post-punk forray. . πŸ“| πŸ“Έ by @katgoestoshows . #deathbells #cloakanddagger #cloakanddaggerfest #losangelestheatre #losangeles #LA #california #musicphotography #concertphotography #gigsphotography #liveshow #gigs #concert #concertphotographer #bestmusicshots #audioloveofficial #photopitforever #concertshot #singer #guitar #bass #drums #canon #canon77D #thepopbreak #festival #musicfestival #purple

The Struts. November 3, 2018. House of Blues. Anaheim, Orange County, CA. . . Review of show and more pics now live at @thepopbreak ! . . This show at the @hobanaheim was so special. Truly a rock 'n' roll affair that sliced out a chunk of time and became a surreal escape from the horrors of the outside world. The internal logic of a song by @thestruts feels big, loud, glitzy, scrappy, elevated, humble, sassy, and packs a mean punch. Sometimes, I wish I could climb into the world of music they create, but when I can't do that - I'll look at these photos. . . #thestruts #lukespiller #younganddangerous #houseofblues #anaheim #orangecounty #california #musicphotography #concertphotography #gigsphotography #liveshow #gigs #concert #concertphotographer #bestmusicshots #audioloveofficial #photopitforever #concertshot #singer #guitar #bass #drums #canon #canon77D #thepopbreak #rocknroll #blackandwhite #bnw

Energy was so high, their stage presence was through the roof, and the crowd was so ready to dance, sing, and cause a ruckus. I got to hear "Bulletproof Baby" and "She's in Love with a Camera" - two of my favorite new tracks off their record "Young and Dangerous" - not to mention a cover of "Dancing in the Dark" that involved @lukestruts pulling a young fan out of the crowd and bringing her onstage "to be the band's own Courteney Cox."

I had never heard of @wearethewrecks when they hit the stage at @hobanaheim - but I can't wait to immediately check them out now. These dudes lost their all their gear somewhere in Arizona so decided to bust out a fun acoustic set that involved a couch, lighting up a blunt onstage, and pulling fans out of the crowd to join in on the fun. The whole affair could've been a disaster but honestly was a blast. These guys pulled it off and it didn't seen the crowd minded one bit!

If Pop Break has done one great thing - it’s this. It’s created friendships and lifelong bonds of people who love, support and help one another. We’ve been through the best and worst times of each other’s lives. We’ve helped each other find jobs and we’ve been there to celebrate great things like someone becoming a dad. Today was a damn good day. Beautiful words by @bullboskin ! #ThePopBreak
Thunderpussy. November 3, 2018. House of Blues. Anaheim, CA. . . Review and more photos coming soon to @thepopbreak ! . . Yessssss. I am so hype on @thunderpussiez right now. Four ladies who rock and don't give a fuck, having a good time, and being unapologetically themselves. This is what rock needs. With classic rock sounds reappropriated with a womanly flair that is both masculine and feminine and neither masculine nor feminine at once. I love it. . . #thunderpussy #houseofblues #anaheim #orangecounty #california #musicphotography #concertphotography #gigsphotography #liveshow #gigs #concert #concertphotographer #bestmusicshots #audioloveofficial #photopitforever #concertshot #singer #guitar #canon #canon77d #thepopbreak #red #colors #women #rocknroll
The Struts. June 3, 2018. The Roxy. Hollywood, Los Angeles, CA. . . Review of YOUNG AND DANGEROUS now live at @thepopbreak ! . . Guys. @thestruts new album is finally out and it's sick. So many things are shitty right now and it feels like there's so little to look forward to, but these guys have got something worth noting. Everyone would rather talk about how Greta Van Fleet may or may not be saving rock 'n' roll because it's dead or w h a t e v e r. But nah. We have The Struts. Check out "In Love With a Camera" and "Freak Like Me" and "Bulletproof Baby" - you will not be disappointed. . . #thestruts #lukespiller #theroxy #sunsetstrip #hollywood #losangeles #LA #california #musicphotography #concertphotography #gigsphotography #liveshow #gigs #concert #concertphotographer #bestmusicshots #audioloveofficial #photopitforever #concertshot #singer #colors #crowd #thepopbreak #younganddangerous

Interpol. October 4, 2018. Hollywood Bowl. Hollywood, Los Angeles, CA. . . Review of MARAUDER under Published Album Reviews in link in bio and live at @thepopbreak ! . . Feeling atmospheric and moody and broody and listening to @interpol all night as autumn fully envelops us officially here on the west coast. Still a big fan of "If You Really Love Nothing" and the dark and sexy music video that came along with it. Like this photo I snapped at @hollywoodbowl a few weeks ago, it reminds me that Interpol's aesthetic has always been true to them. And I love that they never forget to include a disco ball.

Arctic Monkeys. October 17, 2018. Hollywood Bowl. Hollywood, Los Angeles, CA. . . Review of TRANQUILITY BASE HOTEL AND CASINO under Published Work tab in link in bio and live at @thepopbreak ! . . Holy shit. It's the AAHK-TICK MUNKIIS. Before and after taking some of these photos, I was kicked in the goddamn head by crowdsurfing, rich tweens who clearly used daddy's credit card to find their way into the pit. And it was totally worth it. Some bands follow you throughout your life - you hear an older record and remember what your life was going through at the time. Whatever People Say I Am was me trying to figure out 9th grade. Favourite Worst Nightmare was falling head over heels in love with music and trying to find my own. Humbug was adjusting to New York, just like Alex Turner was. Suck It and See was living in London, tired of the cold and rain but loving it. AM was fighting through grad school, feeling like I was dying in New York and wanting to escape. Tranquility Base has been falling back in love with LA, traveling through time, realizing how this band has walked with me for over a decade. A musical narrative with fitting accompaniment. Thanks for always being there @arcticmonkeys.

The Struts. May 30, 2018. The Roxy. Hollywood, Sunset Strip, CA. . . Interview with @lukestruts of @thestruts under Published Work tab in link in bio and live at @thepopbreak ! . . "I still can't believe I got to talk to Luke Spiller of The Struts for the Pop Break. In our interview, Luke was super open, sweet, and clearly a passionate man with a deep love for music. I often pick fights with friends who are music lovers but dismiss rock music as being relevant in 2018, so I wanted to know what Luke thought of that. Nothing bugs me more than when people say that "rock is dead" - but I think there is validity to the claim. Namely, there aren't enough good rock bands fighting their way to the top. And Luke could not agree more. Like most great things, it all goes back to things Noel Gallagher has said: sure, these up-and-coming rock acts could be the next big thing, but do they actually have a song? Luckily, the Struts don't just have one song. They have DOZENS." πŸ“πŸ“Έ: @katgoestoshows ! . . #lukespiller #thestruts #theroxy #sunsetstrip #hollywood #losangeles #LA #california #musicphotography #concertphotography #gigsphotography #liveshow #gigs #concert #concertphotographer #bestmusicshots #audioloveofficial #photopitforever #concertshot #singer #orange #thepopbreak #interview #musicjournalism

A little late posting, but this week I reviewed a brand new title. For all of you Disney lovers I highly recommend this tale.

@thebaylorproject at #pennslanding #philadelphia Such a great show. They got that old school sound from the 70s still alive today. Thanks for the show. Too bad the weather didn't cooperate. But there were some dedicated fans who toughed it out. These are just 2 pictures. I will have more up on my feed, as well as on my website. Link in bio.

When I'm feeling down, I remember how needlessly cool @alberthammondjr is at all waking hours. Looking forward to autumn when I can bust out double-denim fashion moments - perhaps even some tight white jeans, old ripped band tees, and slick bomber jackets. Gotta go for that sick AHJ look.
