Girls put on an excellent show last Thursday. Great feedback from Girls fans from all over the world regarding this show at Pappy and Harriet’s. Based on the response from the show and Christopher Owens magnetic charm can we predict Girls headlining Coachella in the near future?

Brody Dalle shared her new track ‘Don’t Mess With Me’ to the Pappy’s crowd the titled track to her new solo album 'Diploid Love’ which drops on April 28th. Dalle was in good spirits cranking through her punk fused set as her hubby Josh Homme looked on. She dedicated her last song to Alejandra.

She also wished happy birthday to a thirteen year old boy who came down from Santa Barbara to see her show.

Haim at Coachella on Friday. Haim talked about that they have been at Coachella every year since 2004 but never purchased tickets. Holes in Goldenvoice security that most do not know about.  Excellent performance by Haim on Friday.

Claire Boucher current project Grimes stirred Old Town Pasadena  on Saturday at the Make Music Festival. Excited fans surronded the security gates and caused a little security concern causing the set to be cut short. I was impressed with Claire’s love for her fans prior to the show instead of staying in her air conditioned trailer she reached out to her fans saying hello and taking pictures with them before her set. Its nice to see that she appreciated the thousands of people that came out to see her set. My kudos also goes to the Make Music Pasadena Festival for putting on a FREE music festival that showcased excellent music in Old Town Pasadena.

The very cool and hot Dee Dee Penny took the Outdoor stage at Coachella yesterday with her customary black looking like an erotic vulture. Clad for the weather Dee Dee decided to wear pasties an sensual endeavor to cool down.

The Dum Dum Girls cranked through a twelve song set which featured tunes from their new record Too True with “Rimbaud Eyes,” “In the Wake of You,” and “Lost Boys & Girl’s Club. “ Fan response was higher when the first note of “Bedroom Eyes” was received. Dee ended the set with an amazing rendition of “Coming Down,” from their album Only in Dreams.
