Tonight confirmed what we had hoped, Chloe Chaidez is an absolute star in the making. She has the voice of a young Karen O + Meiko mixed with Emma Richardson (Band of Skulls) but seems to want to throw down and thrash at times as well. Tonight, her band Kitten played to a packed house full of A&R reps from over a dozen record labels at LA’s famed music venue The Echo, I’m sure many of them left wondering exactly what to do with an artist like Chloe.
She has a lot of things to improve upon and areas to grow, but come on… she just turned 15 years old. With the right production, musical direction and marketing she could do some amazing things, we will keep you updated on her progress for certain as I feel there will be some major moves made quite soon. Stoked they gave out free EPs during the show, those went quickly. Also an area of immediate concern is her lack of online presence… With a Twitter account that hasn’t been updated since September of 2009, Facebook fan page hasn’t been updated since late last year and a MySpace page with barely over 500 friends I’d suggest someone start kicking that side into high gear, even once a week does a world of difference.
Regardless, for every negative there are 10 positives with this young girl. They must be doing something right because the music industry is buzzin over her. At times she has astounding stage presence and really does know her voice quite well. Really looking forward to seeing this develop in the near future.
For now, check out her MySpace page and listen to “Kill The Light”, “Kitten With A Whip” and “We Did It Anyway”.

THAT is how a party is done.
We went to one of the most raging parties of the year last night called LApocalypto at The Form… photos coming soon. If we met you there, say hello – If you took photos there, send us a link!
Big thanks to the 5 big gangs… The Daisy Chains, The Megamutants, The Destroyers, The Roboroids and The Beboppers.
THE FUTURE IS NOW.
We first heard of Carney by listening to the song “Think Of You” on our friend’s MySpace page, you remember when people used that site? Those were the days…
Anyway, the band has been through some crazy stuff since then – courted by many major labels, selling out multiple venues around Hollywood and touring with some legendary bands like Gov’t Mule.
The lead singer Reeve Carney has been selected by Bono & The Edge to be Spiderman on Broadway in their upcoming broadway rock musical. Crazy enough, the rest of the band will be in the pit orchestra as well – with Reeve’s younger brother Zane Carney rockin first chair guitar – fitting as he is an extraordinary player.
Below you will find one of the most interesting and amazingly directed music videos we’ve seen in quite some time… Now signed to Interscope Records the band is poised for an amazing release of their debut album Mr Green. Enjoy!
Called it during the first audition, most recent performance confirmed it.

Hey @NFLNetwork – We love you… probably the most watched channel here for us. But damn, gotta put some sort of spell check in place. One misspelling is understandable – but FOUR? In one segment?
No hard feelings, I just had to laugh at these… Shown today with the announcement of the NFL’s All Decade Team for the ’00s. Click the words below to see the screenshots!
“Linbacker” (who needs the “e” anyway)
“Defensive Takle” (awesome)
“Gaurd” (our personal favorite)
“Wide Reciever” (can’t hold that one against you)
