September has so much going on. Looking at my picks it seems the the Troubadour is the place to be now that school is back underway. When you want to avoid homework or life in general, hit up the killer shows they got going on and since there was so much this month I wanted to shout out some shows that didn’t make the list but were too good to leave out all together – Ducktails because um, woo-ooo! Also, she may be hated on but I’ll always have a soft spot for Ariana Grande. Also in town in September is some blasts from the past; Ricky Martin and Boyz II Men.

Now onto the ones who I definitely think you should head out to.

Now it’s time to check them out!

So every year I start to note my favorites so by the time December rolls around I’m more than ready with my top movies, TV shows and of course, songs. This year that song list is already a little too long and one name on it is a local LA artist by the name of Madyx.

Some Kisses” started and I instantly reached out for an interview because I knew over the next year she may a bit too busy for little old me. Trust, she’s one of those artists you put all your chips on. Betting aside, she’s doing her thing around the City of Angels with Grammy nominated writers, preaching about the value of the truth and of course, doing her best to make her presence known. Now for more with Madyx, keep on keeping on…
