  • Saint Motel Lights Up Los Angeles

    3P1A6963

    It's a clear Friday night in LA.  I grab some pad thai at Grand Central Market, complete with milk tea (my favorite).  Then it's on to the Belasco Theater to catch Saint Motel at the start of their Saint Motelevision Tour.  It was great catching up with the guys and they did not disappoint us or the packed crowd on hand.

    If you aren't familiar with Saint Motel, AJ, Dak, Greg, and Aaron put out high energy, catchy tunes with skill and an undeniable indie vibe.  The guys brought out Mariachi Los Toros to open up the their set in style.

    Then it was time to give the people what they wanted, and evening of thumping, bouncing, and leaving your worries at the curb.  Hits like "My Type" set the place off and songs like "Move" off the new album pulsed with groovy goodness.  Being a drummer, I enjoyed Greg's clean, but hard-hitting style and AJ had an unbroken connection to the crowd all night long.

  • HEXploring Slovakia

    One of our friends, Scott Reyes, who happens to go by @losanageles on Instagram, recently had a chance to go out and HEXplore around Slovakia.  Here are his thoughts and images.

    One of the best things about traveling is connecting with people and seeing what they’re all about. One thing I’ve learned is that, for the most part, everyone is pretty similar. We all want the same things in life – to find happiness. Despite the language barrier I found myself meeting people who were interested in getting to know me as much as I wanted to get to know them. I found ways to communicate and connect with great people who led me to some of the most awe-inspiring locations in Slovakia.

    From small villages, to dilapidated castles, and snow covered mountains, Slovakia is a country full of history, great food, and miles of jaw dropping nature.

    We later hiked over these hills for about 2 hours and reached a brewery for a well-deserved beer and Pirohy.

    Slovakia has history written on every corner with people settling there as far back as the 6th Century AD. I had to the opportunity to tour through several big cities that showcased more contemporary architecture, but I really wanted to see an older, medeival side to the country. Yes, mansions and castles! My friend Julia, a local from Spišská nová Ves, took me to see the Markušovce Manor House. The last people to live here were in 2006 and still live in Europe!

    Markušovce Manor was built by the Mariassy family, later captured and occupied by the Nazis and also used by the state during the Communist era. It is now open to the public as a museum and concert hall.

    Julia had told me that the concert hall was built to impress a visiting guest who then later cancelled on the Mariassy family. That’s going far and beyond for a friend.

    Most of our trip consisted of riding the train to other cities and towns. Here we slept, met other people traveling, and chased after our trains.

    My favorite part of the trip was on my very last day. We woke up at 6am to catch the sunrise from a snowy mountain. On our way we saw a few deer and wolf tracks. It had snowed the night before and everything was still untouched. Our feet would be the first ones to lay tracks that day.
