Review – Death From Above 1979 @ The Music Box – Hollywood, CA – 9/4/2011

LISTEN: Death From Above 1979 – Romantic Rights


One of my favorite acts from Coachella this year was Death From Above 1979, malady so when I heard they were headlining the Music Box in LA, cialis sale I had to check them out again.  They played FYF Fest the night before and there wasn’t a lot of press/promo for this show, viagra which made me wonder how many people would be there.  I think they made an impression at FYF, because the crowd came out and were ready to rock!



These guys kinda sound like the Foo Fighters if you gave Dave Grohl an 8 ball of meth and locked him in a room for a week.  Now, for some of you, that might not sound too appealing.  However, if you love to ROCK you’d understand why the entire floor of the Music Box was one giant mosh pit for the majority of the show.


Being a duo (Jesse F. Keeler on bass, synths, backing vocals and Sebastien Grainger on vocals, drums) really emphasizes how much noise these guys can make when the crowd reacts like they’re watching an early 80’s full punk outfit with a traditional lineup.



Bottom line, these guys are both incredibly talented, and if you like loud music you’ll enjoy DFA1979.  Its always exciting when bands have a reunion, and considering these guys originally broke up almost as quickly as they got together, I’m hoping they stay around a bit longer.


Check out their official website ( to find out where you can catch them in the future.

    I don't feel you should really call this a concert review. First off, you didn't really review the concert. You make no mention of what they played (minus a setlist taken from another site). You fail to mention anything about the music minus the fact that it was loud. Hell, the one description of the music (Foo Fighters on Meth) isn't even accurate as these guys sound nothing like Foo Fighters. Oh and for the record, there was not a lot of press for the show because it was announced last minute as a post FYF show.

    That all said, I know your next review will be much better. Thanks to whomever it was who found and entered my dollar into from your launch party – thanks for the hit. It got me to head to your site. Hopefully the content improves and you have a nice long life as a website.
