After a mere 8-year break we welcome the return of The Last Shadow Puppets with open arms and ears. Literally, I tried to hug them, but cordial handshakes were exchanged instead. I suppose it’s understandable that a duo pulling from the forefronts of The Rascals and Arctic Monkeys might have been a teensy bit busy […]
“HONEYBEAR, HONEYBEAR, HONEYBEAR, MASCARA, BLOOD, ASH AND CUM ON THE RORSCHACH SHEETS WHERE WE MAKE LOVE.” Father John Misty has built an impressive career writing songs about love, sex, and crippling vulnerability; pair that with a set of dance moves that could make a microphone stand blush and you’ve got two diverse, equally impressive albums and a […]
Raise your hand if you’ve ever accidentally deleted your work on Microsoft Word, lost photos from a corrupted memory card or just plain dropped your phone in the toilet. Now put your hand down, I can’t see you.
Last night, we celebrated the launch of issue #49 of Monster Children, aka the photo annual issue. We also exhibited the winners and finalists of our 2015 Photo Competition. But wait, there’s more. We also ended the drought in Los Angeles by quenching its population with cocktails by Bulleit and brewskies by Pabst Blue Ribbon. Then, […]
To celebrate the launch of issue #48 of Monster Children, we threw one hell of a hoedown at Harvest House in Denton, Texas. Our guest editor, Jason Lee, recently relocated to the small Texan town, and much of the issue features local musicians, craftsmen and eateries. So, we dusted off our boots, fastened our bolos, […]
Austin, we have arrived!

The festivities started just before noon […]
Last week, FLOOD was honored to play host to a very special evening of music from innovative experimental-rock group Blonde Redhead, the band’s sole scheduled Los Angeles performance for the foreseeable future. With an intimate ambiance of candlelit walls and soft violet stage lighting, Kazu Makino, Amedeo Pace, and Simone Pace brought tea and whiskey […]
Hanni El Khatib doesn’t have a thing to prove to anyone. He’s past any debut album nerves, blowing people out of the water with When The Guns Come Out. “You Rascal, You” has soundtracked some of your favorite commercials, and “F—k It, You Win” is the best brush-off song a scorned lover could have created.
Hometown indie darlings De Lux rang in FLOOD magazine’s inaugural Red Bull Sound Select showcase, headlining the intimate show at Hollywood’s exclusive Sayers Club. The upbeat, dance-infused punk was a perfect end-of-summer pick-me-up. Isaac Rother & The Phantoms hosted the evening along with Red Bull Sound Select artists Incan Abraham, who set a perfect mood […]
