Slayer goes to Church. So Does Drum ‘n Bass

Slayer Mashup – Religious Zealots Jamming to Metal Music

Slayer vs. the lord – Who Says Religion and Rock and Roll Don’t Mix?

Heavy metal music and religious zealotry are not know for being passionate bedfellows. Until now!

Watch as exalted bible thumpers thump their heads to heavy metal music, featuring metal masters Slayer. Sure to make you smile and thank the lord! What’s that you say? It’s not possible? Watch this and reconsider your beliefs. So sayeth the lord.

Drum and Bass is a Religious Experience

Not to be out shined by the metalheads, Drums n Bass music seems to move the religious people just as much as it does DnB fans across the globe. Have a look:

DJ Lorin aka Bassnectar in L.A. (video from 12/28/08)

Bassnectar Ripping it Up in L.A.

What a killer show this was. I thought I’d post this video here as a reminder of the types of kick-ass music events that take place in L.A. Lorin always packs the house with some of the most gorgeous, fun-loving people on the planet. The L.A. underground is alive and well, even though this particular event was not really underground. It certainly gestated there!

Lightning in a Bottle Returns – Exceptional Art and Music Festival

Only a Southern California dance, art, and music festival can feature Daedelus and downward facing dog, but that’s exactly what the fifth annual Do LaB Lightning in a Bottle art and music festival will offer when it takes over 100+ acres of Irvine, California’s Oak Canyon Ranch over Memorial Day weekend.

The four-day, three-night festival bills itself as “equal parts music, art and green workshops.” Accordingly, those drawn to bone-crunching bass and funky rhythms can choose from over 90 artists including Booka Shade, The Album Leaf, The Glitch Mob, The Very Best, Daedelus, Daddy Kev, and Nosaj Thing.

Lightning in a Bottle will also feature a set from Krystee, the winner of the festival’s mix-tape contest that found DJ’s from across America looking for a chance to perform by submitting tapes using only Lightning in a Bottle acts.

Attendees can also explore other options, via green-living workshops that offer “practical, do-it-yourself lessons on creating a healthy, low-cost, sustainable lifestyle.” The workshops included “Small Space Container Gardening,” “How to Make Raw Chocolate” and “Growing & Using Medicinal Herbs.” Those looking to loosen up after three nights in a sleeping bag can increase their elasticity via an array of yoga courses taking place throughout the day.

An Art Festival as Much as a Music Festival

The artistically inclined may find solace in the festival’s art gallery, installation pieces, or its Lightning in a Paintcan Project, during which local artists will transform over-sized mural panels into paintings using recycled paint. The finished pieces will be sold in a silent auction, with proceeds going to Sonic Muze, a nonprofit group that provides underfunded schools with music instruments and art supplies. With three-day passes available for $190 (including camping), the festival figures to bring enough stimulation so that everyone will need to say Savasana by Monday night.

May 20: Live Rock n Roll with “Nashville Pussy”

Nashville Pussy rocks! If you love rock and roll and good times, you don’t want to miss this show. In my opinion, they sound like a cross between AC/DC, Motorhead, and late 1970’s Ted Nugent, coupled with a good dose of long, curly blond hair, a really nice set ‘o titties, a bottle of Jack Daniels, and a bad attitude. What’s not to love? Playing at the Key Club in Hollywood, Thursday night May 20th.
