Madi Diaz

Troubadour

West Hollywood, CA 90069

7:00pm

Her father and mother both have wide arms and colorful palates, and supplemented her education with a steady stream of classic rock, metal, r&b, pop and prog. The inspiration stuck with Madi, who left small town life behind for Boston's esteemed Berklee College of Music. There, she began to shape her sound with songwriter Kyle Ryan, where her powerful voice intermixed with Americana undertones. Next she moved to Nashville, self-releasing her first album "Plastic Moon" in 2012, and beginning to explore her music's cinematic feel.

Now with Madi's Nettwerk debut "Phantom," her songs dive deeper and fly higher, providing a soundtrack for adventurous escapades on sweaty dance floors with old friends or late night introspective drives under a canopy of stars. As she takes to the road again this summer, Madi is poised to unleash her powerful songs and chase whatever the future may hold. "I can never sit still," she says "I wanna hurl myself into life. These songs tell a story about lighting flames and letting every part of the last fire burn out. Don't turn around and don't look back. Look forward."

Snowpiercer with Bong Joon-ho

Hammer Museum

10899 Wilshire Blvd, CA 90024, CA 0

7:30pm

"Bong Joon-ho’s epic adventure describes an impending ice age caused by human hand, whose last survivors are left circling the earth in a nonstop express train. The rich are in the front carriages and the poor—from whose perspective the story is told—at the back. If you walk along a moving train from back to front, you end up traveling faster than the train itself relative to the Earth. This is the dynamic force upon which Bong’s film thrives: there’s only one direction in which this revolt can go and it’ll be doomed to failure if its speed doesn’t exceed the reaction. With its impressive cast (including Chris Evans, Tilda Swinton, Song Kang-ho, Octavia Spencer, and John Hurt) breathtaking artificial landscapes, fantastic make-up, over-the-top décor, fresh, witty dialogue, and a healthy portion of humor, Bong gives back to cinema what the Lumière brothers themselves already used to impress their audiences: the sheer force of the machine" (Berlinale, 2014).

Monday Night Residency with Girlpool

The Echo

1822 W. Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90026

8:00pm

“If rebellion had a sound, I imagine it would end up sounding a lot like Girlpool. It’s not necessarily a descriptor that they would ascribe to themselves — they’d probably go with honest — but what is honesty except a form of rebellion against expectations? And Girlpool subvert expectations at every turn. Made up of Harmony Tividad and Cleo Tucker, the duo chose early on to do more with less: They use only a guitar, a bass, and their own voices to craft prickly and powerful rock. Their minimalist approach to sound allows the lyrics to take center stage, and those lyrics are achingly genuine and upfront. Above all else, the band values their vulnerability: it’s something that comes through potently in their music. It’s punk in the best sense of the word: fresh, raw, and uncompromising, a callback to the heyday of riot grrl exceptionalism.
