    Although Rooney thankfully didn't reduce any girls to tears the way the fab four did, the Los Angeles quintet elicited plenty of dancing, screaming and swooning from its predominately young female crowd. Click here to continue reading Bob McMahon's review of Rooney & Eisley at the Firebird....

  • Ke$ha at the Pageant
    Forget what you know - or think - about Ke$ha, the sleazy pop sensation everyone loves to hate.

And keytars....

  • Old 97's and Those Darlins at the Pageant
    Rhett Miller packs more boyish charm into one pick-clutching pinkie finger than the entire Justin Bieber empire. And don't get me started on his hair. Apologies for invoking the Bieb, but last night at the Pageant, Miller and the Old 97's delivered an energetic, generous set of uptempo...

  • Central Caf and Bakery
    The restaurant is a family endeavor. Owner Michael Jaber alternates between the front and back of house, while his daughters work out front; other family members are among the kitchen staff. The vibe is very friendly. Jaber walks the floor often, checking up on diners, answering questions,...
