Young the Giant

Genre: Alt-rock

If you’re looking for something to do on this potentially stormy Saturday night, head on down to The Roxy on Sunset to check out Young the Giant with We Barbarians and Kitten for an awesome night of in-your-face alt-rock.  I’ve had the pleasure of seeing Young the Giant play an exhilarating set at UCLA (read about that here) and talking to them (such nice gents they were) about their music.  They're definitely a band to keep an eye on--according to their Facebook updates, it seems like they've been everywhere and doing everything.  If you haven't heard of them now, you will hear of them soon.  Furthermore, they’ll be playing the highly anticipated SXSW (check out other artists playing the festival here), as will We Barbarians, so here’s your chance to get a preview!

Claire Gallagher

Claire Gallagher is from Las Vegas, Nevada.  She grew up under blinking signs for Girls, Girls, Girls! and she hummed to the clanky sounds of slot machines in casinos and grocery stores and airports.   She now attends school at UCLA and is becoming very intimately acquainted with the kick-ass music scene Los Angeles so sweetly provides. When Claire is not on the back of a horse or playing with her pet snake, Skittles, she is listening to music, eating orange chicken, or spinning around in her rolly chair.  She is fond of tyrannosaurus rexes, John Steinbeck, and the fleeting feeling of post-concert deafness.  You can check her out on tumblr as well.
