Best Live Events in LA for Months of October and November

Subnormal Magazine appears in the new issue of The Hollywood Sentinel reporting on the latest live events to attend in Los Angeles, as well as a tribute to the victims of the Colorado shooting. Our hearts go out to the victims in Aurora, Colorado, whose murderer was on at least one pharmaceutical drug – Vicodin, which – with prolonged usage and addiction- causes hallucinations. – subnormal

“My heart aches and breaks for the lives taken and altered by this unfathomably senseless act. I am at a loss for words how to express my sorrow. My thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families.” – Anne Hathaway


“Words cannot express the horror that I feel. I cannot begin to truly understand the pain and grief of the victims and their loved ones, but my heart goes out to them.” – Christian Bale

“My prayers and deepest sympathies are with the victims and their families of this horrific act.” – Gary Oldman

…”I believe movies are one of the great American art forms and the shared experience of watching a story unfold on screen is an important and joyful pastime. The movie theatre is my home, and the idea that someone would violate that innocent and hopeful place in such an unbearably savage way is devastating to me. Nothing any of us can say could ever adequately express our feelings for the innocent victims of this appalling crime, but our thoughts are with them and their families.”

– Batman – Dark Knight Rises Director Chris Nolan

Live Music Review

Pershing Square in downtown L.A. put up a stage this summer and had six free concerts including Reverend Horton Heat, John Doe of X, John Waite, The Fixx, and Berlin and The Bangles. Berlin, who we saw, were amazing, tearing out classic cuts with expertise including ‘Metro,’ ‘Sex,’ and more. They ended with the timeless romantic ballad of ‘Take my Breath Away,’ which saw couples slow dancing to it under the stars.


The Bangles who we also saw were incredible and were one of the highlights of our year. Making fame for their hit songs including ‘Manic Monday’ and ‘Walk Like an Egyptian’ among more, this all girl band transcends pop cliche’s with full on power – rooted in garage rock, blues, and even punk. Masters of the stage, The Bangles’ high energy, feel good music and voices sounded better than ever, with each song being as brilliantly entertaining as the one before, and with singer Susanna Hoffs sounding and looking nothing less than smoking hot. Congrats on getting a great booker for this series, with some truly great entertainment, good sound, and expertly produced shows.
