The Little Death NYC @ The Dragonfly ~ Hollywood

Part Two of the 4 concerts in 4 nights series.

Friday night found me at the Dragonfly in Hollywood. Mostly known for The Spazmatics (infamous 80s cover band) on Sunday nights and Point Break Live (play with crowd participation based on the classic flick) on Saturdays.  You're probably saying this place is not exactly known for legit music concerts.  On this particular night, however, Moby's new blues/rock band The Little Death NYC was due to perform a rare show outside of the 212 - where all the members reside. Still the club was only about 70% capacity by show time. The crowd might of been small but it was a cool one -  a good mix of hipsters, industry peeps, and music lovers. Even Rollergirl Heather Graham was in the house.

Moby, mostly known for his electronic music work, displayed that he is not a one trick pony. He played both the guitar and bass on some great bluesy rock tracks that all seemed like they came straight from the soundtrack of a Tarantino movie.  However, to talk about The Little Death NYC and not mention the real star in the group would be a shame. Laura Dawn, the lead singer, was straight channeling Janis Joplin all night. Her voice is immensely powerful and she really carried all the songs . Check them out when you can - you won't regret it.
