For our L.A. music issue, we had to talk with one of the city’s most established and involved artists: Ryan Adams. In the cover story, we spend time with Adams at his L.A.-based PAX-AM studio, where he talks writing his latest self-titled album, recording with artists like Jenny Lewis and Patrick Stump, and, of course, that one word he can’t seem to escape: prolific.
We also take you through the Los Angeles club scene, from a history of the Hotel Cafe to the smaller, up-and-coming venues you need to know about.
And since the holidays are right around the corner, we put together a Holiday Gear Guide that should cover just about everyone on your gift list (but don’t blame us if some of those ‘gifts’ never leave your house).
