Where's Underworld and Mew? Make it happen GV.
I think I read somewhere that they're from San Fran, but could be San Fran via Vancouver. They're dope though. I guess the lead singer is married to Aesop Rock who does some production work for them.
I had a blast, I hope to see these guys again in a better venue/crowd. Soda Bar is fun and super intimate, but there were seriously 30 people in the whole bar, and 10-15 were watching the band. Pretty cool though. Reminded me of the Rapture mixed with a little PJ Harvey? (the show, not the video/song I just posted)
Which is sold out already
Edit: Too late.
Damn, that was quick. Surprised no Goldenvoice presale
Checked out on the way to class from my phone. Technology has made life amazing when you take a step back and look at it.
You pulled tickets walking to class? You beast
the sd hob show was sold out then came back up so maybe everyone keep checking back for el rey? doubtful but yeah.
edit: definitely enough room on the tour schedule to add a 2nd show as well.
Anyone at the Echo last night see Willis Earl Beal? There was like literally only 50 people there. But, whoever was in the room got treated to one of the most soulful concerts I've ever seen. His stage presence, voice, etc were absolutely top notch. The banter w/ the crowd was super funny. I doubt he ever becomes a real big star but I really hope he does cause he's the real deal. Him and Gary Clark Jr tour would be amazing. Yes, he's plucking his guitar w/ his toothpick...
