ROCK is alive in Los Angeles!!!!!!
I wanna say thank you to everyone who came to this past Monday’s show—we had an INCREDIBLE night of great new rock bands!!
Thanks especially to the bands and Kyle Mabson, who did his usual awesome job with the sound and DJing.
If you haven’t added Kuato, NASA Space Universe, Heavy Face, Dreamhouse, Brother, Destroy Tokyo and Battlehooch on Myspace DO IT NOW!!! Look them up, check out their music and dig them—all of them are the future… and they sound fucking flawless! I am really excited about this new musical era we are entering. These bands write awesome songs and go crazy onstage… Wild times!
Just a reminder: making noise outside of Pehrspace is going to mean the end of this wonderful venue. Screaming, cackling, loud talking, shouting, smashing or banging bottles and cans… PLEASE DON’T DO THIS. The venue is in a canyon and the sound amplifies as it travels up to our neighbors, who are hardworking blue-collar folks trying to get some rest. They love us, but don’t want to hear us. I don’t want to have a no ins-and-outs policy which is repugnant to me, so, please, keep it down when you are outside or going to your car. Don’t fuck this up!
The next two weeks are really exciting—one of my earliest L.A. friends, Mitchell Brown is curating. Mitch is “Professor Cantaloupe” on KXLU and is a gourmand of esoteric musics. These next two bills are perhaps our most diverse yet, and dancing is HIGHLY ENCOURAGED. Don’t miss them!
