Big party tonight and you are invited…Read about guest performers Sisterfucker & Raw War

Tonight we party at the home of legendary artist Tom of Finland, perhaps the greatest male erotic illustrator ever, and an inspiration to millions.

We will be honoring the art of poster maker Danimal.

If you are in or near Echo Park you owe it to yourself to stop by.

Afterward we rock to the provocative sounds of Gay Beast, XBXRX, Sisterfucker, Raw War and NASA Space Universe.

Raw War is as caustic and uncompromising as their name would suggest. Hailing from Oakland, sound like a punk record and a Fall record and a grunge record all playing at once. You know—cacophonous, guitars guitars guitars, and vocals that make you want to punch someone in the face. Like yourself. (You deserve it.)

In short, Raw War are the perfect complement to tonight’s proceedings…

Who is Raw War?
Sweet tooth plays drums, and Sean and Jen sing. There’s also some guitars and stuff.

How would you describe your musical aesthetic?
Dum punk.

How long have you been together?
Since we started.

What song in your set most represents you as a band?
We play this one song called “Claire’s Mystery” and it’s about accessories and how she finds the time to make them all. What a mystery!

What are your favorite new songs right now and why?
Sean: Old Skull’s “Homeless” video
Jen: I like to dance to Italo disco
Tooth: Whatever is playing right now. Because I have no memory.

When I announced Sisterfucker‘s appearance on tonight’s show, I got an immediate response from all of you: YES!!!

That’s because this duo’s pedigree—these two have played (albeit separately) in iconic bands like Child Pornography, High Castle and Coughs—represents some of the best music made thus far in the 21st Century.

This is not easy listening. But that’s what you wanted. Be careful what you wish for…

Who is Sisterfucker?
Erin Allen, drums and vocals.  Vanessa Harris, guitar and vocals.

How would you describe your musical aesthetic?
Log Cabin.  But instead of using an axe you use the chain saw.

How long have you been together?
Since October of ’09… We wanted to redeem a one night stand we
called “Lotion”.

What song in your set most represents you as a band?
“Breakfast” because prophetically topical. Plus it happens everyday!

What’s your favorite new song right now?
“Dissident Aggressor”—It’s our new favorite song as a band.  We disagree which version is better… Slayer or Judas Priest???

Complete this sentence: See us in L.A. and…
…Do you wanna die?
