THE RUNDOWN – 9.2.2014 – 9.7.2014

Good shows this week: Dent May at Stone Fox tomorrow, Liquor Store and Bummers Eve at Betty’s on Thursday while Bass Drum of Death…

SOMEONE OUT THERE

There’s a new single out through the Famous Class LAMC series, and this one comes from two of our favorites: White Fence and Jack Name. The White Fence track is full of all the bedroom jangle and lysergic turn-arounds we’ve come to expect from him, but the Jack Name track is what really has us…

BIKERS WELCOME! NO COLORS!

Bonnaroo, Coachella, and Lollapalooza. For the last few years, these have been the largest music festivals money could buy a ticket to.

The albums are filled with splendid powepop songs reminiscent of Emitt Rhodes, Todd Rundgren and Big Star. If the dude above looks familiar, you’ve probably seen him playing guitar in the latest lineup of…

THAT GIRL IS POISON

Attention dawgs and dawgettes, there’s a band rolling though town this Friday we forgot to mention in the Rundown but is ~essential~ to your spiritual development. Ivy is one of the younger groups associated with New York’s recent punk rock renaissance (Hank Wood, Crazy Spirit, etc), peddling a kind of schizophrenic rock and roll combined…
