2) When bad things happen to good people is when punk rock and GoFundMe kicks into gear. Bruce Moreland has contributed a lot to the LA music scene (Wall of Voodoo, past and present member of The Weirdos, Raven’s Moreland) and he’ found himself in a tumble with his motorcycle last week. So this hardworking sweetheart of a guy and good hearted provocateur needs a little assistance. You can go here OR come to the benefit show on Saturday at the Echo (It’s all ages! It’s early! Proceeds go to Bruce!) with a special performance from THE WEIRDOS (Xander Schloss filling in on bass) Midget Handjob featuring Keith Morris, 100 Flowers and Egrets on Ergot. Good cause. Good music.
Need we say more?
Tickets to The Weirdos + Midget Handjob (ft Keith Morris) at The Echo on 11/4 here.
3. Superet is one of those bands that sound both familiar and fresh – taking 80s electro pop, 70s throwback glam and just a big guitar sound to the stage. You will smile when you see them and sing along to songs you’ve never heard. They take over the November residency and we’re pretty sure they will be your favorite band all through the month and beyond!
Read their feature + RSVP for their shows here.
4. We’ve been looking forward to this for a long time… pretty much since Curtis Harding’s debut came out in 2014. But now there’s a new record and the super soul he delivers with style and cool will be in real time. Harding’s music digs deep and is beyond just retro soul. Simply put, he’s the real deal. All talent. This won’t be the last of him – thank goodness !
Tickets to Curtis Harding + The Entire Universe at The Echo on 11/9 here.
5) The boys are back in town… as corny as it sounds.. Come to the Echo next Friday to welcome home THEE COMMONS. They’ve been spreading their punk rock cumbia across the country. Come give them a big Echo Park welcome home !
Tickets to Thee Commons + Cutty Flam + DJ Mudd + DJ Wampiro at The Echo on 11/10 here.
6) Detroit native Shigeto immersed himself back into the Motor City scene after a stint in Brooklyn. His new release The New Monday out on Ghostly International, pays tribute to that scene and smears together percussion, jazz, hip hop and electronica. Shigeto moves forward with house beats and jams that work for the modern dance floor
Tickets to Shigeto + Ela Minus at Echoplex on 11/11 here.
