Check out what’s on our radar for the month of April!
4/7: Group Effort Vol. 1 Tape Release Show Ft: Pardoner, Little Star, Boy Scouts & Sirena Victima @ Eli’s Mile High Club
This past fall, GROUP and LMSFN rounded up Bay Area musicians to record cover tracks for a compilation tape. Mall Walk does Fleetwood Mac, Pardoner does Tears for Fears, and Plush does No Doubt–the pairings all initially seem ambitious but every band holds their own and it’s crazy good. You can snag yourself a tape at their official release show this Friday.
4/8: French Vanilla, Girl Pusher, Lala Lala and more @ Basic Flowers
This shit will also be crazy. Down in SoCal, we’ll get a mix of art punk, art noise, and maybe a little art surf?? who is this SUPER SECRET HEADLINER????
4/13: Ian Sweet, Post Life, Horrible/Adorable & Plush @ Rickshaw Stop
Hardly Art Records did it again. They brought Ian Sweet into our lives amongst the many other bands we’ve grown to love on their label. Post Life, Horrible/Adorable and Plush really are the whipped cream, sprinkles and dang cherry on top of this soon to be glorious evening.
4/19: Astro Lizard Presents: Desert Gold w/ No Parents, Melted, & Bronzer @ Ace Hotel & Swim Club (Palm Springs)
Astro Lizard is doing it right at this mid-Coachella party. If you’re out in Palm Springs, you can jump in the pool with No Parents, Melted, and Bronzer. It’s gonna be a splash!
4/21: Straight Crimes, Prissy Whip (LA), Funeral Cone & Painting with Statue @ Oakland.Secret
This shit is gonna be crazy. We caught Straight Crimes at one of Mall Walk’s residency shows and the two piece did not hold back on the distorted raucous. Prissy Whip is also a force to behold and traveling up from LA.
4/22: Cool-Tite’s 3rd Anniversary Party w/ Prettiest Eyes, Cigarette Bums, and more @ Hi-Hat
Ok, we saved the craziest for last. Our best buds Cool-Tite are throwing a rager at the Hi-Hat to celebrate their third year of covering LA’s punk community and beyond. See y’all there!
