Helen Stellar at Spaceland tonight, 6/11! New songs!

Helen Stellar is back tonight! They are making their headlining return to Spaceland in Silverlake after they ended their residency back in April. They promise an extra long set filled with their new work and some old favorites. Doors at 8:30pm with Pink Noise and 22-20's


Bieber, You’ll Move Mountains

Justin Bieber has joined the local band Kid, You’ll Move Mountains! Ok, not really, but the band has launched a fun campaign to try and get Mr. Bieber to appear on stage with them at Summerfest this year on June 27th. KYMM plays the Cascio Interstate Music/WMSE/Shepherd Express Stage @ 9pm and Bieber plays Marcus Amphitheater @ 7pm, so it makes sense that he would want to stop by a rock out with the local favorites, right?

If you support this theory join the band’s facebook group and let them know.


From Our Open Blog: Darren Garvey

Chicago multi-instumentalist Darren Garvey keeps busy playing in the Andreas Kapsalis Trio, Cameron McGill & What Army, Cory Chisel and The Wandering Sons, and Like Pioneers (ex-Bound Stems) to name a few. You can usually find him behind a drum set or some form of percussion set up... But, this year Garvey took it upon himself to record a solo record; writing 13 songs, singing for the first time, and playing all of the instruments. How does it sound? Well, it's as eclectic as all of the bands that Garvey holds down the rhythm for. 'On Standby' is a latin tune with some guest horns (ok, he didn't play all of the instruments). Technically he wasn't able to sing the female background vocals either... You can hear more of Darren's debut Under A Common Ceiling at his website.


Suckers release full length after years of waitin' - Live at Music Hall, 06.18

While most indie rock bands tend to rush into releasing their first debut album, others - probably more wisely - wait for things to slowly fall into place before they put out what is undeniably a major creative effort for any artist. Suckers' popularity has been growing slowly but steadily for at least 3-4 years, and finally, with the help of Frenchkiss Records, they have released their debut full length Wild Smile, available for streaming here. At a first listen, the album confirms the band's strength in producing hypnotizing, slow paced, textured, trippy tunes, with a fascination for chanting and soulful harmonizations. The strongest track seems to belong to their older repertoire ("It Gets Your Body Moving") some sort of choral, timeless psychedelic lullaby, slowly building in intensity and power, that was already present in their debut EP. The band has also announced a fall tour with Menomena. See them live at The Music Hall of Williamsburg on June 18.
