Man Man's latest release - Six Demon Bag is Out Now on Ace Fu Records
[MP3] Man Man - Van Helsing Boombox
[MP3] Simon Dawes - Salute The Institution
I cut my teeth in the Los Angeles music world far from the eastside dives and small indie venues of Silverlake. I moved to Los Angeles at the ripe old age of 19 and found it impossible to get into most venues that were 21 yrs + Sure you can get far with fake IDs, but I was blessed with the inability to lie convincingly. The second I was outed by a security guard for not being "Martha Pufferkins" I would burst into tears. With no other option westside all ages haunts like The Troubadour, The Roxy, and The Knitting Factory became my home away from home (well, home away from car).
Then magically I turned 21 yrs old and was able to broaden my music options considerably. Somehow I lost sight of the westside. It's been a long time since I've been immersed in that world and even longer since I've put on an event on thats side of town. After meeting the positively wonderful people who work for The Roxy I decided to give the Sunset Strip another chance.
Without further ado Rock Insider is very pleased to present Man Man with local favorites
Simon Dawes and The Ventriloquists April 5th at The Roxy Theatre!
Man Man's latest release Six Demon Bag is a raucous record filled with Vaudevillian character and punk rock crass. Pitchfork gave it an appropriate 8.3 rating. Records that break the norm to this degree are few and far between. Added bonus - The band's live show has long been heralded as "Totally Bananas." Download Six Demon Bag on iTUNES.
Simon Dawes had an insanely busy 2006. The Northridge, CA natives latest album, Carnivore, came out on Record Collection, the band hit the road with Band Of Horses, and somehow they found the time to set up shop at The Echo for a Free Monday Night Residency. With an arsenal of solid tracks founded in progressive folk Simon Dawes certainly entertain. Download Carnivore on ITUNES.
Tickets to the show are $10 in advance and $12 the day of the show. See you there!
