Disco Shrine – SOFT FUR EP [+ Release Party Friday 2/19]

The dichotomy of Disco Shrine is inherent in their name. Half party, half spiritual devotional to said party, they are damn serious about having a damn good time. And that’s what their debut EP Soft Fur is all about. Falling in love? Dance it up. Broken heart? Dance it out. Bored? Dance it through. Lazy? Just go home then.

With this sudden heat wave we’re having in L.A. it makes a person want to get out and get weird, amirite? Thankfully local good-time goddess Beating Lights has cooked up just the right concoction for our Friday night. Join the party at The Hi-Hat to celebrate Disco Shrine’s release of Soft Fur as well as sets by King Shelter and Tambourines. PLUS DJ sets by yours truly. And if you can still stand upright after all that, there are some extra pop-up goodies. It’s like a mini music festival but without any camping or dehydration. Rally the troops and see you there!

[LIVE] 7/9 @ The Spare Room: Molly Moore + Brandyn Burnette, & Le Swish

Another big night at The Spare Room tomorrow night!

Returning champs Le Swish will kick things off with their funked out indie pop grooves designed to move. I recommend bringing your own cocktail umbrellas for these guys.

Then Brandyn Burnette and Molly Moore return with a full band to bring the heat and grooves. Two great talents in their own right are even better when combining forces in one set.
