[PARTY] Pompeya + Beginners + Adam Johan @ The Spare Room 3/10

Anybody that was reading The Burning Ear back in 2011 knows how much I love Moscow’s Pompeya so it’s no surprise that I’m beyond excited to host them this Thursday at The Spare Room. These guys are finally starting to get the love they deserve and their live set is full of all the big bass grooves and tropical touches that we all love.

We also have Los Angeles newcomers Beginners playing! This EP is so solid and catchy I would make sure you come see them now before they blow up big time.I’ll definitely be singing along up front!

And finally, Los Angeles producer Adam Johan will be spinning between sets and after. Adam caught my ear big time with his Banks remix and between sneaking it into every one of my DJ sets I’ve been getting into his originals as well. Some serious talent here so really looking forward to his sets.


[PARTY] Pre-Cella Boogaloo! – With DJ sets from TBE, Hot Cops, Littlebear, and more!

Calling all Los Angeles party people! The pre-Coachella dance party to be at is this Saturday at the awesome Lyric Theater. I will be DJing along with some other great homies like Hot Cops, Littlebear, Danny Parra, and Midnight Boy. Good times will be had by all! If you have never been to The Lyric then this is THE NIGHT! Amazing sound system coupled with the fact that its basically an art gallery of weird and wonderful stuff.

[PARTY] FMLYBND, Scouts, Troubadour Parade (+secret guest) 3/29 @ The Satellite

Good thing you weren’t that into your Saturday night plans anyway because now you can drop em like cold fries and come rock out with The Burning Ear at the FMLYBND show tomorrow night! Special guests include Scouts and Troubadour Parade and one that I cant even mention…


Get into the mooood for love/fun/dancing.

TeamMate – “Love Is Love” + “Sequal” + LA Show @ Blind Date 3/26

The LA/Philly duo of Teammate were born of love, respect, and the ultimate understand that a broken relationship doesn’t mean they shouldn’t stay “teammates” (See “Sequal” below). They kick out the kind of feel good synth pop jams that make you want to sing along at the top of your lungs. And that is exactly what I’ll be doing to “Love Is Love” when they play Blind Date with Pollimer and Magic Giant tomorrow night here in LA!


[MP3] Das Tapes – “Fetish”

Das Tapes just dropped a hot slice of funky goodness in time for their night at The Spare Room tonight! “Fetish” blends the tropical funk of Toro Y Moi with the hypersex of Chromeo for a jam sure to fog your windows.

Come see Das Tapes tonight in LA!


Pollimer – “On The Run” + LA Show @ Blind Date 3/26

Los Angeles’ Pollimer extended some sunshine into the fall with last year’s “Summer Nights” and it’s good to have him back in time for spring. “On The Run” kicks a bit more folk into the mix, with strumming guitars and crisp vocals riding through rousing strings and percussion.

I couldn’t be more excited to have Pollimer playing this month’s Blind Date showcase. Catch him at The Bootleg on March 26th with Teammate and Magic Giant!


[LA EVENT] Das Tapes & Bee’s Knees @ The Spare Room Hollywood

Los Angeles is about to get sexy on Thursday! Masters of funk, Das Tapes, will be kicking out 2 live sets. Getting weird and wonderful in the way that only they can do. Their live show is a sight to behold and witnessing it in the intimate setting of The Spare Room will be a special thing to be sure.

DJing in between sets from Das Tapes will be Los Angeles DJ and production duo Bee’s Knees. Besides kicking out some of my favorite remixes of 2013, these guys rocked the house at The Burning Ear 5 Year Birthday Bash. I’m very excited to see them again!
