NOTS
NOTS
NOTS are a 4 piece, all XX, “nuevo no wavo” band from Memphis, TN. Unpredictable guitars, celestial synths, and punctuated vocals swirl around the repetition of a powerful rhythm section to form a sound and a live show not easily classifiable but entirely addictive. Drummer Charlotte Watson and guitarist / frontwoman Natalie Hoffmann are the band’s two constants throughout a handful of roster changes. NOTS’ current lineup also includes Alexandra Eastburn on synth, an instrument she picked up to join NOTS and to record on their first full-length LP We Are Nots, and bassist Meredith Lones, another new Memphis musician, and the most recent addition to the band. NOTS’ newest punk-noise-psych-collision 7”, Virgin Mary, aggressively follows on the heels of their debut LP, foreshadowing an ever expanding experiment in direction of things to come for the band. Don’t miss out.
Batwings Catwings
Batwings Catwings
LA's Batwings Catwings are that band on the brink, ready to break. They have a everything ready to kick off the spring of 2016 in a big way with a new EP 12" Vinyl release with Broken World Media. Their home turf is the legendary alley-way DIY venue The Smell, located in downtown Los Angeles. Home to bands like No Age, HEALTH, Bleached, Best Coast, HAIM, FIDLAR and Girlpool, Batwings Catwings were formed from that same smelly alley. Despite the filth, BWCW comes out gleaming with shiny rock songs that are undeniably catchy. Their live shows (recently sharing tour dates with METZ, Cloud Nothings, CSS, Future Islands and Tilly & the Wall) are fronted by Dana Poblete, an everygirl with the ability to entrance audiences with her frenetic energy and deceptively powerful how. The other four guys are all seasoned LA music community staples whom carry on that ecstatic energy that you can come to expect from Batwings Catwings. Oh, and at any given time, you'll find them geekin' out on NBA basketball, comic books or just plain talkin' about music. Ask them about it!
FRENCH VANILLA
FRENCH VANILLA
French Vanilla is an art-punk band based in Los Angeles that regulates the dance floor with punchy bass lines, catchy sax hooks and socially engaged lyrics. They began partially driven by a desire to challenge the established SoCal music scene, dominated by a few influential (male) tastemakers, and they continue to be motivated by connecting with like-minded audiences. Originating in LA’s queer punk underground, the band's ideology assumes the generative nature of women’s and/or BFF’s collaboration, a message they want to spread until all dude-rock bands cease to exist. More than anything, FV wants you to have fun at their shows and they deliver impassioned performances with infectious energy and enthusiasm.
