Sioux Falls

SHEER and Young Jesus performing with Sioux Falls, Cool American

Open wide: tonight, decibel diner pehrspace serves up a five-course meal for East LA with sommelier Bed Weather and maître Diy4Lyfe. Alex Nevins (fka Songs for Ghosts to Haunt to) cleanses the palette with a selection of acoustic amuse-bouche as Simi Valley shoegazers SHEER stir a hunger fierce with their debut album Uneasy. 

Chicagoan settlers Young Jesus make good on their promise to sate volume-starved fans after a close call at Emerald House, and Portland touring bands Sioux Falls and Cool American will likely leave Echo Park yearning for seconds — you'll be relieved to know that the Oregonians are also playing Thursday at Fullerton's Programme HQ. Bon apetit. - Ryan Mo

   

Little Ass Boombox 3.28.14

The annual Big Ass Boombox Festival is a free showcase of a huge spread of up-and-coming local bands and writers. Building from the festival’s success, the monthly showcase, Lil’ Ass B-Bo, as everybody is calling it, offers a smaller sample of great new bands, authors, and starting this month, comedians. This month's lineup includes Sweet Tooth, Adam Brock 4, Family Night, Max Fortune, and Sioux Falls. You gotta catch 'em all, but definitely catch Adam Brock 4 for sweet pop tunes somewhere between jazz and folk with remarkable vocals, and sioux Falls for a throwback to late 90's indie pop reminiscent to early Modest Mouse crossed with Foo Fighters. 

Little Ass Boombox is happening Friday, 3.28.14 at Kelly’s Olympian. The show is free. - Chandler Strutz
