01.25: Glass Beach raises hell, brings tour to The Echo

To miss Glass Beach's show at The Echo on January 25th would add more sorrow to the world. The post-emo indie rockers have set out on their West Coast tour, which will take them up and down the Pacific Coast and into Nevada. The band has just signed with Run For Cover Records for a vinyl re-release of their debut album; since the signing, their following on social media has grown. Michigan-based group Dogleg -- another up-and-coming indie punk tour-de-force -- and fellow emo-punk rockers Kara's Walk Home will join Glass Beach for this must-see show. Get yourself ready by listening to the first track on the band's debut album, "classic j dies and goes to hell part 1", below. - Will Sisskind

02.28: Split Moon put out intense new record "Slow Satellite"

Those with a vested interest in LA's shoegaze community shouldn't sleep on Split Moon, who will release their newest album Slow Satellite on February 28th. The project of singer and guitarist Mark Starr, this rebirth of the band LEAF creates music that sounds like a whole symphony; the wailing of Starr's guitar layers over and over upon itself, washing you with waves of trance-inducing sound. The group's first single from Slow Satellite, "Shades", has the post-punk elements of Joy Division and the shoegaze bliss of My Bloody Valentine and Swervedriver; take a listen to it below. - Will Sisskind

   

01.23: CAPYAC bring the funk and new single to Moroccan Lounge

CAPYAC bring the party wherever they perform, so catch them livening up your Thursday night at Moroccan Lounge on January 23rd. The show precedes the release of the electro-funk duo's upcoming single "Dirty", which drops on January 31st. With festival performances and upcoming shows planned for Paris, Berlin, London, Copenhagen, Tijuana, Costa Mesa, and more, 2020 looks to keep CAPYAC busy electrifying crowds with their surreal dance and music act, during which anything can happen (including surprise pancakes, puppets, or impromptu improvisations which disappear into memory as soon as they're done). If you want to see what tricks CAPYAC have up their sleeve this year, catch them on January 23rd at Moroccan Lounge. First, check out their latest video, done for a collaboration with songwriter Annabelle Maginnis called "Little Toes". - Will Sisskind
