The Rumble - Los Angeles


This Thursday the sin-famous? (sorry) Rumble continues to LA on its trek along the coast systematically leading up to its 4 Rumble Parties at SXSW in Austin.  With 3 Clubs in Hollywood playing host to Rumspringa, Twin Tigers and The Beaters it is sure to be a heart melting, soul soothing and ass shaking night of romantic proportions.

Rumspringa has been hailed as LA's best kept secret with their (forgive me for this word) groovy, yet soulful psychedelic rock.  They have massaged LA's ears with their gently soothing sounds through residencies at The Echo and are sure to set people's hearts on fire at SXSW this year.  

Twin Tigers continue their Rumble tour at this LA event laying down their dreamy, shimmery sounds awash with melody and screeching guitars.  Their spacial experience is not to be missed. 

The Beaters are a jarring, edgy and experimental punk outfit from San Diego.  Their sounds laden with harmonies and jumpy fast paced rhythms should surely antagonize the crowd into a frenzy, in the best way possible of course, with great music.

With all this plus DJ S.I.S and it being free you would be a brain-dead fool to not commit your night to this.  Fool i say!

The Rumble - San Francisco


The infamous Rumble is back in San Francisco tomorrow with a line up that is sure to tantalize and terrorize your fertile listening holes.  San Frans own Lilofee wil be performing alongside noise-dream pop merchants Twin Tigers and workaholics and collaborating genius's Stripmall Architecture who are soon to release new album Feathersongs for Factory Girls.  Plus none other then DJ Bagel Ted.

This is sure to be the best hangover party for the now ending Noise Pop Festival which featured, Yoko Ono and Cornelius among amazing artists.

There is no way to hide our absolute LOVE for LILOFEE. We put out their 7" vinyl for the single, 'Runaway' at the end of 2009, and are set to drop their second single, 'Destroy Me' (+a video + a remix) on Future Sounds Records in March. Stay tuned for more info on that release.

STRIPMALL ARCHITECTURE we were just introduced to but after listening to the Myspace songs and vibing their influences, we're instant fans. Here's what the SF WEEKLY had to say:
"Does the mention of a band somewhere in-between Sigur Ros and the Cocteau Twins make those little hairs on the back of your neck tingle? If so, you owe it to yourself to check for Stripmall Architecture's show." Resident DJ, BAGEL TED, will handle the DJ duties.

That leads us to TWIN TIGERS from Athens, Georgia, a band that will be playing through the circuit starting in SF, into LA, San Diego, and will be playing THE RUMBLE: LAS VEGAS that will be a part of the NEON REVERB MUSIC FESTIVAL on the 12th. They will keep the wheels turning to Austin and will be playing THE RUMBLE @ SXSW at Shangra La, as well as 6 other parties (including the WOXY Official SXSW showcase @ Emo's Annex on Friday night).

Come and be Merry at Cafe Du Nord 3/3/10 in other words Tomorrow!
