Check out Ramiro's experience at Low End Theory Festival, LA's yearly commemeration of electronic and underground hip-hop!
Tuesday: The Cinematic Orchestra (at the Troubadour) I cannot express how incredible they are live, you will have to experience it for yourself. If you aren't familiar with their music, its jazzy, electronic, and soothing. My favorite album of theirs, Man with a Movie Camera was written as a soundtrack to the 1929 Russian silent film of the same name. Somewhere on the internet you can find the movie with the soundtrack applied to it (here's a preview on youtube, where you can watch the whole thing in 9 parts) -it's the coolest thing ever. Everything lines up perfectly. But I digress, go see them live, you will not be disappointed. Wednesday The Low End Theory is a night at a club called The Airliner in Downtown LA. If you haven't caught on yet, it is hip hop based yet many electronic artists DJ there frequently. Resident DJ's incude Daddy Kev, Nobody, Gaslamp Killer, D-Styles among others. This week they are celebrating Big Dada rapper K-the-I???'s (yes that's his name) release party. Next month, Flying Lotus will be making an appearance that you will not want to miss. (18+) Thursday El Guincho is playing at the echo. He's a crazy dude from Spain who makes tribe-like worldly pop music. Guaranteed to give you a good show and a fun time. And for those 21+, a bit of a party will be going down at the Roosevelt Hotel with a pop-up store from my favorite vintage/designer clothes store, Apartment 3. There will be music, swimming, and shopping and it will be happening weekly. Here's the info. Friday The one and only DAEDELUS (+ Busdriver, etc) at the one and only Ground Zero Coffee House brought to you by us, KSCR. $5 donation would be nice, yes. And if you can't appreciate Daedelus's music, please get yourself checked, and if you haven't heard him, check him out!!! Saturday: Hauschka and Tom Brosseau at Largo (i think its 21+) I'm going to have to oppress my ridiculous fan-girl excitement but OH MY GOD. Tom Brosseau has the most beautiful voice ever. He goes around with a guitar and serenades the world with his woeful songs. And Hauschka put out one of my favorite albums this year - Ferndorf. A mix of classical, ambient, electronic beauty. If there was a genre for him, it would be "experimental piano." And that is all I know of so far. Have fun and be safe people.
