The Dead Ships
A lot has happened for LA Weekly’s Best Band of 2016 - The Dead Ships - in the short time that they’ve been together. Within a couple of months after singer/guitarist Devin McCluskey and drummer Chris Spindelilus started jamming in the latter’s apartment, the soulful garage rock duo were playing sold out shows at The Echo in their native Los Angeles and at San Francisco’s Bottom Of The Hill. They quickly became the most talked-about live show in L.A., picking up airplay on radio giant KROQ where their song ‘Big Quiet’ spent five weeks in the number one slot on the station’s star-making Locals Only show. The band was hand-picked by Goldenvoice to perform at Coachella 2016, where they won over the crowd with their punchy hooks and wiry on-stage energy. Now, it’s time for the world to really get to know The Dead Ships as they celebrate the release of their debut full-length album CITYCIDE. Produced by Broken Social Scene’sBrendan Canning, the now-trio with Alex Moore on bass put together a fiery collection of songs that showcase McCluskey’s engaging yowl and an unrelenting drive that refuses to let up on the gas pedal until the last notes of album closer ‘Tomorrow’s Crashes’ fade away. The band kicked off 2016 with a sold-out tour of the U.S. opening for Les Butcherettes and stopping by SXSW before their triumph at Coachella. This was followed up with a string of dates with The Cult and Summer festival slots. For the immediate future, expect more touring and a follow up LP.
Kim and the Created
"Kim and The Created is the brainchild of fearless performer singer-songwriter Kim House. Her unstoppable force is combined with powerhouse anchoring drummer, Patrick Glendening. The duo creates a strangely unique, earth-shattering sound that bounces off the walls, just like you'll see Kim doing herself. The never-not-moving into alien-like contortions, and with a stare that enters your soul, she will rattle you to your bones. Most recently, coming off 2 tours with The Kills, opening for Alice Cooper & his Legendary Manager Shep Gordon, muse to famed Hedi Slimane of Yves Saint Laurent, named Vice Magazines 'New leading Lady of Punk' & V Magazines ‘Top 100 Rockstars,’ as well as multiple sold out releases on multiple media formats. Be sure to catch this never-before-seen-like-it band.”
FACIAL does not have a cute story. it wasn't a band and now it is and will not be again later. FACIAL is from Los Angeles but do not like the beach. FACIAL likes food but does not like brunch. Someone once said about FACIAL, "Yep, it's a band."
“The Dead Ships, originally scheduled to perform on February 2, 2017, is rescheduled for March 1, 2017. All other event details remain the same; all current tickets will be valid for the new date, otherwise refunds at point of purchase.”
