CHANDRA + CRUEL SUMMER + MISS RAYON + LUNCH LADY

Chandra

CHANDRA aka Chandra Oppenheim was Hell’s Kitchen’s youngest no waver in 1980: at age 12, Chandra and her adult band (feat members of The Dance) released the discordant, danceable “mutant disco” EP Transportation with the help of Chandra’s dad, conceptual artist Dennis Oppenheim. Chandra – the band – were steeped in New York’s prolific post-punk, funk and no wave scenes, but until recently their music was largely forgotten. But a new reissue, along with forthcoming live shows, is bringing Chandra’s story back into focus. “I thought it would be three years before I picked up this music again,” says Oppenheim, now 50. “But it’s been more like three decades.” This will be her very 1st live show in Los Angeles! For fans of ESG, Delta 5, The Dance, Liliput, Y Pants, Maximum Joy and other Mutant Disco conteimporaries...

Cruel Summer

CRUEL SUMMER offer a fuzzy bliss dream of shimmering guitars and hazy, fuzzy pop. Reminiscent of the mid to late 80's C86 and SARAH sound with a dash of 4AD's hazy early 90's catalogue. A nod to hours spent as a teenager in the late 80s digging through NME and Melody Maker issues to find out who the secret overseas DIY pop hit-makers were. Pick up their brill debut 12" in stunning die-cut sleeve, courtesy Mt.st.mtn and dream a little louder...

Miss Rayon

Portland, Oregon’s MISS RAYON was started by Detroit/Flint Michigan area native, Eric Sabatino, after years of playing with numerous Portland bands left him craving a project where he could follow his personal influences. Residing somewhere on the spectrum between New York no wave and Manchester post-punk, one can hear influences as broad as Sonic Youth, Yoko Ono, ESG and Magazine.

Cal-punk four piece, LUNCH LADY, is the sum of its many parts. In the past, members Rachel Birke (27), Victor Herrera (32), Juan Velasquez (32), and Robert Wolfe (29), performed in celebrated DIY bands like Abe Vigoda, Heller Keller, Roses, and Stephanie, amassing individual cult followings with each respective project. In the summer of 2016, long time friends and collaborators, Birke and Velasquez dreamt of a band that married their mutual love of Southern California punk acts like X and Suburban Lawns with their fascination American Kitsch. After continuing to talk about it over a number of weeks, the pair decided to make the fictional band in their mind a reality and enlisted their friends from the scene, percussionist Robert Wolfe and bass player Victor Herrera, for the rhythm section. Once assembled, the four members tossed around a few names before landing on Lunch Lady, a name Birke suggested, given the campy American nostalgia that hit all of your senses after hearing it said out loud.
