This event is 21 and over
International sensation HOTT MT (Hour Of The Time Majesty Twelve), is an experimental post-pop collective based in Los Angeles, CA. HOTT MT is the result of an ongoing curiosity project between Queen Ashi Dala and Spooky Tavi, which expanded to include multi-instrumentalist Bahd Bad in December of 2011, and guitarist Guitty Dryver and drummer Chairman Towel in early 2012. Thoughts and anxieties about myth, experience, conspiracy theories, and Thailand fuel the groups explorations.
HOTT MT made headlines in 2012 when they drove from LA to Oklahoma City to pay homage to Wayne Coyne of The Flaming Lips. The trip resulted in a collaboration between Coyne and HOTT MT on the song “Never Hate Again”, as well as music for Ke$ha and Erykah Badu. “Never Hate Again” was released by Origami Vinyl in August 2012 with an accompanying video also featuring Coyne.
HOTT MT have recently returned to LA after showcasing at the SXSW music festival in Austin TX, and are currently working on new music with Artist / Producer Pop Levi. Their debut LP “I Made This” is slated for release May 21 on Manimal Vinyl / Frenchkiss. Other recent highlights include work w/ The Flaming Lips on a Stone Roses cover album (release TBD), live dates with Bat For Lashes, Wavves, Django Django, The Mynabirds, Vinyl Williams, Robert DeLong, Hands, and The Flaming Lips on their Guinness World Record-setting event.
Tapioca & The Flea
With their video game inspired synths, arpeggiated guitars, and pulsating bass lines, the East La indie-pop chillwavers are the kind of band that leave you feeling like a teenager in the 90's tripped out in a pool of reverb and rhythms. Expect the debut EP fall 2012.
Oh Boy Les Mecs
Electronic and Analog noisesmiths informed by: science fiction-forests- Northern lights-night swims in the ocean-future past present perfect dreamscapes- impulse narcotic purchases (no return policy)- and alien sightings in the desert (or the hope thereof).
The four men who call themselves GAZOOTIANS are mere representatives of revelation; guardians of sounds and scene as they bring together the assemblage point of Desert, Forest, Ocean, Mountain, and Moon. Received from the ether, and put into form, the band GAZOOTA shapes itself akin to the melodic whimsy of '60's Psychedelia, the avant-garde hypnotism of German Kraut-Rock, the theatrics and eccentricities of '70's Art Rock, the tones and vigor of Post-Punk/New Wave, the sweeping textures of British Shoegaze, and the organic-jazz-infused landscapes of Post-Rock, all floating on-top of Afro/Asianic inspired rhythms.
