The Blackeyed Soul Club (10:15pm - 2am)
The Blackeyed Soul Club is an underground sixties Soul / rock 'n' roll club based at The (http://www.thesatellitela.com/). Run by DJ's Jason Pandora and Howie Pyro who are looking for a way to give Los Angeles the kind of club where Mods, Rockers and anyone with an ear for good music and sharp style can come and DANCE to the obscure, great and downright delicious vinyl monsters that have been lighting up dance floors, and leading the way for DJ's all over the globe.
The records played range from the late 50s greasy RnB, to the Storming Soul of the 60s, to US Garage and British Beat. Tunes that slipped through the cracks the first time around, that are being resurrected by the most discerning. The club values itself on assembling a DJ roster with one thing in mind – the dance floor. Alongside the rare records that never made it, you're likely to hear someone dropping those heavy Motown sides that you know and love. The difference is, in this mix all these tunes sound as relevant as the day they were first released.
The Blackeyed Soul Club is a place for vinyl purists, it's a place for Mods, Rockabilly kids, Indie types but most of all it is for those who want to come, dance, and party without being patronized or intimidated by the usual 'sixties' scenes. It’s for anybody and everybody.
The only Johnny Thunders tribute band on the face of this lonely planet. And it's fronted by a girl.
The Mo Odds
For the last few years The Mo-Odds have been one of the sweatiest, nakedest, rawest, and funnest rock n' roll acts in Los Angeles County. The band christened their signature sound in their first demo Los Angeles Rock and Roll, a no-nonsense garage release with roots in the punk and soul that has been worrying parents and shaking hips for six decades.
The LA Weekly describes The Mo-Odds as, "equal parts fuzz and soul, drunkenly crash-landing somewhere between the high-energy Detroit rock of the Bell-Rays and the high-personality Detroit R&B of the Gories." Owl Mag describes the Mo-Odds as "chaotic, dirty, dangerous, nasty, and alive." Mainstays of the Silverlake Jubilee Festival, their over-the-top shows earned them a reputation.
With the Mo-Odds' latest EP, Soto, they have crafted a 4 song EP that has housebroken the signature frantic energy of the band with a tight studio sound based around big vocals and sharp woodwinds. From the immediately catchy riffs of "It's My Heart" to the infectious rhythms of "Lights Go Out" to the confrontational lyrics and unrestrained vocal delivery of "Smoke & Fog"; with equal measure energy and fidelity, this is their focus as of now.
