Battle Tapes is an electro synth rock band based in Los Angeles, California. Founded in late 2010 by frontman Josh Boardman, keyboardist Riley Mackin, bassist Stephen Bannister.
Battle Tapes released their first body of work, “Sleepwalker” in the summer of 2011. The self-released six- track EP features the standout track of the same name, as well as remix contributions from fellow up-and- coming artists. The group released their second EP, “Sweatshop Boys” in the spring of 2012, further blurring lines between indie rock and dance music.
Battle Tapes Perform regularly in Echo Park, Silverlake and Hollywood and have been regularly featured on Los Angeles radio station KCRW, various movie trailers, TV shows and video games including the 2013 Rockstar Games title Grand Theft Auto V.
P L a N E T S
The band underneath your bed, P L a N E T S, are a tricksy bunch. From their 4D performances smashed full of choreo-punk witch dancers, ghostly beasts and shadowy puppetry, to their haunted trip of a debut album; this band born in the woods and raised in Alhambra, CA smolders and burns.
Vibrating along with modern day musical auteurs such as Fever Ray and echoing ambitious rock acts like The Who, while drawing inspiration from the twisty television dramas Twin Peaks and The Twilight Zone, P L a N E T S will tangle you up in some sort of war dance in the woods where nothing is sacred except sweat, blood and the pursuit of darkness.
"Live, the 20 or so members make darkly compelling psych rock reminiscent of 'Red Right Hand'-era Nick Cave." --LA WEEKLY
“The garage band rowdiness of Iggy Pop or The Ramones with the theatricality of early Genesis, when Peter Gabriel fronted the band costumed as Magog or The Slipperman.” --EXAMINER
“P L a N E T S comprehensive and astounding number of artistic mediums created a show to enthrall all the senses. From 'Thriller'-esque dancers crawling up on the stage to dramatic werewolf theatrics, they put on the show of the night.” -KSPC
Black Belt Karate
Black Belt KARATE" come out of the gate en force, celebrating their debut 5-song EP Release "Volume 1" with a driving, melodic edge that echoes the brash energy and groove of LA prog-punkers At The Drive In, along with so-cal desert rock and gritty NYC-inspired attitude. Catch them at The Satellite on this LA stop of a west coast release party that includes San Diego and San Francisco.
