This event is 18 and over
Los Angeles brothers and bandmates Mikaiah Lei (Lead Vocal, Guitar, Bass), and Anaiah Lei (Drums & Percussions, Backing Vocal), recorded their first album together when they were just 15 and 12, respectively. They self-released their first three albums and completed two Vans Warped Tours, two AFROPUNK Fests, countless European festivals, and support tours with Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Blur, Damon Albarn's Africa Express, Refused, and Bad Brains, among others.
Fall 2013 saw their debut release with FADER Label, the four-song EP Sincerely Sorry, with a full-length release slated for the summer of 2014. New York Times Magazine predicts, "They are on the cusp of stardom."
Lolawolf is a band from NYC fronted by Zoe Kravitz. The band also includes Jimmy, James and Raviv from Reputante, whose EP is out on Julian Casablancas' label, Cult Records. Lolawolf's debut EP will be released in early 2014 on Innit Recordings.
Pitchfork: "…surging electronic pop [that]…strikes the balance of Chromatics' bleary synth-driven brightness and Lana Del Rey's detached-yet-dramatized longing."
The Guardian: "Think Solange if she joined the Strokes and they finished that album of Quincy Jones-produced pop they were once rumoured to be making."
Vogue: "From the nostalgic melody of 'Drive,' an indulgent ode to L.A. insouciance, to the flippant, lovesick lyrics of "Wanna Have Fun," Lolawolf oscillates between a sort of West Coast cool and a grimy New York groove."
