The Echo Presents
Monday Night Residency - Automatic
Egrets on Ergot, C57BL/6, Terminal A, POW!
1822 W Sunset Blvd
Los Angeles, California, 90026
This event is 21 and over
Formed in late 2017, Automatic is a promising band to watch in Los Angeles’ oversaturated scene. Bored with guitar music and traditional song structures, the post-punk trio comprised of Izzy Glaudini (synth/vocals), Halle Saxon Gaines (bass/vocals) and Lola Dompe (drums/vocals) has set off on their own unique path, marrying the avant-garde synth experimentation of Suicide with the driving motorik rhythms of Neu! And Can. Their debut EP, recorded by Richard James and Joo-Joo Ashworth (Froth), quickly made the rounds through LA’s underground, showcasing a Broadcast-inspired pop sensibility as a counterpoint to their aggressive synth-punk approach. In just a few short months, the band has garnered the attention of some of Southern California’s major players, earning them support slots for the likes of Poptone (ex-Bauhaus/Love and Rockets/Tones on Tail) and Surfbort.
Egrets on Ergot
Egrets On Ergot's sound has been described as versatile: from moody, gothy artpunk to funky rhythmic, pseudo-no wave with a smattering of industrial clamor. The four piece live in the Silverlake/Echo Park area of Los Angeles and will debut their fist full length album (vinyl and digital) this October through Cleopatra Records, produced by LA punk veteran Paul Roessler of The Screamers, 45 Grave, Nina Hagen Band.
" Egrets On Ergot, one of the most promising and original acts haunting the LA rock scene..."
- The LA BEAT
"This band’s commitment to the total rockist blitzkrieg aesthetic is a noble thing to hear in this watery pop-ridden age and the now-capacity crowd let go of them with loud reluctance."
- LA Record
"What transpired on stage that evening was a bit of a phenomenon that I am frankly at a loss to effectively describe. "

In this delusive world
I viewed the moon
two years too long.
POW! emerges from the tech-waste of the shiny/shitty new San Francisco - deep 80’s synth bass percolating under the circuit-swamp-fried-egg guitar…the drums a teenage tiger’s heartbeat and vocals delivered like a dead-pan face-slap from a kid half your age.
