Cataldo / Plastic Picnic
901 E 1st St
Los Angeles, CA, 90012
This event is 21 and over
Cataldo has been hailed as “the rare kind of artist who’s able to absorb the chaotic world around him and distill it into crystalline song…with an eye for telling detail and an ear for unusual sonic textures” by American Songwriter. Their 2017 release Keepers has been welcomed as “nostalgic, and effortlessly, poetically profound,” by Nylon and “wistful and hopeful and beautiful, a brightly emotive yet understated slow-build that splits the difference between Anderson associate Ben Gibbard’s pensive indie rock stylings and rhythmically complex pop worthy of an ’80s teen movie’s closing credits” by Stereogum. Cataldo's 6th release "Literally Main Street" is due September 27th
Plastic Picnic is made up of four Pacific Northwest transplants who were brought together by a mutual friend after moving to New York.
In 2017, the four piece teamed up with producers Ted Young (Kurt Vile, Sonic Youth) and Ariel Loh (Yoke Lore) to record their debut EP. After touring throughout 2018, the band holed up in a converted barn studio with Trevor Spencer (Father John Misty, Fleet Foxes) to record their sophomore EP, Vistalite.
Described by Billboard as an “indie post rock project soundtracking a John Hughes movie,” Plastic Picnic achieves the cinematic pop-nostalgia of the 1980s with their atmospheric synth and guitar work.
Distilling the psych-driven guitars of Tame Impala and theatricality of Queen, Le Shiv brings an indelible edge to the indie-rock landscape. After playing sold out shows and touring the country with the likes of Grouplove as The Ruminaters in Australia, the Sydney natives, Pencil (vocals/guitar), Mossy (guitar), and Jarleth (bass) relocated to Los Angeles in 2018 to spearhead a new project as Le Shiv. Their spellbinding melodies and eccentric energy are not to be missed.
