New Dani in Public EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Candidly speaking one’s mind, backed by electro-beats that are catalysts to dancing in a daydreaming state, Dani in Public exudes an earnest kinetic energy. On the Left & Right EP, Dani delves into the nonstop process of self-evaluation. Seamless welding of spoken-sung words into fluid motion, there’s an ability to process personal challenges with a soulful honesty and a lyrical sharpness that hits the mark head on.





Wake Up, SFV Fest Moved Amidst Venue Closure

On August 31st, the music school, retail shop, and de facto DIY venue White Oak Music & Arts will shutdown indefinitely due to continued noise complaints from neighbors. In light of this situation, the annual locals event Wake Up, SFV has been moved, and there will be no further known shows held at the venue for the remainder month.

White Oak (WOMA for short) has been a staple venue of the San Fernando Valley since 2013, picking up the torch when another DIY venue, Cobalt Crane, closed its doors. Headed by two individuals Carlos Costa and Evan Lindley, WOMA has been the stomping grounds for many Valley-based music collectives like [Redacted], TwoHearts Shows, MVMNT Presents, Dog the Cat, Vale Records, and more. Despite being a nexus for the 818 to cultivate musical talent and communities, repeated acts of littering, loitering, and rowdiness prompted residents to take their complaints up with the local authorities and landlord, according to a detailed Instagram post found in the tagged posts for #WOMAismyHOMA.

Wake Up, SFV, an all-ages music and art showcase, enters its sixth iteration this year and includes Valley veterans like The Unending Thread, Young Lovers, and Kid Cadaver. It will be held on September 1st at The Grand Palace in Arleta, CA. - Ryan Mo





Fantastic Plastic: Cities on Fire

Fantastic Plastic just released their first full-length album, Cities on Fire. Full of insatiable anger and bitter irony, Cities on Fire is a great catharsis for the shit show that is 2018 America. Songs “Parasites” and “Guilt Plea” have an incredibly tense, claustrophobic tone. You can feel your muscles instinctively clenching as you listen. Luckily, Cities on Fire also provides a great outlet for all that built up stress. Stylistically, the album is reminiscent of The Cramps and early Siouxsie Sioux. The vocals and lyrics run wild with their anxieties. Each song throws both the band and the audience into frenetic, chaotic movements. The guitar playing provides a nice balance to this chaos. The wavy, loose chords guide the audience through each song. They never lose their purpose and provide a nice sense of stability.

You can catch Fantastic Plastic at the Firkin Tavern September 21st, along with Retirement and Hollow Sidewalks

Rainsticks' new album 'Elkmont' brings back the pop sound of '60s and '70s

The other day I was listening to Crosby, Stills and Nash, and wondered what they'd sound like if the trio were on the scene today. Lo and behold, today I stumbled upon the indie/psych/pop group Rainsticks on Bandcamp. Fronted by Asher Horton, not only does the band bring back the best of old-school pop, using the same layers of vocal harmonies and basic instruments as the Beatles and the Beach Boys, but there's also a hint of psychedelia. This album is one to listen to from front to back, preferably through a stereo, on a Sunday. The music will wash over you like the afternoon sun. -Geena Kloeppel
