This Wednesday at 7pm we have a free in-store with Wargirl. One might experience War Girl as a sort of time portal to a 60’s music festival where The Upsetters, Fela Kuti, Chaka Khan and War became one damn sexy, revolutionary band: subversive lyrics are counterpointed against groovy, danceable rhythms and political statements become a hip-swaying, danceable affair, couched in a rainbow of musical flavors and colors touching on Afrobeat, reggae, and So Cal garage rock.
War Girl is the invention of Matt Wignall, OG producer of the Cold War Kids – who had spent the last several years kicking songs around his [largely analog] recording studio, Tackyland, in Long Beach, California. In fact, Tackyland is almost the first band member of War Girl, given that it has the space and the energy to support the creation of deep, honest sound-the kind of sound that infused songs like “Hang Me Out To Dry” and “Hospital Beds” for the Cold War Kids, which were birthed there some 10 years ago.
Joining Wignall are Ecuadorian percussionist and drummer Erick Diego Nieto who learned percussion and juggling in an Ecuadorian clown school, (and was brought to America by his mother in the 90’s with a suitcase and the beat up drum kit he still plays to this day). Also on percussion Jeff Suri, who grew up in Long Beach under the tutelage of local hero Stephan Hodges (Tom Waits, Mike Watt, David Lynch) whose techniques included having a 12-year old Suri do Mickey Hart yoga techniques as practice. These first songs were recorded live to tape with Nathan Willet & Matt Maust of Cold War Kids, on bass and organ. During the course of these recordings their latest single blew up and they were replaced live with Tamara Raye and Enya Preston on bass and keyboards. Sharing vocals are Anne Dereaux and Marika Dahlin. You can preview some songs on soy cloud to see for yourself. The guest list is open with RSVP to the store and we will be offering lathe cut copies of their super-limited 10″ record. Let us know if you want to come at (562)433-4996 #wargirl #instoresfp #mattwignall #coldwarkids #allagesshowsinlongbeach #freeshowsinlongbeach #wargirlband

Beginning with their first LP “Everything All The Time”, Band of Horses have been a mainstay of indie rock for a decade with 4 studio albums in total, including 2010’s Grammy-nominated “Infinite Arms” and “Mirage Rock”, produced by the legendary Glyn Johns. Formed and led by singer and songwriter Ben Bridwell, the South Carolina-based band have given us many much-loved singles, including “The Funeral” and “No One’s Gonna Love You”, and have played globe-spanning headline tours as well as dates with greats like Pearl Jam and Neil Young. Next on the horizon this June, Band of Horses are releasing their highly-anticipated fifth studio album, “Why Are You OK”, co-produced by the band and Jason Lytle and executive produced by Rick Rubin.
We are ecstatic to welcome Band Of Horses to our stage for a very special acoustic performance on Monday, May 30th at 4:00pm. It’s Memorial Day, so plan accordingly. We are opening the guest list for this very special event with pre-order of Why Are You OK (CD or LP). Pre-orders will receive goodies, including an event posters and a t-shirt. If space allows, we will open the list first come first served when we are closer, and folks who pre-ordered will get priority entry. Fair Warning: we don’t expect this to happen. Pre-order in person or by calling 562.433.4996. #instoresfp #bandofhorses #whyareyouok
