new show announcements coming soon!
"L.A. three-piece Derde Verde are just about to release their new EP, Let Me Be a Light, and the first track, “Tower,” is the stormer — it’s all noise and melody and then noise as melody, like something off Guided By Voice’s Isolation Drills. (Which, as you’ll recall, was part of their not-quite-so-lo-fi era.) And while Derde Verde don’t so slow down as much as they open up on the rest of this release, that same fractured pop sensibility persists all the way until EP closer “I Still Want Someone” ends with a crescendo of guitar-mangling feedback that doesn’t so much fade as evaporate. The spirits of bands like Sonic Youth, Yo La Tengo and Spoon are all at work here, but not always in the way you’d expect. It’s nice to see a group putting some independence back into indie rock." — LA WEEKLY
We’ve got one more show to wrap up the year… Come out and hear some new and old sounds. Been a good year. Let’s say cheers together.
