“It’s too hot, the lines are too long, it’s so dusty.” The Coachella Music and Arts Festival may be a little of those things, but we love music and art too much to care. Here are some images from Sector 9’s 3 days of escapism!
Austin, Texas is one of the birthplaces of American psychedelic rock. It started with Roky Erickson’s 13 Floor Elevators, but is now completely under the control of The Black Angels. We were lucky enough to see them in their hometown recently and their new record, ‘Indigo Meadow’, came out today!
The L.A. experimental trio VUM has gained recent attention with their dark, noir sound. Jennifer Pearl’s beautiful, haunting vocals on their new single “I Will Return", were just featured in the L.A Times! Listen here and see them with us this Saturday at the Griffin.
The very first band we walked into at this year's SXSW was the heavy, Chelsea Light Moving. Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth fronts this very low-end driven, yet almost pop band on Matador records. Thank you Thurston! Listen to the single "Burroughs" here!
When James Newell Osterberg steps on a stage, the 65 year old transforms into what many have called “the true king of rock & roll”, Iggy Pop. On April 30th Iggy and The Stooges are back with their 5th studio album, ‘Ready To Die’, in a career spanning 40 years.
Hear the first single “Burn”, out today! Long live the godfather of punk!
