Every second and forth Thursday's (9pm-2am) are Licorice at Monty Bar. A rather decadent taste of vintage disco, funk, soul and deep boogie flavors provided by Aaron "Destroyer" Paar & Friends. Wallflowers severely frowned upon and experience is a must so 21+.
On the heels of their stunning record release show last month at
The Irenic, ILYA takes it down a notch and gets intimate at Seven
Grand on Thursday May 22. The April 1 release of, In Blood, their 3rd studio album has launched ILYA back into the spotlight. In Blood is a collection of dark beautiful songs with deep attention to dynamics and mood, and a precision-like love for the subtleties and silence too often overlooked. A culmination of sounds and words so weighted you feel crushed, yet heightened by a delicate floating layer of hope, that leaves you clawing and scratching for more. For this special intimate occasion you can expect ILYA to bring down the volume and highlight the hauntingly beautiful voice of their front
woman – Blanca Fowler. ILYA will be joined at Seven Grand on May 22 by LIFE, featuring Kenseth Thibideau, known for his contributions to Sleeping People, Pinback, Three Mile Pilot and more. LIFE also features Brandon Relf, also of Sleeping People, as well as members of Goodbye Blue Monday, Black Heart Procession, and Manuok.
Caña Rum Bar presents Latido every Thursday! Featuring Anthony Valadez of 89.9 FM KCRW spinning World Sounds, Cumbia, Dub, Afrobeat, Samba, Soul, Latin, Roots, Punjabi, Mas and about every other type of world music that contains drums. Bring your dancing shoes because normal shoes will just not do.
