A good friend of mine called me and said, “dude, you have to check out this guy who raps in a bear suit!”. So, like a good friend I listened to “the guy in a bear suit”. And I have to say, the dude has rhymes! He calls himself Animal Raps. And he raps about animals! Duh! Check out Animal Raps every Saturday at Casey’s with a special guest each week. No Cover. Just rhymes, and a bear suit.
This year we have quite an event for you. Courtesy of our sponsor Herradura, we will be serving $5 Margaritas, $5 Herradura Silver shots and $4 Modello Especial cans. Julio Arenas (voted best street taco in LA) will be selling his street tacos on the patio for $1.50 a piece (Chicken, Carne Asada, Pastor and Chorizo). Because Cinco De Mayo is such a celebrated holiday the bar will be open from noon until close. Come on in and celebrate the 5th of May with us!
Casey’s Irish Pub – Downtown/Union
LA’s indie-driven rock band, Downtown/Union, has been a regular fixture in local music scene since 2006. Although the band has been through many incarnations, from a stripped down two-piece to a bombastic seven member rock n’ roll gang, principle song writers, B. Bory and Jeff Electric, have always managed to consistently churn out catchy, high powered, heartfelt songs. This time around, the band has solidified its ranks by adding new permanent members, bass guitarist, Andy Bartlett, and veteran guitar wielder, John Klein, to the lineup, giving them a renewed sense of purpose, energy, and focus; not to mention a whole new batch of tunes.
Caña Rum Bar – Native Wayne
Tonight Grammy-winning reggae luminary Wayne Hobson, also known as Native Wayne to his Indie 103 fans, will be behind the wheels of steel bringing us the good vibes via an eclectic set of classic reggae, dancehall, afrobeat, and whatever else he deems worthy of your listening pleasure. It’s Friday night, so if you’d like to ensure yourself a table or bring more than three guests, reservations are necessary. Right near the beach… Boyyyyyyyyyy!
Las Perlas – Kapsoul Records
What does Jazz, Funk, Soul, Rare Groove Disco have in common with Tequila? Las Perlas!!!! That’s right Kapsoul Records presents every Friday at Las Perlas with DJ Kap, Ohmae & Chikaramanga. Come in and get drunk…. Or stay sober depending on what you’re in to.

Casey’s Irish Pub – Modern Time Machines
Modern Time Machines’ blend of gauzy space rock atmospherics plus pop songwriting sensibility that has drawn comparisons to Sonic Youth, Medicine, and Silversun Pickups, yet they have crafted their own unique, distinctive sound. MTM combine ’60s psychedelia, boy/girl vocal harmonies, feedback-laced love songs and yes, time travel, into a riotous melange of beautiful noise.
Las Perlas – DJ Darren Revell
