Friday, April 27th


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.

Saturday, April 28th


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
Las Perlas welcomes DJ Darren Revell from 103′s Big Sonic Heaven tonight. Darren will be spinning everything from Post Punk to New Wave to Eighties so grab your head bands and leg warmers and get on down here. We’ll see you then!

Caña Rum Bar – Music Selector Jose Galvan
Its time for you to stop living and start winning! What better way to do that than to join us @ Caña Rum Bar for Jose Galvan. Tonight and every Saturday night Jose joins us playing Latin Alternative, Funky Beats and Caribbean Rhythms. We will also be serving some of the most delicious rum cocktails ever to have touched your tongue. Get in here and get some!

Seven Grand – Opening at 8pm Tonight!

Gods of Macho at Casey’s every Friday in May

April 24th, 2012 — 4:26pm


They wear pink. And they fucking rock! It’s true, some dudes can wear pink and still kick your ass. Don’t worry, The Gods of Macho won’t literally beat you up but they will wear pink. And might call upon the power of Satan to give them the power to to rock harder than any other band, in the world! I was just thinking, what would Lemmy from Motorhead look like in pink? Anyways, about The Gods of Macho…They are a hard rock band from Los Angeles who play it loud and heavy. And it’s the perfect chaser to your shots of Jameson. It doesn’t matter if you likes glam punk, metal, even did the humpty dance once or twice in your lifetime, you will love The Gods of Macho. I guarantee it. And if you’re not sold at the end of the show I won’t refund yo anything. It’s FREE all month! Get used to it!

Do your ears a favor and listen to me champ, You’ll be glad you did!

They also have a new e.p. coming out in May as well. Hear all the new shit!
