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.
With the recent release of their new EP, Deal Gone Wrong, Downtown/Union once again show their uncanny ability to craft smart, memorable songs, complete with bouncy, melodic bass lines, tasteful guitar licks, and group sing-a-long choruses.
For fans of rock n’ roll with a lot of heart and little pretense, Downtown/Union will fill the bill like black coffee and a hot piece of pie.
You can catch them every Friday at Casey’s in Downtown LA in April.
