The Mae Shi @ Spaceland, 7/1
The Mae Shi played to an enthusiastic home crowd the other night at Spaceland, their last Los Angeles show before they rocket off across America in support of their fantastic album HLLLYH. The audience was lucky to have drummer & vocalist Brad Breeck in the house (he doesn't usually tour with the band), and the infamous Mae Sheet made a guest appearance.
The Mae Shi are legendary for their explosive, interactive live performances; it's almost impossible to get a good picture of the boys as they vibrate about the stage in a punk rock frenzy. The set was short, but included highlights from HLLLYH as well as their previous releases, Heartbeeps and Terrorbird.
If you missed them this time around, they'll be back in town at the end of August, playing a few shows around town, including a highly anticipated gig with The Germs at the Echo. Don't miss one of L.A.'s best live bands! The Mae Shi Myspace.
