Our Pick: FYF Pre-Party feat. Delorean, Superhumanoids and special guests @ Grand Star Jazz Club
LA-based electro pop duo Kisses, a small, newfangled splinter of Princeton (LAist Interview), will be taking on the Echoplex with Oakland-based experimental electro outfit Hawnay Troof. LA-based electro-infused indie rock trio the Delta Mirror are poised to grace Spaceland. And, lastly, local psych-infused rockers Sky Parade, which of course is led by former Brian Jonestown Massacre bassist Tommy Dietrick, will be headlining the Bootleg Theater. But we strongly kicking the FYF festivities into gear by attending the official pre-party at Grand Star Jazz Club in Downtown. LAist favotires, Spanish electro pop outfit Delorean and local indie pop quartet Superhumanoids are slated to perform. We've heard through the grapevine that Brooklyn-based shoegaze-infused electronic trio School of Seven Bells (LAist Review) are the special guests tonight.
School of Seven Bells - "Windstorm"
Delorean - "Come Wander"
Superhumanoids - "Contemporary Individual"
Kisses - "People Can Do The Most Amazing Things"
The Delta Mirror - "He Was Worse Than The Needle He Gave You"
Sky Parade - "I Should Be Coming Up"
