Hands and The Goldberg Sisters Take Over the Bootleg Theater Tonight
By Katherine Peach/Special to LAist
Adam Goldberg is best known as an actor in the war epic Saving Private Ryan--or, going back a bit farther, for his role as a bumbling yet endearing nerd in Dazed and Confused. Not to be labeled yet another tedious actor taking an ill-fated foray into music, Goldberg debuted a the well-received 2009 album Eros and Ommisions under the moniker LANDy. Goldberg is a self-proclaimed man of all trades, including a purveyor of fine meats, and most recently embarked on the musical venture The Goldberg Sisters. The band appears tonight at the Bootleg Theater as part of a musical lineup that dares you to “put your money where you mouth is.”
To say the project is a family affair is loose at best, according to the website: “Whether or not his twin, Celeste, is actually a bearded twin sister who masterminds these projects or just a thorny offshoot of Dissociative Identity Disorder remains unclear.”
For tonight's Bootleg Theater show, the headlining group, Hands, is another celebrated LA-based act that has been deemed one of the next big bands to come out of Silverlake. Not bad for a group that has only released a handful of demos. The indie rock group builds upon the genre without sounding coined or tired. The group has played around the city at Silverlake Lounge, Ecoplex or for a select few that walked a day barefoot for others.
The event proceeds will go to the Japanese Red Cross to aid in disaster relief efforts. A total of five acts will perform including Corridor, Taylor Locke, The Venus Illuinado. To make the night officially star studded, Mischa Barton hosts the evening that is sure to blend great acts in the name of something greater.
Tickets will be $12 at the door, and be sure to run, not walk to the Bootleg for this is a music event that is not to be missed. For more information visit, the venue’s website.
