!!! aka Chk Chk Chk (or any other triple repeated expletive) played at the Avalon a couple weeks ago to a large crowd of friends, supporters, party-people, and folks who just effing wanted to dance. The band is 8 months into touring to support their incredible album Myth Takes and are about to embark for another pass through Europe.

!!! loves LA - they have a lot of friends here, they make a pilgrimage to the Hollywood Amoeba and to various bars and eateries in Echo Park and Silverlake. We had the chance to talk to !!!'s sax- synth- and percussionist Allan Wilson in the !!! tour bus outside the Paradise in Boston before they played to (yet another) capacity crowd. Allan is the Portland, OR -based member of the band which also has members in Sacramento and Brooklyn.

Hear about what it's like to put out this kind of high energy music day in and day out for the better par of a year. Hear about what's different between the music scene in Europe vs the US, and hear Allan's thoughts on what might happen to the music industry after seeing what's happening on both sides of the pond.
