Summer Camp w/ Matt Ellis, Hypernova, Tenlons Fort & Castledoor @ Little Radio, 7/27/08

We need to hear from you.
Today during our spring member drive, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

Last Sunday, Little Radio's Summer Camp series Downtown continued with performances by local bands Matt Ellis (MySpace), Hypernova (MySpace), Tenlons Fort (MySpace), and Castledoor (MySpace), with The Karabal Nightlife (MySpace) as well as Ladies and Gents (MySpace) among those performing earlier in the day during Open Mic.

While Hypernova, who are originally from Iran, have been living for the past year Downtown near MacArthur Park, they will be relocating to New York in two weeks. It was a revelation from frontman Raam, uttered with a twinge of regret, as he quickly added how great the city has been thus far, that nevertheless elicited several boos from the otherwise captivated audience.

As for upcoming shows, Castledoor's are this Thursday at The Scene (MySpace) in Glendale, August 9th at {open} in Long Beach, and August 23rd at the Sunset Junction Street Festival (MySpace).
