Attention record labels who want people to love you forever and think fondly of your bands: do what Dangerbird did today and invite the good people who adore music to come to your roof and drink beer and eat tacos and meet cool people, and listen to some of your great new talent.

Do it a little after noon so we're awake.

And make sure it's a perfectly sunny day.

Oh, and make sure Sea Wolf is there playing tracks off their unbelievable new EP Get to the River Before it Runs Low as well as songs from their upcoming full length cd that promises to be even darker. Also invite the dude from the Silversun Pickups to bring the most adorable puppy ever (pictured, above).

Way more pics of the rooftop summer jam, the tacos, the rockstars, and that puppy after the jump.

Sea Wolf is one of our favorite new bands. Lately we've been totally obsessed over their EP so when we got the invite to come to their label's rooftop party we were all hells yeah. Their music is dark yet catchy. We can see why KCRW is playing them and Indie but we're sorta surprised because how often do good bands get overlooked?

Because we're also crazy about the Dinosaur Jr. new one Beyond, we made a little mix cd of Sea Wolf and Beyond. What you got going is the two fast ones off Beyond "Almost Ready" and "Been Here All The Time" and then you put in Sea Wolf's "You're a Wolf, Boy" followed by "Your Garden Remains" and you've already got a pretty sweet shower mix going already. Just sayin.

Anyways they had free beers, water, tacos, corn, a great opening band - the Eulogies, and even pink lemonade on the roof today.

How was the show? Great. For some reason I expected just Alex Church to play his songs acoustic, but he brought the whole band which really made things nice since its a super rich and full record, so it's really nice to hear a big group play it. You forget how important the keyboards can be sometimes.

If you're in Echo Park Thursday night, they play the Echo which rhymes with hey, go.

Dangerbird is the home of the Silversun Pickups which is why bro was there with his new puppy, which you can see below with Julianna from Ink Tank...
