Warpaint @ Hotel Cafe, 11/2/08

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.


Last night, local ethereal shoegazers Warpaint (MySpace) closed the evening's lineup at the Hotel Cafe (MySpace) in Hollywood. Formed in March 2007 with actress Shannyn Sossamon as drummer, the once all-female band has had two residencies this year -- February March at the Silverlake Lounge and August at Spaceland (MySpace) in Silver Lake -- as well as a spot on last month's Clean Air Clear Stars Festival (MySpace) at Pappy and Harriet's Pioneertown Palace (MySpace).

As for upcoming local shows, Warpaint performs tonight at The Echo (MySpace), supporting Weave!'s (MySpace) month-long residency, and on November 16th at The Echoplex (MySpace) as part of the Part Time Punks Festival (MySpace).

Special thanks to Warpaint and the Hotel Cafe.
