The Silhouette Era + Spacehawk + TenFiveSixty (LA) ~ $8 ~7:30 pm - 2:00 am
This coming SUNDAY! We'll be showcasing a bunch of new songs from our upcoming album. Including our newest single "Exhale." To keep with the theme of our flyer, we'll all be dressing like replicants from Blade Runner. We haven't decided who's gonna be the naked one yet, though. wink emoticon #makeoutroom #sflive #sfmusic#exhale #bladerunner #sfrock #indie
Spacehawk - formerly Fantasy, Little Fuzzy, The Thingers, Gbra
Little Fuzzy has recorded everything from shiny pop gems to rock anthems; all slightly askew and faintly echoing everything from Prince to T-Rex, from The Beatles to MC5, from the Beach Boys to DEVO, from Beck to the Kinks. Rising from the ashes of seminal San Francisco pop band Fantasy, Little Fuzzy formed in Fall 2001 and has been playing and recording steadily since then, leading to the April 2004 release of it's self-titled debut. They've shared bills with Mark Eitzel, Dengue Fever, Giant Value, and opened up for the Monkees at the Fillmore. Known for their costumes and glam sensibilities, the band's SLADE-like approach to modern pop fills the dance floor. Mark Eitzel of American Music Club put it best, "If pop music still existed, Little Fuzzy would be #1. A great pop band with great songwriting."
The Silhouette Era practically define Northern California’s own brand of surf pop; not that of hot summer nights, but of freezing dawns and the sobering ennui that can only be found when you look, bleary-eyed out into an infinity of grey sky and ocean.
Jen and Rick realised they both harboured the same thoughts and feelings on bands and songwriting. They shared a love of lost romanticism, soundtracks, 60s girl groups, 80s hooks, good footwear, attention to detail, and the darker side of classic British guitar pop.
The debut followed their much-hyped track ‘Killer’s Son’ which was released as a free download and received an intrigued reception from Shout 4 Music, FAME Magazine and With Guitars, to name but a few. BBC Introducing Manchester have since been supporting them.
The sound rests somewhere between Mazzy Star and The Pretenders, with bold soundscapes and thoughtful lyrics conjuring up a twilight world of love and loss. As the band say: “We wanted to create the sound of something exciting, but that still has a real beauty and sadness within the details. We do want you to dance, but while your heart is breaking.”
The intensity of their live shows are captured on the recordings, and the urgency that runs through all the tracks acts as a constant reminder that this is a band who should be very important. Watch them bring electric 3-piece pop in to the mainstream - where it belongs.
The TenFiveSixty released their first official single ‘Do This For Me’ through Giant Haystacks/Fierce Panda label. A limited run of 7” vinyl is available, featuring a remix of the single by San Diego’s indie rock/noise pop band, Crocodiles.
