Who says Mondays have to always suck? The fine folks at IHEARTCOMIX are making the most boring day of the week possibly the best day of your month next week on the 24th. I’ve been waiting a very long time for this show to roll into town and now we’re finally getting it…Ladyhawke is going to grace LA with her retro-infused dance rock and treat us to jams from her new record “Anxiety.” For those unaware, New Zealand-bred Pip Brown broke onto the scene in 2008 with her synthy self-titled record that merged disco, new wave, indie rock, and electro into a timeless package that launched her into the Modular Records family alongside the likes of Cut Copy, Van She, The Presets and more like-minded artists. The singles from the first album went far and received remix treatments from guys like Fred Falke and Classixx, which were heavily played out. Her new record took a couple years, but the result is a much more organic sounding, a more mature series of tracks that are still equally as powerful and memorable as her classics.
Joining her at the Echoplex on Monday will be local friends American Royalty and DJ Vice Cooler. Doors are at 8 pm and tickets are $15 if you buy in advance. Tickets will also be available at the door. 18+ only, kids.
And if you’re feeling lucky, tweet about the show and tag us in it and you may win a pair of tickets! Contest ends Monday morning. Good luck!
