Event details

L.A. trio The Entrance Band recently signed to Thurston Moore's Ecstatic Peace label with their bluesy, psychedelic brand of hard rock. Bassist Paz Lenchantin previously logged time playing in Zwan with Billy Corgan. The Jim Button Band hit the local scene a couple years back with its enterprising brand of guitar pop. When member Casey Burge headed south to Georgia, Button wrote some new tunes and reemerged as Continents. The recording project translates to the stage with help from guitarist Nathan Smith, bassist Brandon Knocke, and drummer Josh Riepe. Button's occupations with pre-war blues (i.e. Robert Johnson and Son House) and Afro-pop are filtered through a more modern lens, resulting in experimentally tinged songs that you can still hum along to. Check out our podcast interview with Mr. Button.
