TV Girl: February 25th (WED) @ Brick & Mortar Music Hall // BUY TICKETS
Trung Ngo and Brad Petering first called attention to themselves as TV Girl in 2010 after the release of their critically-acclaimed single “If You Want It” featuring a Todd Rundgren sample, which got them into a small copywrite debacle with Warner Music Group. Taking the high road, the twosome went on to release their material independently and absent of much Internet presence, managed to book several tour dates, including one at South by Southwest, and produce various EPs, a mixtape and a full studio album entitled French Exit.

Contest ends this Tuesday at 3 p.m.

Eleanor Friedberger: February 26th (THUR) @ Brick & Mortar Music Hall // BUY TICKETS
Frontwoman of the Fiery Furnaces and acclaimed singer-songwriter, Eleanor Friedburger brings her Personal Record to Brick & Mortar Music Hall on Thursday night. Channeling the golden age of California rock ‘n’ roll, Freidburger draws influence from her 70’s idols, dictating a narrative that is both personal and universally relate-able. Paying tribute to the sun-tinged pop aesthetics of timeless classics penned by her predecessors, she brings a modern flare to the classic rock formula, creating a sound that is romantically vibrant, unequivocally defined and truly her own.

Contest ends this Wednesday at 3 p.m.

Les Sins: February 26th (THUR) @ The New Parish // BUY TICKETS
Side project of chillwave ambassador and Toro Y Moi frontman Chaz Bundick, Les Sins was born from a series of 12” records Bundwick released on independent record labels Carpark and Jiaolong as “just another way to make weirder music without alienating TYM fans”.

Here is your chance to check out this talented renaissance man “work” it out at The New Parish.

Mystery Skulls: February 26th (THUR) @ Mezzanine // BUY TICKETS
Dallas native Luis Dubuc formed Mystery Skulls in 2011 after departing former project The Secret Handshake, packing up his belongings and officially setting up shop in Los Angeles. There, he refined his synthpop sound, released his four-song, self-titled EP and has been operating full steam ahead under his new moniker ever since. Opening for Flume and working alongside Chromeo, Avicii and Yeasayer at sold-out venues and festivals throughout Southern California, Mystery Skulls caught the attention of Warner Bros., signing a record deal with them, and in the meantime, is now working with Nile Rogers and Chic on their upcoming album while also producing his own full-length debut. Don’t miss him Thursday at Mezzanine with Blackbird Blackbird opening.

Kindness: February 28th (SAT) @ Mezzanine // BUY TICKETS
Solo project of singer Adam Bainbridge, Kindness has become synonymous with a type of musical exploration focused on found work, sound sources and collaborations, all meant to branch out from atypical pop music into various mediums and creative fields. Winner of the Eric James Johnson Memorial Fellowship award while attending the Philadephia Institute for Advanced Study, Bainbridge credits his work to the “natural and verifiable magic”, of real interactions with fellow artists and contributors to his work. Playing a unique live show this Friday at Mezzanine, he’ll be performing with a full band usually saved for his festival dates and special one-off tour stops. You’ll want to catch this rare and extremely exceptional festival highlight.
