LA State Historic Park – Los Angeles
May 20th, 2017 //

It’s been a while since LA State Historic Park has hosted a music festival — almost three years to be exact. The 34-acre open space just north of LA’s Chinatown neighborhood, after all, had been under construction during that time, with progress on the developement getting delayed at one point due to soil contamination at the site.

But in March, Radio Hill Events, a new group of concert producers, talent buyers and festival planners, teamed up with KCRW to announce Skyline, a single-day music, art and food event that will mark the first major music gathering at the recently remodeled park.

Featuring performances by Duke Dumont, Miike Snow, Lido, EDEN, Michl, ELOHIM and Jason Bentley, the fest’s inaugural music lineup leans heavily on electronic acts who play “live” (as opposed to performing a DJ set).

Kicking off the festivities this Saturday at 2 p.m. will be a surprise opener before Miike Snow and Duke Dumont close things out with back-to-back sets each lasting an hour (view the set times below).

If you’re looking for something to do this weekend and are itching to see some live music, you don’t want to miss this brand-new festival in downtown LA. Tickets are available for $50, but you could win a pair of tickets by submitting your full name and email below.

Contest ends this Friday at 3 p.m.

SF Show of the Week // GO4FREE to Floating Points at Mezzanine 4/29 (FRI)

Floating PointsWritten by Nik Crossman //

Floating Points with Idris Ackamoor & The Pyramids //
Mezzanine – San Francisco
April 29th, 2016 //

Hailing from the UK, Floating Points (born Sam Shepard) has made a name for himself over the last 10-plus years through his unconventional approach to creating dance music, which remains strongly influenced by his childhood.

The co-founder of Eglo Records grew up singing in the Manchester Cathedral Boys Choir, and his work reflects a strong appreciation for live instrumentation. Consequently, Shepard often resembles a composer more than a traditional electronic producer.

With the release of his debut LP Elaenia late last year, Shepard has solidified his position as a composer by arranging a variety of string and keyboard instruments. Clocking in at more than 42 minutes, the seven-track album takes listeners on a transcendent journey through musical peaks and valleys while appropriately timing the descent.

This Friday, Idris Ackamoor & The Pyramids will provide support before Floating Points takes his SF audience at Mezzanine for an aurally empowering ride. Tickets are available for $20, or you could win a pair of tickets by submitting your full name and email below.

Contest ends this Friday at 3 p.m.

Dead Winter Carpenters pulled their well-traveled minibus into San Francisco and damn near sold out the Independent on a Friday night (January 10), a big feat for the Tahoe-based group. Along with American Nomad and Sleeping Giants, Dead Winter Carpenters threw down one heck of a folkified, Americana-leaning shindig full of wonderfully dynamic originals and some seriously left-field covers that all lent to a massively successful evening.

The Independent – San Francisco

The relentless touring force that is the Dead Winter Carpenters are pulling their bus into San Francisco this weekend to celebrate the release of their latest EP entitled Dirt Nap. 2013 was a huge year for the Tahoe natives as they criss-crossed the country, recorded new material and won new fans night by night. The Independent hosts DWC along with local support from Sleeping Giants and American Nomad on Friday, January 10th. Fans of rootsy americana music with a pulse are sure to pay attention to these rising stars.

Dirt Nap was released just a few weeks ago as a ‘pay what you want’ release, and features six songs of the acts patented outlaw alt-country along with an impressive guest spot by the likes of Pete Grant(Grateful Dead, Willie Nelson) on steel pedal. Some personnel changes over the past year has lent to the growth of Dead Winter Carpenters as Bryan Daines’ honky-tonk inspired guitar playing continue to marvel. Though with these changes, DWC has kept true to something entirely unique as they craft the 21st century sound of California roots music.
