Meklit

Skirball Cultural Center

2701 N. Sepulveda Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90049

8:00pm

Travel on a diasporic odyssey with singer, musician, and cultural instigator Meklit. Immersed in her sonic homelands of Ethiopian traditional songs, jazz, and the songwriter tradition, Meklit performs music of going and returning that grooves and soars. Hear her celebrate the newness of life and the ties that bind us together, and be inspired to bridge the frontiers between language, tribes, and disciplines.

NPR hails: “[Meklit] Hadero’s sound is a unique blend of jazz, Ethiopia, the San Francisco art scene and visceral poetry; it paints pictures in your head as you listen.”

Deap Vally

Amoeba Hollywood

6400 Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, 90028

6:00pm

Lindsay and Julie return to the Amoeba Hollywood stage to celebrate their newly release album, Femejism (Nevado Music). It's out now and they will sign copies of the album after their set (purchase your copy at Amoeba and bring your receipt with you to the signing).

The album follows the LA-based duo’s critically acclaimed debut, 2013’s ‘Sistronix.’ Femejism hears the band taking their guitar shredding, wild beats and scorched vocals to another level, elevating the sound Rolling Stone describes as “trashy blues-rock with a wink” and SPIN praises as “wickedly acerbic.” BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac praises their new track “Smile More” a “brilliant raging anthem.”

The duo of Lindsey Troy (vocals, guitar) and Julie Edwards (drums, vocals) granted themselves the gift of time and freedom to reclaim their art, recording Femejism over the course of two years. And it’s not without surprises. “Critic” is an intimate, stripped down guitar and vocals track, while Troy breathes fire on “Little Baby Beauty Queen” before album closer “Heart Is An Animal” burns it all down. “Smile More” follow the 2015 release of “Royal Jelly,” whose video features Georgia May Jagger and Zinner.

This fall, Deap Vally will support Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and Death From Above 1979 on tour across the US, including Terminal 5 in NYC. The duo’s raw energy translates to “riotous and infectious” (Nylon) live sets on tour with everyone from Marilyn Manson to Iggy Pop to Peaches, and to festivals including Coachella, Glastonbury and Bonnaroo.
