I've Got a Bit of a Thing About the Besties

I have two extremely last minute updates to my concert calendar for this week that I'm extremely embarrassed to admit that I overlooked while compiling the thing on Monday.

One of my highlights of South by Southwest were the dual girl vocal, dual girl keyboard, and boy lead guitar hero antics of Brooklyn band The Besties. Their songs reside in some great company of North American (you know, cause Cub were Canadian) indiepop that are all pure fun, and will likely have you dancing and smiling even if you don't dance or smile. I guess you could call them cuddlecore, or crush-pop if you like your subgenres to have subgenres. You can definitely call them awesome no matter what.

Here are the details on their shows in L.A. this week!


At the Derby.

Open bar from 8-9, but you have to mention it at the door all speakeasy style and they will give you free drink tix! We go on at 11. Door is $12, but only $8 if you have the flyer. If you'd like us to email you they flyer, shoot a request to

8:45PM First Amendment

9:30PM Chicago Farmer

10:15PM Andy Lange

11:00PM The Besties!



At The Steve Allen Theater.

The Tomorrow Show @ The Steve Allen Theater. For more info go here This starts at midnight. So I guess Technically it is the 23rd. 4772 Hollywood Blvd. @ Berendo 2 blocks west of Vermont.

I hope to see you at one of these shows. I'm personally planning on the one tomorrow night, and I am very excited to pick up that 7' that I was too nervous to include in my SXSW luggage!
