Preview: FIDLAR, Cheatahs, Cherry Glazerr, Isaac Rother & the Phantoms at Echoplex 2/27
Tomorrow night will be a crazy good punk rock show featuring LA's very own FIDLAR and rising local artists Cherry Glazerr and Isaac Rother & the Phantoms. Also London-based four-piece Cheatahs has also been added to the bill. The showcase was curated by new Los Angeles curator Amoeba Music and will feature the smooth stylings of LA-based quintet Isaac Rother & The Phantoms, who harken back to an era when rock 'n roll was simple, fun and dangerous. Meanwhile, LA trio Cherry Glazerr combines lo-fi shoegaze elements with relentless driving grooves. Fiery alt-rockers Cheatahs will celebrate the recent release of their self-titled debut album, which VICE named February's Best Album of the Month. They'll join headliners FIDLAR, who have a reputation for being one of the most exciting punk bands on the planet. I've seen FIDLAR before and they know how to rock out with lots of energy, creating a really fun raucous environment. The show is just $3 with RSVP to redbullsoundselect.com and $12 without RSVPing. So if you have any interest, make sure to RSVP, especially since it's at one of the most underrated music venues in LA, Echoplex! Below, watch FIDLAR's latest video, "Cocaine", starring comedian/actor Nick Offerman pissing everywhere around LA.
