Saturday: LA Lottery League

Oh, so this is happening…

LA Lottery League – THE BIG SHOW (RSVP on Facebook) Saturday, February 26 at Project Infest, 3201 Maple Ave. 90011. $5.

Modeling themselves after the original Lottery League in Cleveland, a “Council of Chiefs” has randomly created 12 new bands from a pool of Los Angeles musicians. I’m involved, as are Tyler and Duncan from Pizza!.

On January 29, we were split into our new bands. Mine is called Magii, and it features Bizzart and members of Masks and M31. For a month, we’ve been writing and rehearsing our set. It’s been rewarding to work with these people, none of whom I knew very well before this adventure. I’m stoked about the results. I’m also excited about all of the other bands – the show is sure to be eclectic and entertaining.

Here’s the logo for Magii. It was created by bandmember Matteo Himes:

Nicole Kidman at Pehrspace featuring “members of Pizza!”

Tyler and I guested on a song during Nicole Kidman’s set at Pehrspace on Monday night. We enjoyed ourselves, and I think that the end product was quite good. Our friend William posted a video of it to Youtube:

In LA Record – Review of Kyle Mabson’s Birthday Party

LA Record recently published my review of Kyle Mabson’s Birthday Party at Pehrspace. Click here to read it. It features my perspective on Signals, Breezee One, XboxRox, and Abe Vigoda. I think that it came out really well, although there are two typos that I made and didn’t catch before I sent it to the editor. I won’t tell you where they are.
