Teragram Ballroom has two nights with Dinosaur Jr. planned!

Braids have released a new music video for "Joni," a track from recent EP release Companion. The video was directed by Maria Ines Manchego. Regarding the video, singer Raphaelle Standell-Preston explains: "The video started with the desire to film in Los Angeles. I was spending the winter there, and was drawn to the opposing feelings that the city gave off: cluttered though spacious, freeing yet difficult, palm trees in a desert. The song itself sounded like the push and pull of all these things."
In addition to performing at El Rey Theatre on Friday, June 10, Kaleo also has scheduled a FREE in-store performance at Amoeba Music on Thursday, June 9, in support of U.S. debut album A/B. The in-store performance, which begins at 6:00 p.m., is on a first-come, first-served basis. To participate in the meet & greet after the performance, simply purchase A/B at Amoeba Music.
And so it goes. "LET'S DANCE!" he said to the crowd. It could have been Prince. It could have been Bowie. It could have been Hyde. The unmistakable kick drum left no doubt, pounding like a steam train as the rainbow chords of "Born Slippy" bounced off giant hanging cubes and the shirtless bronze bros of the Sahara Tent. Like the snake eating its own tail, we were pushing through the past to get to the future. Once again, Underworld was taking us there. "Drive boy dog boy," Karl Hyde sang as everyone went for it. "Dirty numb angel boy, in the doorway boy… And tears boy… You had chemicals boy… Acid bear boy… Derail…" Those words could have described the scene in the desert. Coachella's vibe was elemental. The dust and wind howled outside, darkening the festival lights and halting the Ferris wheel. In a night of ghosts, bodies were angling and shoving. The young emissaries of EDM bumped to rhythms that pulsed long before time thumped in their baby hearts. The smell of vomit mixed with pulverized grass. "Step the fuck back!" the boy yelled. "Get back! Get baaack!" Snapping his body and bringing up his fists, crouching down like a caged animal, his eyes popped with fury. He and his girl and their friends had cut in front. I was trying to get back to Chris Molina, for us to go get some shots from the rear. What grenade went off in this poor kid's head? I shrugged.
