Los Angeles based duo featuring vocalist/bassist Abby Travis (Go-Go’s, Masters of Reality, Cher, Beck, Farflung,) and drummer Gene Trautmann (Queens of the Stone Age, Mark Lanegan Tour, Miracle Workers) “Sumo Princess has been described as a cross between Royal Blood, Devo, Television and Black Sabbath and Elettrodomestico has been described as a satanic electro-pop version of The Mommas and Poppas.” – Bassplayer.com
4:00pm: THE ALLEY CATS
The Alley Cats are truly one of the best bands from the formative days of Los Angeles punk rock. Formed in the mid-1970s, their early singles on the Dangerhouse label are truly among the best punk rock records ever produced. Songwriter/guitarist/vocalist Randy Stodola also fronted the Zarkons and then reformed the Alley Cats several years ago. (Randy Stodola guitar/vocals; Apryl Cady, bass, vocals; Matt Laskey on drums )
During their brief but prolific run in the mid 1980s, the all-instrumental LAWNDALE was a fixture on L.A.’s second wave punk scene. Playing a unique form of what has been described (possibly by a psychotic) as ‘Surf-infused Psychedelic Melodic Acid-Prog’, the band was fittingly dubbed “the Instrumental Gurus of the Church of the Electric Guitar” by the LA Weekly.”…if you have any fondness for early ’60s instrumentals … and care to see it done superbly plus a demented tinge of Pink Floyd influence, this is the band” – Stone Age News
