at 7th Street Entry
Monday, 09/07/2015, 7:30pm ($10)
You may recall that we caught Shana Cleveland when she was on her solo tour at Bryant Lake Bowl Theater in June 2015.
Cleveland and her all girls band La Luz will be back in town at the 7th Street Entry on Monday, September 7th... touring in support of their latest Weirdo Shrine (Hardly Art).
The new second album came out August 7th, and its goal was to capture the band's restless live energy and commit it to tape, with the help of producer/engineer Ty Segall.
Opening up for them will be Strange Relations.

The Dream Boys are back! After a seven year hiatus, Jesse “Boots Electric” Hughes and Josh “Baby Duck” Homme are cranking the volume to 11, slipping into their tightest denim and ready to rock the masses with a brand new Eagles of Death Metal release, Zipper Down. The album, to be released October 2nd on Downtown Recordings, should be another crazy-fun offering of cheeky boogie-woogie-inspired rock from the guys but I spy a few surprises: a Duran Duran cover, “Save a Prayer,” and a Hughes tune, “Oh Girl,” originally on his excellent solo album 2011’s Honkey Kong. Homme doesn’t often tour with the Eagles on account of commitments to his other band (maybe you know them? Queens of the Stone Age?), but Hughes more than makes up for his absence. There’s a reason Hughes’ nickname is “Boots Electric” as this guy is such a wild and energetic performer - his idol is Little Richard and it shows!
Show up to the gig early to catch another high desert delight: Jesika von Rabbit! Von Rabbit is, as Coachella Weekly described, “part pop princess parody, part desert gypsy” and armed with the voice of a gothed-up Wanda Jackson. After playing for over a decade with electro-pop Gram Rabbit, an LA-based band she formed with guitarist/sampler Todd Rutherford, drummer Jason Gilbert and guitarist/producer Ethan Allen (the name is a play on von Rabbit’s name and that of 60s cosmic-country legend Gram Parsons), she’s treating fans to her first solo album, Journey Mitchell, released on Royal Order records.
Put on your boogie shoes and hit the Varsity on September 9th for a real good time, folks.
