Brooklyn-based Innergaze (100% Silk, Cititrax), Steve Summers (Clone, LIES, Echovolt), and Rhythm Based Lovers (Future Times) are touring the California coast this week.
It all starts this Saturday (7/16) at Amnesia as OK Hole presents Innergaze with Bookworms (live), Robot Hustle and OK Hole DJs. If you’re not familiar, Innergaze is a BK based synth duo composed of Jason Letkiewicz & Aurora Halal. Back in September, Jason sent me a couple of tracks to play drums on. I recorded those at Phil Manley’s home studio. I’m stoked on their high heels on the wah wah pedal vibe – you don’t want to miss them live. One of those tracks, “Shadow Disco” premiered on Altered Zones in May, check out the video:
If you live for analog synth body music and just can’t get enough, then don’t miss Jason Letkiewicz’s alter-ego Steve Summers on Tuesday (7/19) at the High Fantasy party at Aunt Charlie’s. HF hosts Alexis Blair Penney, and Myles Cooper will DJ along with a set by Magic Touch (Damon Palermo – me).
Also, if you want to leave the city for some summer heat, you’re in luck: Steve Summers is playing in Belden on Friday (7/15) at the Sunset Campout 2011 with Miracles Club & more! After which Innergaze plans to debut in LA at Freak City on Sunday (7/17) — I’ll also be debuting my solo project, Magic Touch. Also playing is Pharoahs, plus DJ sets by LA Vampires, SFV Acid, and Let Him In.
To book end their S.Cal tour, Rhythm Based Lovers plays live on Monday (7/18) at Dam Funks’ legendary weekly Funkmosphere party with SFs own, Donuts DJs, Dam Funk, and Funkmosphere DJs!
