MusiCares has teamed up with The Echo to throw a benefit concert to raise money for people affected by the Middle Tennessee floods tomorrow (Thursday, June 24) at 7:00 pm. Cost is $20 benefiting Musicares Nashville Flood Relief Fund.

The lineup for the event includes Carlene Carter, along with Dave Alvin, Exene Cervenka, Syd Straw (our neighbor in Echo Park!), Tony Gilkyson, Seaspin, The Damn Sons, and DJ Travis Keller.

From The Echo website:

Nashville and its surrounding communities were unexpectedly struck by a major disaster on Saturday, May 1. Many in this music community experienced significant loss — homes, cars, equipment, and rehearsal space — ruined by the unprecedented flooding in several communities. It has been estimated that only a fraction of those who experienced significant loss have adequate flood insurance to cover their damages. MusiCares understands the effects of this disaster in a unique way. Since our inception in 1989, it has been our mission to assist music industry people facing unexpected crises. MusiCares is poised and ready to help the Nashville music community get through this crisis.

MusiCares has established the MusiCares Nashville Flood Relief Fund to assist music people affected by the Middle Tennessee Floods. MusiCares’ initial assistance will provide funds for food and clothing, gasoline and transportation, cleanup efforts, relocation costs, medicine, and other critical supplies.

HEALTH presumably have a saying: if you do something right once, remix, remix again. They did it two years ago with HEALTH/DISCO, which included remixes of HEALTH tracks by Pictureplane, CFCF, Nosajthing, and of course Crystal Castles, whose version of “Crimewave” threatened to be more popular than HEALTH’s original for a short while. In keeping with this tradition, HEALTH have announced DISCO2, to be released June 22 on Lovepump United.

Like the previous remix album, DISCO2 collects reworkings of tracks from the studio album that preceded it (a little gem called GET COLOR [TMT Review]). Crystal Castles and a few of the same guys from HEALTH/DISCO are back for more, but there are also remixes by Javelin, Small Black, Gold Panda, Tobacco, and Salem. The album’s single and opening track, “USA BOYS,” was mixed by producer Alan Moulder (My Bloody Valentine, Nine Inch Nails, Depeche Mode). And the excitement just keeps coming: HEALTH are topping it off with a US tour, ending with Lollapalooza in Chicago.Tiny Mix Tapes

Hot Hot Heat releases it’s new album, Future Breeds, via Dangerbird Records on June 8th. Los Angeles fans can hear the new sounds early, as the band will be doing a June residency every Wednesday night at Bootleg Theater.

Hailing from British Columbia, Hot Hot Heat first came to prominence in 2002 with their breakthrough debut LP, Make Up The Breakdown, an electrifying dose of urgent, dancey rock anchored by frontman Steve Bays’ characteristic yelp and highly infectious melodies. Over the years, the Canadian band has delivered their kinetic brand of rock and roll live to thousands, toured the world with bands such as Modest Mouse, Kings Of Leon, The Walkmen and Queens of the Stone Age, and released several albums, garnering praise from everyone from Pitchfork to Rolling Stone and Spin who described their sound as “aggressively exuberant funk-punk.” Listen to Hot Hot Heat on myspace.

The shows are $12. Tickets can be bought here for an additional fee of $2.88 per ticket.

This is gonna be a killer show, PCNVB is Spencer from SKATERS and VODKA
SOAP jamming with two other dudes.  We also got the incredible NYC sound
artist/explorer Marcia Bassett, playing here as ZAIMPH.  And to top off the deal, we
have the Dutch vibrationist and keyboard ritualist STELLAR OM SOURCE here to
shake us slowly to sleep.

good luck finding the PACIFIC CITY NIGHTLIFE VISION BAND anywhere.

Tues, Mar 2nd – PEACE, LOVING + HORAFLORA + headlight + LOLA LOSHKEY

Well, we moved our art drop back a day to help out these fine folks, slyly named
PEACE, LOVING travelling from New England, bringing with them a calamitous
cacophony of metal and whirling free jazz.  SF’s HORAFLORA also shares this love
of prepared instruments and strange sonic disturbances.  Our very own headlight,
on the other hand, will seem like a gentle dream, a synth-based slalom into the
abyss.  And also recently added is the newly developed LOLA LOSHKEY, a
frightening trip into the realm of dead pets, stuffed unicorns and skeleton suits.


Wed, Mar 3rd – ART DROP for the PEOPLE WE KNOW SHOW 7p to 10p

I know, we usually do art drops on Tuesdays, but this one is gonna be Wednesday,
so that we can have the Peace,Loving guys play.  But don’t let out tardiness fool
you, we’re super psyched about the phenomenal Rebekkah Clendening coming up
with the idea for this show, and we’ll be featuring many of her portraits of local
figures from the neighborhood.  But what kind of neighbors would we be if we didn’
t open up the show to everybody… so come and bring us your portraits, photos,
sculptures and even stories about people you know, people we might get to know!!!

wild Up music collective is, in their own words, “a modern music collective, comprised of young Los Angeles area musicians, committed to creating eclectic, vibrant art.”

Tonight they will do just that at Jensen’s Recreation Center (1710 Sunset), one of Echo Park’s coolest historic landmarks. The concert, entitled I See It Coming: songs after Radiohead, will include musical masterworks from the last two and a half centuries. It begins with Bach’s “Brandenburg Concerto No. 3” and ends with songs from Radiohead’s “In Rainbows.”

I’m actually a little sad that I already have plans for tonight because this concert looks as though it’s going to be really rad.

Tonight (Friday, February 5) at 8 pm. Tickets available at the door. $15 for students and $20 general admission.
