FRIDAY: Top Tape at Hyperion Tavern (Silver Lake)

Come get reel to REAL with Dublab’s analog-obsessed Top Tape gang. Aural Standards will be there alongside music-minded beings like Matthewdavid, Frosty, Walter Gross, Jonwayne, Low Limit, Sun Araw and, if we’re lucky, AS fave DJ Crazy Scotty Str8 From Rehab (these are examples, not promises). All sexy cassingles are invited to mingle to this mix of ambient haze, screwed rap, fukt folk, and experimental freakiness (1941 Hyperion Ave, 90027). On FB.

We DJ tapes. FREE FUN for you.

Excitement abounds! My first official Spin feature, small though it may be, is available to read online right now. See it with your own wide eyes. The “Breaking Out” piece on L.A.’s own Local Natives — fine people and finer musicians — will appear in print in the September issue of the magazine.
