This past Monday night, Anavan hosted part 2 of their month-long curation of my Pehr Space concert series.
They call it “APE RULES!”
Well, the APE part really came out this week—figuratively AND literally!!!!
This was the best party EVER and I had so much fun.
Dozens competed for the AMERICA’S NEXT TOP KAZOOIST crown. Mabson won, but it was a close call, for sure.
I never knew LA. had so many talented kazoo players!
I had been trying to book TV Sheriff & the Trail Buddies for years. Anavan finally lassoed them and they were AMAZING. The Sheriff had a ton of new video mash-ups and everyone was grooving to his crazy music.
Atole from Portland was a trio this night, and they seared my mind with their psychedelic look and ominous soul sound.
The Lunar Project had live video manipulation and incredible, soaring spacenoise.
Bon Voyage got things started with their novel electronic singalongs. These two gals are ex-Faux For Real, and you really gotta check them out.
Special thanks to DJ Kyle, Aaron Anavan, Bret Anavan and Anavan Molly.
Also, big BIG props to DJ Kyle, Darren & Adam & Andrew & Pehr Space, everyone who came to the show and made it so fun, and of course Richmond for the wrist bands.
DON’T MISS THIS MONDAY, APRIL 16TH!!! Anavan is back with APE RULES, PART III—they are playing their entire self-titled GSL album for your listening pleasure.
