I AM A LASER: Downtown LA’s New Monthly for Fresh Beats, Live Art & Urban Freaks
***SOULEYE JUST ADDED TO LINEUP***
Online magazine I AM A LASER along with Los Angeles events team The Service Company (Destroy LA, We The People Festival) has created a new night of cutting-edge cultural expression. Hitting Los Angeles on the second Thursday of every month, I AM A LASER aims to connect seekers from different scenes with a love of visual arts, beat purity, festival ethos and urban gypsies.
Coinciding with the Downtown Los Angeles Art Walk and picking up where the evening hours end, I AM A LASER is a showcase of fresh electronic beats, live artwork and an eclectic mix of wanderers from the LA area, yourself included. A perfect nightcap to the city’s Art Walk, I AM A LASER brings people together under an umbrella of gritty beats in a Blade-Runneresque environment, a slick and swanky setting for the fine future sound whose many miscreant children run amok in our fair city, beats flung out to the far reaches of mindspace and beyond.
Held at the upstairs Mezzanine Bar of Club Nokia, the first installment of I AM A LASER takes place Thursday, November 12 and features the beat mastery music of Take (AKA Sweatson Klank), R/D and LC. At the forefront of this new and innovative era in experimental beat music, Los Angeles’ own Take fuses instrumental hip hop and outer space to create intricate melodies that are wrapped in bass and infused with a laid-back, psychedelic flavor.
R/D is a favorite of the festival crowd who brings a unique perspective to West Coast lean: danceable downtempo tracks that are bright and funky yet still laid back- just like LA.
Finally LC comes from the Cannibal Flower & Think Space Gallery and will bring some of the city’s finest painters to create live artwork, further uniting this new night of music with the city’s larger arts culture.
Entrance to I AM A LASER is free before 10PM, $10 after and is 21+. Club Nokia is located in downtown Los Angeles at 800 W. Olympic Street; enter on Figueroa Street across from the Holiday Inn, and click here for parking information.
