I AM A LASER FEB 11: Govinda, Tokimonsta, Ora N Gina and Shee

Posted in Events with tags , , , on February 3, 2010 by worldromper

Join us for a special edition of the monthly art and music event I AM A LASER on February 11 when the focus is on the fairer sex. That’s right, it’s ladies’ night at the Club Nokia Mezzanine Bar and we have some fine examples of female artistry on the luscious lineup for you to enjoy.

More than a monthly, I AM A LASER is also an online magazine chock full of free downloads, artist interviews and profiles, music reviews, fresh videos, fashion galleries and more. Check out the website and see the inspiration for our monthly event, then join us February 11 after the Downtown LA Art Walk for a pre-Valentines celebration of beautiful beats:

Govinda, a smooth and modern artist from Austin, Texas likes to induce states of bliss and ecstasy with mystical beats, described as “erotic” and “sensual.” Govinda’s music goes well with chocolate and satin sheets; expect more downtempo, lounge-laden beats, perfect for some easy grooving on the dance floor and a snuggle in the corner of the club.

Tokimonsta is LA’s reigning Beat Queen and a member of the Brainfeeder family, home to Flying Lotus, SamiYam, Ras G and Strangeloop. Her avant-garde beats have a hip hop soul, and with a combination of digital manipulation and live instruments she will take you on a dusty voyage through a vast musical soundscape.

Completing the lineup are Ora N Gina from Chicks with Decks and local dubstep DJ Shee.

Creating the live art for the night are Yuki Miyazaki of Cannibal Flower and Ashley Bowers, and as always Curious Josh will be on hand taking pictures for the LA Weekly. Check out some of his shots from a previous show here.

I AM A LASER combines bass heavy glitch, dubstep, electro, urban hip hop, indie, and gypsy for your pleasure along with live art painting, digital media, and who knows what else. The party goes down at the Club Nokia Mezzanine Bar @ 800 W Olympic Blvd (enter on Figueroa across from the Holiday Inn); street parking is a possibility, there are $5 lots around, and you can find more parking information here. Cover is $10 or $5 with RSVP to rsvp@iamalaser.com. Event is 21+; click here to go to the Facebook event page.

GASLAMP KILLER TOUR STARTS TODAY

Posted in Events, Music News with tags , , , , , on January 19, 2010 by worldromper

I have the extreme pleasure of experiencing The Mother Fucking Gaslamp Killer‘s sets almost every Wednesday at Low End Theory, but now I guess it’s time to share.

The Gaslamp Killer embarks today on 15-date tour across the nation with Prefuse 73 and Voices Voices. If you haven’t caught his live set yet, here is your chance to experience Gaslamp’s highly entertaining presence and an immaculate and incendiary track selection that throws together elements of hip hop, dubstep, downtempo, UK funky and a fat slap of LA crazy.

He performed recently at I AM A LASER and this comment was left on my blog at 4AM after the show by a reader named Fatnut:

“The only way to describe the level of filthy fun that this show contained is with the same facial expression and sound that one makes when reaching a long awaited orgasm while on a highly euphoric drug. Gaslamp is no doubt a crowd emperor!!!
