Low Limit plays the Beats per Moment Showcase on Saturday, September 25 @ Motor

Smashing a jam-packed treasure chest of tempos, styles and moods into his music, Low Limit’s beats are swamped up with crunk, full of fresh sonic retorts and infused with an audacious enthusiasm. Irradiating audiences with crispy bass beats and a keen ear for overlooked dance floor gems, Low Limit aka Bryant Rutledge takes his background in bottom-heavy hip hop to an adventurous new dimension of sound.

Lucent L’amour Valentine Music & Art Festival

Posted in Events, Festivals, Music News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 11, 2010 by worldromper

Going down Saturday, February 13 is the Valentine-themed music and art festival known as Lucent L’amour, a mad frenzy of creative expression, theatrical performances and of course, that rich and chewy bass music that we love so well.

Here is the quick rundown:

  • 100+ artists, musicians, performers and art installations
  • Two stages of music and dancing with live and electronic acts
  • Live mural and digital painting, art gallery and silent auction
  • Romantic, colorful and whimsical décor all throughout venue
  • Aerialists, acrobats, burlesque dancers and other live performers
  • Unique arts and crafts vendors, full bars & delicious food
  • Downtown LA location in historic Shrine Auditorium, plenty of parking
  • 7PM-4AM, 18+ event, VIP passes available presale

MUSIC: The festival is presented by The Do LaB, one of the premier Burner tribes in Los Angeles, known for throwing fat parties with eclectic lineups and colossal bass. This year’s Lucent L’amour festival has two stages and a keen selection of beautiful beats on the lineup. Both big names and critically acclaimed artists will provide a rousing night of fresh beats for the crowd: Bassnectar, N.A.S.A, Stanton Warriors, Yard Dogs Road Show, Lucent Dossier Experience, Beats Antique, Lazer Sword, Lynx & Janover and Patricio.

ART: Visual arts go hand in hand with music at Lucent L’amour, and you will find a stimulating feast for your eyes all throughout the festival. In addition to a huge art gallery curated by Mike Russek and Deborah Vogt featuring the work of dozens and dozens of artists, we will have a live mural painting by The Mac and Retna as well as a silent art auction, with proceeds going towards the purchase of music and art supplies for under-funded schools. Capping it off is the avant-garde electroart of Andrew Jones, whose inspired creations resonate with the West Coast electronic music community like beats rolling out of a bass bin.

SELF-EXPRESSION: Lucent L’amour promises to create a collision of music, art and creative self-expression. The festival is not a series of performances or a show, but rather an interactive art event where everyone becomes part of the experience, immersed together in one fantastic night of revelry. Come as you are, or deck yourself out in colorful and romantic attire: petticoats, corsets, zoot suits, ruffled parasols, purple polka dot knickers, feathered top hats, green corduroys, striped stockings, and sequined boots- or all of the above.

ROMANCE & MORE: In addition to the music and visual art offerings, Lucent L’amour will dish out a sexy serving of playful décor from the fun to the freaky, captivating theatrical performances, unusual craft vendors, hot munchies and full bar service for those 21+ (event is 18+). VIP passes and tickets are available here, and check the Lucent L’amour website for more videos, photos, music from our featured artists and weekly ticket giveaways.
