Sargent House Labelmates Fang Island, Zechs Marquise and Adebisi Shank Rock The Troubadour

L.A. label/management group Sargent House hosted a huge bash at The Troubadour last Friday with Fang Island, Zechs Marquise and Adebisi Shank.

Headliners Fang Island were on tour in support of their recently-released second album Major and performed a long set that ended with a million guitarists onstage including Nick of Tera Melos, Marcos of Zechs Marquise and Lar of Adebisi Shank. I think I saw the ghost of Jimi Hendrix near the drum kit.

Zechs performed a shorter version of the set they’ve been playing since they released Getting Paid last year but changed a few of the songs to give them more of a “jam session” feel in the middle. Opening act Shank delivered the goods even harder than they did at their U.S. debut at last year’s SXSW and performed a new song.

Below are some photos of the event. The full set can be found on my flickr page.

Marnie Stern, Tera Melos at the Echo: Live Review

Sacramento-based Math Rock group Tera Melos launched their first tour of the year at The Echo this past Friday night with the help of opening acts Power Axe and Marnie Stern.

I stepped into the venue as Power Axe closed up their set (thanks mainly to most So Cal drivers’ terrible habit of forgetting their driving skills every time water falls from the sky) Judging from the applause and whistles that followed the end of their set, he bass-and-drum brother duo did an excellent job of warming the crowd up.
