The Orwells @ Fonda Theatre! Fenech Soler Monday Night Residency @ The Echo!
To get your week started right, head over to the Fonda Theatre tonight for a sure-to-be-crazy night of music from The Orwells! Longtime snot-nosed punk ruffians and perennial OV favorites, The Orwells descend on the Fonda tonight in support of their newest album Disgraceland. Chock full of garage crushing punk and plenty of open road screamers, Disgraceland is the perfect album to get those Monday night blues out with, so we better see you rockin' out tonight at the Fonda!
Also on tap: Fenech Soler @ The Echo!
Sometimes when the world gets this hot, music is the only thing that gets those legs moving. And so for their September residency, our buds at The Echo have booked the eminently danceable Fenech Soler to motivate those calves and thighs! Purveyors of groove-centric electro-rock, Fenech Soler have recently embraced their pop leanings with heartfelt punch, opening up their hearts and dance moves to the world with 2012's Rituals, which catapulted Fenech Soler to widespread attention across Europe. Now looking to conquer U.S soils, Fenech Soler take over The Echo tonight at 9PM and are ready to get those sloppy September feet jumping again. To get ready for tonight's show, check out Fenech Soler's single "Magnetic" below and then meet us at The Echo at 9!
