Friday, January 18 Ultra Music's BLACK BOOTS are performing a live & DJ set at Avalon from 11pm-midnight. The flyer for the show is attached here. This will mark the Las Vegas-based duo's first LA performance. BLACK BOOTS--LIGHTKNIFE (production) and MIKEY FRANCIS (vocals, production)--made their worldwide debut in November 2012 with the release of their first single "Rebels In The Night." The track tells the story of a futuristic journey encompassing a world full of oppression and despair with BLACK BOOTS as the only saviors. It features a cutting-edge combination of impeccable production accompanied by electrifying vocals and lyrics.http://youtu.be/BCJe5bIcKJE. Be on the lookout for the group's newest single "Flash Of Light," to be unleashed in the coming weeks.
Saturday, January 19 the all-star supergroup SOMETHING UNTO NOTHING (S.U.N.) will celebrate the release of their debut self-titled album (Robo Records) with a show at the Key Club. S.U.N. features multi-platinum selling Canadian vocalist and Juno Award winner SASS JORDAN, BRIAN TICHY on guitar (Whitesnake, Billy Idol, Foreigner, Ozzy), MICHAEL DEVIN on bass (Whitesnake, Jason Bonham's Led Zeppelin Experience, Kenny Wayne Shepherd) and drummer TOMMY STEWART (Godsmack, Lo Pro, Everclear, Fuel). JORDAN has an innate talent capable of conveying powerful emotion through heart-stomping, primal, rock-and-roll singing. S.U.N's debut album is explosive, crushing, real and soulful with its natural fusion of blues and rock. JORDAN's vocal intensity proves a perfect match for the high-energy guitar playing of TICHY and their bandmates which provide the unique music palette that is S.U.N. Check out their debut single "I'm The One" which is approaching Top 40 at Classic Rock radio: http://youtu.be/7NktMr8Sjqk.
Friday, February 1 Nashville singer, songwriter, musician, producer BRIAN FUENTE will stop off at Venice's Witzend for a show. Following his appearance on the second season of NBC's "The Voice," BRIAN recently self-released his debut solo EP 1983. The collection pays homage to that decade of undeniably addictive pop with a modern twist. Propelled by BRIAN's rich, at times gritty, vocals sung with an abundance of passion and conviction, 1983 is sure to please his ever-growing group of loyal fans--over 4,000 Facebook fans and over 5,000 Twitter followers--while drawing in new fans and further establishing BRIAN's place in music. BRIAN laid down guitar, bass, keys, percussion and vocals for the EP and produced all but one song.
