Three of my favorite live bands are dropping by SoCal in the next month and I highly recommend getting tickets. The first one of the videos below is the best known know - Stellastarr - which plays Spaceland on December 5th. The second one is playing Spaceland as well (November 14th). I have blogged about them before, Gil Mantera's Party Dream, the crazy brothers from Ohio whose over-the-top live shows and updated channeling of 1980s synth-pop à la Tears for Fears is highly, eeh, entertaining? The third one if Grand Buffet, is a hip-hop duo from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (pictured above), which have toured several times with notable artists such as Gil Mantera's Party Dream, Sage Francis, Of Montreal, Cex, Sole, Magnolia Electric Co., Streetlight Manifesto, and the late Wesley Willis. They are playing at the Groove of Anaheim on November 15th.
