This event is 18 and over
Legendary 80s pioneers of the Romantic scene, GENE LOVES JEZEBEL are playing their 1st-ever Part Time Punks show -- AND putting together a special set of their ground-breaking Goth tracks from their early 80s days on the Situation 2 label!! (And will of course also be playing their still chilling dancefloor singalong hits like 'Desire,' 'Sweetest Thing' and 'Motion Of Love'!) Revisiting these early tracks you quickly hear the influence of the band on their Goth contemporaries like The Chameleons, Echo & The Bunnymen and The Sound, as well their forward-thinking protogaze guitar style later made popular by House Of Love, Pale Saints and the dreamier contingent of 90s shoegaze bands...http://www.theecho.com/event/1377874/
With the release of Coverboy, an LP 3 years in the making, recorded in a "skid row penthouse," Belle & Fatal Jamz unleash a new kind of pop opus that explodes at once with thug swagger and palatial emo glamour.
"Coverboy is a glam-rock Romeo + Juliet"
"One of the LA music scene's best underground acts might finally be about to surface"
"When Marion Belle sings, it's thrilling"
