It's A Party In Your Heart And Everyone's Invited

So, we're happy as hell to announce that Radio Free Silver Lake will be celebrating our one-year anniversary later this month on Tuesday, March 27th at the Let's Independent! show at Boardner's of Hollywood.

We've gathered a coalition of the thrilling to help mark the site's first birthday with a party to remember. Playing the night are three bands who are so good that you'll realize you didn't need to fly all the way to Austin to see the new face of independent music ... it was right here all along.

Local post rock giants The Lights From Here will open up the night... They perform the sort of crashing waves of instrumental guitar that fans of bands like Explosions in the Sky and Mogwai weep openly about regularly, but they also have numerous surprises all their own.

Up next are Central Second Collective act The Happy Hollows, an indie pop act who we can't say enough good things about. Like "Ever effusive...basically the band that invented fun." and "One of the bands to watch out for in 2007." and “They put on a great show of music that’s experimental and accessible at the same time."

And headlining the event are recent Dim Mak signees and likewise super-fun live act The Deadly Syndrome, who The Passion of the Weiss once wrote “With the mania of meth-heads, the band writhed, wriggled and leaped across the stage, with caveman drums and crunching spiraling guitars. When all was said and done, The Deadly Syndrome displayed that their window as an LA club band is rapidly shrinking. This band is ready for the bigs.”

Mark you calenders. Tell your friends. Wash your faces. As Peter Murphy once put it, all aboard for fun time...
