Let’s Independent! w/ The Prix, Radars to the Sky, and Eagle & Talon

Tonight's the night of our latest Let’s Independent! event at Boardner’s in Hollywood, and we have Eagle & Talon, Radars to the Sky, and The Prix playing. It’s starts at 9:00 PM (for folks who are 21+), it’s FREE this time, and if you’ve been out before, you know it’s kinda a bit more of a party than just a regular show.

If you haven’t heard about some or one or all of the three bands, here’s what people have been saying about them -- along with some downloadable MP3s.

- "Radars To The Sky ... have a 5-song ep out, but I never get past the first song Long Walk Home cause I keep pressing repeat." -- Inflight at Night

- "Radars to the Sky aren't afraid to take chances with their music, which is true indie rock.... Go see Radars to the Sky for yourself. You'll be glad you did." --Epitunes

- "Radars displayed a strong interplay together, delivering some fierce guitar riffs and rubbery propulsive bass lines that got the hipsters up and moving." -- The Passion of the Weiss

DOWNLOAD: The Long Walk Home MP3

- "The music of Eagle and Talon is wonderfully underproduced. The hollow, tinny notes of a child's Casio keyboard swirl around choppy guitar licks and no-nonsense drumbeats. Kim's voice, sweet and strong, braves the rapids of this melodic current with powerful self-assurance." - The LA Times

- "Artlessly jagged post-punk that's got fun in it even when it's being serious." - The Village Voice

- "Taut beats and oddly-tuned guitars spar in decidedly un-ladylike fashion, with retro casios joining the fray. Kim Talon dances an entrancing tightrope between cool-eyed detachment and exploding mine field, always with sharply observed lyrics in tow. It's smart indie rock with balls... by girls." - Upcoming

DOWNLOAD: They’re So Sharp MP3

- "It's All In the Way That You Trip is the most joyfully danceable rock & roll song we've heard in ages" - Kate Sullivan, L.A. Weekly

- "Lovingly-tousled pop that could have crackled out of transistor radios during the Johnson administration" -Kevin Bronson, Los Angeles Times

- "Fired up.....lithe, literate garage rock" -Ron Garmon, City Beat LA


Again, you can find all the details right here. Hope you can make it!

hey RFSL/joe. really terrifically informative blog you have got here, not to mention the invaluable daily calendar of shows (which i just mentioned). since no one reads our blog, its probably not a big deal that we have added yours to our Links Of Precious and Valuable Other Blogs section. but like, if you think we don't totally suck, perhaps you re-ciprocate this gesture of good blogging faith and community. or just say "sure sure yeah no problem i'll totally do that" but then don't do it if you dont feel like it.
