8/23/2013 Exploding Flowers w/ Nick Garrie, and Strangers Family Band

On Friday August 23, 2013 we will be playing with late 60's pop troubadour Nick Garrie. Nick Garrie's orchestral pop masterpiece "The Nightmare of J.B. Stanislas," originally released in 1969 and later reissued on Rev-Ola, Get Back, and Elefant Records during the mid-late 2000's, is one of those brilliant records that should have been as big as the Zombies "Odessey and Oracle" or the Left Banke's "Walk Away Renee," but due to bad luck with a label owner suicide, it criminally slipped through the cracks. He even toured with Leonard Cohen and had minor success in Spain. In recent years, Nick has made a comeback with the help of like-minded popsters Teenage Fanclub, BMX Bandits, and Camera Obscura. This will be Nick Garrie's first ever U.S. performance. We are thrilled to be playing with him. Also on the bill are the Strangers Family Band plus DJ Jimi Hey (Beachwood Sparks, All Night Radio, Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti, etc..)The venue, HM157, is a victorian house in Lincoln Heights that is a California Historical landmark. It is a beautiful venue. Don't miss it. See you all there! For more info on the show click HERE
