The event also featured “reunion” performances from Perry Farrell with both Jane’s Addiction and Porno For Pyros. Gabriel Gornell proudly served as an Executive Producer.

Filmed in stunning HD quality in a remarkable 12 camera shoot, Live from the Ryman captures one of the world’s most exciting band’s in a completely unique setting.

Easy

LA Rockers EASY are hard pretty damn hard to ignore.  We got turned on to these guys from Ian who generally has a good sense about these things!  Stay tuned.  More to come on this front…

From their site…

​At the end of 2016 the world seemed to be headed for a total meltdown. The Los Angeles hills were on fire, there we’re mass shootings in nightclubs, Zika virus, water crisis and worst of all somehow a television clown had been elected president. In the midst of these crisis’ a couple of jam sessions took place between Josh Landau from The Shrine and professional skateboarder Don “Nuge” Nguyen. They instinctively delved into heavy, psychedelic riffs that would last 30 minutes. On a weekend bender in New York City, Josh played an acoustic demo of a short, fast, 2 minute power pop sort of song titled “She Says Goodnight When She Wants To”. Deciding that this style would be something unexpected and totally fresh for both of them, when they returned home to Los Angeles they enlisted their regular wrecking crew of Jordan Jones on second guitar, Ben Brown on synth and Wilder Zoby on drums. Their debut show was a private festival in early 2017 hosted by photographer Atiba Jefferson titled “Last Night,” where they played alongside Future Islands, Animal Collective, Explosions in The Sky.

Sundara Karma

We first met Sundara Karma in 2017 at the Live4ever Media Lounge at SXSW and they quickly hit heavy rotation in our office.  Oscar (Lulu) Pollack fronts the band as if his parents were David Bowie and Patti Smith.  Musically, he’s an old soul from rock royalty.  The band is extremely tight (they’ve been playing together longer than their years would suggest) and they sound as good live as they do on their records.

They played some incredible sets that year, and we were really happy to see them again at the Troubadour in LA. Here’s a tipsy pic from SXSW that first year. Oscar may be holding me up.

And here is the Live4ever interview from 2017… and below are some videos.

 

Sundara Karma are a band to know to say the very least.
