ALBUM PREMIERE: THE PRETTY FLOWERS “GOLDEN BEAT SESSIONS” LP

L.A.'s the Pretty Flowers weren't quite planning to make a covers record, but something that started as a project to really give their new drummer Sean Johnson a studio workout has turned into a heartfelt valentine to the music the band (and maybe you?) all hold near and dear. Pretty Flowers' Golden Beat Sessions is out on cassette on Dirt Cult on Fri., May 3, and you can pre-order here. (The band also has CDs here.) Pretty Flowers play this Sunday, Ap. 28, at the Moroccan Lounge with Telekinesis—get tickets here!—and they'll do a set of west coast dates at the end of May.

WIN TICKETS TO THE “TRULY SOUL-STIRRING” FILM SATAN AND ADAM PREMIERING FRI. APR. 19 AT THE LAEMMLE GLENDALE!

Satan and Adam is the story of Sterling "Satan" McGee, a monumental guitar player who cut some sought-after R&B 45s in the 60s before playing with the Harlem Underground Band and then busking in the streets of Harlem in the 1980s, where he met and made a record with harmonica player Adam Gussow, who became a lifelong friend. Of course, if the story stayed that simple, there wouldn't be a movie, would there? The L.A. Times called it a "truly soul-stirring" story, and the New York Times said "there's real pain here, mixed with real beauty." Want to win tickets to the Friday, April 19th premiere? Just email rsvp@larecord.com with the subject SATAN and three pairs of winners will be selected at random by 11 AM on Fri April 19! Satan and Adam runs from Apr. 19 to Apr. 26 at the Laemmle in Glendaleget tickets here, including to special Q&A screenings with producer Ryan Suffern and director V. Scott Balcerek.
