MATES OF STATE
A live version of “Maracas”, with Mates of State’s trademark pretty pretty vocals and catchy keyboard riffs!
“Ten-Twenty-Ten” from the Generationals. As one astute commenter notes, this song would not have been out of place on a John Hughes movie soundtrack.
MATES OF STATE WITH THE GENERATIONALS ON TUE., NOV. 8, AT THE EL REY, 5515 WILSHIRE BLVD., LOS ANGELES 90036. 8:00 PM. BUY TICKETS HERE.
