VIDEO PREMIERE: LUNCH LADY “SWEET ONE” + “DOLORES” (LIVE)
Indefatigable L.A. videographers Tony and Gabe are back with two clips of L.A. band Lunch Lady, whose unflinchingly grotesque video premiered with us just weeks ago. Here Lunch Lady—a quartet including Rachel Birke, Victor Herrera, Juan Velasquez and Robert Wolfe, members of much-loved locals like Abe Vigoda, Heller Keller, Roses, and Stephanie—cut through two precise and potent post-punk songs with everything stripped away but rhythm, volume and smoldering atmosphere. It’s in the same no-BS lineage as ESG, Bratmobile or Pylon—”Dolores” has a snippet right in the middle that’s a perfect nod to “Feast on My Heart”—and it might be a glimpse at Lunch Lady’s future, since none of these songs were on last year’s demo. Lunch Lady has a (sold out!) show at the Hi-Hat with Surf Curse on Saturday, starting a tour that will bring them back to Anaheim later in the month. Full dates below!
