THE WILD REEDS + BLANK RANGE + ALLIE CROW BUCKLEY @ THE TERAGRAM BALLROOM

From opening number “Fix You Up," the instrument-swapping trio of Kinsey Lee, Sharon Silva, and Mackenzie Howe (backed up live by a bassist and drummer) crafted a gorgeous, lock-tight set that pleased a wide swath of showgoers – a look around the crowd showed younger indie-rock types alongside graying Americana fans.

Entering the fog-shrouded stage clad in black robes, rappers Eaddy and theOGM (who was celebrating his birthday) kicked into mission statement “Street Power” with the help of a faster-than-light drummer.

VIDEO PREMIERE: CUTTY FLAM “RUNAWAY”

L.A's Cutty Flam have a new album out on Burger next week, and here's the adorable and ambitious video to celebrate: "Runaway" doesn't have too much to do with Del Shannon, although it does have some heartrending falsetto, but in five minutes it'll tell you plenty about worlds within worlds—or selves within selves?—and how the way in is the way out, and it's got some surprise pyrotechnics, too! Anybody who ever saw a little bit of themselves in Pee Wee's Playhouse or Crybaby—or sang along with Mickey and Sylvia or played five seconds of Super Mario Bros.!—will recognize this particular neighborhood right awat. Shapes of Sound is out May 26 on Burger, and they'll have a record release party the same day at the Hi-Hat in Highland Park!
