Ho99o9 + INJURY RESERVE + THE BOTS + KATE MO$$ @ THE ECHOPLEX

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. Jumping between Halloween-inspired trap and skate-ready hardcore, they whipped the crowd into a violent blur that recalled their legendary house parties.

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!

CEREMONY + THE WORLD + THE COLTRANES + LEISURE WORLD @ THE ECHO

Few hardcore bands last over a decade, much less pack those years with enough musical variation and artistic merit to warrant a retrospective.

OMAR SOULEYMAN @ THE ECHOPLEX

The quality of this music is so fine and revelatory that it brings together countless different audiences that are here as removed from Syrian culture as you are from the person writing these words.
