Hypnotic Brass Ensemble in Los Angeles!

January 25, 2012 at 8:00 am
Make no mistake, this one is not to be missed!  Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, Venice Dawn, DJ Spinna, and Theo Parrish.  A fresh and unexpected bill that will no doubt be another one for the books.  ArtDontSleep is behind this, who organized the Roy Ayers & Thundercat show back in November, so you can be sure that this is a well thought out, carefully curated event.  Limited early bird tickets are on sale now for $25.  I can't say I can recall the last time HBB was on the west coast, if at all.  Their name is well earned, with heavy horn harmonies, and cleverly arranged songs.  Their last EP, "Heritage," features amazing covers of some of your favorite classics, from Fela to Art of Noise (yes, Art of Noise).  Add DJ Spinna & Theo Parrish to the bill, plus local favorites Sean O, Expo, Rani D, and Anthony Valadez, and you've got a great night planned out at one of Downtown LA's freshest venues, Exchange LA.  Enough gushing, let's get to the sounds...

Homage: Roy Ayers, Pete Rock, Thundercat, Los Angeles
