This weekend Los Angeles gets a double dose of Unknown Mortal Orchestra, the Portland groomed psychedelic indie rock act formed by New Zealand native Ruban Nielson. After their arrival in 2010 and subsequent eruption as a buzz band in 2011, they dropped their Wes Anderson esque video for "Strangers are Strange" in February 2012 in anticipation of their tour.
Now they find themselves on that tour and inhabiting the Echoplex (Saturday) and The Central SAPC (Sunday) - with support from White Arrows and trash-pop act TRMRS (who play earlier that day at KXSC Fest for FREE!). We have two pairs of tickets to give away for each show - email email@example.com or comment on our facebook page to enter. Winners will be notified by 2 pm on the day of the show.
Speaking of UMO - look out for Kosha Dillz next drop off The Jetlag EP coming soon - it features him and Ducky rapping over some Unknown Mortal Orchestra on a track called "Friends." Check www.koshadillzworld.com or his Facebook for the release...
