I took along my camera to document the event, which was a total blast.
The first band, Wax Children, are an ambient experimental indie noise pop psychedelic band from Los Angeles. To listen to their music, go HERE.
The next band, The Gospels, are one of my favorite local bands. The guitarist, Erin, is a colleague of mine in the English department at Cal State Fullerton. They are a straight up rock and roll band, and they have a new 7" record coming out soon on Ghoulhouse Records.
Mondo introduced each band. He tends to swear a lot when he's nervous.

Between each band I got to spin records on really nice Technics turntables and a sweet PA system. I blasted some old school punk and nostalgic 80s music. What other DJ do you know who follows the Sex Pistols with the Pretty in Pink soundtrack? DJ Jesse "The Body" La Tour, that's who.
The last band, May McDonough & Company, describe themselves as "psychedelic sex-pop." They were pretty groovy.
Many of my friends were at the show. A good time was had by all!
