Tonight Los Angeles by way of Boston indie rockers Ian Sweet rolls through the Mohawk with fellow Angeleno art rock quartet Young Jesus, and recently reconstituted local duo and blog favorites Ugly Sun. Ian Sweet, aka Jilian Medford, is touring in support of her freshly released sophomore effort Crush Crusher, a powerful, fiercely emotional, and deeply rewarding DIY one woman band effort that alternately shimmers with beautiful restraint and shreds with glorious intent.
Meanwhile, hyper literary yet primal post-punk riff rockers Young Jesus, noted for their improvisational live explorations, also just released some fresh new music of their own, the daring and searching The Whole Thing Is Just There. Then there’s skull crushing garage rockers Ugly Sun, still keeping things properly and properly unsavory but now as a duo, also have some new songs they want to play for you, so be sure to get there early. Doors are at 7pm and cover is $15.
