We’ve been anything but quiet about our love for Kiven here at LA Music Blog. We’ve chatted with the band twice on the LA Music Blogcast, covered a trio of their live shows, highlighted them as one of our Featured Artists, and now we’re very excited to be supporting the local alt-rockers by presenting their show at Bootleg HiFi on October 8th!

St. Lucia

There’s something to be said for musicians that can continue to blow you away no matter how many times you see them live. Having closely followed Jean-Philip Grobler — AKA St. Lucia — and his live band from their early days of opening for Ellie Goulding and Two Door Cinema Club in 2013 to their solo show this year at El Rey, I can safely say he falls into the category of being better and more brilliant with every gig.

Lorde

For being so young, 17-year-old recording artist Lorde has already achieved so much. The New Zealand native’s debut album, Pure Heroine, went platinum, she’s won two GRAMMY awards, and her hit single “Royals” holds more than one record for the number of weeks it stayed in the #1 spot on the charts (yet we somehow still don’t know all of the lyrics).

Dark Star Orchestra

The same way other kids would buy their dads slippers or ties for every Christmas or Father’s Day, I bought my dad all things Grateful Dead as a child. Little me knew Dad liked The Dead, and as an already-obsessive music lover, I thought an album by one’s favorite band was always the best gift you could give. Heck, I still think that.

Bishop Allen

On October 7th Bishop Allen will be stopping by Bootleg HiFi in support of their new record, Lights Out, a music compilation that has been five years in the making. To promote the new album, the band enlisted the help of their friends to create a series of curious videos to go along with each track. And what exactly did these friends have to do? Oh, you know, just hula hoop in slow motion!

La Roux

If Makiko’s photos from La Roux’s performance at The Greek earlier this summer are any indication, the English synth-pop artist delivers a very sexy, sensual live performance. That show saw La Roux opening for fellow Brits New Order, but on September 23rd, she’ll be returning to LA for a headlining performance at The Fonda Theatre…and we’re giving away tickets to the show!

Since 2005 Simian Mobile Disco (James Ford and Jas Shaw) has been releasing incredible analog productions. Though I’ve seen the legendary London-based duo several times, I’m always amazed while watching them create music right in front of the audience.

Com Truise

Com Truise’s music is simultaneously futuristic and retro. It’s easy to imagine both wild-haired ’80s geeks and shiny chrome robots grooving to the producer’s distinctive synth-based sound.
