Ghost Pavilion, Grave School, Last Canyon, Inspired & the Sleep at the La Cita Bar 9/21

On Tuesday Brooklyn-to-LA's Ghost Pavilion is hosting a show at the La Cita in Downtown Los Angeles. The band's synth-rich, lo-fi atmospheric sound started as the side project of James Higgs, multi-instrumentalist of Brooklyn's cozy dreampop foursome Spanish Prisoners. Two previously earmarked bands will start the show off: Grave School and Last Canyon. Both have released new EPs over the summer — the "Grave School" EP hummed '80s alt-rock cool, while "gold, sight and silver" featured a loftier sound than Last Canyon's debut. Psych-pop duo Inspired & the Sleep drives up from Oceanside to support at 10:00pm, too.

Grave School is on at 8:30pm — the beer's cheap and happy hour's until nine so of course this is going to be a 21+ gig. With free admission. - Ryan Mo

Alt-rock Grave School releases debut EP, first burial seminar 9.17

Surf pop sinew meets Dinosaur Jr. soul in San Fernando Valley's newest alt-rock incarnation Grave School. Despite making a quiet entrance into the scene, this band has been in the works for a long time: singer/guitarist Gina Almaguer (Sheer) met drummer Aldo Felix (ACxDC, Human Garbage) online through mutual friends about two years ago.

"Grave School has technically been in the making since late 2013, when me and Aldo first started jamming — just the two of us."

Their busy schedules gave the project slow momentum, but patience has its virtues — Aldo and Gina also found able bodies from their circles: Daniel Castro (guitar/vox), Marisa Shirar (bass/vox), and Gilbert "Guzie" Guzman (Nomads, Sleepwalkers). Self-described as a pop-oriented, even cheesy, fun band, the vocals of Marisa, Daniel, and Gina (yes, they all sing) lifts listeners with '60s guitar jangle before burying them in six feet of dirtbox distortion. 

Grave School released their debut EP via Bandcamp earlier this month, and will play their first show at the Ventura Music Factory on September 17th, supporting Choir Vandals (St. Louis) with Papertowns. (Phoenix) and Living Ghosts (Oxnard). Take note, and check out the first song "Clutch" to their EP below. - Ryan Mo
