The set began with “Precious Flaw.” It wasn’t exactly the most … [Read more...] about Disalto Rocks LaBries

They sneakily began their set with “Bang Bang” (which is also the lead track from their latest albumTelevolution). They all got up on stage and then without an introduction, Mark Matkevich began striking the bass keys of his keyboard on what would … [Read more...] about The Spies rock The Silverlake Lounge
