JD Samson + MenJD Samson + MEN are performing tonight at the Echoplex in Los Angeles and Friday at Rickshaw Stop in San Francisco. The band, formerly called MEN but recently renamed for clarity (try searching just MEN and see what you come up with!), is a Brooklyn-based art/performance collective led by JD Samson (of Le Tigre) and Michael O'Neill, with Le Tigre bandmate Johanna Fateman and artist Emily Roysdon contributing as writers, consultants, and producers. When MEN performed at Amoeba Hollywood last year, they were joined by Tami Hart on bass and guitar. For this West Coast tour, they are performing as a four-piece for the first time.

Watch their full performance from Amoeba Hollywood:


Samson, who is a leader in the LGBT community, wanted to create dance music that also spoke to her Men Talk About Bodypolitics, beliefs, and passions. Formed in 2007, MEN released their debut full-length album, Talk About Body, on IAMSOUND Records in February 2011. This February, the band released Next, the first in a series of four EPs to be released this year that further mix dance floor beats with politics and life issues. They also recently performed at Occupy Wall Street on May Day.

Patrick Watson at the Bootleg Theater in LA, June 8th

Posted by Amoebite, May 7, 2012 06:00pm | Post a Comment
Amoeba Music is proud to present Patrick Watson at the Bootleg Theater in Los Angeles on Friday, JunePatrick Wilson 8th at 9pm!

Patrick Watson first broke through to audiences in 2006 with his album Close to Paradise. The album went gold in Canada and won numerous awards, including the Polaris Prize. It saw international release in September of 2007 and has since sold over 100,000 copies worldwide. His core four-piece band began to take shape in the wake of the self-released Just Another Ordinary Day in 2003, and before long buzz on their live show had lead to performances with an impressively diverse group of artists, from Phillip Glass and Steve Reich to Feist.

Patrick Watson Adventures In Your Own BackyardWatson's latest album, Adventures In Your Own Backyard, was just released May 1, 2012 on Domino Records, and was recorded entirely in his Montreal apartment after a whirlwind five-year tour. The result is an album that is still ripe with the touchstones one has come to expect from Patrick Watson and his collaborators, but permeated with a greater sense of patience and confidence. It's an attempt by Watson and the band to simplify their sights—to make music a bit more close to home in every sense of the phrase.
