Glam-rockin’ garage dude King Tuff will headline the next Red Bull Sound Select show in Los Angeles May 28 at the Del Monte Speakeasy.

This 21+ show is just $3 with an RSVP and $12 at the door. (RSVP does not guarantee you entry, so plan to arrive early.) It’s curated by our friends at Flood Magazine.

L.A.’s King Tuff first hit big with his 2012 self-titled debut, a rollicking collection of lo-fi pop rock jams about how awesome it is to be “Alone & Stoned,” among other subjects. He followed with 2014’s heavier and headier Black Moon Spell, which looks to proto-metal titans like Blue Cheer and Black Sabbath for inspiration while still retaining his signature pop hooks and catchy riffs. Watch the video for “Black Moon Spell” below for a taste.

Amoeba has curated the next Red Bull Sound Select show in L.A., featuring electro-poppers Milo Greene.

The show, which is 21+, takes place Wednesday, April 29 at The Echo. RSVP for a $3 entry. (RSVP does not guarantee entry; plan to arrive early.) It’s $12 without an RSVP at the door.

Milo Greene features the work of four very talented people. On their latest album, Control, Marlana Sheetz takes the lead for the cool Hollywood dance-pop of “White Lies,” sitting nicely alongside likeminded artists such as HAIM and Jessie Ware, while the male-fronted songs from her three bandmates are no less beguiling, as “On the Fence” draws influence from the likes of A-ha for a smart and instantly pleasurable new wave-jam.

They’re joined at this show by L.A.-based Avid Dancer, the indie pop-rock project helmed by Jacob Summers. Summers grew up an outsider to popular music in a devoutly Christian household. After serving in the Marines for four years, Summers has since come into his own as a musician, touring with the likes of Hamilton Leithauser, Cold War Kids and Warpaint. Hear the soulful “Stop Playing With My Heart” below:
