RSVP here to see Holy Fuck with James Supercave and Wunder Wunder May 22 at The Roxy for Red Bull’s next Sound Select show in Los Angeles. The show is only $3 with an RSVP.

Canadian electro-pop band Holy Fuck began as almost an experiment in sound—how can you make electronic music without actually using electronic instruments? Rather than laptops and sequencers, the band chose to use film equipment, toys and other non-instruments to achieve similar effects.

Fast forward 10 years, and they’re sharing stages with the likes of Skrillex at EDM festivals without losing an ounce of their outsider cool. The band’s next show sees them headlining the next Red Bull Sound Select show in Los Angeles May 22 at The Roxy with Aussie/L.A. psych-pop band Wunder Wunder (read an interview here) and L.A. indie pop band James Supercave. We caught up with the band (made up of Brian Borcherdt, Graham Walsh, Matt McQuaid and Matt Schulz) a week before the show.

RSVP here to see Wunder Wunder with Holy Fuck and James Supercave May 22 at The Roxy for Red Bull’s next Sound Select show in Los Angeles. The show is only $3 with an RSVP.

wunder wunderIf there’s ever been a group that fused the sensibilities of two places they've come from, it’s Wunder Wunder, an Australian band that now live in L.A. The band hails from a place known for its awesome psych-pop bands, like Tame Impala and Jagwar Ma, to name a few, but they’ve got a distinctly easygoing, SoCal vibe, too, on songs like the glittering “Coatstline.”

Even though we’ve only heard two songs so far from the band, we’re already pumped about the prospects they offer. The duo’s debut album, Everything Infinite, is out July 15. We caught up with the band, made up of Aaron Shanahan and Benjamin Plant (who are also in electro-pop band Miami Horror) before their May 22 show with Holy Fuck and James Supercave at The Roxy May 22.

Holy Fuck

Toronto-based Holy Fuck have released three albums of genre-pushing electronica, using unorthodox “instruments” such as film synchronizers and toy instruments in addition to electronic elements in order to create danceable beats and mesmerizing sounds. Their latest album is called Latin, and they’re working on a new one right now.

Supporting Holy Fuck at this show will be a couple of Los Angeles acts. James Supercave writes upbeat electro-pop with heartfelt vocals, as can be heard on his latest release, The Afternoon EP, which was just release last month. Wunder Wunder, an Australian, L.A.-based duo of producers who make shimmering, modern electronic pop with psychedelic touches, will open the show, followed by James Supercave and Holy Fuck.

L.A. Vegan Beer & Food Festival May 17

Vegan Beer Fest

Los Angeles is the mecca for music, a hotbed for food trucks, and home to some of the coolest micro breweries so a festival that showcases all three elements is a no brainer. With the rising popularity of health consciousness in Southern California, it's also no surprise that the Los Angeles Vegan Beer & Food Festival has quickly become a local favorite.

This year's fest marks the 5th annual event and it's getting bigger and bigger each year. Over 40 craft breweries and 35+ food trucks/restaurants will be on hand to fill up your cups and bellies. To enhance your taste-testing delights (and maybe burn a few calories from dancing) festival producers enlisted five of LA's coolest bands, including He's My Brother She's My Sister and Leftover Cuties. It's all going down Saturday, May 17 across from The Roxy (8950 W. Sunset Blvd) in West Hollywood. 

Amoeba Hollywood is a proud sponsor of this amazing fest and we'll have Amoebites on hand to pass out some goodies!
