Reviews: Deltron 3030 at Fingerprints, Red Hare and Coliseum at The Satellite (plus eating out with Dirty Beaches and SISU)

After a 13-year-long hiatus, the Deltron 3030 super group has reunited for a full LP, some festival shows, and… a couple of free in-stores? Pretty damn cool that the heroic trio of Dan The Automator, Del The Funky Homosapien, and Kid Koala would play a Long Beach record shop. But after a long day of travel and press, they had to eat. Good thing Berlin is connected to Fingerprints. Left to right: Dan The Automator, me, Kid Koala, and my pal Paul Kwon scarfing an early dinner at Berlin. How cool is it that there is a coffee house that serves high-end food connected to the record store? Brilliant and tasty, too. Del didn’t eat with us because he was...

Dirty Beaches and SISU at The Echo, RAD at Permanent Records, Shizu Saldamando at VPAM

After circling the world once or twice and releasing a double album, 10″ soundtrack, and a bunch of digital mixtapes, Dirty Beaches came back to L.A. last Friday, teamed up with soulmates SISU as well as Chasms from San Francisco. The opening duo from San Francisco were raw and cool, like the swirling goth of Siouxsie meets the industrial tone of post-Dils, post-Rank & File Blackbird.

Sandra Vu on the new SISU record and tour with Dirty Beaches

Has Mario Rubalcaba ever been in a less-than-killer band? John Reis? Ian Svenonious? James Canty? No way, not even sub-par despite surveying a variety of collaborators, genres, and styles. Add to the list of rad musicians in a ton of impeachable bands Sandra Vu. I dug Midnight Movies, love Dum Dum Girls, and am a massive supporter of her psychedelic goth solo gig, SISU. I’m dying to hear her new material live and extra stoked that she and her crew are touring with Alex Hungtai a.k.a. Mr. Dirty Beaches. Dude. That is a rad lineup and I hope this brief Q&A inspires some of you to check it out. MW: I still haven’t heard the new Blood Tears LP! How...
