Haunted Summer

October 27, 2014

The songs of Haunted Summer are dreamy and hypnotic, rich with orchestral strings and sultry electronic textures, and with their 2013 EP, Something in the Water, the group crafted a captivatingly-ethereal musical journey through a nostalgic world of young love and long-forgotten memories. Consisting of Bridgette Moody and John Seasons, who share songwriting duties in a true collaboration, the Los Angeles duo have shared the stage and toured with groups and performers including, among others, The Polyphonic Spree, Taken By Trees, Laura Stevenson, The Radar Brothers, and Avi Buffalo. They have toured the country and played venues such as Amoeba Hollywood, The Echoplex, The Great American Music Hall, The Troubadour, The El Rey Theatre and many more.

Having just completed a nine-date tour with Islands and other tour dates with David J of Bauhaus and Jacco Gardner, plus a 14-date headlining tour across the country, Haunted Summer is poised to bring their enchantingly-psychedelic sound to the mainstream. Upcoming Haunted Summers shows will also feature Grammy winner Carla Morrison and acclaimed band Deafheaven. READ MORE

Anton Newcombe

April 23, 2014

Los Angeles native Anton Newcombe is one of the most talented — and enigmatic — figures in music history.

After moving to San Francisco, Newcombe rose to equal parts fame and notoriety in the 1990s as the frontman for psychedelic rock band The Brian Jonestown Massacre, who released a trio of critically-acclaimed albums — Take it from the Man!, Their Satanic Majesties’ Second Request and Thank God for Mental Illness — in 1996 alone before signing with a major label and releasing Strung Out in Heaven in 1998.

In 2004, Newcombe and The Brian Jonestown Massacre were the subjects of DiG!, a documentary which focused on their relationship with the members of fellow San Francisco band The Dandy Warhols. The film won the Documentary Grand Prize at the Sundance Film Festival.

Newcombe currently resides in Berlin, Germany with his wife and their son,Wolfgang. While the band’s lineup has changed over the years, Newcombe continues to perform with The Brian Jonestown Massacre and, in May of 2014, they will headline the Austin Psych Fest and release their 14th studio album, Revelation. More information can be found on the Brian Jonestown Massacre website. READ MORE
