by LA1 News

     The band Parquet Courts is headlining two nights at Highland Park American Legion hall on Saturday, February 27 and Sunday, February 28, from 7:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. A Brooklyn, New York band made up of Texas transplants playing a satisfying blend of punk rock occasionally infused with country influence, the group has sold out for the first night. The second night will be sold out before the day of the show. The band is playing with psychedelic rock heartthrob Chris Cohen on Saturday. Cohen is the child of a former music business executive Kip Cohen and former Broadway actress Lynn Carlisle. His sister is public radio reporter and host Alex Cohen. On Sunday's show Parquet Courts will play with "special guests," according to the event's flyer.

The Mormons Celebrate 16 Years at Cafe NELA

by LA1 NEWS:

Northeast Los Angeles band The Mormons celebrated their 16th year with a "Sweet 16" party at Cafe NELA in Cypress Park on Saturday, August 30. Punk legends Bloody Brains opened for the show. Cafe NELA has quickly evolved into perhaps the last surviving legitimate live rock venue in Northeast Los Angeles (NELA). With the transplant version of The Vex closed down recently in El Sereno, and Mr. T's all but closed aside from a couple of low-key events hosted recently, the future is far from certain when it comes to live music venues in the Northeast which will be open to the local music scene.
