After a phenomenal record release show last Saturday (thanks to excellent support acts Maus Haus, 60 Watt Kid, Montra, co-presenters Aquarius Records and KALX, and of course the excellent Rickshaw Stop!) Social Studies are hitting the road for a short West Coast run.
Their new album, Wind Up Wooden Heart, is a hard-charging tour de force matched only by the high energy Social Studies live show. Believe me when I say that this is a band you need to see live.
They hit Los Angeles later this week for a couple of club shows and a special performance at Origami Vinyl (our condolences to everyone planning for the LA Heardfest, canceled in the wake of LA crackdowns on public events following a couple of high profile rave meltdowns in the past couple of months) followed by a run up to Portland and Seattle next week, before returning for the very cool Rock Make Street Festival in San Francisco on August 22nd. Do not miss this.
