Indie Rox

August 19, 2010 The Roxy is having one hell of an indie show.

Sabrosa Purr headlines the night. This band’s last two releases have been critically acclaimed and their brand new full-length album To The Crickets and The Ghost (produced by Stone Temple Pilots producer Tracy Chisholm) is picking up a lot of steam. The band was also featured in June’s issue of Vice Magazine.

Italian Japanese is an LA based band who has been compared to bands like Silversun Pickups with the fun riffs of Cold War Kids but with the ability to stand on their own. The music is truly beautiful and something that we would not want to miss live. Their newest release The Lush, Romantic Weirdness describes the album quite accurately.

Jets Overhead formed in 2003 and has been making waves ever since. Straight out of British Columbia, Canada, the LA indie scene fits this band like a glove. They are signed to Warner Music Canada and their latest release No Nations can be streamed in its entirety here

Last but not least, The Sea of Cortez is the opening band this night. The band began in San Diego in 2006 and relocated to LA in 2008 where they build their own studio and began writing and recording their newest album Make It Sound. The album is slated to come out this year. Check out their singles here
