JOTS + Vitaminsforyou Debut Blank Capsule

Posted on Nov 12th, 2010

This Saturday, Red Bull Canada is throwing a massive audio/visual event in Vancouver called Megahurtz. Our boys Jokers Of The Scene will be taking the stage, but not as the DJ duo you know and love. Instead, they will be performing as Blank Capsule, a new live band team-up with Vitaminsforyou. Stay tuned for video from the show and more BC news; meanwhile, get a taste of what this combo has in store on their track from Fool’s Gold Vol 1, “Power Slave.”

The Suzan In LA

Posted on Nov 1st, 2010

The Suzan make their Los Angeles live debut this Tuesday (11/2), rocking the Dim Mak party at Cinespace. Don’t miss it (or the special guest, neither).

Also: check this lengthy post on the girls from Amy of Titus Andronicus that dips into Japanese history, philosophy, and all the reasons why they are awesome. To wit:

“The Suzan, like Sharon Jones, is making hits that would be just at home on the radios of the 1950’s as they would today. But they’re also like Sleigh Bells. Don’t ignore the fact that they’re crafting something entirely new—a vision of pop that draws on punk and on Motown, on riot grrrl and on a post-feminist future. It’s a vision of a world in which I, for one, would like to participate. And I hope you will too.”
