If you're in Los Angeles, this is a last-minute plug for Portland-based "Chiantown Dance-Rock" band The Slants who are teaming up with Giant Robot for an in-store appearance and performance. It's happening Friday, November 19 at GR2 in Los Angeles. Here are some more details:
Sounds like it's going to be a more stripped-down, acoustic set. Should be cool! For more information about the event, go to the GR2 website here or the Facebook event page here. And for more information about the band, go to The Slants' website here.
Giant Robot Presents: The Slants at GR2
Friday, November 19
6:00pm - 8:00pm
Giant Robot Los Angeles (GR2)
2062 Sawtelle Boulevard
Los Angeles, CA
Giant Robot is proud to host an in-store appearance and performance by The Slants.
Since the band's first show in 2007, The Slants have had their fair share of press for touring the nation six times, rejecting a million dollar recording contract, being banned from a venue in Portland due to breathing fire, being considered "too controversial" for the state of Oregon, and were the first and only Asian band to be a Fender Music featured artist.
The appearance at GR2 will include a special acoustic set as well as time for fans to meet the band in a casual, non-club or arena setting.
