A winning combination exists between larger than life Of Mexican Descent poet 2Mex and Mars Volta keyboardist Ikey Owens- and that combination goes by the name Look Daggers. Combining 2Mex's flair for rhymes and charisma along with Ikey's indie rock influence, the two enlisted fellow musicians Mendee Ichikawa, Jesse Wilder, Chris Clawson and Travis Laws to create their hip hop-flavored grooves with an alt-rock vigor. Formed in Long Beach, Look Daggers return to the city of their birthplace, home to other brilliant rock acts. Tonight they play Alex's Bar along with Mel Ziah Dia and Nice Guy X Vinny.
