The Mae Shi will headline the latest event from Sam Farzin's Acrobatics Everyday organization. The action goes down Sun. April 13, starting with a noon pre-gig picnic at Aldrich Park. Then at 1 p.m. at UC Irvine's nearby Phoenix Grille, five bands will come at ya with some weird, youthful energy.
Before the headliners come OC pop sparkplugs the Henry Clay People, LA's Blackblack, Glasser (a.k.a. eerie, lo-fi, tribal songstress Cameron Mesirow) and Oakland's Destroy Tokyo. Los Angeles' the Mae Shi, who play spiky, sugar-rush pop (Red Bull flows in their veins). Their new album, Hlllyh, is a jolting blast of zig-zag wonder. (That's good, by the way.)
Cover is $5, all ages welcome. Go here for more info.
