02.13: Moaning plays a free show at the reopened Moon Room

If you recall the dust-up at the Atwater Bar last year, you may have written off the space -- as well as the Griffin -- as a place to catch live music in LA for good. But never fear, because the Moon Room has opened its doors on that site, and shoegaze alt-rockers Moaning will play a free show there on February 13th. The trio have a new album called Uneasy Laughter dropping in March, on which they'll debut their more synth-friendly sound. While the usual doom-tinged drum & bass and abrasive guitars aren't going anywhere, Moaning have brought a few new instruments into the mix to add a little texture to their tracks. It'll make you laugh, it'll make you dance, and it'll make you want more. Take a look at the video for the album's first track "Ego" below, and catch Moaning at the Moon Room on 2/13. - Will Sisskind

   

02.02: Slaughterhouse lead stacked Super Bowl bill at Moroccan Lounge

You may neither root for the 49ers or the Chiefs, and that's okay. Head down to the Moroccan Lounge while everyone else chokes down chicken wings and beer for a stacked indie bill with Slaughterhouse supporting Seattle's Monsterwatch. The group put out a couple of new singles back in November, and have remained active throughout the winter hitting the stage. The Moroccan Lounge show is their first of the month, and the period of increased performing points towards more to come in the spring and summer from the punk quarter. Take a listen to Slaughterhouse's cover of X's "Nausea", their latest single, and run to the Moroccan Lounge on February 2nd to hear them play live. - Will Sisskind

A Deli Premiere: "You Lie (IDGAF)" by The Z-Boys

The lead single from Rhode Island’s The Z-Boys’ debut full-length record has now an accompanying music video that is brash and hilarious. “You Lie (IDGAF)” kicks off with a surfy guitar riff that is steely as hell, the rhythm section then locks in to welcome gruff vocals, and it all meshes well in the song’s punchy choruses. The music video is a good-old country American living done by a mannequin you don’t want to tread on; he rips a mean rock solo. The music that the Newport-based collective that is The Z-Boys deploys has placed them in the same stages as known groups like Arrested Development and Fishbone; the group’s upcoming record Elwood is slated for a March 6th release. You can catch the band vibing out and jamming their tunes at Parlor Newport on February 1st. Stream the music video premiering here below for a seriously good jam. - Rene Cobar
