Semi Precious Weapons Live

It's like the music gods know exactly how to tease me and weave my worlds together in the most fantastic of ways.   Last week I got invited to an industry event to preview the new album for a band.   I was really excited because the venue is one I fondly refer to as my "Cheers" (omg, you know- where everybody knows your name) and when I found out who the band was, it was even more exciting... I have been a fan of theirs for a minute.

Rewind to last Tuesday night- I walk into Sayers in Hollywood, and make it just in time as Tricky Stewart introduces Semi Precious Weapons.

Word.

SPW is a band from New York that came out to LA around the same time I finally moved here for good, and I have caught a few of their shows in Hollywood and loved them.   They've opened for Lady Gaga and are the perfect kitschy type of weird and awesome that I love.   The lead singer - Justin - is this caricature of what you imagine a rock god should be in 2014... he dresses well, looks perfect and can hit notes like the greats in rock history before him.   There's a level of theatrics to the show that could only come from a NY import, you can feel the grit in the music while you nod along.

Listen to their new single coming out soon... Aviation High


And here are two video sneak peaks I took from the show- sign up for updates on their website and follow as SPW becomes the next big thing.
