MR. OIZO, MIAMI HORROR & MORE THIS WEEKEND

March is super-stacked with great shows for those of you in Los Angeles! This weekend has 3 amazing shows that we’d like to recommend for you guys.

Friday – Mr. Oizo with Tommy Lee and DJ Aero @ CONTROL Fridays, Avalon, Hollywood

“Mr. Oizo (pronounced ‘Monsieur Wah-zoh’) is the pseudonym of French music producer Quentin Dupieux. Dupieux is most famous for his electro track “Flat Beat”, which became a hit all across Europe in 1999 for being featured in a series of Levi’s jeans TV advertisements. Dupieux also directed the ad, which featured a yellow puppet named Flat Eric nodding his head to the sound of the track while riding in a pickup truck. Flat Eric later appeared in the music video for ‘Flat Beat'”. -Avalonhollywood.com

Saturday – DeVotchKa @ The Music Box, Hollywood

“Denver based group DeVotchKa’s new album 100 Lovers is now in stores everywhere. For this, their fifth record, the band again headed to the vastness of the Arizona desert with producer Craig Schumacher (Calexico, Neko Case). The resulting work is as epic as the landscape in which it was recorded, the 15 new songs offering an emotionally charged sonic expansiveness while retaining all the heartfelt romance and celebratory energy for which the group is known.” –devotchka.net
