The Sads Live

To mark the end of Dave Scott Stone's weeklong residency, The Sads and Dave will be playing a very special afternoon set.

The Sads are LA's Traveling Wilburys, a veritable all-star band. Alleged Gallery's Aaron Rose, Unwound and The Melvins' Dave Scott Stone, photographer Dan Monick, Moonrat's and intermittent Family staff member Aska Matsumiya. If this weren't enough the Sads are represented by Teenage Teardrops, so their recordings have Cali Dewitt's seal of quality.
Sunday 9 - Thursday 13 between 4-7p

Arthur Presents Brad Laner at Family.
This Sunday December 2nd 8pm FREE


From the LA Weekly: Laner is probably best known as the front man of Medicine, an L.A.-based guitar band that made a string of excellent noise-pop records during the first half of the '90s. Unabashedly melodic but caked with a thick layer of texture and fuzz, Medicine's music was viewed by many as an American counterpart to stuff by English shoegazer groups like My Bloody Valentine and Ride.

'Neighbor Singing' is the first album he's issued under his own name. Culled from pieces of music Laner's been recording at home over the past few years, it's a stunner, a gorgeous little psych-pop gem that distills all of Laner's work down to one easily consumable (yet deceptively complicated) essence. Catchy choruses, cool guitar noises, warm-and-fuzzy electronic squiggles - they're all here.
