UNORTHODOX POST: Complicated Dance Steps Label Showcase

Hey laureates! I started a record label called Complicated Dance Steps and we have a label showcase TOMORROW NIGHT at Vacation Vinyl in Silverlake. We have 3 bands playing, and since you probably haven't had the chance to fall in love with them yet, I have a few teaser haikus to get you excited for Friday night:

Son Fish

Shrouded enigma,
Kaoscillator wizard
Commands his machines

Sneaky Snake

Theirs is the voice of
The forest when trees fall in
Morning light, alone


The subtlest and most
Dignified use of trombone
Layering we know.

I hope to see you Friday, and if you have any questions about the releases, please email! :) Happy holidaze from Concert Haikus!

OFF! at Vacation Vinyl, 12/14/10

Lest we forget, they're
The architects and experts
And still do it best.

Robedoor, Warm Climate, RGB and Cristopher Cichocki at Pehrspace, 12/6/10


Like earth-tone lazers
Slicing through a forest fog

Warm Climate

Though casual and,

Spirit was flawless

Cristopher Cichocki

A showcase of the
Extremes of human A/V


Playful and bold, their
Fresh material heaved with

Jens Lekman at Skybar, 12/4/10

His sunbeam of a
Voice could only combat the
Night's dark vibe so well.

Liars at Thesex, 12/3/10

Perhaps it was the
Venue, but their performance
Felt legendary.

Roger Waters performing The Wall at The Staples Center, 11/30/10

In the realm of forms,
Pure liberal beauty and zeal
Looks and sounds like this.
