Marvelous Toy, The Flying Tourbillon Orchestra (w/Angele Correa), Radars To The Sky, Death To Anders 2/15/09 - All-Star Lanes, Los Angeles,CA.

(apologies on the lateness of this post - it's been a busy week, and this took longer to put together than I thought it would)

This post-Valentine's Day, Radio Free Silverlake and The Eagle Rock Bowling and Drinking Club presented "Undercovered: Great L.A. Bands Celebrating Great L.A. Bands." It was a great night of 4 bands from the L.A. indie scene covering and paying homage to bands from the same area.

And what a great night it was. Marvelous Toy covered The Henry Clay People. The Flying Tourbillon Orchestra covered The Monolators. Radars To The Sky covered Rilo Kiley. Death To Anders covered The Happy Hollows. The audience wore hats on their feet and hamburgers ate people. (okay, maybe the last part didn't happen - well, that I know of anyway)

Previously, I had only seen a couple of Death To Anders songs live and Angela Correa twice. As someone who's still learning about a lot of locally-based musicians, I confess I wasn't familar with alot of what was being covered. However, what I heard was good, and look forward to seeing any of these people perform in the future.

The venue itself was interesting - this show took place in the bar of a bowling alley (a teeny one too, around 22 lanes). I was kind of afraid of the surrounding environment because, let's face it, bars are usually super-noisy. However, these came out really well considering.
