Double Dose of Drone: White Rainbow, Windy & Carl in Los Angeles this weekend


Windy & Carl’s “Undercurrent” from their 2001 album, Depths.


Los Angeles hosts some of the best bands in the country this weekend (if one were to judge such things based on the soundsystem at Arthur’s Atwater office and distribution center) creating a real stumper when it comes to Friday night. If you forgot to snatch tickets for the Animal Collective/Grouper show at the Wiltern and you’re sitting out on the Brightblack show in Eagle Rock for some reason, then might we suggest you consider Windy & Carl along with White Rainbow on Friday at Synchronicity Space? Local avant-dub banana-peelers Sun Araw are also on the bill, which is good news. Here’s the details:

Who: Windy & Carl, White Rainbow, Nudge, Fantastic Sleep, and Sun Araw
Where: Synchronicity Space
4306 Melrose Ave.
Los Angeles, CA 90029
When: Friday May 29, 8pm to 12am
How much: $5

Adam “White Rainbow” Forkner explains his music to Pauly Shore.


And in case you’re going to be at either the AC or BBML happenings on Friday (or if you’re coming down from Dublab’s Tonalism up in Big Sur), you can still gorge yourself on gentle granola drones as Windy & Carl and White Rainbow will be playing on Saturday afternoon at Echo Curio.
