4-17-15: We were stoked to play "The God in our Glass" on Balcony TV with our friend Eric Lilavois


4-26-14: Here's a video of one of our collaborations with The Ten Thousand at our last show. This is our "Tentrilqouists" version of their tune, "Chisel Away"



4-20-14: Our Next Show

3-26-14: 4/20 is coming up! We are doing another Sunday afternoon collaboration-thon at The Mint. This time we'll be playing with one of our favorite LA Bands,
The Ten Thousand.

Doors are at 2pm.

Get tickets to this show here.
Get more details on our Facebook event page here.

Those of you who came to our last iteration of this format know that it is a really freakin' cool way to watch music. Our collaboration with Eric Lilavois (known at Ventrilovois) was a great interweaving of the two groups that created a sound neither has by itself. We will most definitely be doing a show with them again. We're really looking forward to seeing what happens with The Ten Thousand in the format.

We shall name this group The Tentriloquists

1-29-14: Well, we've been holed for for a while, eh? Busy, busy...

Well, Sunday February 16, we're about to change that by having what we're affectionately calling "The Profane Gospel Brunch" with Eric Lilavois at The Mint, on Pico, at 2:00pm.

We will be interweaving our songs into 2 sets that move inbetween songs that are grouped together by their vibe, rather than who sings it. We're really looking forward to it. Lots of collaborations and experimenting with covers. Good times.

Both tunes were produced with the help of our friend Eric Lilavois (Crown City Recording Studios).

12-22-12: Apparently, the world didn't end, so "Gomorrah" is now $1. That, on the other hand is not the end of the world.

"Gomorrah" features Itai Shapira (Decoders) on sitar, and the 90's R&B singing master, David Timnick (Intronaut), on Drums. It was produced with help from our friend Josh Rumer (Invengo Productions).

12-21-12: Danny & Ian played with our good friends The Herbert Bail Orchestra this morning on Good Morning LA and last night at Harvard and Stone for the release of their awesome new album, The Future's in the Past.

12-12-12: DOWNLOAD OUR NEW TUNE FOR FREE until 12/21/12. It's called "Gomorrah," and is a little ditty to celebrate the end of the world. Check out the bazaar scene in the last minute. Butt-rock-epicness.

12-5-12: Danny & David are playing on the #1 blues album in the country. Congrats, guys!

12-3-12: This last Sunday was spent in Crown City Studios in Pasadena, working on "The Scream Before the Silence," one of the new tunes we're currently recording & mixing. The venerable Carina Round just recorded some kick-ass vocals for the 2nd movement of the piece. We're super-stoked how it's coming together.

11-25-12: I know it's been a while since we've played a show for you guys, but you'll be happy with the new tracks. It'll be worth the wait
