Oohlas To Headline NME Gig

Post by Silver Ginger » Wed May 07, 2008 11:50 am

Just spotted this on NME's site.
Good to see them get a (albeit very small) bit of press coverage here.

The Oohlas are set to headline Club NME Los Angeles with Fred Perry Subculture tomorrow night (May 7).

The Los Angeles trio, which includes former Everclear drummer Greg Eklund, are set to bring their scuzzy guitar pop to Club NME-goers.

Local band Solarcade, who recently opened for The Killers, will kick off the night.

Resident DJs Dia, Neil and surprise guest DJs will spin a mix of rock, electronica, punk and hip-hop before and after the sets.

Club NME with Fred Perry Subculture takes place at Spaceland in the Silver Lake neighbourhood of Los Angeles every Wednesday night.

I f**king love this band.

Here's a review for the gig...................................

http://www.nme.com/news/club-nme-la/36490

The Oohlas gave a rousing performance at Club NME Los Angeles with Fred Perry Subculture last night (May 7).

The Los Angeles four-piece adeptly combined scuzzy guitar hooks with soaring vocals by frontwoman Olivia Stone. Dressed in a cherry-covered dress, she channelled Courtney Love and Kim Deal while singing and rocking out on guitar.

The band played several tracks from their 2006 debut album 'Best Stop Pop', as well as 'Small Parts', which was featured on the soundtrack to 2007's 'Spider-Man 3'.

Greg Eklund (formerly of Everclear) skilfully manned the drums, but at times his beats were so powerful they drowned out the rest of the band.

The crowd danced and cheered throughout most of the band's 40-minute set.

The Oohlas played:

'Stain'
'Tripped'
'Take Me Home'
'Lemmings Anthem'
'TV Dinner'
'Small Parts'
'Octopus'
'Show Shoes'
'Across The Stars In Blue'

I wonder if Greg was playing the drums or if the author was just confused since Greg used to play drums for Everclear...usually Greg plays guitar and they have a touring drummer. At least from what I've seen...

Yeah, that's what I was wondering too.

It's good to see they have some new songs!
