Little Boots, SBTRKT and NewVillager are all slated for this fall’s Mondrian Sessions…
A free show? Great. A free show curated by a local label? Even better. A free show curated by a local label at a swanky rooftop bar? Count us in.
L.A.’s own IAMSOUND Records is teaming up once again with the Mondrian Hotel for a new slate of free Mondrian Sessions at its posh Skybar. The poolside concert series kicks off this Friday September 23rdwith an acoustic set from UK electropop darling Little Boots.
Other artists to perform include masked funk-dubstep DJ SBTRKT(who’s also slated to play this year’s HARD Haunted Mansion) on Oct. 24 and rising art-synth duo NewVillager Oct. 20. Guest DJs will spin before and after the sets, with label GM Paul Tao lined up for Friday.
The Mondrian Sessions are more than just another freebie night out – IAMSOUND has a knack for attracting artists sizzling with hype but who have the bite to back it up (past performers include Lykke Li, Peter Bjorn and John and Fool’s Gold). The series has also been known to switch it up, hosting film screenings and other music-related events, like the West Coast premiere of the Creation Records documentary Upside Down. Factor in the mod decor and one of the finest views of the city’s skyline, and you have yourself an evening that’s quintessentially and memorably L.A. RSVP here for any of the upcoming shows, but be sure to show up early as they quickly hit capacity.
