It's blazing hot in Los Angeles.
We stay cool writing and practicing in our rehearsal rooms!
We've hosted hundreds of bands at this point here at ESR. So many have become friends and great supporters of our business and we thank you.
We have some events coming up in the fall - We are planning a regular live music series on the patio featuring some of the talented bands that rehearse here. Let us know if your band might be interested in playing one of our events. So far we've had Earth Arrow, Alma Sangre with Fredo Ortiz, and flamenco guitarist Ben Woods.
We've filled out our staff to better serve our clientele; Sergio has been with us for a while now, Carlos joined us back in the spring and Sofie is here for the summer but is leaving for college in Oregon.
Good luck Sofie!
In personal news, ESR owners Meg and Tony's band All Souls is having a busy year which started in the U.K. with a tour supporting the godfathers of Desert Rock, Fatso Jetson. We released our first S/T record in February (CD on Sunyata Records, vinyl pressed by Ruined Vibes), toured the states with sludge heavy weights the Melvins with a return to LA show opening for stoner rock legends Sleep at the Wiltern! Now we are gearing up for another US jaunt with the incredible Jesus Lizard in September.
THE ROCK NEVER STOPS!!
