Back to back. Silverlake is where it's at. The Remainers opened up for The Smiths Indeed (a Smiths tribute band) on Tuesday at The Satellite, formerly known as Spaceland. The set list was the same as the last show, nevertheless, it sounded better. The Satellite has a cool stage, dandy lighting and the set-up of the venue made the show very enjoyable that all of the band members' energy was wooing the crowd (a lot of them were head bobbing. Oh and they also have a photo booth, a pool table).
The Remainers also announced that proceeds from their album sales (of that night) will be donated to help Japan (so admirable).
The Remainers played at the Silverlake Lounge Thursday night following an all girl band from Minneapolis called Is/Is. Both bands played well, however The Remainers really put on a great show. The energy from all the band members including Nate (vocalist), Frank (keyboards), Kaumyar (drums) and Jason (bassist) was stunning. The crowd was definitely enjoying good live music. They played all of their Formal Friday EP plus a few new songs. My favorite tracks are "When You Need Me" and "House."
Some of Jason and my friends joined me as part of the crowd and supported the band. Next show is March 15th at The Satellite and we will be there.
