Rudy de Anda
March 1, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Rudy De Anda is bursting out of the musical melting pot of the LBC. As frontman for the Long Beach psych-prog group Wild Pack of Canaries, Rudy felt the creative pull to begin a solo project that is catching fire and hitting the festival circuit with plays at last year’s Noise Pop, SXSW, and Music Tastes Good.
2016’s Delay, Cadaver of a Day is the follow-up to De Anda’s debut EP, Ostranenie and broke into the Top 100 in the CMJ charts, coming in at #94.
“The albums have earned de Anda a rightful place in L.A.’s emerging alt-Latino movement, a growing collective of bands — including “big brothers” Chicano Batman, for whom de Anda has opened — that dabble in non-Latino scenes and support one another’s efforts while charting individual paths so distinct it might be a stretch to call it a movement at all.”
In 2013, when the band was treading on and off hiatus, De Anda started writing his own songs and was approached by one of his musical mentors, Isaiah “Ikey” Owens (Mars Volta, Jack White) to record. Lost in their effortless chemistry, the two friends setup sessions in Ikey’s living room in-between his Nashville trips and his Jack White tour schedule.
The band has shared the stage with established acts Warpaint, The Specials, Chicano Batman, Dr. Dog, and No Age to name a few.
Rudy will be here celebrating the 7” release The Mirror, his first for Colemine Records’ Karma Chief imprint. Pile Up will be joining the bill for a short opening set.
Check out the official video for The Mirror as well as a local and live version in the comments.
