What we're about

This meetup is for all who enjoy the indie genre of music and other genres that influence this diverse category of music! Check out our past and current events to get an idea of what kind of music we listen to!

Would you like someone to go with to see a band that you love but your friends don't? Or do you already have at least one friend to go to a show with but wouldn't mind meeting others who share your taste in music? No problem!

All you need to do is e-mail one of us with the show you want to go to, and we will make you an Assistant Organizer for that show! The more active Assistant Organizers we have, the more diverse and interesting our list of hosted shows will be! We also welcome gigs of local indie bands if they've got catchy tunes!

We mostly go to venues with general admission, so that we can meet up and hang out before and/or during the show. Note: on rare occasions, some shows will be" no-host meetups" and some will be "announcement only", unless someone wants to step in and host it.

There are also occasional meet-and-greets or indie club nights where we can meet up and talk about bands and music without attending an official concert.

If you are in an indie band and would like to share your music with others, contact our Assistant Organizer Tangman. He lines up and hosts bands for indie nights at local breweries, coffeehouses, clubs, and open mic venues. He's also a musician with his own synth pop band Rock-it Writer.

If you have any questions or comments, please don't hesitate to e-mail us!

Lastly, since you're here and reading this, please fill out this music poll, just for kicks and to see what others on listen to: https://www.meetup.com/indiemusic-130/polls/

Cheers,

Asilenna, Organizer

Jennifer and Janet, Co-Organizers

FREE Cool MUSIC! 3 Bands for the price of NONE! Hang @ HiHat in Highland Park

#3 in the series: My curated night of music by indie bands you never heard of... but I think you'll like. Back to the Hi Hat in Highland Park: 3 bands for the price of none! ( See ... it's FREE!) Do I have your attention? The lineup this time: It's rock..post grunge, post punk, post music? -- how do you classify it? If you like your music quiet and sedate, this might not be the night for you -- there will be other nights. ## CROSS-POSTED w/other cool groups - so more people will be there! I like live music and I don't go out and hear enough of it. This is another in my semi-irregular series of music events I'll be posting. I know money can be tight for some - and people are cheap -- so most of these will be FREE. What kind of music? Stuff I think I might like. So let's go Hang with Hipsters at Highland Park's Hi Hat Club . . . and check out these 3 bands: SPARE PARTS FOR BROKEN HEARTS : This is the night's headlining band. "A unique blend of big and beautiful choruses soaring above the heavy pulse of distorted drive" -- according to someone. https://newnoisemagazine.com/stream-spare-parts-broken-hearts-mush/ DANCING TONGUES : Got a little '90's vibe going. Check out "Control" from the link below. https://dancingtongues.bandcamp.com/ POTTY MOUTH : MY TAKE: I liked both Spare Parts and Dancing Tongues (haven't gotten to Potty Mouth yet). TICKETS: Tickets are free. I don't think it's necessary, but if you want to be safe go ahead and register for the FREE tickets here: https://hihat.ticketfly.com/e/spare-parts-for-broken-hearts-55056211611/ HOW TO MEET INFO: I'll post what I'm wearing and where we are in the comments below. And I know it's a weeknight -- so don't worry - you don't have to stay the whole night. Leave when you want. Dr. Martens is the sponsor of the night, so maybe you'll pick up some black boot bling! SET TIMES: Based on the last time, first band starts at 8:30 pm. PARKING: There is lots of street parking in the area and most restrictions end at 8pm if not earlier. There are two adjacent parking lots that are free after 9PM but close at 12AM, so please read all posted signage,

Flipper with David Yow at the Regent Theater

Regent Theater DTLA

Flipper with David Yow from Jesus Lizard singing. Flipper is an American rock band formed in San Francisco, California in 1979, continuing in often erratic fashion until the mid-1990s, then reuniting in 2005. The band influenced a number of grunge, punk rock and noise rock bands. Their slowed-down, bass-driven and heavily distorted style of punk is also considered a key forerunner to sludge, and influenced bands such as the Melvins and Nirvana, whose bass player Krist Novoselic played with the band in the 2000s. Their original bass player died in 1987. Their original singer stopped touring in 2015 due to a bad back so now David Yow from Jesus Lizard and Scratch Acid is singing
