Robotanists & Atlantic Line @ The Garden Party in Downtown LA - 4/10/10

On Saturday night, I went to one of the coolest little shows I've ever been to in LA. I saw Robotanists & Atlantic Line at The Garden Party in Downtown LA. I'm not sure if The Garden Party is the actual venue name or if we just happened to be seeing a show inside someone's loft or Downtown office but, regardless, the atmosphere was chill, the setting was intimate & both bands were killer. The fact they were selling $3 cans of Tecate didn't hurt either. I do love me some cheap beer :-)

Sarah Ellquist de Blanke of Robotanists struck me right away as a sexy little blonde but then, when I heard her voice, I kinda fell in love. Robotanists are a band everyone has to see live. I'll even go as far as to predict they'll be on the Coachella lineup next year. Their next 2 shows are on April 26th at Spaceland & May 23rd at The Dakota Lounge & I'll definitely be at both shows.

Atlantic Line is a band I didn't even know I'd be seeing on Saturday night. I thought Robotanists were playing one set for their record release show & that was going to be it. When I heard there was going to be another band, I figured I'd stick around to see if they were any good & I am SO happy I did. I hate to make comparisons but Atlantic Line reminds me of Radiohead &, since Radiohead is one of my favorite bands, I was hooked after just one song.

Atlantic Line's next show is on May 6th at The Silverlake Lounge &,
after checking out their full album which you can download for free at http://atlanticlinemusic.com/album.php, I have a feeling some of you will be joining me.
