Some of my favorite men/ roommates made their live debut Monday night at The Bootleg… heres to em’!
GANGPLANS is a production duo lead by Echo Park/Lake Arrowhead musicians War Gogh and Tiger Smith (ex-Blacks& and Sea of Cortez). Not only do they bang out killer tunage.. the two manage a fantasy football team AND ride bikes together to the local farmers market. Keyboardist Myles Young (Mr. MPH), multi-instrumentalist TJ Abbonizio, and drummer Troy Lawton (A B & The Sea) round out GANGPLANS’ live show.
The newly aligned crew played a short and varied set monday, sprinkled with elements of original sounds, and experimentation. With many friends in attendance… Josh Ballinger on the visuals + Julie Bach with the premier of her new music video… the evening was quite the family affair. Gangplans was able to take a breath entering their first show together and just play. And hey! they sounded good too.
The last song of their set - ‘Like We Never Have’ really grabbed my attention. A definite add to any summer playlists you have in the works.
GANGPLANS is currently working on their debut LP, Alcapwned, which features a different artist per track. The album will be released on digital and vinyl format in Summer of 2013. If this is any indication of the future, we cant wait to see whats next for these bro’s. Stay tuned.
