The Icarus Line does Part Time Punks


The favorite place to be on Sunday nights in Echo Park, CA is the long standing party Part Time Punks, now in it's fifth year. PTP is a self described weekly that focuses on obscure and classic music coming out of America, UK and Europe from '78 to now. Punk, post-punk, new wave, no wave, pop, electro, shoegaze. Expect to see Tim Burgess and Alan McGee lolling about.

It was about time for LA's premiere art-rockers THE ICARUS LINE to hit the PTP stage. TIL play local shows few and far between. This Sunday June 13th at PTP, will be a rare chance to see them on their home turf. Even better, TIL will be blasting through a bunch of new tracks from the full length JCVSTIL (Joe Cardamone vs The Icarus Line) due out this fall. For the few I've played the new tracks to, hands down they all concur, this is a total classic hard, original rock album heart and guts and soul all the way..the kind of album that doesn't leave your turntable. turntable 'cause everything sounds better on vinyl.

check out one of the tracks from JCVSTIL click here WE SICK

Opening is Vice Cooler's new jam ACOCALIPS (Vice Cooler/XBXRX/Hawnay Troof + Tearist). Vice Cooler is one of my favorite people in the world. I watched him go nuts live in a scuzzy texas pool hall and totally piss off the local red necks by openly declaring his love for them. just to be fair, he gave out his home address so they'd know where to find him. Vice is fearless!
