10 Things You Have to Do This Weekend



Page 2 of 10

Thu 5/7
Mr. Elevator and the Brain Hotel


Start with a bit of Phil Spector’s generous girl group sound, then add a dash of The Doors’ wild carnival keys, a touch of The Beatles’ stranger side and a photo of Johnny Rotten’s snarl for good measure. With this righteous recipe, you get the singular sound of LA psychedelic rock outfit Mr. Elevator and the Brain Hotel. Notable for combining elements of jazz with the throwback psych sound and for eschewing guitar in favor of blistering organ leads, Mr. Elevator offers a refreshing take on the So Cal sound. In the live setting the band explores, and pushes outward, the limits of their unique music. Also on the bill: Cosmonauts, Burning Palms, Hip Hatchet and The Oblio's. $5-$7, 9pm Thu, 502 Bar, 502 Embassy Oaks, (210) 257-8125, — James Courtney
