SoCal favorites (and B3 favorites) Cayucas and Barsuk Records band Hibou (all great) pair up for a show at the El Rey Theater in Los Angeles this Friday, August 14. Secretly Canadian’s Cayucas released sophomore LP Dancing at the Blue Lagoon in June (which we liked) and play a Southern California-inflected version of anthemic indie pop. Hibou, the new project of former Craft Spells drummer Peter Michel, will a release a self-titled debut album next month from which the shoegaze-y kaleidoscope of reverb-drenched guitar sounds of “Dissolve” we’re rather into. We’re stoked to give away two passes to Friday night’s show, to enter email us here by Noon Pacific on Wednesday August 12th. Further details including ticket info for the gig can be found on the El Rey’s website.
