ROBERT DELONG & MYSTERY SKULLS

WHEN: Friday, January 31
WHERE: El Rey Theatre | 5515 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90036
WHAT: Robert Delong made a splash on the music festival circuit last year producing what seems like a one-man-dance-party all from a live set up of up to 20 instruments, a hacked Wii control, and even a flight simulator joystick mapped to midi controllers and gyros. Incorporating a diverse range of sounds, Delong throws in everything from Moombahton to House. Fellow dance music machine Mystery Skulls accompanies Delong Friday night at the El Rey. | more

WHAT: Stones Throw Records signees Myron & E grace the Mint’s stage next week, bringing to Los Angeles their take on a Motown, retro-soul revival.

They eventually released a slew of funk 45s of their own that landed them the Stones Throw signing. Label founder Peanut Butter Wolf will also be making an appearance at the Mint, spinning choice jams from his two-ton vinyl collection. | more
