cults

CULTS AT HOUSE OF BLUES, LA
WHEN: Saturday, December 21 at 7:30pm
WHERE: 8430 West Sunset Boulevard, West Hollywood, CA 90069
WHAT: NYC-by-way-of-San Diego duo Cults are making their way home and bringing their sunny, synth-pop with them from the east coast back to where it belongs. Band members Brian Oblivion and Madeline Follin’s whole surf-pop vibe brings about longings of summer, which they probably desperately need in New York this time of year, but while the two are home are the holidays, we could use our own dosage of summer, sun-kissed tuneage. | more info

WHERE: 6126 Hollywood Boulevard, Hollywood, CA 90028
WHAT: Acrobats, fire dancers, and snake charmers are just some of the many oddities you may find at a Lucent Dossier Experience show. You may have gotten a taste of this highly theatrical troupe at the Do Lab’s stage at Coachella, but this Saturday, head to the Fonda for the full experience, where steampunk meets electronica meets trapeze for a highly interactive and surreal performance. | more info
