Los Angeles based Indie Rock band Ned and the Dirt is a band that you soak up. They don't wash over you, they happen to you. Listen to them; you'll want to dance, you'll want to cry, you'll want to start feeling everything more profoundly, and it's this warp speed through emotions that makes Ned and the Dirt special - it's the human experience. Ned's roots can be found in his preacher's tongue and garage-party swagger, but it's the Dirt's grit that gives their music a grip on your ears. Their live performances drip with honesty (and sweat) so go get up close if you're ready to feel, but don't worry, you won't be alone. You'll be flying through with everyone else.
A city full of transplants, and yet all four members of Niantic are from the Los Angeles area. We grew up right here, in the thick of it, watching people and ideas and flavors of the month come and go. So we transplanted styles. The goal is impossible -- a sonic architecture, a diversity of borrowing, from all periods and approaches to great music. Different approaches to technical mastery -- or sometimes lack thereof. A relentless focus on arranging, musicianship, and performance. Every song tells a story, has words and melodies to get lost in. On stage you won't want to look away. On record hopefully it'll be like anything good you put on -- you'll call your friends in from the other room and say "you've gotta hear this". What does the name mean?? It's an Indian tribe from Connecticut. Ryan found it on a street sign in San Diego and it's a pretty name. You can pronounce it with a hard I if you want to. We're probably concentrating on not sucking and not correcting your language. But if you do find yourself intrigued, bring your friends, come see us live.
