Live Rock and Roll

International Pop Overthrow Los Angeles Showcase Line-Up Announced

International Pop Overthrow is putting on a great rock and roll bill tonight at The Scene in LA so if you are looking for a great rock and roll time check it out. The lineup straight from IPO main man David Bash:

8:30 Brady Harris: This captivating singer/songwriter has come to The Scene all the way from Venice! Well ok, it’s Venice, CA, but this in no way compromises his excellent tunes, which fall somewhere between John Lennon and Americana! You can hear said tunes on his CD, Lone Star, so named in honor of his Texas upbringing!

9:15 Leisure McCorkle: We’re always grateful when this gentleman makes his way to IPO (several of them!) all the way from Charlotte, North Carolina! Fans of Joe Jackson and Graham Parker will love his sturdy rock ‘n roll, as he possesses a voice so strong that he really doesn’t need a microphone!
Check out his CD, Jet Set Baby, and you’ll know what I’m talkin’ about!

10:00 Plasticsoul: Essentially a thinly veiled disguise for singer/songwriter/producer Steven Wilson. Over the past decade Steven has been performing various roles in multiple bands while compiling a large
catalogue of original, dynamic pop songs. As testement to their international appeal, Plasticsoul’s “Sunblessed Cleopatra” EP made its way into the college radio top 20 in Germany, Canada and Brazil! A lot of sound is represented with these guys, from Crowded House to Cole Porter and all points west.

10:45 Maryz Eyez: These four young modern rockers from Kalamazoo, Michigan, are starting to make a lot of noise in the industry, and for good reason, as their contemporary pop/punk sound is right and ready for today’s radio! They’re in the midst of a countrywide tour with Leisure McCorkle (see above), packing their brand new full-length CD with them!

11:30 The Pacific: A happening L.A. foursome who proudly wave the banner that Oasis used to carry, while adding their own New Millennium spin to it all. They’re busy working on their upcoming record, which promises to be a good one. Hey girls, they’re really cute, too!

Admission for the show is $5. The Scene is located at 806 East Colorado St. in Glendale, and is a 21+ club. Their phone is 818 241-7029, and their website is
