As the press, we try not to play favorites, but L.A.’s Shiloe are one of our favorite local bands. They’re performing two nights in Los Angeles, one at our Halloween party @ The CWG Mansion (see front of page for address and directions) and one @ the Troubador the following night.
Shiloe’s performance at our Halloween party will be streamed live on the internet via Ustream.com (for those of you not in L.A.)
The following night, Shiloe are set to open for Girl in a Coma atthe Troubadour, one of Hollywood’s most prestigious clubs, on Sunday, November1st.
Shiloe, who are currently at work on their debut full-lengthto be released in early 2010, have been making waves with their new single,”By the Daggers in Your Eyes.” The song, which combines a drivingbeat and pulsing distorted bass line with instantly memorable lyrics and vocalmelodies, has been described as “the ideal anthem for the edgiest movieJohn Hughes never made.” The track entered the Triple A SubModern radiocharts at #11 – the highest debut for any self-released single that week – andcontinued in the Top 25 for several subsequent weeks. Prominent localsupporters include KROQ’s Kat Corbett and KCRW’s Nic Harcourt. Shiloe was alsorecently selected as the Deli Magazine’s “Band of the Month” in anonline reader’s poll.
