Speaking of steam punk… The Cassettes

158639996_l.jpgSean mentioned steam punk here so I figured I’ll let you all know when the best steam punk band I know is coming to LA…

The Cassettes are heading out on a good old fashion American tour in two days and they’ll be playing four shows in Los Angeles. This band is the real deal, they’ll be busking on the street in some cities and selling Cassettes tea at their merch booth! When was the last time you heard of a band doing that?

08 Mar 2007 The Echo – Los Angeles, California w/ Spindrift, Moon Upstairs and Crooked Cowboys (18+)
09 Mar 2007 El Cid – Los Angeles, California
10 Mar 2007 Hotel Cafe – Los Angeles, California
11 Mar 2007 The Tangier – Los Angeles, California

If you haven’t checked them out yet, download the two tracks after the jump. You can get their new cd ‘Neath The Pale Moon (which is out on MY label, Buddyhead) from your local record store or from one of the online services below. You might wanna also pick up the reissue (with bonus tracks) of their second record O’er The Mountain which features members of Dead Meadow as the backing band. The singer of The Cassettes, Shelby, produced their first two records. But the DM dudes aren’t in the band anymore, it’s a full new and improved lineup now… for more on The Cassettes visit their myspace page @ http://myspace.com/thecassettes, their website @ http://www.thecassettes.com/ and Wikipedia page @ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Cassettes.
