What with all the hawk updates on this site lately, a “Dance Under The Stars” event email from Caltech caught my eye. There is a local alternative country band called I See Hawks In L.A. and they are playing on Friday night at Caltech, outside Beckman auditorium on the mall. The event is free and you are invited to bring blankets and chairs and picnic dinners and dance the night away.
Based on the following review, it seems quite apropos to hold the event at a place where portals and epic scales are studied:
“These freewheeling lords of California psych country approach their music as if it were a portal, an unseen threshold that, once crossed, promises a wholly unpredictable experience. The Hawks’ singular style operates on an epic scale, with a sound as much traditional hillbilly as it is accelerated lysergic-rock spontaneity.” – Jonny Whiteside, L.A. Weekly
