If you’re in Los Angeles this weekend, you may well want to pop out to S. Broadway for some nights of dark pop at The Globe and The Tower Theatres on Friday and Saturday. That’s where you’ll find the Cloak and Dagger Festival – Dusk Till Dawn, featuring headliners The Jesus And Mary Chain, KMFDM, She Wants Revenge, Poptone, TR/ST, Com Truise, The Soft Moon, HEALTH, Cold Cave, and many more.
She Wants Revenge co-founded Cloak and Dagger and recruited many of their fellows to join the lineup. Quite a few of these bands have been touring lately, with KMFDM and ohGr sharing a bill, Poptone reminding us how great were Love and Rockets, Com Truise going “Black Mirror” on us, and Drab Majesty conquering the night.
Big gun The Jesus and Mary Chain released their first studio album in 19 years back in March with Damage and Joy via Artificial Plastic Records. The Scots have released a few singles and a couple of videos, including most recently “Mood Rider,” from the album.
