Los Angeles noise poppers La Sera are staying busy! The band, fronted by the effervescent Katy Goodman, released a full-length album, Music for Listening to Music to, in March. They toured on that album, performing at the 9:30 Club in May. (Read our review of that show!)
Surely not done for the year, La Sera dropped a new extended play, Queens, via Polyvinyl Records on Sept. 30. Then on Friday, the band launched a tour with their friend Springtime Carnivore, who also has new music! (Don’t be fooled by the name; Springtime Carnivore is the winsome Greta Morgan, who has collaborated with La Sera in the past. Read our interview with Greta!)
The La Sera tour with Springtime Carnivore stops in DC at Songbyrd Music House on Thursday, Oct. 20.
The new La Sera EP contains a cover of Led Zeppelin’s “Whole Lotta Love,” which is a song they have performed live with their easygoing psychedelic flavor for a while. Listen to La Sera’s cover of “Whole Lotta Love” by Led Zeppelin on Soundcloud:
As we previously have noted, Katy and Greta also recently collaborated by covering a set of punk tunes, publishing the resulting album, Take It, It’s Yours, on Polyvinyl Records over the summer. Perhaps we will hear them tackle Iggy Pop or The Misfits or the Buzzcocks together at the show?
Rock trio Lilac Daze, hailing from Frederick, Maryland, open the show! Tickets are available online.
