Zipper Club, out of Los Angeles, gave the crowd flowing in to witness The Sounds at the 9:30 Club last Monday a bright and hopeful look at what’s to come.
The Sounds return to the 9:30 Club on November 28th bringing along two openers!
One opener you’ll definitely want to catch is Zipper Club. They are a new band out of Los Angeles made up of Mason James (guitar) of Cerebral Ballzy, Damar Davis (drums) and fronted by musician and model Lissy Trullie.
Their sound is as infectious as The Sounds, where Lissy’s voice and the synth-laden beats make a perfect fit as an opener.
The first single, “Going the Distance”, has done well on Billboard’s Alternative Songs Chart. It is instantly danceable and a song you will put on repeat until your music delivery system breaks down.
They are working on their debut album with producer James Iha (Smashing Pumpkins), so be on the look out.
We know you can’t wait to catch The Sounds perform live, but now make sure you get to the 9:30 Club with enough time to witness Zipper Club. Good exercise after the long Thanksgiving weekend.
Tickets are available and can be found here.
Zipper Club (Opening for The Sounds)
w/ My Jeruselem
Monday, November 28
Ten years ago, the undeniable album of the year was Dying to Say This to You by The Sounds.
It was the second album from the Swedish quintet, and it blasted a whole in the existential dance floors of our lives with its unabashed new wave power. And for a while, lead singer Maja Ivarsson was the It Girl and everything was good – that hair! that voice! that attitude! those high kicks! (Hey, she’s got a Modesty Blaise tattoo, you know!) Being Swedish never looked so good. (…and that’s saying something — being Swedish always looked good, right?)
The Sounds will tour to mark the 10th anniversary of Dying to Say This to You, and they will stop at the 9:30 Club on Monday, Nov. 28 as part of that tour.
Need I ask? Watch the official music video for “Tony the Beat” by The Sounds (guest starring Steve Aoki!) on YouTube:
Here at Parklife DC, we also are big admirers of keyboardist/ guitarist/ songwriter/ wunderkind Jesper Anderberg, who I had the pleasure of interviewing in 2013 when The Sounds last toured the United States. (Read that interview at We Love DC!)
“We realized earlier this year that it was 10 years ago that we released our album Dying to Say This to You and embarked on a journey that took us on tour around the world for almost two years straight,” said the band in a statement to fans. “This was a magical time in our lives and we shared it with so many of you. Now we like you have gotten a little older, some have gotten married, had children, and it has been many years since we’ve hit the road.”
The tour launches Nov. 15 in Salt Lake City, and it visits the 9:30 Club on Nov. 28. Zipper Club and My Jerusalem are along for support. It’s going to be amaaaaazing! Tickets are available online!
