PLAG PRESENTS:

BROOKLYN INDIE ARTISTS JOIN L.A. BASED VAVÁ 
FOR SHOW AT HOTEL CAFE

Singer/Songwriters Maria Neckam and Lucia “Loosh” Stavros tour the West Coast from LA to Vancouver, joining forces with L.A.’s guitar whiz VAVÁ for a show May 25th 10pm at Hotel Cafe. The show is being presented by PLAG Presents, an LA-based collective that works to elevate the voices of women and nonbinary people in the arts.

VAVÁ is Vanessa Wheeler, formerly of the band LeoLeo. Since gaining attention from her posts on instagram, she has opened for break-out artist like Lauren Ruth Ward, and has toured nationally with The Dear Hunter and The Family Crest (winter, 2017.) Her music is made up of subconscious micro-references to Vanessa’s major influences (Brazilian, Black American, pop, rock, and progressive musical genres), which are then filtered through her guitaristic, composer/songwriter brain. Often difficult to categorize, her music has been called “genre smashing” and “jaw-dropping,” (Buzzlands LA), and “the offspring of musical genes taken from Sia, Florence, and St. Vincent (Blurred Culture.) vavamusique.com

Maria Neckam is an Austrian-born, Brooklyn-based singer and songwriter, who has made a name for herself as a highly unique and versatile voice. She has been praised by the press -- from the New York Times to NPR's "A Blog Supreme," and Le Monde in France -- as a "trailblazer," and "natural wonder." Maria has released three well received albums under her own name and is preparing the release of her fourth, produced by Jon Cowherd (Brian Blade & the Fellowship) and Steve Wall (Lucius, Meshell Ndegéocello). Her songs fall into the realm of indie pop - with an alternative edge, reminiscent of such artists as Feist, Regina Spektor and Ani DiFranco. marianeckam.com

Loosh describes her brand of music as, “progressive rock stylings and deep grooves with uncharted harmonic movement on harp,” Delivering distinctly feminist and political themes, Loosh performs what she calls “superBitch rock,” with searing wide-range vocals. Loosh performs all original material including selections from the debut album scheduled for release in 2018 by her five-piece band Green and Glass. A former Fulbright Scholar for music studies in Paris, Stavros has performed internationally in distinguished venues such as Carnegie Hall, the Apollo Theater, and The Universität der Künste in Berlin. looshmusic.com

:: Maiah Manser:: 

Noir-Pop songstress, Maiah Manser dissolves differences and builds bridges between the worlds of automation and nature. The grit and the raw in lyrics combined with her hauntingly powerful vocals, drive together to create a chilling sensation that is both concrete and abstract, in sound and in concept.

Manser discovered her love of music at the age of four while attending preschool in Bend, Oregon where she was raised by her grandmother and single mother, who had escaped her father. With a fierce independence that stems from the feminine energy she was surrounded by, Manser taught herself to play the piano and violin and eventually fled Oregon for Cornish College of the Arts. As a student, she met Mary Lambert; that chance meeting opened the door for an opportunity to tour with Lambert as a backing vocalist, opening for artists like Sam Smith, Ariana Grande and Pharrell Williams. At 20 years old she started her professional career as a solo artist.

In 2016, Manser got her taste of the festival life, shining on both the main stage of Capitol Hill Block Party and on the Mural Stage at Bumbershoot Music Festival alongside artists like Bishop Briggs, CHVRCHES, Odesza, and Crystal Castles.

:: Annachristie Sapphire:: 

Currently living in the beautiful small village of Joshua Tree, CA. The death place of Graham Parsons and birth place of many artistic visions! Just a couple hours away from Los Angeles, Annachristie has been writing and recording her newest EP "Sibling Rivalry" while soaking up the mountain views.

:: Hayley and the Crushers

You went to the beach to get a tan but were rudely interrupted by a gaggle of leather-clad beasts feasting on beer and ho-hos under the pier. Welcome to THE CRUSHERVERSE!  

Razorcake Magazine digs the San Luis Obispo, CA trio's latest release, "JEWEL CASE:" "These are syrupy sweet surf pop punk songs covering hooking up in the backseat, mermaids, gltter and young love." Pork Magazine gives a sweaty thumbs up: "punchy, punky young oldies sound reminecent of the Go-Gos .... with a sound that says drive-in movies, bubblegum, lazy beach days, and mild teenage bad behavior."

PLAG Workshop #6: The Business of Radio

22713200_1928347447419529_2990026898750446955_o.jpg

Regardless of what The Buggles may think, radio play and touring are still the two main market drivers and indicators of success in the American music industry. This month, we will be hosting women from both the station and the promotion side of the radio business. They're some of the best out there and we're honored to have them.

November 11 || Doors at 12:30pm || The Hi Hat || FREE

Moderator: Katrina Bleckley (Play Like A Girl)
Panelists (bios below): 
:: Kat Corbett (The World Famous KROQ)
:: Tobi Lynn (ALT987FM / KCRW)
:: Melissa Maxx (955KLOS)
:: Edie Lundeen (CO5 Music)
:: Chia Chiapetta (WestCoastChia Promotion)

RSVP here: https://goo.gl/qK1X4Z
Seating is first come, first served

Tobi Lynn: Tobi Lynn is currently an on-air host and music curator for ALT987fm and KCRW in Los Angeles. More specifically, she curates and hosts ALT's Music Discovery Show and LA-centric show called Close To Home every Sunday from 8-10p PT. Formerly, in 2001 she built the music library from scratch for the college/indie channel called XMU on XM Satellite Radio in DC. She selected and programmed the music on XMU and hosted a daily indie music mid-day show for the 8 years of XM's existence prior to the satellite merger. She's originally from Indianapolis, Indiana and began her radio career in college at DePauw University's WGRE in Greencastle, Indiana. Her first legit, paying radio gig was hosting an afternoon talk show called Tobi Talk on WLBK in DeKalb, Illinois - but after three years in the cornfields she packed up her Geo Metro and moved to LA for the first time. She was a part-time on-air host at Y107fm and curated and hosted a daily indie music morning show for the groundbreaking Soundbreak.com during the dotcom heyday. 

Melissa Maxx: Once upon a time, in a far away land filled with strip malls and big hair, there lived a little girl. The land was called “Longuyland” and the little girl was known as “Missy.” Missy dreamed she would one day grow up and become a famous drummer in a rock band (like a female Keith Moon, only alive and without a drug problem). However, when Missy started school she met an evil, calorically challenged, sexist pig music teacher, who told her drums were for boys, and forced her to play the clarinet and join chorus. With a lip full of splinters and a broken heart, Missy practiced the clarinet and sang.

Until one day, in an ugly cafeteria incident, which she is still in therapy for, it was brought to Missy’s attention that she couldn’t carry a tune, and the clarinet case she carried was “geeky.” Dejected, rejected, and with pieces of cheese sticks in her pig-tailed hair she wondered, “How, oh how, will I ever be on the radio and get backstage at concerts if I’m not in a band?”

Then one day a fairy godmother appeared, disguised as the head of the school audio/visual squad, and told Missy there was an opening for a “morning announcement” person. The person who took this job would be in charge of making important announcements, like assemblies, plus get out of homeroom. Missy knew, deep down, this was her destiny. After a few more years of microphone practice, thanks to a drive through window at a local quality fast food establishment, which did not serve cheese sticks, Melissa Maxx was born.

(Fast Forward to a time when schools no longer served cheese sticks because they are bad for you.) After studying TV/ Radio broadcasting in college and several jobs in radio Markets with 90 or 91 listeners. Melissa Maxx moved to Boston and got her first major market job at WBCN where she stayed for 10 years. She then moved to Los Angeles and was the executive producer, writer and VJ for the first made for mobile rock video channel. Melissa Maxx now finds herself at the legendary KLOS and pinches herself daily (pinches-not gooses) that she gets to work with some of the most legendary air personalities in the country! Addendum. These days Melissa prefers string cheese to cheese sticks.

Edie Lundeen: Over 20 years of working in radio promotion and marketing at the following companies: Atlantic, Virgin, Lava, Capitol, Sony RED Distribution, Beggars Group and Cult. A couple years ago, launched my own promotion and marketing company, Black Dog Music Marketing and soon partnered with CO5 Music that became a brand under their umbrella. After a few shifts internally at CO5, I’m now a national director there and still hold my Black Dog brand as well.  www.co5music.com

A couple years ago, CO5 launched The Gathering in Louisville, KY that is a music showcase platform for Alternative music. The attendees that come are Alternative radio programers, music supervisors, and bloggers. www.thegatheringmusic.com

I recently branched out to artist management. My first client is No Small Children, an all female pop-punk trio based here in Los Angeles. They are three school teachers by day and rockers by night! Their songs have been featured in the recent remake of Ghostbusters and the Drew Barrymore show, Santa Clarita Diet.  www.nosmallchildren.com

Chia Chiapetta: Chia grew up in Chicago and graduated from Arizona State University with a degree in broadcast journalism. From college, she moved to LA and spent over 20 years in radio promotion at Mercury Records, Columbia Records, and the Island Def Jam Music Group, where she served as Senior Vice President Promotion, All Rock Formats. In June of 2017, she branched out to start her own promotion, marketing, and consulting company called WestCoastChia Promotion.

Chia currently lives in Hollywood with her 3 year old daughter, Juliette.

:: True Violet:: 

All girl American indie folk band founded in Los Angeles, California by sisters Alayna & Kayla Miller, and Jessie Covets.

LISTEN ---> http://www.truevioletmusic.com/

:: TwoLips:: 

Alternative R&B for mixed kids from mixed kids. 

LISTEN ---> https://soundcloud.com/twolipsmusic

:: Cusi Coyllur

Cusi Coyllur, (coo-see coy-your), an Inca princess name, is the dark, experimental solo project of pianist, singer and mental health advocate, Shannen Roberts. “Woke Up From a Lazy Dream” music video shows the hazy, mind-altered world she, her friends and partner at the time struggled to leave and depicts her panic attacks.

“It never feels like I’m in control of my body or my thoughts when I have a panic attack and it’s as if someone else has entered my body and is forcing it to shake, hyperventilate and scream,” said Shannen.

When writing the song, she remembered when her friends at a music school in high school revealed they had tried to commit suicide or were depressed and took drugs to cope. It was a scary realization that she was overwhelmingly not alone at the time in how she felt and dealt with it. “Bipolar Lovers in Love,” her upcoming EP, expresses the extreme polarities of her life, past destructive relationships and is a tribute to her healing journey thus far.

PITCH PERFECT: NAVIGATING THE WORLD OF PRESS AND PUBLICITY

A few good pieces of press can be the key to landing an opening slot on a tour, grabbing an A&R rep's attention, or bringing in new fans you may never have reached otherwise. Getting those first write-ups under your belt can sometimes seem impossible.

For this month's PLAG Workshop, moderated by Uproxx Music's Caitlin White, we have brought in a panel of female music writers and publicists to demystify the the press process.

PLAG PRESENTS at Harvard & Stone

THURSDAY, August 31st

9PM


:: Doctrin :: 

A Melbournian goth amidst the Los Angeles sun, Doctrin is the moniker of porcelain Australian, Dolly Denko. Relocating to California as an artist and producer, a multi-instrumentalist and songwriter, Denko brings it all together in the studio under her own intricate compositions to create the powerfully capricious breeze of Doctrin. 

Bringing a lustful presence to the stage alongside her live band, Doctrin delivers a powerfully honest performance during such nights; with a range of layering and effects, Denko herself wails in both vocals and grungy guitar riffs that are reminiscent of the 90’s alternative anthems. 

LISTEN ---> https://www.youtube.com/user/DoctrinVEVO

:: The Pinks:: 

L.A. based retro punk women

LISTEN ---> https://the-pinks.bandcamp.com/releases

:: Sugar Rum Tantrum

Sugar Rum Tantrum premieres as the Los Angeles folk-mischief-rambunction helmed by accordionist-songwriter Melinda West (Sugar Rum). A decade ago, Sugar Rum began her pursuits as a rock cabaret-inclined street performer. Eventually, the band stumbled down the rabbit hole of songwriting, incorporating tango, gypsy folk, stride, and blues into a tasty concoction. This four-piece spook folk band, frequently known to accompany the occasional fire performance or interpretive dancer, is making its debut with an EP release expected in October 2016.

:: PLEXXAGLASS :: 

PLEXXAGLASS is a crisp salad of sounds ranging from alternative pop to indie folk to electronic. Lead by singer-songwriter Alexa Joan Rae, the key to finding the unique sound for PLEXXAGLASS was working with Kevin Billingslea of The Halo Studio in Portland, Maine.

The release of their single 'Lament en Route' (prod. by Kevin Billingslea) received rave feedback from indie bloggers and propelled the project's momentum towards success. Her follow-up, ‘Liar’, is a conversation about mental health. The song chronicles Joan Rae’s own struggles with depression and anxiety; the feeling of needing to put on a mask to function in a demanding society.

Throughout 2016, PLEXXAGLASS has performed in nationally known venues such as The Knitting Factory (Brooklyn), The Mint, Be Here Now, Cake Shop, and The Troubadour. 
The project has recently expanded to a 4 piece: Alexa on Vocals/Keys, Lauren Stockner (Cruel Youth) on Bass, Ken Oak on Cello (Meg Myers band), and Sarah Luffred on Drums. 

PLEXXAGLASS has been featured on IMPOSE Magazine, The Spill (Canada), ‘WorldArts’ as their February ’Spotlight Artist’, Idobi Radio , ‘Indiemono’ Spotify Playlist of over 30K followers, UK Indie Music Blogs ‘Where the Horn Blow’ and ‘A&R Factory', ‘Wolf in a Suit’ Indie Music Blog, Canada’s ‘Ohestee’ Indie Music Blog, and Poland’s ‘Zapetlone’ blog.
