Cisco Adler and The Pigeons to Play The Roxy Theatre

Cisco Adler and his new band, The Pigeons, will be performing live at The Roxy on November 16. They will deliver their California pop and rock twist, full of big hooks and sing-a-long melodies, to an all-ages crowd with friends The Street Drum Corps.

With tracks varying from the upbeat, horn-accompanied “Body Language,” to the stripped down, acoustic “Maybe Never,” there’s a song for everyone.

Cisco Adler and the Pigeons dropped on the scene at the Sunset Strip Music Festival on August 28 to rave reviews. “[Cisco Adler] provided exactly what we’ve come to expect of the artist: catchy, feel-good grooves that can’t be confined to one genre,” Kristin Houser of LA Music Blog said of the band’s energetic performance.

Chris Young The Rapper Set to Release Single

1991_v5Lyrical dynamo Chris Young the Rapper releases his first single, “Stoned” via the World Wide Web. This comes 10 days before the release of his highly anticipated mixtape, The 1991 EP.

“The record is a ode to the golden era of hip hop. When beats had soul and the rhymes meant something,” said Cisco Adler, who produced the set of songs and heads up Young’s label Bananabeat Records.

“Stoned,” returns the listener to the glory days of hip-hop. Del The Funky Homosapien, innovator and legend, is featured on the track in classic form. Del, who most recently worked with the likes of powerhouse producer Dan “The Automator” Nakamura and the alternative hip-hop group, Gorillaz, served as a huge inspiration to Young for 1991.
