Event Preview: Bass Drum of Death & Hanni El Khatib Play Casbah Next WEDNESDAY

Event Preview
Bass Drum of Death
& Hanni El Khatib
Casbah San Diego, CA
Wednesday, October 23rd 2013.

   Bass Drum of Death survived their experience over at Fat Possum and managed to get picked up by Innovative Leisure for their recent LP, eponymously titled Bass Drum of Death, which came out in July of this year.  The 1st LP, GB City came out in April of 2011, so it is fair to say that the Fat Possum experience did not leave them in prime time position for the second LP.  Over at Last FM it's a slow and steady slog towards one million plays- currently at 700k and 1500 a week.  I have a huge place in my heart for bands that fucking survive having their first record come out and not make money for whatever label signed them.  There is nothing that impresses me more then a band having LP1 come out on a label like Fat Possum and surviving negative reviews etc.  I recommend you check out this show, both for Bass Drum and headliner Hanni  El Khatib, who has also managed to build a career in the indie verse outside the charmed circle of Pitchfork approval.
