Palm Springs, CA

In the 1950s, when our little palm city was a sapling, the local rotary club produced this talky, top-full of kitsch. It’s a trip back to a more complicated time, when some people didn’t know the world was so simple: feed each other’s souls and we’ll all be more energetic and also we’ll simultaneously be more peaceful.

They have the best band name to say out loud. Try it — Tashaki Miyaki, Tashaki Miyaki, Tashaki Miyaki. Tashaki Miyaki is a band from Los Angeles, born of an impromptu late-night jam session which led to an impromptu recording session which led to an impromptu band. A few EPs worth of reverb-soaked hazy dream pop later (anchored with band member Rocky’s — not his real name, in yet another mysteriously compelling and ultimately successful ploy for our attention— weightier contributions on the guitar), and Tashaki Miyaki is well on its way to international indie-pop acclaim. But first, a pit stop at Ace Hotel & Swim Club — 8pm tonight, in the Amigo Room. Once more ——— Tashaki Miyaki.
