Love Grenades NYC debut at CMJ October 22, 23, 24, 2009
Sam Sparro's protégés the Love Grenades are everywhere: ENTOURAGE, CHUCK, KXLU, Lobster Fest, Sunset Junction, European festivals, Los Angeles and this October, CMJ and New York City.
Three confirmed shows at the CMJ festival will introduce the city that never sleeps to the all night dance rock music of Love Grenades. With more appearances, performances and DJ sets in the process of being set up, Love Grenades plan on taking New York by storm.
"Next to Paris, New York is my favorite city outside my hometown of Los Angeles. To get a chance to play a place that cultivated the sounds of underground No Wave and Punk in the late 70s and early 80s is like a dream come true. Its gonna be hard to drag me back home!" says Elizabeth Wight, front-woman and mastermind of Love Grenades.
Playful, sexy, and eminently danceable, Love Grenades are a new, unifying force in independent music - in its most literal interpretation.
The brainchild of mastermind Elizabeth Wight, Love Grenades is the unlikely beat-driven collision of electro-pop, Italo disco and punk that's winning over Los Angeles audiences. With a new EP on the scene this fall on Modus Vivendi Music, Love Grenades will steal your heart.
