A FMLY bike ride this Saturday and an exclusive mix from Truman Peyote
Attention all fixed gear fiends: FMLY, the bi-coastal art collective responsible for events such as 2009's epic Beach Dazed, is returning to the streets on Saturday. This means that automobile drivers should steer clear of a wild pack of bicycling music obsessives, periodically stopping to enjoy performances from Truman Peyote, Manhattan Murder Mystery, Blackbird Blackbird, So Many Wizards, and Power Axe.
In the words of the clan:
For those of you new to the ride, don’t be afraid. We are super friendly and your beach cruiser and mountain bike are more than welcome. We keep a moderate pace and have people at the back to help you in case you get dropped. We will be riding around all of Saturday night reinventing our urban surroundings through music of all genres, dancing and hanging. This is a totally different way of seeing the city and we can hang out as well! Don’t be afraid to dress up in a silly costume or what have you. All are welcome as long as you stay smart and don’t make everyone super uncomfortable.
The meet-up takes place at 7:30 p.m. at Media Park at Robertson and Venice, and the ride itself is slated to begin shortly after 8 p.m. In honor of the event, Truman Peyote has made an exclusive mix for Pop & Hiss, filled with everything from art pop to classic '70s L.A. stadium rock to Canadian indie rock. Unlike its namesake, the mix won't leave you disoriented for a half a day, but it's nonetheless been known to aid and abet late-night visions.
