Little Boots, NewVillager, SBTRKT play Mondrian sessions
The local indie label IAMSOUND has had some luck in getting hipsters to go west of La Brea for its Mondrian Sessions, a series of poolside concerts at the West Hollywood hotel featuring rising acts such as Lykke Li, Feist, Cults and others. Now, they've set a fall lineup with a few adventurous electronica acts.
The electropop siren Little Boots, an unexpected smash at Coachella 2010, leads off this weekend acoustically on Friday, followed by the San Francisco-based experimental art-rock ensemble NewVillager on Oct. 20 and the U.K. beat-music producer SBTRKT on Oct. 24. Even though it's not quite pool weather anymore, it's an excellent stand-by-a-pool-and-watch-bands season right now.
