Zack de la Rocha's One Day As a Lion will play two shows this weekend

July 12, 2010 |  4:50 pm

When I interviewed vocalist/provocateur Zack de la Rocha about his new project, One Day as a Lion, in 2008, he promised that the duo would soon bring its incendiary drum-and-buzz sound to the fans, live in concert. For Zack, apparently, "soon" is a relative term. One Day as a Lion just announced its first live dates ever -- taking place this weekend at two undisclosed locations.

Saturday, de la Rocha and drummer Jon Theodore will appear in Pomona; the next day brings a Los Angeles date. Joining the pair will be Joey Karam, keyboardist for the Locust. Maybe he'll wear his usual stage camo. Masked or fully exposed, this band can be counted on to raise an unholy racket.

Tickets for the two shows will be sold starting at noon Wednesday, online and at two solid-ground locations: Origami Vinyl in Echo Park and the Glasshouse Record Store in Pomona. (Hm, might that latter location point to where Saturday's show will take place? Just guessin'.) Check out announcement for more information. 

In the meantime, read my review of the One Day as a Lion EP here and my chat with De la Rocha here.  I'll be there, fist in air, for the L.A. show!
