Lucky Valentine Teams Up With 8mm For US Live Debut
Australian-based Lucky Valentine will be making his U.S. debut performing tracks from his debut album, "King Of The Kerb", which is attracting major label attention.
Produced by Ben Rosen (Marilyn Manson, Unwritten Law, 8mm), the album is a fresh blend of infectious electronica, pop and rock with insane beats - 12 tracks of everything from street anthems, to angst-ridden love rants, to blush-worthy coming-of-age eargasms that speak to underdogs with big plans everywhere.
Known for his powerfully charged performances, 24-year-old Lucky has been described as a cross between Katy Perry with Billy Joe Armstrong and a new-found Suicide Boy.
Represented by founding GARBAGE manager Shannon O'Shea, she says, "Lucky wing-spans multiple formats and as well as being extremely and uniquely visual. He slots into an untapped market that is both immediate and exciting."
On stage at 7pm.
It will be the first industry showcase for the LA Times Buzz Band, 8mm. They were founded by super-producer / mixer Sean Beavan (NIN, Marilyn Manson, No Doubt, Envy On The Coast) and his wife, Juliette, who has been described as a cross between Jessica Rabbit and Billie Holiday. Known for their steamy performances, they have toured internationally to critical acclaim.
Meanwhile, Juliette was tapped to model for the award winning celebrity vintage line, Stop Staring! as they wrote new material between Sean's production and mixing work with Envy On The Coast and Marilyn Manson. As they seek a home for their next album, they will debut new material on the 16th.
On-stage at 8pm.
