We ran into Nika Roza Danilova (Zola Jesus) and found her to be as sweet as she is talented. She’ll be performing in LA for the first time in quite a spell at the downtown Geffen Contemporary at MOCA on August 17 (with Active Child and a DJ set by Ariel Pink) as part of the ‘Play MOCA’ free music and art series.
The string of Friday shows in August kicked off this past week with another of my favorite LA chanteuses Io Echo, and label-mates Salem. The series (curated by Iamsound and Io Echo) will conclude with Cults and Lord Huron August 24th. The events are free, but you need to get a ticket here.
