Los Angeles rockers The Linda Lindas announced they will be performing a free in-store performance at Amoeba Music in Hollywood on July 27 at 4 p.m. The young and boisterous group of girls bring their tongue-in-cheek lyrics, sharp minds and buoyant personalities to the famed music store’s longstanding in-store live music series.
As an added bonus, starting July 15, Amoeba is giving away a free limited edition commemorative poster and guaranteed admission to the show with in-store purchase of The Linda Linda’s debut album Growing Up. Posters and show admission with purchase are redeemable up to two times per customer and only while supplies last. Space for the free performance is limited.
The Linda Lindas will also perform Oct. 6 at the Hollywood Bowl alongside Japanese Breakfast in support of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and will be playing a set at the When We Were Young Festival in Las Vegas taking place Oct. 22, 23 and 29 — the band themselves will be playing Oct. 22 and 29.
Their debut album, Growing Up, released earlier this year, is a fast-paced, attitude rich collection of angsty coming of age songs — while the album reflects their youth in subject matter, the band’s skills as songwriters and musicians is well beyond their years.
Growing Up captures a unique time in a girl’s or young woman’s life, especially if you’re a gal who likes to walk off the beaten path. Featured tracks on the album include “Nino,” a song about band member Bela Salazar’s badass cat, the confrontational “Oh” and the incendiary track “Racist, Sexist Boy,” a song that garnered a lot of attention when the band performed it as part of their set for Tiny Desk’s (Home) Concert series.
Since their debut album drop, The Linda Lindas have also released a new music video for their song “Why,” a punk-infused anthem. The music video pays tribute to Penelope Spheeris‘ 1981 documentary about L.A. punk, “The Decline of Western Civilization,” and the animated film “Spirited Away” (one of the group’s favorite Hayao Miyazaki films).
With plenty of hot licks in their catalog, The Linda Lindas are sure to bring an upbeat and vivacious energy to their Amoeba set.
