July 1-4: The Holloys at the Black Cat, Hopmonk Tavern, Ravenous and Street Scene


Ignore their fabricated story about being from a parallel dimension called Lake Land. The Holloys, from Los Angeles, sound like they’re everywhere at once, combining sounds of German prog-rock, Nigerian afro-beat, London trance and Detroit soul. Loosely affiliated with the noise scene surrounding downtown L.A. venue the Smell, the Holloys experiment with drones and textures while reaching their dual drum sets ever further toward the brass ring of pop structure on their latest album, No Where Now Here. It’s a peyote-driven sound that’s brought them to play the All Tomorrow’s Parties festival in the U.K. and to record a split 7-inch with Cambodian pop machine Dengue Fever. They hit Sonoma County with four shows this weekend, at the Black Cat in Penngrove (July 1), Hopmonk Tavern in Sebastopol (July 2), Ravenous in Healdsburg (July 3) and Street Scene in Healdsburg (July 4). www.holloys.com.
