To celebrate the release of Neon Future II, Aoki, in conjunction with Mayor Eric Garcetti and the City of Los Angeles, has announced LAoki, a free concert powered by Scion to thank his fans and the city he loves, happening on Saturday, May 16 in the heart of downtown. This legendary event will take place per a street closure on Broadway between 4rd and 6th Streets, allowing fans the opportunity to experience a once in a life time concert by Aoki on release week of Neon Future II , set against the backdrop of the downtown Los Angeles skyline. Tickets can be obtained today by signing up for information regarding the Mayor’s Volunteer Corps at http://smarturl.it/LAokiShow.
Says Aoki, a native Angeleno,
“My whole career was built in Los Angeles, so it only made sense to do the biggest show of my life on the streets of downtown, just blocks from my label Dim Mak’s homebase. Making it a free show is my thank you to the city that’s given me so much, but I also felt it was important to encourage others to give back as well. To get a ticket, all you have to do is sign up for more information on Mayor Eric Garcetti’s Volunteer Corps. Hopefully my fans will learn about something they can do to help build a better city. Los Angeles is my heart. I love this city.”
Straight edge hardcore band XTRMST, featuring AFI lead vocalist Davey Havok and guitarist Jade Puget, have released the first music video for “Conformist”. Watch it here.
The song is off their self-titled debut album, out November 17th via Steve Aoki’s (DJ/producer and former This Machine Kills member) Dim Mak Records. Puget produced and mixed the record at his home studio and at The Treehouse in Los Angeles, CA.
Havok commented on the band:
“Jade and I have been talking about starting a straight edge hardcore band for years. We started writing and recording in early 2012 and chose the name XTRMST because it expresses the messages represented on the record. The straight edge movement is not one of moderation. It’s based in undeniable objective truths.”
“The straight edge philosophy is something that Davey and I gravitated towards at a young age, drawn by concepts and ideals that seem almost foreign in modern society,” says Puget. “Like much of the other subcultures we were a part of growing up, it put us at odds with 99% of the people around us, which was something we embraced. Being sXe for over 20 years and being musicians, it seemed natural that this crucial ideology would find a musical expression.”
“XTRMST” track listing:
01. Words For the Unwanted
03. Social Deathplay
08. The Breed
10. The Way
11. Swallow Your God
12. Dirty Nails
