Californian quartet are back to play the legendary 100 Club following the release of their new EP 'My Type'
Saint Motel is an American four piece band from Los Angeles, whose music has been described as everything from "dream pop" to "indie prog". The band consists of A/J Jackson (lead vocals/guitar), Aaron Sharp aka "a sharp" (lead guitar), Dak(bass), and Greg Erwin (drums).
The group initially came together while A/J and Sharp were attending film school in Southern California. The duo later met Dak at a Sushi restaurant where he worked near campus and Greg who went to a school nearby. The band emphasizes visuals in addition to its music, and its 2009 debut EP ForPlay included a video for each of the six songs.
The band's first full length album, Voyeur (2012), debuted at #18 on the alt specialty radio charts and six of its eleven songs managed to chart or hit number one on the Hype Machine Charts. The album was celebrated by everyone from the Washington Post to Daytrotter, as KCRW Music Librarian and DJ, Eric J. Lawrence put it, "They have attacked it with gusto on Voyeur, adding dynamic touches to their rock-solid core of songwriting" and that "Overall the album is a satisfying package from start to finish".
This show is now SOLD OUT
