Weekly Wooot -- Rainbow Arabia

rainbow_arabia_1_0.jpg

An absolutely bounty of show options this week with local favorite Mi Ami alongside High Places at Rickshaw Stop Wednesday, previously profiled Neon Indian at Mezzanine Friday and hop hop legend in the making Flying Lotus at Mezzanine Saturday.

Our featured artist this week is Los Angeles based husband and wife duo Rainbow Arabia, who play Cafe Du Nord Wednesday. The experimental yet approachable act blends tribal inspired rhythms, Middle Eastern instrumentation and electro-friendly beats to create some of the most unique dance music to emerge in recent memory. Their high energy performance at last month's Noise Pop Festival proved to be one of the week's true highlights, and we are still recovering from the late night dance party they put on at SXSW Friday night. With rising bedroom producer Shlohmo rounding out the bill this one should prove to be a great night.

Several more great shows to choose from this week including Japanese shredders Acid Mothers Temple at Bottom of the Hill Wednesday, a Neon Indian DJ set at the epicsauce hosted party at Milk Thursday and grungy 90's house revivalist Pictureplane at Rickshaw Stop Sunday -- as always, be sure to consult the full showlist.
