DIANA - Here Come The Warm Jets

Full review to follow. As has become a springtime tradition, Sonic Boom turned Record Store Day into a day-long spectacle, with live bands providing entertainment to the crowded store all afternoon long. Say what you will about the corporatization of the event, it does get people out and gives the community a chance to gather together — just hanging around all day felt like a rock'n'roll reunion as I kept running into friends and acquaintances old and new.

After a whole lotta touring behind their Perpetual Surrender album, synth-rockers DIANA are looking for some new challenges, including tackling what they informed the crowd was their first ever performance of a cover. They'll be similarly tackling some new horizons with a pair of shows this week at The Drake Underground that will tap into two different vibes: their "most opiated performance ever" on Thursday (with a lineup filled with MFS faves, including Doc Dunn, the Love Nation's ASMR buds [members of Bernice and more] and Jennifer Castle) and a "pure dance set" on Friday (including a set from Ice Cream and a performance by the awesome vogue crew House Of Monroe).
