Off the 405 is back! Join us for sunset concerts on our courtyard stage starting May 19 with LA's own Allah-Las. ✌️
California pop and garage rock revivalists Allah-Las formed in 2008, when the members were working at L.A.'s legendary record store Amoeba Music. Forging a sound steeped in sun-bleached nostalgia, they pull inspiration from the British Invasion, West Coast psychedelia, surf, and garage rock. They recorded their third full-length album, 2016's acclaimed Calico Review, on vintage equipment at the revived Valentine Recording Studios, a storied spot used by the Beach Boys, Stan Kenton, and Frank Zappa. Recording early on with noted L.A. producer Nick Waterhouse, Allah-Las have risen to play major fests like Coachella and Desert Daze in recent years. Most recently, Allah-Las released Covers #1, which wields an «inherent lightheartedness, but the weight of a certain melancholy is palpable,» a VICE critic wrote, comparing it to the quintessential paradox of life in Los Angeles: «a place where the nightmare of rush hour coincides with the ethereal beauty of golden hour.»
