Please Welcome The Flintettes!

It goes without saying that we here at LA-TI-DA have been looking forward to announcing this one ever since their debut at Fall Down/Get Down this past November: please join us in welcoming The Flintettes!

Flintettes-coverFeaturing Mike Flintoff (The Tranzmitors), CC Rose (Vancougar) and Marissa Johnson (Dizzy Eyes).  

The three track single is slated for an April release. We’ll hang back on pre-orders until after spring break. Until then, here’s a stream of the lead off track:

All celebratory and welcoming drinks can be sent to the judges table at the SOUL CLAP DANCE OFF where Mike and the ladies will be joining the panel looking to give the $100 CASH PRIZE to a dancer with some serious moves! It doesn’t matter if you’re competing or just shakin’ your butt, Saturday promises to be a night jam packed with fun! Come early for Calvin Love, The Shivas, and The Ballantynes and stay late for the best cuts from Jonathan Toubin and Vinyl Richie.

The Ballantynes Announce March West Coast Tour!

TourPoster3A busy year at home brought The Ballantynes into the daylight at Squamish Live! and Rifflandia, and found them opening for garage greats like the Oblivians and Roky Erickson, but on the cusp of Spring with their latest LA-TI-DA Records release making its rounds, Vancouver’s soul-drenched seven piece find themselves itching to tour on their new “Liquor Store Gun Store Pawn Shop Church” EP. The 12 date tour winds its way along the West Coast March 15th – 29th, kicking off in Spokane, WA with dates down to Long Beach, before creeping back on up for a finale in Seattle. With wanderlust, homes away from home, and warmer weather lighting up their eyes, the septet are eager to revisit the sites and the company that dot their album covers and echo through their songs respectively.

Send them off Saturday March 1st with The Shivas and Calvin Love at Electric Owl Social Club with Jonathan Toubin’s SOUL CLAP DANCE OFF!
