RENDEZVOUS! with Leenda Karina & Todd Gilchrist TONIGHT!!


Join us tonight, Friday, August 9th, as we welcome the return of our long-time friend and supporter Leenda Karina! We are also excited to welcome our NEW pal Todd Gilchrist! With a glowing recommendation from Death Waltz Recording Company's Spencer Hickman, you know this guy's gonna bring some heat (horror disco, he tells us!). 

Also, you may have noticed that we are opening at 8. This is because beginning with this session, we will be screening a film in its entirety BEFORE the DJs hit the decks! That's right, join us early, watch a flick, have some beers, and stick around for the tunes! Of course, we will still be screening films with subtitles in the background once the music begins. For our debut screening, we'll be showing the Bava giallo classic (some say, the one that one that started them all) 'Blood and Black Lace' !
--------------
$5 Beers. Cash only. Free entry.
8PM screening of Mario Bava's 'Blood and Black Lace' ('Sei donne per l'assassino' - Italy, 1964).

Death Waltz Recording Co. Live DJ Set at RENDEZVOUS!



Transfered direct from cassette tape, here is a 48 minute DJ set by Spencer Hickman of Death Waltz Recording Company (UK), recorded live at RENDEZVOUS! on 10 May 2013. What makes this set unique is Mr. Hickman arrived in Los Angeles only a few days prior with absolutely no records. This mix is composed of selections he purchased in the few short days leading up to our event. All vinyl, naturally.

RENDEZVOUS! with Dr. Who & Death Waltz Recording Company!



Join us for our third session at the Hyperion Tavern in Silverlake on Friday, May 10th as we welcome Dr. Who DJ's Dina Juntila and Carey Yost! Dr. Who is, in our opinion, an LA staple specializing in obscure and psychedelic 60s & 70s soundtracks, fuzz, funk, and other sonic weirdness...just the kind of stuff we love! True vinyl hounds, we cannot wait to hear what gems they will no doubt bring along. We will also be screening Sergio Martino's 'All the Colors of the Dark' and Dario Argento's 'The Bird with the Crystal Plumage' on the huge projection screen!  

***JUST ADDED*** 

Direct from the UK, Spencer Hickman from Death Waltz Recording Company will be joining us as well!

RENDEZVOUS! Visits The Heru Avenger Archives, Part 3

On the 24th of February 2013, AM (A.K.A. George Ben Sun) and I returned to sunny Orange County, CA to pay a visit to our dear friend, and fellow obsessive, John Basil. It was a fun filled day of record and VHS tape browsing, electronics discussing, concert footage viewing, Mexican food eating, and all-out general awing! We always enjoy our time at the "archives" and look forward to our next visit. Click on the photos to enlarge.
