TUESDAY EVENING 10/09/18 7pm-ish to whenever?!?!. We are so very proud to present three of our of our mostest-est favorite frickin bands who have ever played at LHOOQ/EXREALISM before! The Low Hums, Red Ribbon and The Oxen, who are allplaying here together on October 9th, But let’s me explain. The Low Hums played the first show we ever had, in fact, we booked the show and had it in the parking lot before our Lhooq Books was even open! We filled the parking lot with rock and free love 😉 and they helped set the tone for all shows to follow. What’s the tone? The tone is having serious underground musicians play their hearts out to an open and welcoming crowd where everyone leaves the standard pretentious, scenester style attitude at the door and entering into a new way of listening to the real thing by fucking enjoying themselves?!?! The Low Hums have played here two times sense then and Red Ribbon blew us away while on their first I tour as Red Ribbon, all the members are experienced pros, but together they have found something extraordinarily special and they are currently blowing up. Welcome to stardom with a strong emerging cult following!!!! We honestly would be happy to have just one of these bands play, but both...on the same night!?! This is something no one should miss.This is the one you’ll be saying for the rest of your life with love, “I was there?!?!” This is the one. @lowhums @eedanner #lowhums#redribbion from @union.zero records coming to us all the way from #Seattle you can kick my ass for saying this, but these guys are Seattle’s #musicscene#secondcoming. And finally, but definitely not least the equally as talented, charged band and arguably the best band based in the Greater San Diego / North County are today, “The Oxen” to help us make it through a Tuesday night while limiting the odds against any noise complaints and thus a premature shut down they will be playing a very special stripped down set! And dare I say more often than not these are the kinds of sets that also become the unforgettable. (side note: and don’t miss them for our second annual Halloween Party/show at the end of the month.) #lhooqxrealism #artists#activists #undergroundvenue and #bookstore you got a problem with that? 😉✌🏼 it’s all #love but truly these bands are the best you’re gonna see #truerock#undergroundmusic #wherelifehappens#creativefreedom #createyourcommunity#friendsforlife #pureartists #therealthing#lifetimeofmemories #thankyou
