Silverlake Lounge: Joe K's Kid, Box of Birds, and Niantic (Videos)

Last weekend I headed out to the Silverlake Lounge to experience music (and a cheap early evening happy hour!).  It was the perfect outing of music to get me all gung-ho for the Silver Lake Jubilee coming up this weekend.

It was great evening of Joe K's Kid, Box of Birds, and Niantic.

Joe K's Kid opened with a rocking set of electric guitar, drums, bass, and vocals.  Their set included a great Jimi Hendrix cover (plus a story about growing up, learning, and understanding) which is featured in our YouTube playlist.

They were followed by Box of Birds (sans their drummer, so "Alex" ...the drum machine was in his place), who call themselves a Twee pop band.  Some of the music incorporated music from Mrs. Brown's Lovely Daughter (which two members are a part of ) and a cover (video in the playlist below). 
Closing the evening was Niantic, which  I unfortunately wasn't able to stay for, but check out their MySpace for their music.
