On-the-rise L.A. rock band Superet — all five members CalArt grads — will throw a free Halloween party and concert for 21-and-older fans at the Bootleg Theater in Los Angeles on Saturday, Oct. 27.
The concert will also feature L.A.-based artists Midnight Sister, DJ Maral and DJ PG Allin.
Superet’s five members are singer and guitarist Matt Blitzer (Music 12), keyboardist Alex Fischel (Music 11), drummer Sam KS (Music BFA 13), bassist Patrick Kelly (Music BFA 13) and Isaac Tamburino (Music BFA 14), who plays guitar, keyboard and percussion.
They first started playing together while at CalArts, and after going their separate ways for a bit, reformed the band in 2016.
Driving by an old church in downtown L.A., they found their band name, Superet, which is Latin for “may it overflow.”
Describing the band in an interview, L.A. Record noted: “Taking cues from heroes like Bowie, Eno, and Byrne, Superet have the vision and the electrifying stage presence to inspire bleary-eyed, arms-outstretched devotion—much like the downtown church from which they lifted their cryptic name. Prophetic, dystopian and dedicated to a razor-sharp aesthetic that’s more urgent New York than laid-back L.A., Superet have distinguished themselves with ease, leaving those who’ve seen the shows or streamed their music wondering who they are.”
Their debut self-titled EP came out in 2017, and the band just recently released its newest single, “Bang My Drum,” which was included in Apple Music’s Best of the Week playlist.
The Bootleg Theater is located at 2220 Beverly Blvd., Los Angeles.
