Local indie band Dear and the Headlights has been tapped to play a Red Bull Soundclash show with SoCal Rock/rap/reggae outfit The Dirty Heads on November 4 at Marquee Theatre. You can get a pretty good feel for the event from the above video or read this blurb from the promoters:
Red Bull Sound Clash is an unparalleled live musical conversation performance between two bands with diverse sounds, styles and creativity.
The Red Bull Sound Clash experience features two bands with different music styles (e.g. Dub vs. Rock) facing-off on two stages positioned on opposite ends of the venue with the audience in the middle. In a series of four rounds, the bands perform various tasks--some rehearsed, some improvised--to showcase the range of their musical abilities. The audience participates in the back-and-forth exploration between the bands by judging each round.
