PART TIME PUNKS is a club that takes over noted Echo Park live music venue, The Echo on 1822 Sunset, every Sunday night. The night focuses heavily on DIY and Indie vinyl coming out of the U.S., UK and Europe from 1977 to the present: Punk, Post-Punk, Synth-Punk, Synthpop, Minimal Synth, Dark/Cold/Minimal Wave, NDW, Industrial, New Wave, No Wave, C86, Indiepop, Twee, Shoegaze, Baggy and even Krautrock…


  • 03.01 NO JOY + NIGHTMARE AIR + FLAAMINGOS

    Doomy shoegaze outfit NO JOY return to LA with a set chock full of new songs from their forthcoming new LP, due out soon on Mexican Summer.  Moody interlocking guitars meets ethereal sunburst femme vocals and an ever-shifting pallet of percussives....  

    Listen to NO JOY.

    Meticulously layered indie boy-girl harmonies meets psych noise loops meets fuzz-ripped bass = the lush sounds of NIGHTMARE AIR.  These former Film School-ers are "leading the charge.. with possibly the finest shoegaze album I’ve heard so far this year" according to THE BIG TAKEOVER.  And credible sources tell me they may be THE loudest band in Lost Angeles.  (Though I reckon Tennis System might have something to say about that...)

    Listen to NIGHTMARE AIR.

    With their debut LP recently dropped on the Felte label, FLAAMINGOS is poised to be more than just one of PTP's newest favouritest darkwave bands.  Imagine a collection of extraordinary Depeche Mode b-sides circa "Speak & Spell" that you've never heard before + the imaginary Kraftwerk LP recorded between "The Man Machine" and "Computer World" and you're almost there...

    Listen to FLAAMINGOS.
