As a means to foster goodwill between artists, music lovers and Incase, we have created Room 205, a rehearsal space in Downtown Los Angeles that has been converted into an audio recording studio. A new venture within our overarching Sound & Vision initiative, Room 205 will play host to touring and local bands who will each perform three songs and sit with us for some casual conversation.
Inside Room 205 you’ll be able to watch intimate performances and interviews, stream audio of the tracks and view photos of the sessions in the improvised space filled with recording equipment, sunlight and creativity. New and exclusive content will be posted to Room 205 (under Sound & Vision) every week for your listening and viewing pleasure.
We launch Room 205 with local LA favorites Abe Vigoda and a live recording of “Throwing Shade” from their recently released sophomore album, Crush.
Abe Vigoda (the Los Angeles-based post-punk quartet, not the octogenarian actor who played Sergeant Phil Fish on the sitcom Barney Miller) is as defined by their inability to be defined as anything else. On Crush, they continue to expand on their cold wave, minimal synth and new romantic influences, taking listeners on an unnerving sonic thrill ride filled with jarring twists and turns.
We’ll be releasing two more sessions with Abe Vigoda on October 11 and 18, so be sure to keep Room 205 bookmarked for future visits.
Room 205 joins Project Space and THIS Visits as the latest addition to Incase’s Sound & Vision initiative, a project created to share our collective passion for art and music and showcase the people that inspire us.
