THE BAND: CHAOS CHAOS
Their Go-To Venue: Zebulon
This synth-pop sister act cut its teeth in Brooklyn, but recently took the plunge and moved out west. Sisters Chloe and Asy Saavedra have already gotten a few local shows under their belt as new LA residents, but Zebulon stood out among the rest for being a haven for artists and a safe testing ground for new music projects, boasting shows every night. “It’s become an everyday place for me and my friends to hang out at and catch our friends perform in weird side projects,” says vocalist and drummer Chloe. Once in NYC, Zebulon relocated to the west coast, drawing inspiration from both cities.
“Everyone from Sonic Youth members to Reggie Watts has played at Zebulon,” Chloe says. “Zebulon is also a cool combination of a fun hangout spot with loud music, but they also make great cocktails. Usually, the good cocktail thing comes with a whole attitude I don’t enjoy, but Zebulon is pretty laid back.”
Chloe also says a pre-show Mexican dinner at Salazar will change your life. Next door to Zebulon, it was name-checked by LA Times food critic and all-around epic food eater Jonathan Gold as one of LA’s best restaurants.
