Previously at the ICA - Events

With a new album produced by Mark Ronson and friends, this all female Los Angeles outfit are reminiscent of 60s outfits such as The Animals and Shangri-Las infused with their own edgy, clear-eyed romanticism.
At the band’s core is the partnership between founding members Z Berg (vocals, guitar) and Tennessee Thomas (drums) who formed the band when they were 15. On enlisting Laena Geronimo (bass) and Annie Monroe (organ) says Tennessee “we never intended to be a girl band, but we became rather pleased about it eventually".
UK fans now get to experience The Like’s retro-neuvo sound in person at the ICA. Should be a good 'un.
"Wearing heavy eyeliner and tiny miniskirts, Californian quartet the Like are 1960s perfection.....wrapped in Motown- and Shadow Morton-inspired teen angst." Guardian.
