BLVD Records is SUPER STOKED to announce that legendary cult "beautiful noise/American shoegaze" progenitor Scott Cortez will be debuting ASTROBRITE on the West Coast this month. Astrobrite has been invited to the Part Time Punks Shoegaze Fest, and will be playing amongst legends such as Mark Gardener (RIDE) & Brad Laner (MEDICINE) + hot bands of the nu-gaze cult (WEEKEND, KVB) on Sunday, June 24.

Part Time Punks is one of California's longest-running weekly DIY events, taking place weekly at the Echo in Echo Park, LA & curated by promoter/DJ Michael Stock since 2005. Stock also hosts the critically-acclaimed Part Time Punks radio show on KXLU.

In preparation for his first California performance, Cortez will be leading an Astrobrite "send-off" show in Chicago at Late Bar, on Thursday, June 21. This special event will act as a fundraiser for Astrobrite's extra travel expenses for the festival. Excellent local drone/ambient/experimental guitarist Cinchel opens.

Live Astrobrite performances are EXTREMELY rare, so we're happy to announce these two special events as the success of our vinyl release of Astrobrite's "Crush" album continues to soar, AND as we begin preparations for our upcoming Astrobrite vinyl issue of "Pinkshinyultrablast" (due fall/winter of this year).

Cortez's new Astrobrite lineup also consists of Andrew Marrah (New Canyons, Airiel, Mahogany) on guitars/effects, and BLVD's own Melissa Geils on keyboards.
