She sold out The Echo for this month in a very short amount of time, and that’s a month before her new album drops. Those who missed out should circle October 17 on their calendars, because Meg Myers will be playing a headline gig at the El Rey Theatre!
Meg Myers drops her sophomore full-length record Take Me To The Disco on July 20 via 300 Entertainment. The former Atlantic Records signee departed from her major label and will put out the awesome and authentic new record with an indie label. The lead single from the album “Numb” addresses the problems she faced at her major label and she sounds at her best on the new album. The advance copy I received has been in constant rotation.
I’m excited to get a preview of how these new songs are going to sound live at The Echo in a few weeks. The latest single “Take Me To The Disco” is another gem, but my favorites from the new record are ones that haven’t been released yet. I can’t wait to see which new songs make her set list. If you haven’t seen her live, she’s one of the most dynamic live performers I’ve ever seen. Myers really throws herself into her performance — quite literally at time — making every performance guttural.
The show at the El Rey on October 17 will conclude a 20-show tour that begins September 15 in Santa Ana at The Observatory.
Tickets to see Meg Myers at the El Rey Theatre on Wednesday, October 17 are priced at $20.00 and go on sale Friday, June 15 at 10 AM Pacific Time.
