LIZZY & THE TRIGGERMEN OFFICIAL SXSW DEBUT
Parker Jazz Club – March 19
Miles Davis house – March 21
New EP ‘Good Songs For Bad Times’ Out This April Featuring New Re-Imagined Single “Someday” By The Strokes
Lizzy & The Triggermen, a trailblazing, 10-piece, throwback swing/jazz band, make their official SXSW debut at Parker Jazz Club (March 19) and Miles Davis House at Antone’s (March 21), ahead of their new EP, Good Songs For Bad Times. Set for release on April 10th, the EP features a new re-imagined take on “Someday” by The Strokes as an instant grat. The single releases March 13. Check it out HERE.
Dubbed “10-piece jazz sensations” by LA Weekly and “one of the hottest swing bands in LA” by Good Day LA, Lizzy & The Triggermen is doing for 1930s big band what Amy Winehouse and the Dap-Kings did for 60s music: taking the old and making it feel arrestingly new.
In just a year, the band has headlined and sold-out shows at premiere venues such as the Wiltern Theatre, the El Rey and the Troubadour before even releasing a single track, just through word-of-mouth about their electric live shows which has organically built them a dedicated following.
Be it songs about female empowerment, gaslighting, or the world ending – Lizzy & The Triggermen has an undeniable ability to take the topics of today and turn them into gloriously raucous dance music that recharges the spirit in that way only a full horn section can.
Helmed by the powerhouse vocals, songwriting chops and femme fatale swagger of Lizzy and a dream team of veteran jazz musicians (who have played with everyone from Buck Clayton to Benny Goodman), the band transports the audience to a glamorous, golden-era experience that is edgy and a bit underground. Check out their performance on Good Day LA HERE.
