We are launching the LAMC split 7” series in loving memory Ariel Panero, our dear friend and a partner in Famous Class.

The series gets its name from the epic Less Artists More Condos concerts that Ariel threw, showcasing amazing bands in some strange and unique venues. Ariel’s driving force was a desire to get the bands he believed in the recognition he felt they deserved. This series simply tries to honor that idea.

For each LAMC split 7” we ask one of our favorite bands to provide us with an unreleased track for the A-side. We then asked them to pick their favorite emerging artist to provide a track for the B-side. Ariel’s LAMC shows introduced New Yorkers to bands they might not have otherwise discovered – we hope that this series will do the same. We’ll also make the tracks available on the FAMOUS CLASS bandcamp page with 100% of the digital proceeds going to the Ariel Panero Memorial Fund at VH1 Save the Music.

“When we first emailed Katy Goodman, her band, La Sera, was touring the midwest around the same time Hurricane Sandy was touching down on the New Jersey coast. Though she’s now based in LA, Goodman’s from Jersey originally, and fortunately her family made it safely through the storm. That’s not why we were emailing her though. 

Goodman had posted on her Instagram about a reference to a make-your-own merch station at her tour stops. Turns out she was kidding about the merch station. Kind of.”

Read the interview:

“Hey Sandy, We’re Still Here. (A Hurricane Benefit)”: Music compilation to raise money for New Jersey.

“Hey Sandy, We’re Still Here is a rock and roll benefit featuring bands from near and far, all of whom have some connection to the areas affected by Sandy.  

Among its dozens of tracks, Hey Sandy features a new song from Shark River Hill’s Nicole Atkins, a b-side from Ridgewood’s Real Estate, a never-before-heard track by Jersey City’s American Watercolor Movement, a song from La Sera (aka Kickball Katy), an early interview of a young Neil Hamburger by a pre-Best Show (and one of Jersey’s favorite sons) Tom Scharpling, a brand new song from Tuckerton’s The Everymen, a new track from Bayonne’s Cold Fur which boasts former members of Rye Coalition, a tune from Long Island’s Nude Beach, songs from Those Mockingbirds, Cinema Cinema, pow wow!, Holy City Zoo and I Am The Heat, along with contributions from bands and artists from all across New Jersey, New York and Connecticut. We even went bi-coastal and scored a track from Los Angeles indie rockers NO.

For a minimum donation of $5 (after $5, it’s pay what you want with absolutely no maximum) you can get all the songs on this compilation, with your donation going straight to the American Red Cross.
