After a couple of months intensely making a new album, it sure is nice to get out and play. Happy to have Triptides and Seaweed Salad aboard on Friday February 27 at the Ham and Eggs Tavern in Downtown LA.
Things have been quiet here on the website but it's because We're hard at work on a new full length album which is now being mixed. More news on this soon... Very exciting stuff!
We're also excited to be a part of the movie Surf Noir which features a collaboration with the actress Troian Bellisario singing on our version of Sea of Love along with an original score performed by Trabants.
We sadly had to bypass New York on our May tour due to scheduling reasons but are making up for it with two shows this coming weekend in NYC. We're very excited for these:
Lots of recording going on this month but we're taking a break from that to host our good friend and occasional musical collaborator Prom Queen who's releasing a DVD album this month. We took the opportunity and booked a show with some of our favorite area bands who are deserving of your attention. See you at Ham and Eggs Tavern October 16!
We're coming off of a brief hiatus and kicking off a busy fall with this stellar show at the Smell in downtown LA with Yonatan Gat who was once the guitar player in Monotonix, a band I truly loved from Tel Aviv. His new project is no less awe-inspiring. Also, Traps PS rock it.
We had an amazing tour on the east coast! Thanks to everyone who made it out to a show or helped us along the way!
Now, we're very excited to play Dreamland #9 with the Memories, The Zermatts and Wax Children. Psyched to be on this bill!
We're thrilled to be hitting the road next week through out the East Coast on our way down to play the Instro Summit Festival in Durham, NC. We haven't made it to some of these places in a good while so we hope to see some of you out and about!
Our friends at Lo-Pie have added us to an AMAZING show on May 1st with Charlie Megira who is traveling all the way from Tel-Aviv to bring some garage surf jams to Austin Psych Fest via California. This is a show you won't want to miss.
The Falls in Downtown LA just got its entertainment license and Trabants are going to curate a monthly night. We plan to host live music in the future, but to kick things off, come out this wednesday to hear some crazy garage pop and surf from around the world. see you there!
Welcome to the new Trabants website. We're working on lots of new music and heading out on an east coast tour in May which includes a stop at the Instro Summit festival in Durham, NC. Hopefully we'll see some of you out on the road. In the Meantime, come out to Lolipop Records in Echo Park this Tuesday for a free show with the Electric Magpie!
