Saint Motel Kick Off Tour With A Special Performance
Los Angeles quartet Saint Motel has earned renown for its unique take on indie pop, absurdist lyrical ideas, and its penchant for spectacular live performance. The hotly-tipped indie rockers are gearing up to kick off their West Coast headlining tour but not before making a special performance for the much buzzed about fashion blog Lookbook.nu’s first-ever Holiday Party at Los Angeles’ Dim Mak Studios on November 15. To RSVP for the free event visit http://bit.ly/LBPARTY.
Soon after Thanksgiving, Saint Motel will head up the California coast hitting Stockton and Sacramento before reaching Seattle, Vancouver and Portland. The band will then circle back towards Southern California stopping off in Seaside and Fresno before wrapping Saturday, December 15 in Costa Mesa, CA.

In other exciting news, Saint Motel recently recorded an exclusive 3-song session for the highly regarded music site Daytrotter.com. The session, released this Tuesday, November 13, was recorded at Studio Paradiso in San Francisco, CA and features the band’s latest single “Benny Goodman.”
Daytrotter themselves praised the recording writing, “The band makes its vices sound and seemingly taste like salt water taffy. Jackson sings about California dreams and somehow they sound attainable anywhere. These dreams and the romantic’s view of good love are addictions and he’s hooked on them, singing, ‘It’s just so hard to quit when you’re hooked on it.’ He pulls closer a jug of wine, gives hell to ‘days that don’t make love with the night’ and writes a bunch of hooky songs that sound like good meals that you’ll think about occasionally and remember vividly for the rest of your life, as they’re always going to speak to that one specific night.” Check out the session here: ow.ly/fgny8.
