BOOKS ON FATE
My first experience with Venus Beltran was as a one-man band featuring singer/guitarist Dave Han alone on stage. These earlier shows were amazing as Han is a gifted and confident performer, but the addition of a full band (Serena Joshi - guitar, Susie Kim - bass, Chris Chan - drums) adds a whole new dimension to the sound.
Venus Beltran put on a polished set and perform like they've been playing together for years - likely because all of the members are active musicians who've been involved in many other bands.
Definitely check them out if you get the chance!
IN LETTER FORM
The band played a varied set consisting of songs from both their first EP and newer material which is yet to be released. They also do an outstanding cover of "Ceremony", which never fails to get the crowd moving.
In Letter Form will be playing Bar Sinister in Los Angeles on January 18, so if you're in the area definitely go check them out & enjoy their first L.A. show!
