Little Joy
Los Angeles’ own Little Joy is about to embark on a month long jaunt across the US and will be stopping at The Independent here in San Francisco next Wednesday. What began as a chance meeting in Lisbon between Rodrigo Amarante (Los Hermanos) and Fabrizio Moretti (The Strokes), Little Joy became a reality after a move to Los Angeles, the addition of Bikini Shapiro, and several late night song writing sessions; they released their first self-titled full length late last year on Rough Trade.

Although Moretti will not be joining the rest of the band on this tour due to his commitments with The Strokes, Little Joy has employed several new additions to fill out their live sound including Todd Dahlhoff and Matt Borg (The Dead Trees), Matt Romano (Albert Hammond Jr’s band), and Jack Dishel (Only Son).
