Interview: The Limousines 'Kick' the record label to the curb

The Limousines are going it alone. The San Jose-based electronic-indie duo of Eric Victorino and Giovanni Giusti have booted the record company execs from their neon stretch Lincoln and grabbed hold of the wheel, so that they may chart their own course through the music biz without anyone from a label breathing down their necks. The Limos are controlling every aspect of their musical careers now, front man Victorino explains, thanks in no small part to Kickstarter — the social networking site that helps artists, musicians and makers to go directly to their fans and crowdsource funding for a given project.

Noise Pop 2010: Wallpaper., The Limousines, Butterfly Bones @ Slim’s

Butterfly Bones - "xoxo" Due to a boppingly unmissable Noise Pop Happy Hour at Benders and a wicked long line at (sold-out!) Slim's, I unfortunately missed Battlehooch's set at the Wallpaper./Limousines co-headlined show Friday night, but Butterfly Bones wasted no time in cheering me up. The electro-pop-rock quartet have definitely been coming up in the San Francisco scene. According to some cursory research and the look on the guys' faces, they'd never played a venue the size of Slim's before. Still, the band didn't have any trouble filling the stage with their glee, the venue with their buds [...]
