Class Actress Plays LA and OC This Week

Written by  Published in Previews Tuesday, 07 February 2012 16:04


The LA-native sexy electro-pop troupe, Class Actress, is returning to Southern California this week to play dates at The Echo and Costa Mesa’s Detroit Bar. Led by the seductive Elizabeth Harper, the trio produces pop gems that gleam with 80s-inspired influences such as early Madonna and Depeche Mode.

Beginning her career as a singer/songwriter, Harper transitioned from acoustic songstress to electronic-laden pop queen, and with the help from producer Mark Richardson and engineer/multi-instrumentalist Scott Rosenthal, The now-Brooklyn-based outfit is touring in support of its critically acclaimed debut record (which made it on my “Top 5 Albums of 2011” list), Rapprocher. The blend of Richardson and Rosenthal’s instrumentation and Harper’s seductive vocals is bound to get any audience riled up, and will make for a good dance party. Class Actress plays The Echo on Thursday, February 9. 8:30 pm. $10 adv., $12 dos. 18+, and Detroit Bar on Saturday, February 11. 9 pm. $10 presale. 21+.

Katrina Nattress

For as long as she can remember (and probably before then), Katrina has been a music addict. Raised attending concerts and listening to records with her father in Portland, Oregon, there was no question as to what the little audiophile would be when she grew up—a music journalist. And from the first day she wrote an album review for a blog in high school, she never deterred from that path. With a journalism degree from the University of Oregon under her belt, Katrina decided to pack up and move to where the action was. She now spends her days basking in the sun of the city of angels, keeping Amoeba Records in healthy business, and watching live music every chance she gets.
