A Conversation With Band To Watch The Beta Machine

Already comprising the rhythm sections of the family tree of bands made up of A Perfect Circle, Ashes Divide, Puscifer and Carina Round, drummer Jeff Friedl and bassist Matt McJunkins are gearing up to unleash their own passion project, The Beta Machine, this year.  
 
Featured on the recently released track “By And Down” – A Perfect Circle’s first new single in nine years – Friedl and McJunkins have really made their mark in the music community and aren’t stopping there, as they push the boundaries of their talents and time, attempting to launch their own musical endeavor, as well as juggling the demands of so many other successful projects. A good problem to have for two guys who seven years ago were gigging out with everyone and anyone, just trying to eke out a living in the L.A. music scene.

Celebrate The Whisky's 50th All Month!

It’s not every day that you celebrate a 50th anniversary, especially when the anniversary you are celebrating is for one of the most legendary music venues in the U.S. , the Whisky A Go-Go.

Stop by and enjoy a variety of performances celebrating rock and roll, metal and soul.
