spin cycle presents

Spin Cycle Presents is a Los Angeles-based event promotion company founded by Keith Erickson in 2009. Keith created Spin Cycle out of a need for like-minded folks to perform, network, socialize and grow into the vibrant community it is today.

The Spin Cycle @ TRiP series is a monthly eclectic musical showcase featuring popular bands and up and coming live acts looking for exposure, adding a much-desired Northeast improvisational flavor to the West Side of LA. These shows have quickly built a loyal following and become a central hub for Los Angeles' growing jamband and experimental music community

In addition to this popular music series, Spin Cycle has been involved in other high profile events around the LA area, including everal sold out "Cosmik Playground" superjam concerts (featuring members of Umphrey's McGee, Frank Zappa, String Cheese Incident and Digital Tape Machine), Soulshine Daydream Wellness Festival, Shaky Feelin's seminal Album Release Party at the historic Crest Theatre, Mission 24 (a 24-hour underground music festival), the Shakedown Music Series at the Basement Tavern and the live TV broadcast series Birds of a Feather @ Kulaks Woodshed.


Lettuce brings the funk to the Teragram Ballroom



Lettuce, the heavy-hitting funk outfit hailing from Brooklyn, NY barreled their way down the West Coast and brought the Mt. Crushmore Tour to the sold-out Teragram Ballroom in Los Angeles with support from the Russ Liquid Test.  

The band is in top form right now, even without the presence of guitarist Eric Krasno, and always have an electric energy about their live shows.  The horns of Eric 'Benny' Bloom and Ryan Zoidis aka The Shady Horns, mixed with the fatty basslines of founding member Erick 'Jesus' Coomes, masterful percussion of Adam Deitch, all chopped together with Adam 'Schmeeans' Smirnoff on guitar and the ever-so-playful Nigel Hall and Neal Evans on keys make for the healthiest dose of live funk music on the scene today.
