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.




Over the past decade, Spin Cycle Presents has played host to a number of memorable moments. Here are just a few we caught on film.

The Sauce 2018 Recap

We are all ingredients of the sauce! The melting pot in which we stir about is created by all types of ages, genres, languages and lifestyles. The intention of the sauce is to blend and transcend the boundaries between a number of SoCal music communities for an unforgettable weekend. Gathering an eclectic mixture of live music and Dj’s from Los Angeles, Orange Country, Ventura County, the Inland Empire and the Apple Valley, the sauce will no doubt turn you on to new incredible artists and create the synergy of communities that a true local music festival does well.
