Post-Memorial Day gloom got you down? Never fear! The Frog is here with a weekend of good times and sweet jams to kick your summer off right!

On Friday, May 29th, Arrica Rose and The …’s (that’s “The Dot Dot Dots,” not some sort of literary suspense or anything) will be offering up their tantalizing tunes for your listening pleasure at Hotel Cafe at 9pm. For just a $5 cover you can enjoy the sultry sounds that LA Weekly called “effortlessly sensual music.”

Arrica Rose

The …’s feature Marc Thomas, Ryan Brown, Kaitlin Wolfberg, Steve Giles, Harry Kim, Eliot Lorango, and Daniel Garcia. Lead by Arrica Rose’s heavenly pipes, they’re a match made in heaven as far as we’re concerned! But don’t take our word for it – check out their music video for “The Shallow End”:

Their most recent album, Wavefunction, is available on iTunes for just 10 smacks!

And if that’s not enough musical goodness for one weekend, on Saturday, May 30th, The Blessings will be launching their new 5-song EP, Shipwrecked. If you happen to be in the LA area, you can snag a FREE copy of the CD by attending their record release party at El Cid in Silverlake. The Blessings will be joined by other cool young bands such as Dr. Boogie and Modern Kicks, and Jordan Jones will be DJing between sets. It all starts at 9pm, tickets are $5 and the show is 21+ so leave the kids at home! AND The Blessings’ drummer (and executive producer of their new EP), Jason, is celebrating his birthday on Saturday as well, so festivity is guaranteed!
