On the second Thursday of every month, I join my pals Verdilak at Begbie at Alpine Village for Jupiter 8. We play synthpop, electro and industrial tunes for your dancing pleasure.

This month Fractured Transmission and D/Sir play live at the party. We’re pretty excited about this and would love to see you there too. Jupiter 8 is 21+ only at Alpine Village in Torrance. Party starts at 10 p.m. and the cover is $5. For more info, see the Facebook invite.

Some pieces are still available for purchase. Check out Leanna Lin’s website for more info.
