LA based project Mating Ritual, hatched by Ryan Marshall Lawhon, will be hosting a Christmas bash at the Moroccan Lounge with SWIMM and Goldensuns on Sunday, December 3, 2017.
Lawhon and his brother previously formed Pacific Air. However, the band announced a hiatus and Lawhon redirected his efforts into a new solo project, now Mating Ritual. How You Gonna Stop It?, Mating Ritual’s debut release, came out this past year as a collection of two six-track albums. Lawhon had spent 2015-2017 writing and recording the tracks in a myriad of settings along the West Coast spanning garages to cruise ships.
SWIMM produces ephemeral indie-pop grooves for dancefloors. After relocating from Florida to LA four years ago, the act initially turned heads with their song “Belly” off of their Beverly Hells EP. A new album titled Sentimental Porno is scheduled for an upcoming release.
Goldensuns, also based in LA but by way of Salt Lake City, will be kicking off the Christmas party as the opening act.
