LAFW Music Spotlight: Black Cards

by Megan Scott and Vanessa Vega

Ethos is back in LA everyone, and Black Cards, featuring Fall Out Boy’s former bassist/front man Pete Wentz, will be making their Los Angeles debut during LA FASHION WEEK!!! That's right, we’ve booked the electric sensation to play a live concert at the House of Blues on October 14th.

The Black Cards have toured overseas and performed three shows out on the east coast, but this will be their first performance in Cali and we are ecstatic to have them join us for LA Fashion Week. If you haven’t heard the Black Cards, they’re a mixture of dance/ska/reggae and rock/pop with a new sound referred to as “electropop”.

Grammy nominated, multi-platinum selling bassist, and lyricist, Pete Wentz is ready to tear up the stage with his new band Black Cards. Wentz was part of Fall Out Boy from 2002-2009 and when he took a break from music to focus on his new family, he found himself inspired by a new sound, and eager to share it with his fans.

The Black Cards emerged as a result of Pete's enlightening Jamaican vacation where he was inspired by Jamaican root reggae bands. He then enlisted pop vocalist, Bebe Rexha and Spencer Peterson on drums to create a new reggae infused, 80’s British rock sound. This band definitely knows how to get a crowd going and on their feet! So wear some comfortable shoes when you come to see them at ETHOS LA FASHION WEEK.

Black Cards music can be found at The band’s EP has not yet been released.
