Mika Miko

Mika Miko said goodbye to seven years of being a band with a trio of year-end shows at The Smell in L.A. The three-night run culimated in a final January 1st show, in which the band played for about an hour and a half. Rachel Carr, our photographer who captured the action, described the scene as "constant stage divers, balloons, confetti, glitter, six drummers, handheld fireworks, a stage full of friends (including members of other esteemed LA bands like Abe Vigoda and No Age), and several middle-aged relatives clinging bravely to the monitors."

Two-fifths of Mika Miko will carry on as part of the Strange Boys, who have 2010 shows planned around the West Coast and the South.

Goodbye Mike Miko! More pictures from the last show (1/1/2010) and videos from all three nights (including New Years Eve) are below...

6:02 do you mean BV? Judging by how pissy and juvenile a lot of comments on here are, I'd say 'No'.

One of the most fun shows I've ever been a part of. Sad to see them go but I'm glad I caught them.

Maybe the juvenile comments will cease some when theres not an abundance of horrid bands playing sloppy punk lo fi new wave ripped off straight out of 1982 L.A. from New Wave theatre bands.
