By day, Florida native David Levesque drives a school bus. In the off-hours, he records catchy tunes as Levek. You can check out two songs at the top of this post. Now a six-piece band, Levek is on a short tour that hits town this weekend, Saturday (3/5) at Cameo with Dinosaur Feathers, Motel Motel and ohnomoon, and then Sunday at Pianos with Unknown Mortal Orchestra who are touring with the Smith Westerns.
Levek will then play a few shows in his home state with neighbors Holiday Shores and Idiot Glee. What, no SXSW?
Meanwhile, Motel Motel are also playing Cake Shop tonight (3/4) with Shark? and Dinosaur Feathers. The band claim this weekend's shows are likely to be their last hometown gigs ever as they're going on "permanent hiatus." Before calling it quits Motel Motel are going on One Last Tour (with Dinosaur Feathers) that includes stops at SXSW.
