    sHannyn’s HaReM Listen up: The homegrown, semi-incestuous sonic
    scene that surrounds actress Shannyn Sossamon (40 Days and 40
    Nights) is about to begin making some serious noise. Warpaint, the up-
    and-strumming psych-folk outfit for which she played drums until film
    work forced her to bow out in late ’08, has released its ethereal full-
    length, Exquisite Corpse, and will soon take off to Austin for a SXSW
    stint in March with BFF band Weave!, whose own EP, the neo-Bow
    Wow Wow Rastatution, drops in a few months. (The latter’s drummer is
    Nicole Turley—currently the sweetie of John Frusciante from the Red
    Hot Chili Peppers, who used to date Warpaint guitarist Emily Kokal.)
    Both acts, who have drawn fans like Heath Ledger and Kirsten Dunst
    to gigs, get booked at Eastside venues like Bordello and Spaceland, often
    on the same bill with their buds in Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic
    Zeros before grabbing an après-set round at Little Joy with the dudes
    from Rriiccee, the über-experimental collab between Vincent Gallo
    and Simon and Nikolas Haas, brothers of actor Lukas. “We’re all just a
    bunch of kids doing totally different things [musically],” says Warpaint
    bassist—and Shannyn sis—Jennifer Lindberg of the scene’s disparate
    sounds, “but we’re all playing on the same playground.” –A.J.
