8/14/18

BY NICOLE GHAPGHARAN

If you happened to be at The Satellite last Thursday (8/9), you likely saw me rocking out to L.A. locals Antenna The End, alongside System of a Down’s Shavo Odadjian and John Dolmayan. That night, the beloved Silverlake spot also welcomed Antipodal, Phantom Machines and Heavy Machinery.

But we're focusing on Antenna the End—the independent music ensemble that packed the dungeon-esque space and delivered a wave of emotions with their performance. The band is spearheaded by Armenian-American songwriter and bassist David Hakopyan and has a quite a creative cast, including Tadeh Petrossian on guitar, Ryan Knights on drums, and perhaps the most interesting addition to the motley crew, Mesrop Karapetyan, on guitar and cello. Somewhere between my first and third beer, Karapetyan retrieved his cello for “Remember Me By”—a genre bending tune that definitely stood out from their six-song set. 

Hakopyan, formerly with The Apex Theory, is somewhat of a rock aficionado, if you will. Having also been a member of SOIL, his rock roots run deep, and it’s no surprise as to why they drew in such a crowd. Truthfully, Antenna The End brings an energy to the stage that’s unmatched when compared to any other band I’ve seen this year.

You can catch ATE at their next show, on Saturday (8/18) at Echo Park Rising—a free event that runs through the weekend and features multiple stages and activities that span the Echo Park neighborhood, primarily on and around Sunset Blvd. between Alvarado St. and Echo Park Ave. Get all the set times for that four-day party right here.
