Mating Ritual

Mating Ritual

Mating Ritual is the pen name of Ryan Marshall Lawhon, a 27-year-old Los Angeles transplant who's makes new age and post punk inspired indie rock.

When he was young, the precocious Lawhon took an early interest in his mother's record collection. Growing up on Ray Lynch, Laurie Anderson, and Enya, he was undoubtedly influenced by the calming groove of ‘90s new age and the very literal sound of recorded ocean waves. But too much beauty can numb even the most tranquil of minds, and Ryan eventually became infatuated with the comparatively aggressive and brooding sounds of post punk and early 00's garage rock.

Enlisting the help of former Pacific Air bandmate and brother Taylor Lawhon, along with drummer Rob Humphries, Mating Ritual's quasi mission statement is to blend those opposing ideals with timeless hooks, a visceral combination that bridges decades of music.

After landing multiple #1's on the blog aggregate Hype Machine, topping the Spotify viral charts and grabbing the Zane Lowe stamp of approval with his debut EP, Mating Ritual, Lawhon and co. will release Mating Ritual's second EP of the year, Fall Collection '16 on October 7th. Boasting 5 new tracks, the collection pushes the boundaries of Lawhon's ever recognizable production and songwriting as he shows no signs of slowing down.

Hilly Dilly says "The Los Angeles artist's songwriting is once again at a level that really has no comparison", Buzzbands called him "more beefcake than cheesecake" and Neon Gold touted Mating Ritual as "a game changer".

About Lola's Room

An oasis below the Crystal

The little sister of the historic Crystal Ballroom, Lola's Room is located on the second floor, directly below the Crystal. If you're a fan of DJ'd dance events, raging local rock showcases or intimate seated performances, then take a moment and bookmark this page.

The navigation menu at left is your roadmap to Lola's Room and the other offerings at the corner of 14th & Burnside. Check out what's coming up on the Events Calendar, let us host your next party or simply investigate our brewery, artwork and history.

A night at Lola's Room should always include a stop by Ringlers Pub or Ringlers Annex, where the vibe will fit your mood -- great pub fare, handcrafted beverages, engaging conversation, a good pool game, a rowdy party or a groovy DJ in a dimmed setting.

Never stop exploring! This website is a continual work in progress, and will develop over time. Watch for photo tours, sound samples from upcoming acts and much more. Meanwhile, be our guest, wander and enjoy!

Looking for your Crystal Ballroom and/or Lola's Room Passport Stamps?

A Crystal Ballroom, Lola’s Room & Crystal Brewery Tour occurs daily at 2 p.m. - meet at Ringlers Pub (street level below the Crystal Ballroom.) The tour takes about half an hour to complete. Any questions may be directed to the Crystal box office, 503-225-0047.

If you cannot make the tour, stamps for the Crystal Ballroom and Lola’s Room are also available when you see a show. The shows can be ticketed or free – as long as you’re attending an event in the venue, you can get that room’s stamp. Please note that if you’re attending an event in the Crystal Ballroom, you will need to attend a separate event in Lola’s Room to get the Lola’s stamp and vice versa. Stamps are always exclusively available in their own venue. 
Please note: Due to private events, concert setup needs and brewers’ schedules, not all spaces are guaranteed to be available to tour daily, but our staff will give it our best shot and show you the spaces that we can.
