Wulf Bane

La Cave

It’s too straight ahead to be metal, but packs far too much testosterone to have the word “indie” anywhere near it. However, somewhere deep inside Wulf Bane’s tough-guy savagery lurks a monster familiar to fans of the grunge hey-day. Whether it’s their vague, angst-ridden songs of revolution, pummeling power chords or the ability to genre-hop like they just don’t give a fuck, this Costa Mesa/Huntington Beach quartet brings sharp-toothed, hard rock nostalgia to nearly every song they’ve got. And apparently La Cave digs it—they’ve been rocking the hidden watering hole for a solid three weeks now as resident guests. This week, they’re bringing along fellow Huntington Beach rockers Frankie Doll and the Broken Toys for a night that’s sure to stir up as much HB pride and ass-kickage as you’re going to find on a Monday. We advise you to bring a bandana. Got sleeves on your shirt? Rip those suckers off and you’re good to go.
Mondays, 10 p.m. Starts: Aug. 17. Continues through Aug. 24, 2009
