Looking for a weekend pick-me-up? Long Beach band We Barbarians might be just the ticket. With a sound featuring the catchiness of the Killers mixed with the percussive edginess of Jesse Malin's solo project, Long Beach band We Barbarians should make for a good Saturday night diversion. As an added bonus, they'll be sharing the stage with another Long Beach staple, Deep Sea Diver. The dreamy indie-pop band features singer Jessica Dobson whose work as a musician-for-hire has found her touring with such acts as the Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs and Beck.
