Southern California apparel line Brixton returns to Long Beach for another Agenda tradeshow afterparty at Alex’s Bar—this time a free set with two bands you probably won’t see for free much more. Bleached are the Clavin sisters (of Mika Miko) with a sound somewhere between the Leave Home Ramones and Stevie Nicks solo, which really means harmony and heartbreak delivered at high velocity. (Plus some Shop Assistants wall-of-guitar too.) And (Together) Pangea are newly signed to the storied UK label Harvest and prepping an album full of freaked-out teenage Descendents-meets-Troggs rock—how’s their song about being too drunk to cum go again? Oh yeah: "Tooooo drunk to cum!” This is a great chunk of LA punk as 2013 contained it—see it here now free, or from way at the back of some fest in the future.
