Over the Weekend: Iglu and Hartly at the Liquid Aloha Festival
Christopher Victorio/OC Weekly
The Hype: On the Saturday after the Weekly's 2010 Summer Guide hit the streets, it was obvious that sand, surf and sports were the three main criteria for our Liquid Aloha Festival near the Shorebreak Hotel in Huntington Beach. Prepared to shut down the festival in all their ripped jean, long-haired glory, Iglu and Hartly are still riding high on the bright, synthesizer waves of their 2009 debut, &Then Boom, garnering steady buzz on international radio stations and a recent performance at this year's Coachella. They seemed prepared to kick off summer with a coveted spot on the Liquid Aloha stage.
: Though I&H have made a few trips into Orange County over the past couple years, this was their first chance to play for an HB crowd. And despite the fact that they didn't seem to know where they were half the time during their performance, it actually went kinda well for them. Sauntering on stage with white, strategically ripped jeans, moccasins, a bandaged wrist and a ratty tank top, singer Jarvis Anderson's signature look was a perfect fit for his sunny surroundings. He and the band took the stage in a shady out cove sandwiched between the Shorebreak Hotel and a Sketchers store off Pacific Coast Highway and Fifth street.
