Though the ink has barely dried on this week's Locals Only, featuring the band Long Beach band Drums and Color, we can't help but
nudge you again to check out this band of Huntington Beach ex-pats. While in the midst of recording their upcoming, as-of-yet-untitled
album, they're also maintaining a steady stream of shows over the summer, full of
new material. We
even have a few extra comments and questions from the recent column that
landed on the cutting room floor.
Despite the fact that most of them are just under 21, songs like “To Be Happy” and and “Prodigal” (the latter is currently streaming on their MySpace) spark with mature indie pop song writing. At any rate, you'll probably be seeing their name around a lot more this summer. And since their gonna playing a free show at one of Costa Mesa's valued strip call conglomerates at 3 p.m. on Sunday, it worth adding to your list of things to do before Memorial Day. They'll be sharing the stage with L.A. folk rockers Bobby Pena and the Stowaways.
We played a show at the Yost last summer and we've really been wanting to play another Yost show, so we're looking into that.
