Editor's Note: Fullerton rock four-piece Regrets & Brunettes are playing Thursdays this month at Gypsy Lounge in Lake Forest. Bassist/vocalist Robert Pavlovich shares his thoughts on last week's performance–and looks forward to today's.
It's only been a week, but I'm pretty sure this is a show that we'll all remember. Something we addressed before we started playing shows in support of our recently released debut full-length At Night You Love Me was about putting in extra effort in meeting more bands and trying to set up more interesting shows. In that respect, night two at Gypsy Lounge definitely met and exceeded any expectations we had of putting together quality lineups. All of the bands put on truly remarkable shows and they wound up making it a great night for everyone who attended.
Arrows got things started with an invitingly mellow and introspective sound. On stage they sported all the standard rock gear with the addition of a synth and a Mac, and singer/guitarist Austin Nicolai has a casual, self-deprecating stage demeanor. The growing crowd was definitely appreciating their easy on the ears, Smiths-inspired tunes. According to Nicolai, they're planning to start work on some new recordings–definitely interested to hear what they come up with in the studio.
