Hey Oxford, two of our favorite bands are playing at Proud Larry's on Tuesday 10/6. WAVVES (signed to MS label Fat Possum) began as the psyched out bedroom project of San Diegan Nathan Williams, whose hooky thrash-pop was unfortunately overshadowed by overblown gossip (fights, drugs, meltdowns, etc) on music blogs this year. The live show now features the amazing drum stylings of HELLA's Zach Hill (dude shreds), who recently contributed to the excellently epic 6-minute track "Cool Jumper."
Come early to watch openers GANGLIANS from Sacramento roll out the lo-fi psych-pop w/ awesome Beach Boys harmonies. Their album Monster Head Room on Woodsist is one of our 2k9 favorites for sure. Tickets are $7. Show starts at 9 pm.
