If you’ve been on the fence about going to any of the great shows this week and next, here’s something to help you make those tough life decisions. These opening acts have caught our
eyes ears. Apparently, this week’s theme is girls with pink hair. In some cases, these bands alone are totally worth the ticket price. We’re coming early, and so should you.
Ghost Beach have taken their 80s influences, warped them, and retooled them to create a sound that is anything but gimmicky. What’s better than sweet, crooning love songs that you can dance to?
White Lung are a punk group from Vancouver with some of the best melodies you’ll hear this summer. With quick comparisons to Pretty Girls Make Graves, this almost entirely girl-group will most likely be headlining the next time they’re in town, so get on it.
Fidlar are one of the few West Coast bands that have been able to do something different with the beach punk/brat punk aesthetic that everyone else is trying so desperately to nail. Ten times more aggressive than Wavves, catching their set is the perfect way to warm up for this sold out show.http://youtu.be/BMwB-V2yJsQ
This Virginia trio is here to melt your face off. Or rather, to throw you into saccarine vocals before melting your face off, and then back again. Eternal Summers nail the fusion of the two, and maintain warm vibes the entire time.
With a new album out June 4, SPLASHH is a bright young band with an even brighter future. Formed only a few years ago by Toto Vivian and Sasha Carlson, they’re a welcome addition to any summer soundtrack with their fuzzed out, hazy arrangements.
We saw Hunters open for A Place to Bury Strangers and we’ve been smitten ever since. The Brooklyn garage outfit returns again to make you fall in love with their jarring sounds.
Now tell us, who do you think we should come early for?
