When I lived alone in LA for a summer, I went to a lot of concerts by myself. It’s an easy city to feel isolated in and as trite and cliché as it sounds, being able to lose myself in crowds was a great distraction. I saw a lot of shitty bands in shitty bars, but at one mini-festival in Echo Park I was charmed by the Frights, a surf-punk band from San Diego. They played last, and brought screaming pop-punk and sonic sunshine to the dark bar. Last year the Frights released an album produced by FIDLAR’s Zac Carper, You Are Going to Hate This. At times, singer Mikey Carnevale channels the sweetness of early Rivers Cuomo (particularly on “Puppy Knuckles”), but for a surfy pop-punk band, the Frights manage to avoid any derivation from their predecessors.
