i hate to say it, but i’ve seen my fair-share of disappointing local shows during my 5-month stint here in LA. this city has so much hype coursing through it’s veins, it seems impossible that things that suck can actually have an audience here. but like everywhere on this grand planet, the bar is constantly lowered.
the bright-side of this reality is that when something is good, it’s REALLY, REALLY good. such was the case on monday night at spaceland when i witnessed the splendor of local natives. another silver lake gem, i do believe local natives are poised to command serious audience attention. in a big way.
