This week we’re teaming up with Bobby D at Two Boots in Bridgeport as Surf Nite! goes garage.
Come out to Two Boots on Thursday to welcome The Mystery Lights from California and The Villains from New Haven.
Hailing from Salinas, California (a/k/a “America’s Salad Bowl”), this neo-garage quartet hitches their music towards the psychedelic end of that mythical era, which means that they don’t have 20-minute drum solos (thank God) but that they do like weird imagery and are a little more brash in their sound, which are both pluses. And how are you gonna deny a band that’s on a label called Closet Trekkie, unless you’re a nerd hater?
The Villains site “UFOs, full moons, atomic relationships, reanimation, black holes, the spirit world, magic, mojo, bad vibes, gravedancing, incantations and stuff” as influences on their sound.
Here are the details:
THURSDAY, AUGUST 27
Surf Nite! at Two Boots with The Mystery Lights and The Villains
281 Fairfield Ave., Bridgeport, CT
9 p.m., $5
This is another great opportunity to get out and support the great stuff Bobby D is doing to promote original independent music in CT.
