CAUGHT LIVE: THE SOFT PACK
LA-by-way-of-San Diego garage-soaked foursome The Soft Pack have made one hell of a debut- (well as their current namesake as The bullet-holed Muslims LP came out in '08). In support of their Kemado Records-released self-titled album, the band played (I'm sure you heard) ten shows in one day (click that link for great video coverage). Starting at 10A.M. and jaunting all across LA; from Highland Park to Long Beach, Downey and Hollywood, the band played house shows ("Kevin from Crystal Antler's Dad's house"), backyards, art galleries, record stores and on the beach. I attempted to make multiple shows, and you'd think that a Saturday morning show is totally doable the night before, but come morning time, 10 A.M. is actually quite early for some rock and roll, so instead I made it to their 8th show at Hollywood's (fantastic) Vacation Vinyl.
