THE DREAM SYNDICATE + FORD MADOX FORD @ THE TROUBADOUR

April 22nd, 2018

It is almost criminal to hear a band and wonder how the hell they haven't been more commercially successful or how do not more people know about this band? This is definitely the case with The Dream Syndicate-a Los Angeles band that was established in the 80s, reunited in 2012 and after 30 years, has a new album out, How Did I Find Myself Here?. Granted, the average age at The Troubadour show was about 50. While tuning his guitar, Steve Wynn was in the middle of telling a story about nearby restaurant Dan Tana's when a man passed out on the floor. People called for medics. Luckily, he ended up staying for the show.

Another fine Localchella show went down at The Fonda Theatre as British quartet Django Django treated us with a very special show. They brought the same energy and creativity to a tad scaled down number of fans. They are touring in support of their latest creation Marble Skies with singles “Tic Tac Toe” and "In Your Beat."
