I’ve never seen the Troubadour so excited. Local Natives, about 4 months into the release of Gorilla Manor, are truly hometown heroes; the show was sold out well in advance. The crowd was alive with screams and yelling from the second soundcheck began until after the encore, where they were joined onstage by tour mates Suckers. The set was colorful and energetic, and they often turned the room into a fancy sing along jubilee.
