THE RELATIONSHIP + GOLDEN STATE + WILDLING @ THE VIPER ROOM
Photos and words by Cortney Armitage
“And they said the strip is dying!” guitarist Nate Shaw (US Bombs) exclaimed comically throughout the set. He seemed as pleased as punch that the band The Relationship he started with Weezer guitarist, Brian Bell, had packed The Viper Room. Fans came out to celebrate the release of alt-pop-rockers new catchy 7″ single “Oh Allen” (via Burger Records). Rounding out the notable band trivia, drummer Anthony Burulicich played with The Bravery. The LA-based band seemed completely at ease and the tracks sounded wonderfully familiar, like how a new spin in a good loving connection can feel. We are excited for more.
LA’s Golden Stateopened and is back up and running with their new Bodysnatcher EP.
Another hometown band Wildling kicked off the evening. The alt pop band sounded awesome and the good vibes oozed off the stage, as the fun they had with each other was completely infectious.
