FIDLAR + DUNE RATS + MIND MELD @ THE REGENT THEATRE
Photos and words by Chad Elder
It has been an incredible year for FIDLAR and Southern California music fans. From their show earlier this year at The Regent with Meatbodies and The Frights, to their “Too” record release party at The Well and their main stage killer performance at Beach Goth, and now finishing it off with two sold out nights headlining The Regent. With band and crew all dressed as Patrick Bateman from American Psycho, Zach, Brandon, Elvis, Max tore through a hits laden set of all the favorites from old and new, including “Cheap Beer,” “40oz on Repeat” and “Why Generation.”
Dune Rats is a super high energy surf rock three piece from Brisbane, Australia. They have supported FIDLAR through their North America tour and now head to Europe to headline some shows.
Mind Meld is quickly becoming the go-to opener for the skate, surf punk scene in LA. In the past five months, they have played with Meatbodies, Feels, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard and Kim and The Created, all at The Echo. With The Regent being a much bigger stage with a much bigger crowd, it won’t be long until they are headlining.
