Moshing, stage diving and crowd surfing brought couples together as The Frights helped celebrate Valentine’s Day with flowers and bodies flying about the El Rey Theatre. The Frights always deliver some interesting covers. This night was all about Sublime’s “April 29, 1992” and Smashmouth’s “All Star.” As we cleared the venue, all that was left were broken hearts, lost shoes, and discarded undergarments.
Most of the crowd wanted The Buttertones to be theirs as lead singer Richard Araiza assured the lonely hearts in the crowd that being single on Valentine’s Day is alright. LA’s finest quintet rocked the house with their smooth and enigmatic tunes. Catch them at The Glass House with Shannon and The Claims February 25th.
