It has been a pretty good year for local psy-punk trio Prettiest Eyes that included an appearance at Desert Daze and now the release of their second album Pools, which they celebrated at The Echo. The latin lovers put on a pretty wild show, starting off with the chaotic tune “Don’t Call.” Lead singer Pachy delivered cathartic vocals on songs like “Untitled” that made us want to sing right along with him. Keyboardist Paco Casanova played cheery melodies on “Dandy” and made unearthly sounds all night. Marcos wielded his axe like a weapon, especially on “Prance” with its broodingly dangerous bass lines. Towards the end of the set, Pachy stepped away from his drum set and jumped in the crowd for a bit of loving.
