Kicked Out, Then You Kick Out the Jams
Upset is a new band fronted by Ali Koehler, former drummer of both Vivian Girls and Best Coast. She’s Gone is the band’s debut album, twelve tracks of straightforward no-frills garage pop punk. In a recent A.V. Club piece Marah Eakin describes the band as “equal parts That Dog and Veruca Salt” and yet this barely scratches the surface.

Thousands of people traveled from Denver and the surrounding area to the quiet town of Byers, Colorado. Camping had started the night before, the dedication and excitement surrounding Denver’s very first Riot Fest was clear. Driving toward the action, locals could be seen making the best out of the influx of people by charging the less expensive price of $10 for a spot further away from the festival.
On the West Coast, a thirty percent chance of rain usually translates to: cloudy with if-you-cross-your-fingers-it-will-rain weather. However, thirty percent chance of rain in the outskirts of Chicago means you don’t turn down your friend’s offer for that umbrella– you are going to get caught in a downpour. On day three of the music festival, Riot Fest fans in Chicago did their best to work with that what Mother Nature offered.
Best Coast will headline the Fonda Theatre on Monday, October 21st at a benefit gig supporting L.A. Animal Rescue.
$25 tickets will go on sale 9/28 (this Saturday) via AXS, so be sure to pick yours up on Saturday to help a great cause and take in a great gig from one of Southern California’s most popular bands!
For more information about the cause, visit L.A. Animal Rescue’s website.
