I ended up seeing Wavves in concert tonight, since I had a friend who had a spare ticket and gave it to me in exchange for a ride to the venue. It was a pretty enjoyable show. They were a lot punk-ier live than they come off in their recordings.
I really liked one of the opening bands a lot though. A group from the U.K. called Cheatahs. They play a kind of slacker indie rock that definitely worships at the temple of Dinosaur Jr, but was a lot more on the melancholic side. Awesome stuff, I’d highly recommend checking it out. They only have a few EPs out but they had them all pressed on a compilation LP for this tour, so I nabbed a copy.
