Whenever an L.A. band rolls into town, I get a strong urge to go and see them perform. It’s like a part of me desires the connection in order to curb the homesickness I occasionally get. Los Angeles natives, Bad Suns, performed at Brooklyn Steel in New York last Thursday. They began touring early this April to promote their new record, Mystic Truth, which was released on March 22. What was so great about the show was the energy that was radiated from the stage. I felt like I was at home. Continue Reading
