I had lunch today with my old friend, Bay Dariz, who is the guitarist of the talented L.A. Band, Some Hear Explosions. Bay and his bandmate Amber Leigh are both from Milwaukee, and will play an acoustic show Sunday at Club Anything.
It's always great to catch up with a "local guy done good," and I do my best to check the band out whenever they're in town.
You should, too.
The last time I heard these guys was at Summerfest last year, and I can vouch for how good they sound. Hearing them play "unplugged" should be a nice treat.
The show kicks off at 7 p.m. and also features an acoustic set from Anna Bohn and Adam Didier of OncetheSun and The Light Asylum, and Mark Allen of My Mourning Belle. Tickets are $5 at the door.
Hope to see you there!
