On Thursday during the day I ran back and forth between places.Reuben and the Dark happened to be playing the Arts & Crafts Pop Up when I came in. Reuben Bollock kept up his on stage banter in between their folksy tunes. The band is so tight, perfectly balancing Bollock’s vocals with their accompanying harmonies and rhythms.
After getting some food and seeing some other bands elsewhere, I popped in for PUP, the recently name-changed Topanga. Despite being in a gallery the group let their pop-punk energy surface.
