Description

Brouwerij West’s monthly summer concert series, Popfuji, continues with its 4th indie music summer concert on Sunday, September 24rd from 12:00 p.m. – 8:00 pm. The September line-up features:

Caught a Ghost: Already influential in the music world with their songs featured in HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire”, Fox’s “Vampire Diaries” and CBS’s “The Blacklist”, the Los Angeles-based indie electro soul band classify their sound as a 21st-Century take on blue-eyed soul. Elements of their songwriting embody classic Motown and Stax/Volt arrangements while also being influenced by dubstep, 90s rap, and contemporary electronica.

Harty Har: Brothers Tyler and Shane Fogerty, sons of Creedence Clearwater Revival’s John Fogerty, have forged their own musical path along with bandmembers Will Van Santen, Jesse Wilson and Marcus Högsta. The group released their first single this year “Can’t Keep Waiting.” LA Weekly says, “(It) lands somewhere between Tame Impala and Sly & the Family Stone and gives a taste of what’s to come: sexy, crunchy riffs, caressed by analog production, and drums that roll and shake like the waves of the ocean.”

Sadgirl: The Los Angeles group was formed by Misha Lindes (guitar/vocals), Paul Caruso (drums) and Dakota Peterson (bass) along the Pacific coast before venturing into LA’s indie music scene. Indie music site Oh My Rockness’ called them “one of LA’s hardest working bands.” The lo-fi surf-wop trio has been making waves with songwriting that they define as a “twisted marriage between Roy Orbison and The Cramps (ordained by Link Wray).”

Bombón: The talented San Pedro-based trio Bombón is bringing their “surf rock and roll” talents back to Brouwerij West. Consisting of Angela Ramos, Paloma Bañuelos, and Jerico Campbell, the three ladies have re-envisioned the surf-rock genre, adding a dose of smart punk rock attitude. Razorcake Magazine described them as “[a] band that works on vastly different levels, yet comes together in a completely harmonious way,” while LA Record said “[they] ride the line between the charm of Beach Blanket Bingo and the soundtrack that might accompany Link Wray surfing on a coffin.”

The Gloomies: After the release of their first single, “LSD,” in 2015, Los Angeles-based The Gloomies released their first EP, The Blackout, which details the band’s different state of mind in moving away from Southern California beaches into the vast inland expanses of the state’s low country desert. The lead single “Bleached Out” personifies the band’s newfound spirit. Their music is a bit of Beach Boys meets Blondie as if directed by Lou Reed. “A lot of friends who heard ‘LSD’ first might be surprised by Blackout,” states lead singer Andy Craig. “But it was important to me that these songs come out now and together on this record. It felt right.” Since the release of “LSD,” The Gloomies have shared the stage with Hinds, Public Access TV, Day Wave, and recently played a month-long residency at San Diego’s Soda Bar where they received recognition from KCRW and NME.
