Congratulations to West Palm Beach's Lavola, the band chosen to join Against Me! and the Henry Clay People as support for the Silversun Pickups' performance June 16 at the Sunset Cove Amphitheatre in Boca Raton. The West Palm Beach trio's enormous, bombastic melodies proved to impress the majority of the crowd. In attendance were the AEG Live folks, the Honeycomb's Steve Rullman, Lavola manager Bradford Schmidt, Sweet Bronco's Chris Horgan and Jessica Glisson, Blond Fuzz's Jordan Cruz and Dave Barnard, and dozens of other local musicians and fans. Photographer Chris Bellus could tell what was up the moment the show was over.
Silversun Pickups fans will enjoy Julian Cires' fierce and wide-ranging
vocal styles and his guitar pyrotechnics as well as the energetic
support from bassist Matt Hanser and drummer Weinthal. The three
mop-headed musicians threw themselves around Propaganda's stage without
letting up Wednesday night, and it's that commitment to the stage that
will carry them to bigger slots in the future.
Need another shot of Lavola before next week? We''ll have more
information on their gig with Blond Fuzz this Saturday at Respectable
Street coming soon.
