Live/Concert

Casual Sweetheart

When: Sat., June 6, 9 p.m. 2015

We’re still listening to Dark Summer, the five-song EP up on Bandcamp that local trio Casual Sweetheart recorded with Fred Thomas late last year. Their jams tend toward the darker side of garage pop; imagine the Dolly Mixture writing songs for the fight scene in a bikesploitation flick, and you’d not be far off. Casual Sweetheart opens for Cold Beat, a new-ish act from the Bay Area featuring Hannah Lew from Grass Widow. Word on the street is that they’re very good. Solo guitar shredder Shells opens up and we know for a fact that she is awesome.

Price: $8
