HALA at Metro Times Blowout

When: Sat., May 2, 9 p.m. 2015

Homemade, home-recorded pop from Ian Ruhala’s one man band. The songs are catchy and good, and they’re not a far cry from the likes of Mac Demarco and Man the Hunter. Hala began as a solo side project to the band Retro Specs, but now it’s stepping out into the spotlight for this Blowout show. halaband.bandcamp.com.
