The Los Angeles traffic gods were kind to me on this Thursday as I got to the festival grounds earlier than anticipated. I checked in and decided to walk around the various venues just to get an idea of what settings to use on my camera. I’m not a photographer. I’m just a dude who loves music and takes photos guerrilla style with a Sony Cybershot.
I walked into a room where a band named Wooster was playing. Rather, I was drawn in by their funky baseline. A California based band from Santa Cruz that describes themselves as a blend of Soul/Reggae/Rock … “[t]hink of Sublime after anger management, or No Doubt on soul serum.”
I could hear the “Sublime after anger management” description, but wasn’t sure about the “No Doubt on soul serum” one. Their website has them listed as a quintet, but when I saw them perform they were only a quartet. Their female vocalist wasn’t with them wasn’t performing with them, so I’m guessing I only really got a partial sense of what the band was capable of.
I liked what I heard, and followed them on Facebook to keep up with how their music evolves.
