Week In Rock: The Rapture, Nite Jewel, Blue Giant, Pacific Hurt
This week NYC-based dance-punk trio the Rapture will be headlining Sean Carlson's ever-so-famous Fuck Yeah Fest—now in its seventh year—which is set to take place in Los Angeles State Historic Park. Local electronic chanteuse Nite Jewel, who recently released a new EP entitled Am I Real?, is poised to grace the Troubadour with none other than recent collaborators Teen Inc. in tow. Portland-based alt-rock-leaning outfit Blue Giant, which is of course a splinter of celebrated indie pop act Viva Voce, will be warming up the stage at Spaceland for Nashville's own rock troubadour Bobby Bare Jr.. And, lastly, Pacific Hurt, formerly known as Santa Ana-based indie rockers Aushua, will be taking on the Troubadour with San Diegan buzz band LESANDS, LA-by-way-of-Glasgow retro 50s/60s pop outfit Neverever and folk-infused indie rock outfit Mississippi Man.
