AATMA & Barber Pres. RAYS + special guests
July 17, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm£5.00
There’s a certain excitement that hits you when a band seemingly comes out of nowhere to blow you away, a tingle that starts behind the ears & moves down your spine forcing your feet to move. Oakland, CA’s RAYS didn’t come out of nowhere, but they’re sure to make your body herk & jerk.
Rays formed in the fertile crescent of the California Bay Area, a hotbed of musical growth in the past decade, and Rays’ members pull not only from that recent miasma but also from a wealth of Bay Area musical history. You Can Get There From Here represents a turning point for the band, angling their scrappy, post-punk fury into a more refined & melodic pop sensibility, drawing inspiration from UK DIY pop & punk like Dolly Mixture, Cleaners From Venus, Television Personalities & more.
