Hailing from Long Beach, The Fling play a poppier variety of the type of music that’s been the bread and butter for the Tractor Tavern since the beginning.
As strains of Americana and folk rock have become wildly popular in the past few years, the band joins the ranks of Dawes, The Romany Rye, Delta Spirit, Edward Sharpe… and many other Southern California bands who have embraced an often radio-friendly amalgamation of folk, country and occasionally psychedlic influences. All bands, who along with PacNW bands lead by current torch-bearers the Fleet Foxes, have revived and added their own stamp on the sound forged by the Laurel Canyon greats. Head over to Capitol Hill’s Chop Suey to see take in the experience for yourself and be sure to get there early for Deep Sea Diver.
7/28 The Fling / Deep Sea Diver @ Chop Suey :: 8 pm :: $10
