“It began in Redlands, CA. In a basement…” Hockey’s self-described beginning has lead to a colorful history of new wave indie bliss. With synth-friendly backdrops and ethereal, reverberating slap/strum acoustics, the band is the perfect soundtrack to summer. Their latest album, Wyeth Is, was just released this May, and in support of the effort, the band will be joined by LA locals Saint Motel (plus Florida / California duo SWIMM) for a show at El Rey Theatre on July 26.
Because summer is the season of giving and because I may have just made that up, we’d like provide you with the opportunity to enjoy this show for free! Two lucky readers will each win a pair of tickets just by commenting on this post! Make sure you include an email address you check often as that’s how we’ll get in contact with the winners, but if you don’t win, no worries. Tickets are still available for purchase. Good luck!
Hockey: Sunny Colman
