So when Now, Now released a new song after being in the low for a few years, I couldn’t stop listening to it. I’m pretty sure that I’ve played “SGL” more than a thousand times since it was put out on their Soundcloud page. Shortly after that, the band announced a short tour across the country and my excitement went through the roof.
The tour was on its final 2 shows when it hit Los Angeles at The Echo. The show consisted of Argentina’s Las Pinas and fellow Minnesotans, Dem Yuut, who some members served as Now, Now’s touring band.
Las Pinas started the night off with their mix of surf rock and punk tunes that was definitely the perfect mood setter. Following them were the chill jams of Dem Yuut.
Now, Now didn’t waste anytime playing the hits, as well as some new songs. Unfortunately, it was an early show so the band’s set was time constrained but this was definitely the comeback that a lot of the fans have been anticipating.
And speaking of anticipating, I am anticipating this new Now, Now record and you should too.
