LAKRA - OLD AND NEW DEMO
These past 2 weeks have been pretty hectic. Texas was a blast and incredibly rainy, and except for falling in a ditch, it was a great time had by all! Now back to the realities of work and everyday life. We can't all be on an endless vacation...
About 2 weeks before heading off to Texas, we played a show at a south central backyard. The show was a total throw back to when I was a young kid, with a bunch of young kids holding a 40oz Mickeys in one hand and 3 balloons in the other (if you've ever been to a street punk backyard in LA, you know what's up). To add to the feeling of being in 2005, I was surprised to see that LAKRA had played. I didn't get to see them play, as I had shown up late, but I did get to talking to one of the guys from the band. It turns out, they've just started playing again, which I think is pretty cool. The last time I saw this band play was probably about 6 years ago, and then they quietly disappeared. Anyways, it turns out that they've recently recorded a new demo and they were nice enough to send me their old demo along with the new one.
