I stopped by to check out Party at the Moon Tower’s first show. They are a new band from the West Covina area. Lead guitarist, Xavier, used to be in a band called The Taliesin. Party at the Moon Tower is still trying to find a drummer so they played an almost acoustic set, or as my friend called it, “an acoutric set”. They were fun to watch and listen to, a mix of acoustic guitar with an electric guitar and bass done well on top of adoring vocals. Their sound was easy on the ear and beguiling, definitely a good start to an uprising band. As for their overall performance, I think they did a swell job for their first show. I wish them the best of luck with their new band, but I doubt they’ll really need it. I am looking forward to seeing them again and hearing their progression.

After Party at the Moon Tower finished their set, a band called Resa came up. I had never heard of them before, but just by looking at their equipment and hearing their sound check I knew I was in for something different. As soon as they started, I was not let down. Resa was so dissimilar to anything I (personally) have ever heard before. I liked it! They had a bassy sound but it was still up beat and charming. Throughout their set, I found myself tapping my toes to the beat with a smile on my face. The singer had a great vocal range while playing some passionate guitar riffs. The drummer and bassist both had their ways of keeping the rhythm but incorporating it their own. Resa really got down. As their set nearly ended they played a song that I especially liked called “Just a little bit”. You should check it out. For their last song the bassist traded his bass in for a guitar. It was great… still somewhat profound but more rhythm tic guitar. I really liked them and would definitely check them out again.
