We used to go to trade shows to drink, schmooze, get free stuff and attempt to get industry money, but ever since the Agenda show started, it’s really turned into a great place to see bands (and do the above). Our friends at Brixton have been relentless with booking sick bands and packing tiny dive bars with the dark-eyed girls with red lips and polka dot onesies during Agenda. So during this most recent show, we used it as an opportunity to talk with Chad Ubovich of Meatbodies before his set at Alex’s Bar in Long Beach and ended up head banging and drinking tons of Stellas with our interns. If you’re a fan of Ty Segall and/or Fuzz or distortion or head banging or anything I mentioned above, you’re going to dig this.
