For Your Eyes & Ears: Torches & The Lonely Wild

The Casbah is presenting a show tonight (Wednesday) at Soda Bar featuring two of L.A.'s best emerging bands. Since this is a co-headline show, allow me to introduce the bands alphabetically. The Lonely Wild have played San Diego many times and never fail to disappoint. The quintet released their initial full length, The Sun As It Comes, back in April. The album is a result of all the hard work the group put in since forming in 2010. Led by Northern California transplant Andrew Carroll, the songs reveal raw emotion and gentleness throughout the album. This rare combination of energy transforms well in the live setting.

Watch a video of Buried in the Murder below.

The other headline band is Torches, the brainchild of Azad Cheikosman and Eric Fabbro. They released their first LP back in 2012 titled Heads Full of Rust, featuring lush gutars and heavy drums creating a somewhat darker sound which is very accessible. Torches are no strangers to San Diego, having played at various venues here in the past. They recently came out with an EP, If The People Stare.

Watch a video of When You Gonna ? below.

This promises to be one night of great music from bands happy to drive south on Interste 5 and please the fans in San Diego. Tickets ($12) will be available at the door. This is a 21+ event.
