I didn’t realize how much of an accomplishment “joining the gang” was until Nick, bassist for this gritty pop punk band, hit me with “Yeah, Eden, you’re totally in the Lysolgang.” I mean, I never aspired to be in a gang, but the title makes me seem pretty badass and the music is great, so I’ll just keep it up and hope my mother doesn’t read this column and send me an angry text about my newly acquired interest in gang activities.
The purpose of Lysolgang isn’t anything bad, though—everyone just hugs each other and listens to each others’ bands—which is pretty cool because I love them all as people. And their band frickin’ rocks.
Give these guys a listen, but if you live in the L.A. area, do your best to see them play a show. The best part about Lysolgang is that they have fun on stage and they play a cover of “Get Low” by Lil Jon & East Side Boyz that has everyone on their feet dancing and singing along. Then, of course, Pat falls down and everyone laughs. You can’t help but laugh with them! Do yourself a favor and just trust me on this one; it’s a good time.
