10 Los Angeles Bands You Should Know

lalead

We've taken a look at the music from South Africa and New Zealand, and for this round of Bands You Should Know, we head back to the United States and have @JennsDrunk, our Los Angeles representative, put us on to 10 up-and-coming bands from her hometown, which happens to be one of the most important places in the world for the music industry. The city has a long history of cutting edge culture and style, and it shapes the sound of many West Coast bands today, if even in the most subtle ways. We've seen plenty of L.A. acts break from indie to mainstream, and there will most certainly be many more, so keep an ear out for L.A. and check out 10 Los Angeles Bands You Should Know.
