Los Angeles psych grunge band Cobalt Cranes to play free Wilkes-Barre show on March 10
From a press release:
Wilkes-Barre arts and entertainment collective Get Cryptic has announced that California psych grunge band Cobalt Cranes will be stopping at The Other Side in Wilkes-Barre on Tuesday, March 10 as part of their current national tour in support of their new album, “Days in the Sun,” out now on Lolipop Records.
The 21+ event will be free. Doors open at 9 p.m.
Cobalt Cranes began in an apartment in Los Angeles when Tim Foley and Kate Betuel started making bedroom recordings. Rooted in ’60s garage rock and ’90s grunge, Tim and Kate recorded their first EP, “In Media Rez,” and began assembling a live band. They met guitarist Henry at LA underground venue The Smell, and hard-hitting drummer Brett after overhearing him play at an Echo Park rehearsal space.
The band released their debut album, “Head in the Clouds,” in 2013 on the Texas-based Dallas Distortion Music label. These first two releases caught the attention of LA Record, LA Weekly, The Fader, and more. The band spent much of 2013 and early 2014 on tour and began writing new songs in small motels and roadside diners on the road. Their new songs blend vintage California sounds with grungier raw elements. The band released their latest album, Days in the Sun,” on Echo Park’s Lolipop Records and call their new sound “California grunge.”
