As a southern California native, Frankie Rose played a pivotal role in composing my musical landscape. I have sweet memories of driving up the coast to Los Angeles to see Dum Dum Girls or Vivian Girls play at the Echo, then taking the SATs the next day. Frankie Rose seemed like she was a member of every band back in the day; indeed, a versatile musician. But the sunshine and warmth weren’t always moments of complete joie de vivre but rather, languor and suffering.
Her latest album “Cage Tropical” is the outcome of catharsis after what seemed like a doomed sojourn in California. Her new album is reminiscent of Cocteau Twins and John Maus. This Thursday March 15th catch Frankie Rose play at Zone One at Elsewhere. If you’re into dreamy and expansive new wave music, then Frankie Rose will be a bumping time.
Alongside Frankie Rose, the indie-pop band Hideout, as well as punk-pop band Russian Baths, will perform. Surely, it will be a night of indie-pop revival, a night perhaps wrapped with jejune nostalgia but also a moment confirming that indie-pop shall never die.
