Local Natives is busy wrapping up its third LP and prepping for a world tour, but that won't stop the indie quintet from showing a little love to its Silver Lake roots.
The Los Angeles-based band is playing a free show tonight, July 7, on a Silver Lake rooftop. The band will be performing atop a single story home at 3400 Sunset Boulevard (at the corner of Micheltorena Street) that's been painted blue with the cover art from their upcoming album Sunlit Youth.
The free concert starts at 7pm and there's no cap on admission. If you can't make it, the band will be streaming the show on their Facebook page.
The location is key to the band's history—the house served as a rehearsal space that the band practically lived in during the recording of their first two albums. Their lease runs out in August, so the band is saying farewell to the space with this free show, complete with interior and exterior mural work by artist Fernando Corona.
Sunlit Youth comes out Sept 9, and Local Natives will be playing a full-fledged show at the Greek Theatre the week after—tickets include a download of the album. Make sure to check out our backstage photos from Local Natives' last show at the Greek, and in the meantime, watch the very LA video for one of their latest tracks, "Villainy," a slightly more electronic take on the band's soaring, sweetly melodic and slightly mournful alt pop.
