For the first time since Bamboozle in 2010, Piebald graced us with their presence for a string of eleven shows on the east and west coasts. Their eighth show landed them in Los Angeles, California at the Echoplex. After Facial and Limbeck opened, the crowd packed up against the stage anticipating the nostalgia of the set to come. As soon as Piebald opened up with “Karate Chops For Everyone But Us,” the singalong began. The set reached an emotional peak as the delicate strums of “King of the Road” were drowned out by the audience’s heartfelt singing. Travis handed his guitar off to Facial’s guitarist Cam for the fan favorite “American Hearts” as Travis wrapped up enough slack of his microphone cable for him to jump into the crowd to kick off the song. Frantic strobe lights, fist-pumping, and crowd surfing ensued.
We captured some video of the performance and you can find that below.

The air conditioning is off but the crowd of The Echo is packed into the steamy 350-cap room in the middle of June eagerly anticipating the lineup to come. The 26th stop along a 5-week run of shows brings Free Throw, Prawn, and Tiny Moving Parts to LA for an evening of indie rock and emo twinkle-daddies.
Tiny Moving Parts is headlining in support of their latest release, Celebrate, a summer album chockfull of finger-tapping and shout-along anthems — the perfect remedy for a twenty-something’s 2016 quarter-life crisis. Free Throw and Prawn are the perfect compliments, with Prawn—ever wistful and dynamic—and Free Throw paying homage to the mid-to-late 90’s era of emo.
