Hills Like Elephants threw a release party at the Casbah on Saturday, with an emphasis on the word “party.” The local synthpop band put on a sweaty, jubilant set in celebration of its newly pressed EP, Bedroom Colonies Vol. 1, which they gave away for free to attendees.
The five-piece was supported by an all-star San Diegan lineup that included an in-top-form Boy King, psych-rockers Wild Wild Wets, and one-man-band Jimmy Ruelas. Wild Wild Wets’ dim, projection-heavy set was unfortunately too dark to photograph, but we did take pictures of the rest of the bands for you. Take a gander at them below.
