Fun as all that globetrotting sounds, Transfer have finally returned to America’s Finest City. You can welcome the boys home on Thursday, April 21, when they play the latest edition of Fluxx Live.
Transfer will be joined by Rafter, whose eccentric, dancey tunes can always be counted on to keep local butts shaking. In January, he released Quiet Storm, a surprise album that added black metal to his otherwise brightly colored palette of influences.
Rounding out the San Diego trifecta, Republic of Letters will open the night with their radio-friendly rock. If you miss them on Thursday, you can catch them on April 25 at Soda Bar, where they’ll play with the UK band Brother.
As usual, this month’s Fluxx Live event will be hosted by the omnipresent Tim Pyles. Ikah Love, who was recently voted the Commune’s Local of the Month, will handle DJ duties. You can RSVP on the Facebook event page, and tickets can be purchased here.
