SYNTHESIS Band Of The Day Band You’ve Never Heard Of: Crystal Antlers

Long Beach, CA is home to more than just gangsta rap. Take Crystal Antlers for example: These five swell fellas rip the stage with a blend of post-punk, metal and dirty down Stooges soul. I shared a bill with these guys just a couple nights after their van had been stolen—fully loaded with gear—and they still performed with reckless abandon, as if a big “Fuck you” to car thieves abound. Check out their upcoming dates:
