BB Live November Resident Band: The Frights: Week 2

This week our BB Live resident band, The Frights, serve up a love song, “All I Need”!

Its intense, fun, and it’ll make you feel allllllll the things. Tune in below!

BB Live: November Resident Band: The Frights: Week 1

“Time is the only thing that keeps bringing me down, because time is the beat of my life, and it’s all that I’ve found…”

Time can be overwhelmingly depressing to think about, and even our recent time change may have you down now that it gets dark at 4 o-freaking-clock, but lucky for you, our new badass resident band, surfy punk rockers, THE FRIGHTS sympathize. Put your eye and ear holes on “Afraid of the Dark” below! Good luck getting this tune out of your head…

Note, these dudes are currently on tour with FIDLAR, so if you want to see if they’ll be in your city any time soon, peep tour dates here: http://www.thefrights.com/tourshows.html

Bb Live: September Resident Band: TUFT: Week 2

Its Monday and we’ve got another killer track for you from this month’s BB Live resident band, TUFT! Put your ear (and eye) holes on “Sheep”! Listen hard to these lyrics, this one is especially beautifully written, and is easily my favorite TUFT tune to date. By the end I guarantee you’ll be singing along to, at very least, the catchy-as-hell chorus, “I am a sheep dressed like a wolf. Likeable enough to never get the truth. I am a sheep dressed like a wolf.”
