Live Concert Photography: Froth with Versing at Elsewhere Rooftop 7/3/19

With the release of their first three albums, the Los Angeles-based noise rock trio, Froth — comprised of Joo-Joo Ashworth, Jeremy Katz and Cameron Allen —have developed a reputation for restless experimentation with forays into shoegaze, psych rock and post-punk. However, Duress, their Tomas Dolas co-produced fourth album, which was released earlier this year through Wichita Recordings finds the band boldly stepping out of the momentous shadows of their influences and crafting a sound wholly their own, a sound that manages to be unapologetically experimental yet accessible. In fact, the album’s material finds the band incorporating synthesizers, overdubs and drum machines, along with traditional rock instrumentation.

The members of the Los Angeles-based post-punk trio were on a lengthy tour to support Duress that included a July 3, 2019 stop at Elsewhere’s Rooftop that included the minimalist  Trans Europe Express-era KraftwerkLodger-era Bowie and Suicide-like “77.” Seattle-based indie rock quartet Versing opened the night. Check out photos from the show below.

IMG_0476   Opening the night was the Seattle-based quartet Versing. The act, which is comprised of Daniel Salas, Graham Baker, Kirby Lochner and Max Keyes, released their highly-anticipated full-length debut 10000 earlier this year through Hardly Art Records. From the Nirvana’s “Radio Friendly Unit Shifter,” and Thee Oh Sees-like “Offering” and the anthemic, post-punk leaning “Renew,” the members of Versing manage to effortlessly bounce back between 90s mosh pit friendly grunge and angular post punk.   IMG_0012
