Grouplove drummer Ryan Rabin was born and raised in LA, and says the city is responsible for shaping everything in his life, including, of course, his music. The band’s first gig was at El Cid in Silver Lake where Rabin still resides. The ‘70s-style indie-pop group will release their next album Big Mess on September 9.
