The Frights

San Diego garage-surf-punk band The Frights released their Dangerbird Records debut, You Are Going To Hate This, in early 2017, produced by FIDLAR’s Zac Carper. The label also captured footage of the band making the album, which they compressed into a mini-doc of the same name. Known for their exuberant live shows, You Are Going To Hate This, perfectly captures their unrestrained energy and dirty doo-wop sound.

Pacific Shores Bar
Under-the-sea-themed dive bar which opened its doors the day before Pearl Harbor was bombed. Patrons love the extremely cheap drinks, kitschy decor, and old school jukebox which plays all the classics from country to punk.
