Months after John Dwyer and friends at Castle Face Records reintroduced The Herms to a new decade of listeners with the LP Drop Out Vol. 1, a collection of the band’s forgotten demos and tracks, the bedroom project is emerging once again to play a show at Bottom of the Hill on December 17. Originally born in Berkeley and now based in Los Angeles, the band is powered by the vocals and songwriting prowess of Matthew Lutz, who founded the project in the mid-2000s with a distinctive pop sound that’s equally scuzzy and fuzzy.
Joining The Herms will be San Francisco-based outfit Pow! and Oakland’s Warm Soda. According to front man and Fuzz City Records co-founder Matthew Melton, we can expect “a special performance by Warm Soda featuring the original line up.” No word on what this will entail, but with The Herms’ reunion fueling the good vibrations, Tuesday will be a special night indeed. So come out, come out and shake off the cold with some warm and weird pop music.
Warm Soda, The Herms, Pow!
