Hidden Gem: Purdue Avenue *Raw energy Weezer/Sublime
I found out about Purdue Avenue after meeting their bassist Jon at a party. After listening to the first 10 seconds of the 1st track on their debut EP, I immediately started writing this post. Formed in January of 2009, Purdue Avenue is an alternative SoCal rock band based in LA whose music contains the raw energy of a young Weezer and Sublime. They released their debut EP, Alone At The Bar Each song is catchier than the next and even a first time listener finds himself singing along immediately. Stream and download their 5-track EP below. It's a MUST-DOWNLOAD! Make sure to like Purdue Avenue on facebook and attend their show at The Roxy on July 19 (tickets here).
