We’re extremely excited to present The Mattson 2 for the first of 2 special Wax Ball Shows this month in Laguna Beach! They’re stopping through as part of their US Tour in support of their upcoming album ‘Agar’, to be released mid-September on Thomas Campbell’s Um Yeah Arts label.
Mattson 2 have been near and dear to us for the better part of the last decade, playing on stage with musicians like Ray Barbee and Tommy Guerrero. This Wax Ball Show they will take the stage as a duo, and give us some mind-melting surf jazz complete with loop pedals, and all around insanely dialed in sounds.
They’re upcoming album, Agar, is a step above the rest, having been recorded in single takes, live in studio, with very minimal overdubbing, think the famous Blue Note label of the jazz greats. Thomas Campbell describes it as a ‘musical kaleidoscope that brings to mind everyone from Charles Mingus and Chet Baker to the Smiths and the Jesus and Mary Chain’.
Join us this Friday, August 22nd for what should be one helluva show at the legendary Marine Room Tavern, here in Laguna Beach!
Show starts at 9pm. $5 Door and 21+
