Los Angeles pop rock band Bad Suns has been on the road supporting their sophomore album Disappear Here since October of last year -- with support from COIN, QTY & HUNNY (on select dates). They made a stop on their Outskirts of Paradise tour Monday night with HUNNY at recordBar.

Fellow Californians and friends of the band, pop punk rockers HUNNY opened the show with their impressive blend of surf rock and pop punk. Although it was clear a lot of the crowd was new to the band, their more dedicated fans didn't hesitate to scream the lyrics along with the band. They played a range of tracks from both of their EPs Pain / Ache / Loving and Windows I -- including "July", "Shy" and "Vowels (And the Importance of Being Me)". Lead singer Jason's charm and jokes in between tracks kept the crowd laughing and engaged. Their sound perfectly set the tone for the night and got the crowd warmed up for Bad Suns.

Bad Suns hit the ground running performing the title track of their new album "Disappear Here" -- immediately demanding the attention of the sold out crowd. As the show continued, they dove deeper in their discography. Revisiting tracks from L&P including "We Move Like The Ocean", "Take My Love and Run", "Dancing On Quicksand", "Transpose" and "Sleep Paralysis" was a treat for older fans. About four tracks into the set, frontman Christo recalled the early days of the band: "Three years ago we played across the street at Czar Bar on our first headline tour. There was like ten people there......we made it across the street motherf*cker!", he exclaimed as the crowd burst into an explosive scream. Throughout the show he declared his love for KC and commended the crowd on their seemingly never-ending energy. For fans old and new, Bad Suns had something for everyone and solidified why they're one of the most talented and promising bands in alternative rock.
