East L.A. meets East Atlanta as Thee Commons take the stage, though listeners would be hard-pressed to find a sound quite like theirs in either city. Self-described as “psychedelic cumbia-punk,” the group pairs surf-rock guitar riffs with infectious Afro-Latin grooves, mixing in saxophone and raspy Spanglish vocals for extra flavor. They’ve released a slew of albums and EPs through the high-profile Burger Records, and L.A. Weekly describes their live show as “fearless, confident, and ready to go off-script at a moment’s inspiration.” On Tues., July 12, Thee Commons will get every butt moving in the pit, regardless of background.
