Friday, Aug. 29: Tele Novella

The New Frontier Lounge

By Nikki McCoy on August 28, 2014

They say good things come in threes. Bandolier, People Under The Sun and The Echo Echo Echoes, are all celebrating a record release, a trifecta of "Hell yeah!" for Tacoma. But if you've seen your share of these bands, and think you'll just pick up their album online or at the next show, let me give you an extra reason to attend: Tela Novella. Hot in the midst of a huge tour, playing across the U.S. with bands such as Shannon and the Clams, The Hive Dwellers, Mount Whateverest and others, Tela Novella is the perfect band to round out the night. From Austin, Texas, the quartet nails that sweet psychedelic indie pop. Words I would use to describe Tela Novella: sweet, swanky, sexy. Words I would use to describe Friday night: Your ass, live music, New Frontier.

TELE NOVELLA, w/Bandolier, People Under The Sun, The Echo Echo Echoes, 9 p.m., The New Frontier Lounge, 301 E. 25th St., Tacoma, $5, 253.572.4020
