02.14: Massage plays free V-Day show at Highland Park Bowl's Indiepop Party

Forget the flowers, the candy, and the expensive gifts. Bring your date, your significant other, or yourself to Highland Park Bowl for a free show featuring LA's top jangle poppers Massage. Massage play a smattering of shows every year, and this performance at Highland Park Bowl -- free, by the way -- makes for your first opportunity to see the band in 2020. Joining Massage are San Francisco's Starry Eyed Cadet, as well as Dummy, an indie supergroup made up of members from Wildhoney and Expert Alterations. You may not find a cheaper or better V-Day event than this, so get your bowling arm and dancing legs ready and head to Highland Park Bowl on February 14th for a free night of fantastic music. Take a listen to the title track from Massage's 2018 LP Oh Boy below. - Will Sisskind

   

Massage announce debut LP, share new single "Lydia"

"Lydia" has a special significance for Massage. The snappy lead-off single off of their debut LP, Oh Boy, was first conceived almost four years ago when they still hadn't officially solidified as a band. The song's original output has the makings of a rock documentary montage, as they were all still figuring out their essence by simply experimenting and having fun. That finally brought upon the harmony-laden "Lydia," a subtle homage to writer Lydia Davis where their hooky songcraft amiably holds hands with their shabby pop charm. 

Oh Boy is out on July 27. Listen to "Lydia" below.
