San Diego's Wavves took the stage in the inaugural event of this season’s 4 O'clock Fridays at the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club. Despite playing in front of one of the smallest crowds in the events history, the trio treated their fans to a drunken, rowdy, and often uneven show, which incorporated favorites such as "King of the Beach" and "Bug."
Obviously inebriated, the band vomited onstage and sometimes forgot how to play their instruments. Yet, frontman Nathan Williams managed to form an alliance with the crowd because of his humor and set full of catchy SoCal rock and roll.
The local performance for the international hits comes during a break from recording new music and was a rare local showcase that allowed San Diego fans an opportunity to see the band perform in a large venue. After their stage antics, it is doubtful that another opportunity will come anytime soon. However, if you enjoy the party-out-of-bounds atmosphere of good old rock and roll, then Wavves is a band worth catching.
