A bay area favorite that will have you dancing around your dorm room.
Either still in high school or recently graduated, the members of Berkeley’s favorite rising band, Local Hero! have got something going. They have managed to take stories of the seemingly simple subject matter of high school life and tell them in ways that are not only fun, but thoughtful and creative. Few bands so young match Local Hero!’s sound; at first listen I assumed they were much older and had played together for years. Check out the rest of their full album, From Timid to Timbuktu (2012), and keep an eye out for when these Berkeley kids finally get their break; it’s going to happen.
