PAPA at The Constellation Room - 12.6.15

words + photos by Joe Cortez

Local heroes PAPA stopped by Santa Ana's Constellation Room this past Sunday night as part of a brief Cali tour with a final night scheduled in Phoenix, AZ on December 10. The band is riding high on a wave of buzz following the recent release of the wonderfully strange video for the track "Hold On," with the promise of new music on the horizon.

PAPA is nothing if not infectiously fun. It's hard not to be won over by the band's knack for creating poptastic grooves or drummer/vocalist Darren Weiss' candid, off the cuff asides. Although a new album has yet to be announced officially, the band did treat fans in attendance to previews of tracks in the works throughout their set.

Be sure to check out my photos from Sunday night, also featuring opener Junk below. For more on PAPA, be sure to follow @PAPATHEBAND on Twitter and like PAPA on Facebook.
