LAYNE at The Bootleg Theater - 6.23.16

words + photos by Joe Cortez

Hometown heroes LAYNE stopped by LA's Bootleg Theater on Thursday night, June 23, opening up for Australia's Cub Sport. The band, fronted by vocalist Layne Putnam, had recently debuted their new music video for the track "Good" via Fuse (view here) and has a new EP, "The Black Hills," coming later this year.

Don't let the dystopian vibe and black attire fool you: LAYNE is a lot of fun to watch live. Putnam and company have a real knack for crafting remarkably catchy pop gems that manage to linger long after the music's faded. I was especially taken with Putnam's infectious charisma. Check out my photos from the night below and for more on LAYNE, be sure to visit and like LAYNE on Facebook.
