LIVE REVIEW: Bootstraps Los Angeles, CA

e9aee850b747e072a2ccfbce2f3e79bbAfter facing the hell that is Los Angeles traffic, the site of the dimly lite Troubadour sign at the peak of Santa Monica Boulevard was a welcomed one on July 17th. I really did not have any expectations going into the show for five piece folk-rockers Bootstraps, I heard a couple tracks and was intrigued by their sound enough to agree to cover the show. Within their released music, it was refreshing to hear a band that did not have a electronic beat or excessive use of auto tune, as the LA natives make a conscious effort to stay close to the roots of music.

To my surprise their show was part of the KROQ local showcases, with three other additional acts sharing the bill, including Robert Francis & The Night Tide closing the evening. To kind of explain, this band has a handful of performances under their belt, and most bands within KROQ’s showcases are pretty seasoned. Now I was really interested to see how this band would take the stage.
