Los Angeles indie rock band Local Natives have released three acclaimed albums, and vocalist and keyboardist Kelcey Ayer remains a critical component of the band’s infectious sound. He’s also gone solo, however, and he visited DC9 on Dec. 6 as Jaws of Love to perform songs from the project’s debut album, Tasha Sits Close to the Piano. Parklife DC’s Isaiah Hattix snapped pix of Jaws of Love in concert.
You may already know Kelcey Ayer as a vocalist and pianist for Local Natives. Kelcey, however, released his debut solo album, Tasha Sits Close to the Piano, under the moniker Jaws of Love via K-Rizzla Records/House Arrest in September. He’s on tour to support the album, and he plays tonight, Dec. 6, at DC9.
In his premiere solo outing, Andrew Savage of Parquet Courts was everything you would like him to be — a calm, cool, and collected urban cowboy with a wry wit and a passion for guitar.
The self-proclaimed A. Savage and his band also presented a few surprises to a very full house at DC9 on Nov. 10, alongside impressive songs from his solo debut album Thawing Dawn.
