It goes without saying that Beach Slang have been having a difficult year. There was the well-publicized changes in band members in 2016, immediately followed by the first of two thefts where all of their gear was stolen. The second coming this past month in Seattle where their tour van was stolen. But it’s a testament to the spirit of Beach Slang that they not merely continue on or go through the motions, but they consistently play some of the best heart-on-your-sleeve-seat-of-your-pants rock ‘n’ roll every night. And at Black Cat, James Alex and Company poured out those hearts on Tuesday.
Last year, Beach Slang released A Loud Bash of Teenage Feelings, their second full-length album, and followed that up with I Made This for You, Vol. 2, their second covers mixtape, in February. Over that time, frontman James Alex and his new fashion punk bandmates toured incessantly, and they stage a return to Black Cat on Tuesday, Nov. 28, on their Drunk or Lust Tour 2017.
