Club Foxes, the new rock ‘n’ roll night hosted by Foxes Magazine, kicked off at Resident last Thursday with performances from Death Valley Girls, Wild Wing, Pally, and Lo-Pie DJs.
This first edition of Club Foxes, hosted by the magazine’s editors-in-chief Julian and Tina de la Celle, called for a night of rock’n’roll. Upon entering Resident—it was my first time walking in to the newly opened, Arts District live-music venue—we could hear Pally closing out his set before we got a chance to properly step inside.
Next up were our favorite country punks, Wild Wing. With their bass player Theo Cohn out of town, they had Misha from SadGirl/Walter filling in—literally—he was dressed from head to toe in Theo’s actual clothes. With a crazy amount of energy, they ripped through both of their new singles “Underground Heaven” and “Green Reaper” in no time.
Then the venue started to swell up as soon as Death Valley Girls took the stage, their first show in months, and also, our first time seeing them since adding Nicole Smith to the lineup. Putting on a heavy bout of 60s-tinged garage rock, Bonnie and the gang whipped up the crowd into a frenzy of excitement. And on that note, we’ll be looking forward to the next edition of Club Foxes.
