Ripple Field Report - Local Natives January 28, 2013 show at the Fonda Theater
Local Natives are an eminently talented, exciting, and promising LA product that the SoCal faithful should be truly proud of, and they have a future brighter than the garish marquees lighting up the environs of the Fonda around Hollywood Boulevard. This undeniable fact was abundantly evident as they closed out the evening with the anthemic "Sun Hands" with robust and scintillating authority, a stark contrast to the unfinished, anticlimactic vibe after the regular set terminated abruptly with Hummingbird’s “Bowery”. All told, one was left wishing to be able to time-travel ahead a few months to experience not just a merely pretty damn good concert but one elevated to the truly legendary.
