Wavves paddle out to uncharted musical waters at the Beacham


What seems like an unlikely pairing at first glance – fast-rising post-hardcore heroes Joyce Manor and Culture Abuse teaming with kings-of-the-beach Wavves for a tour – makes sense as an airing of possible futures for alternative rock. Wavves began in 2008 as the solo outlet for Californian Nathan Williams, with hotly tipped early releases coming off like the Wipers submerged in a fog of shoegaze haze and songs about goths in the sunlight. New album You’re Welcome, self-released after a disastrous dalliance with major label Warner Bros., sees Wavves pushing their sound farther out than ever before, taking in glam, new wave and pure pop clarity. Williams’ oft-mercurial nature (attempting to ban Trump supporters from shows on his last tour) and the soundclash on stage should make for a very intriguing night at the rock show.
