AUGUST 8 – GARDENS & VILLA
Gardens & Villa are an indie rock band from Santa Barbara, California. They formed following the collapse of a noisier post-punk band and a hitch-hiking journey up the west coast. The name is pulled from the location of their house on Villa Street, and the property’s lovely garden to which they tend. The music they make is very much connected to the coastal city they call home — the stony bike rides, dance parties, a scene free of judgment. The band refers to this Santa Barbara feeling as “coco vibes.”
