I'm not originally from Los Angeles, but I truly love Los Angeles. I love the sports teams. I know the words to Randy Newman's "We Love LA" by heart. I eaten 257 Dodger Dogs. I could go on and on.
Mostly, I love music from Los Angeles. And music from Los Angeles with videos shot around Los Angeles, the real Los Angeles, are even better.
I love the take: Afternoon's poppy song vs. finding optimism where there isn't much to be optimistic about. Maybe it's just the white guy in me, but that shit had me all like, "SAY YES! BROBRO broptimist!!! GYES!!!"
And those of you that know me how hard those broments are to come by. So thanks, Afternoons. Let me know next time you guys play the Satellite or some shit and I'll come spill my whiskey on myself in front of you guys.
And just for gits and shiggles... another video from Afternoons with white people dancing:
