Many artists have made their Los Angeles debuts at the historic Troubadour in West Hollywood, California, or at least added to its rich array of legendary moments in music. FAULT favorite, Yuck, played their third Los Angeles show there last Saturday, July 30th, to a packed room of fans who energetically bobbed to every melody and sung every lyric. Crowd favorites were “Rubber,” “Suicide Policeman,” “Holing Out,” “Georgia,” and their latest single, “Milkshake.” Unknown Mortal Orchestra, an up-and-coming indie-rock trio with a gem of a debut album, opened for Yuck with an unlit stage and a mix of hard rock and harmonious pop songs, that were refreshingly honest and well-performed. For a place that hosted Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, and Janis Joplin at memorable points in their music careers, the Troubadour’s hosting of Yuck was no exception in showcasing an excellent band transforming the indie and rock musical landscapes.
