Preview: Long Beach neo-new wavers to play Schine with lone lead-singer.

In 2007 three dudes from Long Beach began making music. Again.

Singer-guitarist David Quon, bass player Derek VanHeule, and drummer Nathan Warkentin had been playing together in various formations for almost a decade, but this new venture was simpler and more organic than anything they’d done before. 

“The previous band we were playing in had kind of fizzled out and we thought that we were going to put music aside for a while,” said Quon. “But I’d had some ideas and we sort of started creating again; it was really fresh and easy.”
