On what would have been the night before the canceled 2018 FYF Fest (see you next year?), Car Seat Headrest instead played the Wiltern, their largest L.A. headline to date, and an all around fantastic performance going far to help solidify their ascendance as one of our best young bands.
While it’s well documented that the band is the brainchild of mastermind Will Toledo, CHS is very much a proper band today. On the current tour the core live four piece–Toledo (in full frontman singer mode rocking the mic sans guitar all night), Seth Dalby (bass), Andrew Katz (drums and Subway sandwich giveaway–you had to be there) and Ethan Ives (lead guitar)–are expended into a big, loud and tight seven-piece unit by Seattle’s Naked Giants (Gianni Aiello, Henry LaVallee, Grant Mullen), who themselves opened the show with a thoroughly entertaining storming rock power trio set of their own.
