Have you ever went on Craigslist to get a good deal on something you need? Maybe you were looking for a roommate. How about someone to collaborate on music with? That's just what Ryan Merchant was looking for when he put an ad up on Craigslist in 2008. From Craigslist, he found what he was looking for in Sebu Simonian and they both now form Capital Cities.
Since their formation and release of their debut EP and single 'Safe and Sound' independently, this electro pop band has been making moves. The duo have been touring, playing sold out shows in their hometowns of Los Angeles and San Francisco and went on a small tour on the East Coast, even making it up to Canada. These guys already have an international loyal following. In November, after reaching #1 on a rock station in Peru, the band flew to Lima to play in front of 1000 fans.
Capital Cities will be at Saint Rocke in Hermosa Beach on September 8th with Fartbarf. Tickets are $13 and are available at saintrocke.com. 21+
