"I’m Not Sorry" by Papa

1398167_10153444436365584_769935052_oFriends since their childhood in Encino, drummer/vocalist Darren Weiss (formerly of Girls) and bassist Danny Presant formed PAPA while still college students in New York City. Now based back home, the duo released their debut full-length Tender Madness (Loma Vista) last year replete with heartland rock anthems rooted in blues-pop (a la Cold War Kids, The KillersSam’s Town).

PAPA will next perform at The Echo tonight along with Hindu Pirates and Cillie Barnes.
