NIGHT SCHOOL “Night School exists at the point where shoegaze, garage rock and doo wop collide. Citing influences from ’60s girl groups, this all-female Northern California band produces a dreamy sound punctuated by the hardness of garage rock. Alexandra Morte, of Whirr and Camera Shy, leads Night School.” ROSES “Bent guitar riffs with a romantic new-wave sheen.” MOANING
