Long Beach natives Gestapo Khazi
are halfway through their month-long residency at Five Star Bar in downtown Los Angeles. With a slew of EPs and seven inches under their belts, the guys recently released their first full-length album, The Jewel of the Land
. The flier for their show makes them seem scarier than they really are, because in truth, as they've told the Weekly before
, "We just try to connect with people and fuck shit up."
The foursome produces fast frantic punk rock with a touch of surf. Their music has often been compared to be a hybrid of The Wipers and Dick Dale.
Gestapo Khazi will play again this Friday along with other locals, The Grand Elegance, The Vivids, Cigarette Bums and Mania.
