“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).

And to prove their songs were truly made to be experienced live, the duo recently released the live EP Tender Madness Sessions for free. Here’s a video of them performing “Put Me To Work” mostly at the El Rey Theatre:

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