Crippled Puppies at The Smell

14 Aug

Amelia from Crippled Puppies

Pretty much every new band I’ve seen in LA has fallen into the pop punk category, so I was immediately intrigued by this duo Friday night. The Ventura band Crippled Puppies normally plays as a trio, but this night they replaced the drummer with an Omnichord (never a bad move).

Before the show, I got to help my friend Tee videotape an interview with Jim Smith, the owner of The Smell, for our journalism class final project. He’s been running the place for 14 years with no plans to ever stop. It was quite inspiring to hear! All he wants to do is provide a safe, consistent place for bands, volunteers, sound engineers and music communities to flourish.
