.IN PHOTOS: Punk Rockers Wavves Crash Felton Music Hall

It’s had been nearly two years since popular indie punk rockers Wavves had performed live in front of an audience. Like a pack of hungry lions, the L.A.-based group has been galloping across the country performing just about every night, feeding off their fans, fueled by that rock and roll energy that’s been dormant for so long. On Oct. 1, they hit the road hard, and they’ll keep going until Thanksgiving. 

Sunday, Nov. 14, brought Wavves to Santa Cruz County, where they made their Felton Music Hall debut. Good Times photog Tarmo Hannula was on hand to capture the group’s beautiful and infectious fury. 

Los Angeles-based openers, Cuffed Up, delivered polished punk rock highlighted by smoking lead guitar and vocals.
Wavves’ frontman Nathan Williams hypnotizes the audience.
Bassist Stephen Pope’s crop of hair follows the direction of the music.
That symbiotic energy flows back and forth between the band and the audience. Check out where Wavves perform next.
