Event Details

San Francisco indie-rock quartet Hot Flash Heat Wave rose to prominence in the Bay Area music scene in
2015 with the release of their 'Gutter Girl' music video, from their debut album Neapolitan, which was uploaded
to YouTube and eventually made its way to the front page of reddit. Their versatile sound, at times reminiscent
of golden 60s, power pop, dream pop, post-punk and indie rock, demonstrates a dynamic range of songwriting
prowess centered around consistently infectious, sun-soaked melodies and guitar hooks. HFHW formed in
Davis, California as a noise collaboration between Adam Abildgaard and Nick Duffy in 2010, expanding to a full
band when bassist Ted Davis and guitarist Nathaniel Blum joined the group in the following years. Renouncing
the traditional front-manned format of most contemporary bands, the four instead each contribute songs and
share the lead. With the release of their sophomore album, Soaked, accompanied by a string of creative self-
produced music videos in 2017, the group embarked on its first nationwide tour. Their first single, 'Bye Bye
Baby', appeared on Canada's Viral 50 Spotify playlist. In 2017, HFHW released their sophomore
album Soaked with OIM Records, which charted on college radio in the U.S. The band just finished
up a national tour and SXSW visit with No Vacation to promote their new single 'Glo Ride' - a song released in
collaboration with Broken Ent. Hot Flash Heat Wave will continue to release music and new videos throughout
