SoCal-based duo Mapache came to the Bandsintown HQ last Thursday night, and we couldn’t have been more grateful to experience their raw live show up close and personal. Longtime friends since high school, Clay Finch and Sam Balsucci had their signature harmonies and unrivaled guitar skills on full display for the crowd.
The energy was high, as the two-piece was coming off a magnificent set at Brooklyn Steel the night before with fellow LA natives Allah-Las. Mapache showcased their west coast roots through a genre-spanning set list, featuring tracks like “Follow You Down” and “Aquellos Ojos Verdes.” At one point, the band asked the audience to shout out the name of their pup as a seamless transition to their new, unreleased single “I Love My Dog.” To make the night even more special, it was Sam’s birthday and we all had a ball celebrating and singing him well wishes!
