Los Angeles-based PAPA has been quickly building a following after releasing an EP titled A Good Woman is Hard to Find less than a year ago.
That showed Friday at San Francisco’s Outside Lands music festival, as a solid crowd assembled at the Twin Peaks stage to see the Darren Weiss- and Danny Presant-led band.
The quartet has apparently been working on some new tunes, as a song called “Young Rut” that will appear on a forthcoming full-length album made the setlist.
The more-familiar songs played included “Let’s Make You Pregnant,” a particularly fiery version of “The Collector” and “I Am the Lion King,” the latter of which closed with Weiss jumping out from behind his drum kit to slap high-fives with the first row of fans.
It was PAPA’s first of three shows on Friday, and this after playing a pre-Outside Lands event Thursday night with Of Monsters and Men.
The guys were also scheduled to perform sets at the AT&T Lounge and Stub Hub Tent.
Judging by their following as one of Outside Lands’ first shows, the more shows the better.
