Granted, this concert falls on New Year's Eve, but La Luz headlining a 650-capacity venue goes to show just how far this surf-noir quartet has come in four years. The summer release of the Ty Segall-produced Weirdo Shrine, their second full-length on Hardly Art, did the trick in transforming them from promising locals to national contenders (singer-guitarist Shana Cleveland’s fine solo debut, Holy Rollers, didn’t hurt). It’s as if the Shangri-Las and the Ventures formed a supergroup with four-part harmonies, sun-warped guitars, and sinuous rhythms, but the lyrics dig deeper than that description suggests, since Charles Burns’s devastating graphic novel Black Hole provided thematic inspiration. If an adaptation of his Seattle-set saga ever makes its way to the big screen, let’s hope La Luz provide the score. KATHY FENNESSY
