A lot happens in our scene each week. In an attempt to capture what you might've missed, we gather up noteworthy moments and package them in one convenient post every weekend. Check out this week's roundup below!
1. Taco Bell is showing California punk rockers SWMRS, whose debut album was ranked one of our best from 2016, some love in their new commercial. Check it out below!
The band’s song “Figuring It Out” plays in the background, and it’s only fitting since SWMRS are currently one of Taco Bell’s Feed The Beat artists. The Feed The Beat list also includes the likes Beach Weather, Speak Low If You Speak Love, Waterparks and more.
