Ah, nothing bespeaks summer quite like drinking an overpriced bottle of domestic beer at an indie music dive bar. And that’s where I found myself last Friday. Relax Bar has become a local fave amongst heavy indie rock fans, and it (gratefully) stands in stark contrast to the celeb spotting glitz clubs just a mile or so up Hollywood Blvd. The talent on display was an Athens, Georgia band called Music Hates You, which kicks out heavy, quasi-metal riffs underneath coarse, hard-hitting vocals. I spoke with lead singer Noah Ray after the gig. He talked about the current scene in Athens compared to other areas of the country and answered my question about how he’d change the indie music scene at large, which you’ll find similar to the sentiments of Tacoma, Washington band Highlight Bomb.
