Portland indie rockers The Shivas are in the process of touring their new Dark Thoughts album and they’re playing this Long Beach show shortly after a gig at the Hi-Hat. “Dark Thoughts has to do with all the fears, all the negative thoughts, all the bad things in our head — looking those in the eye,” they told us. “And it’s not just personal things, but cultural and societal norms and expectations.” That’s all evident in their beautifully evocative dream-pop. “We will be playing a bunch of songs from the new album and lots of our other songs, most likely a couple songs we didn’t write as well,” they added. Sounds perfect. Lunch Lady, Co-Ed and Cowboy Social also play.

The Shivas play with Lunch Lady at 8 p.m. on Sunday, November 3 at Alex’s Bar.
