Video Spotlight: Papa at SXSW Music

Written by Rory Burbeck | July 25, 2014

Playing drums and being the lead singer in a band must be pretty tough, but, as an audience member, it’s also a lot of fun to watch. Los Angeles duo Papa is no exception to this. Although they were childhood friends while growing up in LA, Darren Weiss and bassist Danny Presant didn’t form Papa until 2008 when they were both attending college in New York City. So far, they’ve released an EP and a full-length album.

Those of you attending Lollapalooza have the opportunity to catch Papa next Saturday! If you’re seeking a little preview, you can watch the band performing three songs on the SXSW Radio Day Stage this past March. View “Ain’t It So” above; “If You’re My Girl, Then I’m Your Man” and “I Am The Lion King” are now available on YouTube as well!
