Black Crystal Wolf Kids, recently called one of the 14 best cover bands of all time by InsideHook.com, plays no-holds-barred, crowd-interactive covers of Coachella-ready indie rock. The band’s recent packed gigs at venues like the House of Blues Sunset Strip and performances at events for the James Beard Foundation and San Diego’s Bacon & Barrels festival have established them as one of the region’s premier party-starters.
