On an unusually cold Thursday night in Santa Ana, Calif., Brooklyn, N.Y. based indie rockers Beach Fossils made The Observatory feel like a mini music festival on the beach. Even before the band went on stage, the commotion began throughout the night, with concertgoers eager to start a mosh pit in anticipation of Beach Fossils. Playing songs from their latest 2013 album, “Clash The Truth,” and also showing love to older records, the band did not disappoint. Whether you’re an avid fan and crowd-surfer, listener, or just someone who knows one or two songs, there’s something about Beach Fossils’ dreamy guitar riffs and vocals that draw you in and sound a little dreamier live.
