Every high school has a bunch of kids that will inevitably form a band. They?ll play a mix of cool songs they like and probably learn enough contemporary dance tunes to get booked at the gym for school functions.
And, in truth, most of those bands will, honest and truly, suck in the real world. The musicians will think they?re hot stuff until they share a stage with more mature, more experienced acts. It?s all part of natural selection: that?s where there is only one Pearl Jam and a thousand Milli Vanillis.
Which brings us to an L.A. sensation called ACIDIC.
This is not your hippy grandmother?s high school pop band.
These kids sound about a decade older than their actual age and experience level. They exude a hard, sonic sound that?s a bit Los Angeles, a bit mid-90s Seattle. And until fairly recently, they were all in or barely out of high school.
They also have a new CD just out called ?Getting Lucky??okay, that sounds like a high school boy?s brain at work, actually. You can order it on iTunes, a the bands website, AcidicBand.com or at MrMedia.com.
Frankly, I?m not sure how these young men have been able to play in the bars that they have, such as the famed Whiskey-a-Go-Go and The House of Blues; it?s a question I?ll definitely have to ask ACIDIC lead singer and lead guitarist Michael Gossard. So let?s bring him on.

MICHAEL GOSSARD AUDIO EXCERPT: "We're transitioning into 'manhood' and 'responsibility.' We wanted to poke fun at the idea of inexperience and having to learn. And failing."
