As a good chunk of the nation protested president-elect Donald Trump, FIDLAR popped up on Conan to deliver a seething yet surprisingly sharp performance of “West Coast”. Arguably the best track off their sophomore album — last year’s cruelly underrated Too — the poppy garage punk ditty skated by with an attitude that’s all too palpable for many Americans tonight. “I’m so sick of this stupid place,” Zac Carper sang as he scratched his long hair and looked around maniacally. “It’s so suburban and so boring.” No argument there, pal.
Watch above and revisit Danielle Bacher’s exceptional cover story on the band while you’re at it.
