The Veritones have returned from our summer tour to LA, which was full of sightseeing, gigs, excellent food, and relaxing days at the beach. We really enjoyed performing at different venues in the area, which included a few local schools and Room 5, where we got to catch up with a few of our alums, Raquel Toledo ’10 and Jennifer Stetson ’01, who showed up to watch us perform and were kind enough to treat us to our first In-N-Out Burger afterwards. We even had a few run-ins with celebrities, and were met by enthusiastic audiences at every turn, including an incredibly friendly man who taught us how to surf after hearing us sing! Our excursions to Hollywood, Rodeo Drive, and different beaches in the area surrounding LA made us appreciate all that the west coast has to offer as well as the convenience of Boston’s public transportation system. You can check out pictures of our tour here.
Special thanks to Lucy and her parents, Brock Walsh and Joy Horowitz, for being so welcoming and making us feel at home during our stay in LA!
