The brother-sister pop confections of Blondfire made for a tasty Tuesday night at the latest edition of the KCSN/Buzz Bands LA local music series at the Federal Bar in North Hollywood. The L.A. based band anchored by Brazilian-American siblings Bruce and Erica Driscoll included their first single “Where the Kids Are,” as well as the title track off their forthcoming album for Warner (due in 2013), “Young Heart,” in an exuberant, crisp set. Western Scene, the new band from Tom Pritchard and Jason Burkhart, delivered some big hooks too, playing songs from an album in progress. And pop sophisticates Go West Young Man, who have a residency in October at the Central SAPC and an album, “Ages,” on the way, turned in a set that featured sharp guitar work, a two-saxophone attack and sweet keys. The next installment of the series is Oct. 23 (save the date) – which will be the Buzz Bands LA anniversary party.
