This event is 21 and over
Numb.er is the sonic brainchild of Los Angeles based photographer and visual artist Jeff Fribourg. With a
background in graphic design, Fribourg imbues his work with a sense of architectural composition,
layering angular guitar riffs and analog synths over throbbing drums and driving bass.
Fribourg developed his love affair with synthesizers -- and his open-minded approach to music -- as a
founding member of LA psych-kraut favorites Froth. However, it was only with the creation of Numb.er
that he was able to fully explore his eclectic musical inclinations. Combining elements of punk, shoegaze
and post-punk, the project never commits to a singular worldview, allowing Fribourg’s vision to go
anywhere without sounding ironic or forced.
With the release of Goodbye, the band’s first LP due in late May on felte, Numb.er offers a genre-defying
sonic document that finds them maximizing the creative potential of the studio while always remaining
true to their dynamic and arresting live sound. Mixed and mastered by Mikey Young of Total Control,
Numb.er takes a carefully orchestrated approach to chaos and adds Fribourg’s own subtle knack for
memorable hooks and soft, melodic passages.
Denee on vocals and Ty and Emmett on bass
