"“Live, they’re fearless, confident and ready to go off-script at a moment’s inspiration. It’s wild stuff, just as it absolutely should be...If Thee Commons aren’t the best live band in Los Angeles, they’re damn near the top."

"Thee Commons‘ cumbia happily submits to possession by psych, garage, and punk spirits — sinister and snarling, but forever bailable."
