Korey Dane

KOREY REACTION: Streetlight hosts Korey Dane, one of the new wave of songwriters getting buzz in Long Beach, on Tuesday.

THANKS TO SUBLIME and the two Doggs (Snoop and Nate), Long Beach is best known for ska-punk and hip-hop. But in the last year, another movement has taken root, with an outbreak of talented and popular indie singer/songwriters. It started with Avi Zahner-Isenberg's band Avi Buffalo, which is signed to SubPop and touring the world just a year and a half after dropping their first single. Now other LBC troubadours are getting some attention, like Korey Dane. The 22-year-old Dane won Buskerfest in Long Beach last year, and has released his first album, Loomer. The sound couldn't be more different than Avi Buffalo—whispered, rootsy songs of longing that counterbalance his melancholy voice with the sweet vocals of Tess Shapiro. Opening is another up-and-comer from Long Beach, country crooner Sam Outlaw.
