2004 Tour

As the supporting act for the Ravonettes, The Hiss played The El Rey Theater in Los Angeles on April 6th.  The lights dimmed and the
drummer, Todd Galpin, kicked into a beat, then from behind the stage climbed the rest of The Hiss.  Lead singer and guitarist Adrian Barrera
screamed the opening tune into his guitar, setting a mood for the rest of the set.  There was very little stage patter between songs such as
Brass Tacks, Clever Kicks, and Back On The Radio.  The Hissís sound is unique yet firmly rooted in classic rock, with songs you can sing the chorus to half way through your first time hearing them, like youíve known these songs for years.  After tearing through their 40 minute set
the band simply walked off stage, leaving their guitars on the stage with the amps humming, leaving the crowd wanting more.
