After releasing two self-titled albums as a San Diego bedroom punk keen on songs about goths and weed, Wavves' Nathan Williams saw his career flash before his eyes when a drug cocktail sunk his set at Barcelona's Primavera Sound, leading his drummer to quit and his tour to be cancelled. Four years later, Williams is dating indie-punk princess Bethany Cosentino, working with MTV and Adult Swim, and releasing his first LP with Mom + Pop, titled Afraid of Heights, on March 26. It's the kind of redemption that may only be possible in America. Expect a preview of Williams' new, more mature songs this Friday at Bottom of the Hill, and understand that it's likely the smallest place you'll see Wavves for a long time. Opening are the Los Angeles garage-punk misfits FIDLAR, who flirt with a Wavves-esque meltdown nearly every night.
