When I first heard California’s Wax Idols around 2015’s American Tragic album, I was sure I’d discovered a modern band as catchy as and with as well-written songs as The Pretenders, if Chrissie Hynde, James Honeyman-Scott, et al. were way more goth. That sounds perfect, right? It really is.

To truly understand the band, you need to hear their recent album Cautionary Tales or see them live at Rough Draft Bar & Books on Wednesday, Aug. 8.
