August 05. 2013 | By Samantha Saturday

“When the X Games booked us they must have thought ‘Who is the most extreme band we can get?'” jested Jesse Cohen of Tanlines with a grin on his face. The Brooklyn duo was just one of four groups to play at Club Nokia on Friday, coinciding with the 2013 X Games, being held in Los Angeles’ Nokia Plaza.

We made it just in time to catch Owl Mag favorite Robert DeLong, who had played Lollapalooza earlier in the day and hopped a flight back just in time.

Yet another treat came in the form of the aforementioned Tanlines. As their name suggests, Cohen and vocalist/guitarist Eric Emm brought a chilled out, tropical vibe to the theater.

Finally around midnight Australia’s finest electronic duo, The Presets, got the ground thundering beneath the crowd’s feet.
